    Here are some new rifles/shotguns from the SHOT show thought I'd post it cause I'm bored :dunno: The descriptions are by shooting editor David E. Petzal btw.


    Winchester Wildcat:

    Increasingly, American gunmakers are turning to eastern-bloc countries for their low-priced models, and this Russian-built .22 rimfire will sell for about $212. It looks oddly like the old Moisin-Nagant military rifle, but it's a very nice .22 bolt-action that offers a lot regardless of its price. The ones I shot were accurate, well made, had good trigger pulls, and worked without a hitch. Shoot this one and you can practically feel the hot breath of the Cossacks.

    Browning T-Bolt:

    This is the second incarnation of a very classy little .22 rifle that Browning made in the 1960s and 70s. It's a straight-pull bolt-action whose locking lug cams into the side of the receiver. This version is not quite as slick and smooth as the original, but it probably costs a lot less to make, and it sells for around $400. It's a sleek, graceful gun that should do very well.

    Remington Model 105 autoloading shotgun:

    This one has been in the works for nearly 5 years, and is truly a new shotgun. It's a bottom-loading, bottom ejecting design with a titanium/graphite receiver and a retail price tag of about $1200. This one blew everyone away: great looks, great handling, light, very soft-kicking and the easiest loading of any auto. Remington really did this one right; they'll be back-ordered for 10 years.

    Remington Mauser: (too new for a photo)
    I didn't get the model name for this one, but who cares? I didn't care much for the rifle. It's a true Mauser made in Yugoslavia or Czechoslovakia, or one of those depressing places, and is one of the roughest guns I've ever shot. Not to mention a truly dreadful trigger. I hope it sells at a very low price; it's the only way this gun is going to survive.

    Remington Model 750:

    A much-improved version of the Remington autoloader. Far better stock, significantly improved gas system, and now, carbine and small-caliber versions will be available. Same dreadful trigger as always.

    Savage Model 12 Precision Varminter:
    [​IMG]
    Here is a super gun from Savage. It's essentially a benchrest action with left-hand loading and ejection, a right-hand bolt, a super-heavy 26-inch barrel, and of course the Savage Accu-Trigger. The small-ported action provides extreme rigidity, and the gun looks like it's going to be a sub-half-minute rifle. This is a very, very sophisticated design for $900. It comes in .204, .223, and .22/250.

    Savage Classic:
    [​IMG]
    This is as close to a good-looking Savage as you can get in this sorry world. It's a nicely finished rifle, and the clunky-looking Model 110 bolt action has been somewhat streamlined to help with its appearance. It's a big step forward, and if Savage ever comes up with a way to keep their amazing accuracy in a really good looking rifle, they'll put everyone else out of business.


    Weatherby Ultramark:
    [​IMG]
    Back in the 1960s, Weatherby offered an upgraded Mark V rifle with the moniker Weatherby Custom on the floorplate. This is essentially the same thing. The stock wood is not exhibition by any means, but it is nicer than standard, the the laser-cut checkering is truly outstanding. How they do that? If you'd like a better-looking-than-standard Mark V, here is your baby

    Winchester Firearms
    This year Winchester is introducing a number of brand-new models, some interesting commemorative models and an improvement on a popular bolt-action rifle. Fans of autoloading big-game rifles will want to take a look at Winchester's new Super X Rifle (SXR). The new gas-operated semi-auto features a modern gas system, detachable magazine feed, removable trigger group for easy cleaning, rigid alloy receiver and hammer-forged barrel. The stock and forearm are satin-finished walnut. The SXR has an empty weight of a trim 7.25 pounds, and it's drilled and tapped for scopes. Initially, it will be offered in .30/06 with a 22-inch barrel and in .270 WSM, .300 WSM and .300 Win. Mag. with a 24-inch barrel. SRP: $811 to $839.
    Lever-action enthusiasts will find a new Model 94 series with a takedown design inspired by the original Takedown, first issued in 1895. This line consists of three new models in several big-game calibers.
    The Model 94 Short Hunter Takedown has a compact 18-inch barrel, a full-length magazine and a blued receiver and forearm cap. The thin front blade and smaller rear aperture of the scaled-down XS brand ghost-ring sight combine to produce a precise sight picture. When taken down, the gun is less than 20 inches long. Calibers include the .450 Marlin, .44 Rem. Mag. and .30/30 Win. SRP: $587.
    The barrel of the Model 94 Timber Scout Takedown has a rail-base attachment for a long-eye-relief scope with quick-detachable mounts. The walnut stock has checkering on the semi-pistol grip and forearm. XS ghost-ring sights are also included. The Timber Scout comes in the same calibers as the Short Hunter. SRP: $669.
    The Model 94 Trail's End Takedown has a 20-inch round barrel and a blued finish on the barrel and receiver. Other features include a straight buttplate and extended forearm, a Marble's front sight with gold bead and a satin-finished walnut stock. It will be offered in .357 Magnum, .38/55 Win., .45 Long Colt, .44 Rem. Mag. and .30/30 Win. SRP: $599. The popular Model 70 Coyote gets a new look with the introduction of the Model 70 Laminated Coyote Outback Stainless. The satin-finished gray laminated stock has been extensively lightened with the addition of flow-through cutaways in both the buttstock and forend areas. The stock also sports an extra bipod stud. The Controlled Round Push Feed action will be offered in super short, short and long in the full line of Model 70 calibers. SRP: $1,016 to $1,047.

    To commemorate 100 years of America's most popular centerfire round—the .30/06—Winchester is offering the Model 1885 .30/06 Centennial Hunter single-shot rifle and the Model 70 Super Grade Centennial .30/06. The Centennial Hunter features a 28-inch full octagonal barrel with a special gold-embellished .30/06 seal on the blue engraved receiver. SRP: $1,617.
    Continuing the commemorative spirit, Winchester will celebrate "70 years of the Model 70" in 2006. The Model 70 was the company's first centerfire bolt-action rifle designed for sportsmen and has become known as "the rifleman's rifle." To mark the anniversary, Winchester is including a commemorative grip cap on the Model 70 Pro Shadow, Shadow Elite Camo, Stainless and Pro Shadow Stainless. These models come with the new WinSorb recoil pad. Booth #301. (800-333-3288; winchesterguns.com)
