Volquartsen Firearms is a well known company in the gun industry. Its work with rimfire rifles and pistols is near legendary in the minds of many people. When Ruger introduced the 10/22 Takedown rifle, Volquartsen supported it. Now, the company is offering a limited run of 10/22 Takedown rifles that may be of interest to .22 LR shooters.
The limited edition gun is built on the Ruger receiver, but has a range of other parts to make this a solid upgrade over the stock rifle. The company uses one of its own barrels that is threaded and comes with a compensator style muzzle device. On top of the barrel is a Picatinny rail for the addition of a scope or holo site. By attaching the optic to the barrel, there is no need to re-zero the scope after the rifle has been taken down. The barrel has an OD green finish.
Volquartsen uses a Magpul Take Down stock on this rifle. The stock is also OD green to match the barrel. Unloaded, the gun weighs approximately 5.3 pounds. The company set the price at $900 for these rifles. Although it does not specify how many guns will be made, the company does state that these are a “limited run.” Presumably, you should get one sooner rather than later if it is of interest to you.
