Volquartsen Introduces the VF-ORYX Rifle

Carroll, IA ? The VF-ORYX is the latest addition to the Volquartsen line of 22 LR rifles. The VF-ORYX features a CNC-machined stainless steel receiver. This receiver features an integral 20 MOA rail making it ideal for long-range 22 LR shooting.

Volquartsen Firearms President, Scott Volquartsen commented, "With the popularity of precision 22 LR rifle shooting continuing to grow, we felt this was the perfect time to introduce the VF-ORYX. This chassis set up is perfect for this. The 22 LR is also a great way to introduce new shooters to the long range game as well. Teaching them how to properly use an optic, learn their holdovers, and manage their breathing to execute the shot, long range 22 LR is ideal for competitors and recreational shooters alike."

The Snake Fluted Barrel is threaded into the receiver increasing rigidity between barrel and action.

As with all Volquartsen rifles, it features CNC-machined and wire-EDM internal components for unparalleled reliability. The CNC-machined bolt includes a titanium round firing pin and tuned extractor for improved performance and function.

The TG2000 trigger group provides a crisp, clean 2.25lb trigger pull. Both pretravel and overtravel are user-adjustable to the shooter's preference.

The VF-ORYX is set into the ORYX chassis from MDT. This one-piece integrated aluminum chassis and buttstock is designed to improve the consistency and accuracy of your rifle whether you're shooting from the bench, a bipod, or a prone position.

The ORYX chassis also features a free-floating barrel, contoured forend grip, adjustable cheek riser, and overmolded pistol grip for added comfort and stability. It also features a .25" spacer in the buttpad for adjustable LOP.

The ORYX chassis is available as a stand-alone product.
