Volquartsen’s Red, White & Blue 22 Rifle

Volquartsen USA rifle

Volquartsen Firearms announced a limited edition Red, White & Blue rifle. The special .22 LR rifle is clearly detailed in the colors and style of the flag of the United States of America. These rifles are a variation of the company’s Lightweight model that are available in .17 HMR and .22 WMR in addition to the ubiquitous .22 LR.

On these rifles, Volquartsen Firearms use a thumbhole stock with a blue laminate finish. The barrel sleeve has a Type II anodized finish with a US flag design. The TG2000 trigger assembly has an anodized red guard.

In addition to the unique styling, Volquartsen Firearms included a number of performance features including:

  • CNC machined receiver made of stainless steel with integral Weaver type optic mount
  • 18.5″ threaded, match grade barrel
  • a forward blow compensator that adds two inches to the overall length of the gun
  • an overall length of 38″ and weight of 5.16 pounds (unloaded)
  • one 10-round magazine

According to the company, there will only be 100 of these rifle made, and the guns will only be available through Davidson’s Gallery of Guns. The guns cannot be ordered directly from Volquartsen Firearms. The suggested retail price on these is $1,534. I would expect that the limited number of these being made that most sales will be made at or above the MSRP. Each rifle will have a special serial number.

    that looks tacky to me. Should’a gone with a three-coloured laminate stock. That stock as is is just a Boyds production item. Nothin special about it.

    • Edeco

      yeah, too many textures; wood, semi-photorealistic-print, the barrel is like brushed while the reciever is satin.

    • Twilight sparkle

      Boyd’s makes good stuff for the money, the stock would have made sense if they wanted to make a rifle that was an entry level match 22

    • Kivaari

      They make a black one.

      • iksnilol

        I know, but a red, white and blue one would fit the theme better than the blue alone.

    I NEED that barrel in my life.

  • bjeremy

    Holy wow that’s ugly.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      … But… I love America tho. Conflicted!

      • bjeremy

        Check out the America rifle by Rainier Arms in their country series (if you haven’t already)….good looking and patriotic!

  • Twilight sparkle

    Didn’t ruger have issues with the magnum chambered 10/22 style rifles?

    • Ilike_waffles

      Yes they did, Volquartsen and Magnum research have sorted out the problems that Ruger had. I have a Magnum Research 22 mag, its an excellent gun, had zero problems with it. As a side note, Volquartsen has the new 17 WSM (thats a 3000FPS+ 10/22 style) offering thats in production. Have no doubts, if Volquartsen has their name on it, its good.

      • Twilight sparkle

        I’ve seen the stuff from magnum research before, isreal produces some interesting guns. It seems like if the only issue is receiver strength then magnum research and Volquartsen have probably fixed that with the beefy designs they have.

        I don’t always trust the name of something, Volquartsen has more than proven themselves for parts but you’ve gotta know how to put those parts together and in this case they probably did great but it looks really ugly.

    Hmmmmmm shouldn’t the star field facing forward…?

    I’m not American, just askin’.

    • Scott

      The field, or canton, that is the blue section w/ stars, should be top left, no matter what orientation the flag is ‘hung’. Landscape or portrait to use familiar terminology. You’ll see it incorrectly in a lot of movies, tv, etc.

      • iksnilol

        Yeah, but something about the flag riding on the winds of victory and not retreating.

        That’s why you see shoulder patches with the canton in the top right (if on the right shoulder).

  • Kivaari

    This should shoot. I recently bought a pretty basic Ruger K10-22 with a Volquartsen trigger and bolt assembly, and I never had a 10-22 as accurate or easy to shoot. These cost money, but if you want accuracy, Volquartsen parts will give it to you.
