A NEW LEVEL OF INNOVATION. You have not seen, nor held, nor shot anything like the new Wildcat™. Winchester Repeating Arms® has been building rimfires for more than a century, but this year we've got an all‐new rifle that's taking the rimfire autoloader to a whole new level of value and performance. Actually, a whole new level of everything.

Meet the Wildcat™. LIGHT, RUGGED, ACCURATE AND ULTRA‐RELIABLE, the Wildcat is going to be the rimfire rifle you reach for whenever you want to hunt small game, teach someone to shoot or spend the afternoon rolling some tin cans around the range. Get your hands on the new Wildcat and you'll never let go.

The Wildcat™ uses a STRIKER‐FIRED DESIGN (much like a centerfire bolt‐action rifle) that provides faster lock time and a lighter trigger pull than traditional hammer‐fired rimfire designs. 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.

The LOWER RECEIVER ASSEMBLY of the Wildcat™ is easily removed from the upper assembly by pushing a single button located at the rear of the upper assembly with your finger. No tools are required. The MANUAL SAFETY BUTTON is easily reversible so it's perfect for both right‐ and left‐handed shooters.

The ROTARY MAGAZINE has metal feed lips that offer longer life and more reliable feeding. The magazine activates the bolt stop system to lock the bolt open after the last shot for safety and convenience. One 10‐round magazine is included. The Wildcat™ also accepts a wide range of aftermarket magazines that are compatible with the 10/22®.

The MAGAZINE ejects right into your hand. The magazine release is fully ambidextrous by using the side‐mounted rails or the release tab just forward of the magazine.

The FULLY‐ADJUSTABLE GHOST RING REAR SIGHT and RAMPED POST FRONT SIGHT are easy to see under varying light conditions.
