Rimfire rifles are incredibly handy. They’re used in lightning-fast competition, for hunting, and for dispatching unwanted guests, regardless of how many legs they have. Some of the most popular rimfire rifles have been semi-automatic models. Volquartsen, known to many as masters of rimfire, has now entered a new rimfire option into the rifle market. This one, however, is not chambered in .22LR, and is not always in one piece. Introducing the new VT2 Takedown Rifle from Volquartsen.

Volquartsen @ TFB:

The VT2 Takedown rifle is perfect for a hunting trip, stowed away with your gear during your next overlanding adventure, or tucked into a backpack for quick accessibility.

Whether you are a small game or varmint hunter, adventurer, overlander, or survivalist, the VT2 Takedown is ready when you are!

The takedown mechanism is simple, requiring the user to depress a takedown button and pull on a locking lever. Once taken down, the rifle can easily be placed in a bag, or you can swap calibers. The VT2 Takedown Rifle is not only available in .22 WMR and .17 HMR, but is swappable between the two. The M-LOK compatible handguard is available in either a 6″ or a 12″ version. The muzzle is threaded 1/2 x 28, should you want to change muzzle devices or suppress it. An aluminum thread protector is included. The VT2 only comes with one magazine, though it uses 10/22 patterned magazines, so you probably have some already.


  • Caliber: .22 WMR, .17 HMR
  • Capacity: 9
  • Operation: Semi-automatic
  • Barrel length: 16.5″
  • Overall length: 36.75″
  • MSRP: $2,352

If you want to add this little shooter to your collection of rimfire plinkers, you can find more information on the Volquartsen website.

    Ruger GAVE UP on their semi in WMR, for a reason. And Remington RECALLED their 17HMR semi.

    Lovely gun. At that price? No freaking way. However, I'm sure that there are those who disagree. More power to them.
