The Vudoo Gunworks Lightweight Carbon Sinister Precision Rimfire Rifle

Precise rifles can take one of two methods depending on your task. On the one end are very heavy guns used for competition and on the other hand, are more nimble lightweight guns like the new Vudoo Gun Works Carbon Sinister. This new carbon fiber stocked rifle weighs in between 6lbs and just a touch under 8lbs depending on the options selected. This new precision rimfire rifle is Vudoo Gun Works’ first offering for hunting and sport shooting enthusiasts who want a precise yet lighter weight rimfire rifle to carry along with them. However, Vudoo states that this rifle is still precise enough to straddle both the competition and hunting spheres of the rimfire world.

The new Carbon Sinister has a “heavy” configuration that features an adjustable cheekpiece, Picatinny rail where the sling stud should be, and a long 22″ Helix Six carbon fiber wrapped barrel. This configuration weighs in at 7lbs and 13 oz. Other configurations with fewer features and shorter barrels come in at just 6lbs. All configurations of the new Carbon Sinister will feature a fusion of the much-loved V22 and Three 60 actions. The Carbon Sinister will come standard with the Altitude stock from Mesa Precision Arms and will be available in either an adjustable (38 oz) or non-adjustable (24-oz) configuration. The Altitude stock can be had in raw carbon fiber, Mohave, Shredded Anthracite, or Custom paint finishes.

Customers will have the choice between three different barrel manufacturers including Helix 6 Precision as mentioned before, Proof Research, or Bartlein Barrels. All of the barrels will be carbon fiber wrapped and options for length will range between 16.5-inches and 22-inches. As you can guess, these lightweight and high-tech rifles are going to set you back a few racks and you can expect to pay an MSRP of between $3,265 and $3,355 depending on the options selected. Would you be willing to put in that kind of cash for a .22LR rifle that can hold its own in a precision rimfire competition and is also light enough for pest control duty on the homestead? Let us know down in the comments!

    No. In for the "my 10/22 in an adjustable stock with scope and suppressor weigh in at 6.5lbs".

    Also shoots 1.2MOA with the right match ammo and 1.5-1.7MOA with most CCI stuff.

    Yeah, I imagine this thing can shoot better. But other than a competition, no thanks. Mine tips the scales at $900 for everything. Gun, stock (just replaced the crappy factory wood stock with a 10/22 factory adjustable), sling, 4x32 scope, trigger, extended bolt handle and silencer.

    If you are actually chasing varmints on your property and you need to justify spending $3000+ on something to whack them with extreme accuracy and subsonic, then just get a nice 300BO bolt gun and silencer. Almost certainly going to be more accurate for less money in test and field conditions. And have longer range (sorry, but a 180-220gr .308 at 1050fps is going to have substantially less drop and wind drift than a 36-45gr bullet at 950-1050fps). Plus hit those varmints WAY harder.

    If you just need to whack varmints at ranges where you need to justify something better than about 2MOA, then probably just a 22 hornet or 223 bolt gun is the way to go.

    About all this is really geared for is 22lr competition shooting, with the feel goods that it is light. There are substantially better ways to peel the onion of varmint shooting than spending almost $4000 before optic or can at any distance. And also substantially lighter and more accurate ways.

    I don't understand why no carbon barrel for .22 mag., same pressure as lr
