I first learned of the Volquartsen line of rifles and pistols on Top Shot Season 3, and I then had the opportunity to shoot a Volquartsen SuperLite rifle during my time on Season 4. We were shooting offhand at soda pop openers at 75 feet, and gumballs on tees at 35 feet with a Volquartsen. During the competition, I said to myself, “when I get home, I have to look into getting a Volquartsen. They are beyond awesome.” I’m now the proud owner of a Volquartsen 10/22, and am in love with it.
The Volquartsen line of pistols and rifles are like .22 cruise missiles. Aim at your target, and the high precision gun does the rest. The fun part of about getting your own Volquartsen is the number of customization options available. They have varying barrels, stocks, calibers (.22LR, .22WMR, .17HMR, .17Mach2) and muzzle brakes depending on what kind of performance, feel, and aesthetics you’re looking for.
The 2lb trigger is nice and crisp with a short reset. The 21.5″ I-fluted barrel is lightened through the fluting process, which also helps cool the barrel. The forward-blow compensator is machined from 416 stainless steel and has sixteen precision machined ports.
A huge thanks to the great folks at Volquartsen for making excellent precision rifles and pistols! www.Volquartsen.com.
