Winchester Repeating Arms

The Wildcat .22 LR rifle is designed to take the rimfire autoloader to a whole new level of value and performance. The Wildcat uses a striker-fired action design (much like a centerfire bolt-action rifle) to provide faster locktime and a lighter trigger pull than traditional hammer-fired rimfire designs. In addition, the hemispheric firing-pin tip focuses its striking energy more efficiently, creating a deeper rim indent that gives more reliable ignition with all types of .22 LR ammo.
