Springfield Armory have further expanded their 2020 bolt-action rifle line with the new Model 2020 Rimfire. With six variants of the rifle available at launch, it fills a sizable niche for the 2020 platform with its .22 chambering.
Springfield notes that the Model 2020 Rimfire action features dual cocking cams and a hard chrome bolt. The 60-degree bolt throw enhances speed and ease of use while the interrupted picatinny rail delivers a solid foundation for a range of optics.
The Model 2020 Rimfire is offered in two primary versions — the wood-stocked Classic Model and the synthetic-stocked Target Model. The Classic is offered in four grades of Turkish walnut with a satin finish, while the Target features a reinforced polymer stock modeled after Springfield’s Model 2020 Waypoint. The Classic model is offered in four grades: Select Satin, Grade A, Grade AA, and Grade AAA. The grades indicate the quality of Turkish Walnut used in each stock.
The barrel of the Model 2020 Rimfire is 20 inches long and free-floated for its full length. As a result, the rifle will not suffer point of impact shift due to input against the stock. The Target Model is threaded to accept suppressors and muzzle devices while the Classic Model features a sporter contour.
Optimized for the .22 caliber action, the Model 700 pattern trigger is factory set at 4.5 lbs. The adjustable trigger can be tuned to user preference. The action is also designed to accept many aftermarket 700 pattern triggers.
Springfield Armory has indicated their confidence in the Model 2020 Rimfire rifles by promising a three-shot accuracy guarantee. Every configuration is guaranteed to shoot 1” or less at 50 yards with quality match-grade factory ammunition, in the hands of a skilled shooter.
MSRP of all variants of the Rimfire ranges from $434 to $1099, depending on configuration/stock materials.
