You have not seen, nor held, nor shot anything like the autoloading Wildcat™ rifle. Winchester Repeating Arms® has been building legendary rimfires for more than a century and the Wildcat builds on our legacy of innovation. The Wildcat wasn’t designed to be another “me too 22,” this rimfire autoloader brings a whole new level of value and performance.
The Wildcat doesn’t just look different, it is different. Through the extensive use of tough polymers and modern design principles, the Wildcat has a number of features you just don’t see with other rifles. Like a centerfire rifle, the Wildcat is a striker-fired design – not hammer fired – for improved trigger performance with faster locktime and a lighter pull weight. A hemispherical firing pin offers improved reliability with rimfire ammunition.
The lower receiver assembly contains the trigger group, reversible safety and bolt assembly and is easily removed for service with the push of a button. With the lower receiver assembly removed, the bore can be cleaned from the chamber end. The polymer upper receiver assembly features an integrated Picatinny rail for optics. Dual, ambidextrous magazine releases and easy to reach bolt lock and release buttons make operation easy.
The Wildcat features a durable, 10-round polymer magazine. The rotary design is reliable, easy to load and has a bolt stop that locks the bolt back after the last round has been fired. The Wildcat also accepts magazines that fit 10/22® rifles.
A wide range of shooters will appreciate the comfortable fit of the tough polymer stock. The lightweight stock design also contributes to the approximately four pound weight of the Wildcat. The steep grip angle improves finger-to-trigger reach. Need a little extra length of pull or height added to the comb for optics? A length of pull spacer that adds 3/4″ to the stock is available, as is a clip on cheek riser that raises your cheek 1/2″.

A NEW LEVEL OF INNOVATION. You have not seen, nor held, nor shot anything like the Wildcat®. Winchester Repeating Arms® has been building rimfires for more than a century, but now 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 Wildcat and you’ll never let go.
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.
A PAIR OF ALLEN WRENCHES, one for adjusting the rear sight and the other for removing the stock are stored in the lower receiver assembly for easy access.
The SLIDE LOCK BUTTON on the front of the trigger guard allows you to manually lock the action open for added safety during storage or transporting.
The FULLY-ADJUSTABLE GHOST RING REAR SIGHT and RAMPED POST FRONT SIGHT are easy to see under varying light conditions.
The Wildcat® has a PRECISION BUTTON-RIFLED CHROMOLY STEEL BARREL with a recessed target-style crown for greater accuracy.
You can release the bolt using the BOLT RELEASE BUTTON located on the left side of the upper assembly, or by pulling back on the cocking handle with a loaded magazine in place.
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 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 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. Additional magazines are also available from your Winchester Repeating Arms® retailer.
SPEED LOAD/UNLOAD lets you manually relieve spring pressure on the magazine follower. Each cartridge effortlessly slips in and out during loading and unloading.
The Wildcat® also accepts a wide range of aftermarket magazines that are compatible with the 10/22®.
FRONT AND REAR SLING EYELETS are molded right into the stock.
The UPPER ASSEMBLY has an INTEGRAL PICATINNY TOP RAIL so you can easily add your choice of optics or electronic sights.
A PICATINNY RAIL SECTION on the underside of the forearm tip lets you attach an optional bipod, sling mount, light or other accessory. The included rail cover protects your hand from the rail’s edges and corners when accessories are not attached.
The Wildcat® features a HIGHLY-ERGONOMIC AMBIDEXTROUS MOLDED POLYMER STOCK with skeletonized buttstock, upright ribbed pistol grip and rugged textured matte finish.
CLEANING THE BARREL IS A SNAP because you insert the cleaning rod through the rear access port to brush out the bore and chamber from the breech end, protecting the barrel crown.
