    Winchester Wildcat

    Any takers? I have a Ruger 10/22 in polymer. Would take a lot to get me to bite.

    Thereís not much that hasnít been done in the rimfire world, but somehow, Winchester has managed to put out an innovative new rifle. Hereís what you need to know about the Wildcat design and whether it stands a chance against the test of time.

    Ruger 10/22 is the gold standard in plinking rifles. Would take me a lot to consider replacing mine.

    No thanks I will stick with my old antiquated steel and wood rifles.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    That is ugly. I think I would buy another 10/22.

    I'll pass on this one.

    I don't think the eight 10/22s in the safe would like having a plastic fantastic tossed in with them.

    No, my next 22 will either be a bolt gun or have an on board air tank.

    I'll keep the 10/22, thank you.

    Depending on price and reviews I may look at one. I have 10/22's and I have Marlins, maybe a Winchester could be fun.

    Iíd give one a try, I think.

    At 4 pounds, itís a worthy consideration over a Nylon 66, imho...if it's proven reliable.

    MSRP'd at $250, probably street price of $200-225...Iíll keep my eyes open for a lightly used one in a year or so in the $150 range.

    If it were also take-down I'd be giving it a real hard look...

    Not for me. I'm old and not a fan of plastic rifles in any caliber. I like wood and blued steel. JMO
