NAT’L – GUN NEWS – The Lightest Weight Rifle Today – Meet the Volquartsen Ultralite Modshot Rimfire

While some firearms manufacturers have made their name for offering big bore hunting rifles and shotguns, others have stuck to specialty products. The name Volquartsen Firearms may not be quite as iconic as Colt or Remington, but shooters of rimfire small arms certainly know the name. The company was founded in 1974—and like many of today’s firearm industry giants, it started small with an idea to improve on what was already in the market. In the case of Volquartsen, it was about seeing a need to build a better and lighter rimfire, and that is what the Carroll, Iowa company has accomplished. Introduced at the 2020 SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show), Volquartsen’s Ultralite .22 LR with Modshot stock is the lightest rimfire configuration the company has released and likely is one of the lightest rifles on the market today. It is also easy to see why the rifle was chosen to be one of the ten best at SHOT Show according to the NRA’s Shooting Sports USA. The weight reduction comes from the new Ultralite barrel that is mounted on the CNC-machined billet black aluminum chassis, while the Modshotbuttstock is made of a combination of aluminum and carbon-fiber, which absorbs every bit of the little recoil that there is from the .22 LR caliber. Even the adjustable and ergonomic foregrip is made of the super lightweight carbon fiber, keeping the total weight to just 3 pounds, 13 ounces. In addition to the lightweight of this rimfire rifle, it has its feathery trigger pull set to 2.25 pounds before it leaves the factory!  [full article]
