The heart of the rifle is the custom-grade Model 2020 action, designed to take advantage of the most advanced manufacturing methods to hold incredibly tight tolerances. The Cerakote finished action features an integral recoil lug and is machined from pre-hardened stainless steel with EDM cut raceways. The fluted bolt can be disassembled without tools and employs dual cocking cams and an enhanced extractor for high-pressure loads. The result is a production rifle that delivers levels of precision usually found only on custom rifles that have been blueprinted and trued. This allows each Model 2020 to carry a remarkable .75″ MOA accuracy guarantee.
Springfield Model 2020 Waypoint 6.5 Creedmoor
The Springfield Model 2020 Waypoint 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle is a great choice from Springfield’s new series of Bolt Action Hunting Rifles. Balancing lightweight construction with rugged durability, the Model 2020 Waypoint 6.5 CM is the firearm needed to bag the biggest game.
The Springfield Model 2020 Waypoint 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle gives hunters a choice of 8 options within the 2020 Waypoint 6.5 CM Bolt Action Rifle series. Choices include either Evergreen or Ridgeline custom painted carbon fiber stocks with or without an adjustable cheek comb. The Model 2020 features an impressive .75 MOA accuracy guarantee. Each Waypoint rifle is 100% free-floated and is available with a carbon fiber or traditional fluted stainless steel barrel.
“The Model 2020 has arrived and marks a new dawn for modern bolt-action rifles from Springfield Armory,” said company CEO Dennis Reese. “It sets the standard for precision manufacturing, performance and accuracy from a premium, American-made rifle.”
The first in this new family of rifles is the Model 2020 Waypoint, the result of years of engineering, testing and evaluation, combined with premium-grade components found on rifles costing thousands of dollars more. Proudly made in the USA, the Model 2020 Waypoint is built to deliver the accuracy and performance you should demand from a custom grade rifle.
Designed for the most demanding hunters, the Model 2020 Waypoint strikes a critical balance between lightweight and rugged durability. This is achieved through the use of a premium, hand-painted, 100% carbon fiber stock by AG Composites that is hand-laid and pillar bedded for precision and repeatability. Available in both adjustable and standard configurations, the stock features five QD mounts for versatile carry, M-Lok slots for mounting bipods and accessories, and is hand-painted in your choice of Ridgeline or Evergreen camo.
In addition, a free-floated carbon-fiber sleeved barrel — with subsurface fluting that reduces weight and provides cooling channels to promote cold bore to warm bore repeatability — further enhances the Waypoint’s packable weight and rock-solid performance. The Waypoint is also offered with a traditional fluted, Cerakote finished, stainless steel barrel.
