Springfield Armory is excited to announce its latest addition to the rimfire shooting community – the new Model 2020 Rimfire series of rifles. The Springfield Model 2020 Rimfire is a new bolt-action platform featuring either a classic walnut wood stock that comes in various grades, or the choice of several variants of “target” oriented versions that feature bull barrels, and synthetic stocks. Best of all, however, is that these rifles start at around $430, and are apparently guaranteed to hold 1″ of accuracy at 50 yards with factory match ammunition when shot by a “skilled shooter.” 2-MOA isn’t bad for a rimfire rifle but we’ll have to test that out when we get one of these to the range – for now, let’s check out what Springfield has to say about their new rifles in the press release below.

Meet the New Model 2020 Rimfire Rifles from Springfield Armory

The Model 2020 Rimfire family offers shooters a refined rimfire rifle with all the quality and performance you’ve come to expect from Springfield Armory. Offered in both Classic wood-stocked and Target synthetic-stocked versions, the Model 2020 Rimfire carries an impressive accuracy guarantee and the heirloom quality of a firearm you will keep in your family for generations.

Outperforming other rifles in its class, the Model 2020 Rimfire action features dual cocking cams for lightning-fast, smooth cycling and a hard chrome bolt, ensuring flawless operation. The 60-degree bolt throw enhances speed and ease of use while the interrupted picatinny rail delivers a solid foundation for the optic of your choice.

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 three grades of Turkish walnut with a satin finish, while the Target features a reinforced polymer stock modeled after the popular Model 2020 Waypoint.

Each Model 2020 Rimfire ships with our .22 caliber rotary magazine. Crafted from durable polymer, the magazine holds 10 rounds and delivers them smoothly into the chamber. The rifle and magazine are cross compatible with Ruger® 10/22® pattern magazines of the same capacity, offering versatility without compromise.

Crafted from premium Turkish Walnut the Classic model is offered in three grades: Select Satin, Grade AA, and Grade AAA. Each grade of wood offers classic style and craftsmanship, allowing you to choose the degree of figure and grain to suit your style.

The premium barrel of the Model 2020 Rimfire is 20” 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 for a day afield.

Other neat features of the new rifles include an interrupted Picatinny rail which is removable, a threaded bolt handle, integrated sling swivels, rubber recoil pads, hard chrome bolts, and a comfortable 13.45″ length of pull. Finally, these new rifles will use Remington 700 pattern triggers meaning you have access to a litany of aftermarket triggers which could seriously improve the performance of the rifle if the stock trigger turns out not to be enough for you. These rifles start off pricing at $434 for a synthetic stocked target model, all the way up to $1,099 for a AAA Grade Turkish Walnut Stocked Classic Rifle which features a 20-inch 1:16″ twist sporter contoured barrel, and an adjustable Remington 700 style trigger group with a hanger system for compatibility with other triggers. To see a complete list of all available Springfield Model 2020 Rimfire rifles, you can visit this page here. You can be sure that a full review of one of these rifles will be coming shortly on The Rimfire Report so stay tuned for that every Monday!

Springfield Armory stands behind all Model 2020 Rimfire rifles and promises rock solid performance and accuracy. 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.

    Turkish, that explains it.

    This really doesn't fit into the rest of Springfield's brand style: it's not a retro Fudd gun, Croatian polymer striker pistol, or a cringey named AR.

    How is it in today's market you can market anything as a precision rifle without an adjustable cheek riser....
