Volquartsen VT2 Takedown: 22 LR Accuracy

When it comes to rifle selection, portability matters. Whether you’re hunting squirrels in the woods, headed to the range for target practice, or traveling, it helps to have an easily transported firearm. The Volquartsen VT2 line of takedown rifles is designed for just that thanks to its easily operated levers and buttons that separate the gun into two compact pieces. This popular platform is now available in 22 LR, bringing a new level of versatility to the line.

Volquartsen states the VT2 Takedown rifle in 22 LR is ideal for everything from storing the gun with your gear during your next outdoor trek or placing it in your backpack for easy access during a hunt or hike. This rifle is designed for versatility and is useful for everyone, from the small game or varmint hunter to the overlander or survivalist. As the manufacturer says, the VT2 Takedown is ready when you are.

Disconnecting the two halves of the rifle is as simple as depressing the takedown button and releasing the locking lever with a downward pull. Doing those two things makes it possible for the barrel to slide out of the receiver. That’s all it takes for the gun to be reduced to a more compact size for storage or transport. To put the gun back together for use, slide the barrel into the receiver and return the locking lever to its original position.
