The Volquartsen VT2 takedown rifle has been available .22 WMR and .17 HMR, but the company is now adding .22 LR to the lineup.
Volquartsen is a respected name in the rimfire world, and the company’s VT2 has been a popular choice of takedown rimfire rifle since it was first released in 2022. Initially, the rifle was only offered in .22 WMR and .17 HMR, but Volquartsen has just announced the addition of a .22 LR VT2 to the lineup.
While .22 WMR and .17 HMR certainly have their advantages, ammo availability and price per round are not among them. For those who want a quality, semi-auto takedown rimfire rifle chambered for something more suitable for general plinking, the .22 LR VT2 is now an option. Besides the new chambering, the .22 LR VT2 is otherwise identical to the existing models.
Just like with other VT2 rifles, the new model’s barrel can be removed without any tools, only requiring the push of a button and the lifting of a lever. Other notable features include M-LOK handguards (available in 6- and 12-inch lengths), a 0-MOA Picatinny rail on the aluminum receiver and a 1/2×28 threaded muzzle (a thread protector and compensator are both included). It also takes standard AR-pattern stocks and grips and the package ships with one 10-round magazine.
Scott Volquartsen, president of the company, said this about the new VT2 model:
A takedown platform is only as good as its repeatability. This reason is why it was critical for us to be able to design a takedown rifle that not only required no tools, but was able to be accurate, repeatable, and reliable every time its reassembled…
The Volquartsen VT2 in .22 LR is available now and has an MSRP of $2,261.
