The Stainless Barreled Action is where it all begins for
many of Volquartsen's rimfire rifles. This barreled action has the right balance for offhand shooting and is as steady as can be from the bench.
It starts with Volquartsen's CNC-machined stainless steel
receiver. This receiver features an integral Picatinny
rail and is threaded to accept the I-Fluted stainless steel
barrel. The stainless steel receiver helps achieve that
delicate balance that shooters are always looking for.
It features all CNC-machined and wire-EDM components as
Volquartsen feels this is essential in building the best
semi-auto rimfire rifle available. The CNC-machined bolt
includes a titanium round firing pin, tuned extractor
and are black nitride coated for improved performance
The stainless barrel is threaded 1/2 × 28 and fitted with a
Forward Blow Compensator
to give it that added touch - both in terms of looks and
performance. Volquartsen's TG2000 trigger
gives the shooter a crisp, clean 2lb trigger pull. It is
set up to allow for pinpoint accuracy off a bench but
still be a safe, reliable trigger in the field.
It has always been Volquartsen's goal to achieve bolt
action accuracy from a semi-auto and this begins with
the barrel. Volquartsen stainless steel barrels feature match
bore and chamber tolerances. These dimensions are
proprietary to Volquartsen and have evolved from over
25 years of testing. Digital gauging equipment ensures
that each barrel meets Volquartsen's stringent criteria.
The IF-5 is the total package. It is what every shooter
is looking for - lightweight, great balance and most of
all incredible accuracy. The I-Fluting increases surface
area, reduces weight and adds rigidity to the barrel
more than any other fluting design offered by Volquartsen.
This means maximum heat dissipation and unbelievable
accuracy all from a barrel that is 12 oz lighter than a
