From Springfield Armory:
Springfield Armory is proud to introduce the Model 2020 family of bolt action hunting rifles. Precision manufactured in the USA, each Model 2020 is built to deliver the accuracy and performance expected from a custom grade rifle. The Model 2020 Waypoint features a premium carbon fiber stock and the option of a steel or carbon fiber barrel with an impressive .75 MOA accuracy guarantee.
Accuracy and performance begin with the all new Model 2020 action. Precision manufactured from premium materials, each Model 2020 action is the foundation for success and is designed to take advantage of today’s most advanced production techniques. Dual locking lugs on the fluted bolt run smoothly down EDM raceways for perfect, repeatable engagement while an optimized extraction cam provides robust, reliable extraction in any condition. Additionally, the bolt features dual cocking cams for ease of operation and toolless disassembly for maintenance.
Offering users a custom-grade firearm for thousands less than you would expect, the Model 2020’s receiver features top-tier features and refinements. Providing strength and repeatability is an integral machined recoil lug, and electrical discharge machining (EDM) of the bolt lug raceways ensures precision dimensions and smooth cycling. An enlarged ejection port, sliding extractor — for reliable operation in the most adverse conditions — and hybrid dual-plane feed ramp deliver reliable and repeatable performance.
Springfield Armory worked with AG Composites to develop the rifle’s premium line of carbon fiber stocks. When weight matters, carbon fiber’s exceptional capabilities make it the only choice. Each stock is hand-layed, made from 100% carbon fiber and pillar bedded for perfect marriage to the action.
With a weight as low as 6 lbs. 9 oz., the Waypoint and its carbon fiber stock strike the perfect balance between rock-solid strength and mobility.
The trigger is the most important interface between the rifle and shooter. The Waypoint’s trigger from TriggerTech features a low-profile, non-snag safety and employs the company’s Frictionless Release Technology. It’s adjustable from 2.5 – 5 pounds with a patented, free-floating roller for a crisp, clean and repeatable pull.
The Model 2020 Waypoint features a BSF barrel jacketed in a roll-wrapped carbon fiber sleeve and loaded under tension. This means 95 percent of the carbon fiber sleeve doesn’t contact the barrel, providing cooling air gaps and promoting cold bore to warm bore repeatability. In addition, fluting under the sleeve reduces weight and increases surface cooling area.
The result? Carbon fiber done the right way to deliver consistent accuracy. Each Waypoint rifle is 100% free-floated and is available with a carbon fiber or traditional fluted stainless steel barrel.
The Model 2020 Waypoint is the result of years of engineering, testing and evaluation, combined with premium grade components found on rifles costing thousands of dollars more. The rifle combines cutting-edge design with state-of-the-art materials to deliver the accuracy expected from a custom grade rifle. Accordingly, Springfield Armory stands behind all Model 2020 rifles with a rock-solid .75 MOA accuracy guarantee — for a three-shot group at 100 yards with quality match-grade factory ammunition, in the hands of a skilled shooter.
