Although many have opted to practice with .22 LR due to its lower cost, recent ammo shortages almost force it. However, that doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun or highly effective. The recent release of the new Volquartsen ENV 22 LR Pistol checks both boxes with its small, functional 10/22 design.
The Volquartsen ENV 22 LR Pistol
Building out from the ODIN Chassis System, the 6061-T6 aluminum construction keeps the ENV lightweight and durable. Additionally, each side of the chassis contains a single QD sling attachment point for use with single-point slings. Likewise, MLok slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions of the handguard allow for further optics and accessories. Similarly, the receiver has a universal red dot mount for your choice of popular optics on the market today.
A grip adaptor closes the gap from the grip to the trigger housing, reducing transition. As a result, the grip can be exchanged for any non-beavertail AR-15 style grip, providing personalized customization. Housed within the trigger housing is a TG2000 trigger group, CNC-machined from an aluminum billet. Correspondingly, the trigger group allows user adjustments for pretravel and overtravel, so you can dial in your personal preference.
A collapsible SB Tactical arm brace offers a rear point of contact for stability and control. Likewise, a removable Slate Stop hand stop is included for a forward contact point. In addition, the ENV is available in either 6- or 9-inch barrels. Furthermore, each barrel is threaded 1/2 x 28 for the addition of a suppressor or compensator.
“The ENV is perfect for a fun day at the range. This versatile pistol is red dot ready with a receiver that is drilled and tapped for most popular red dots. This allows you to keep the red dot as close to the bore-axis as possible,” commented Volquartsen Firearms President Scott Volquartsen.
The Volquartsen ENV 22 LR Pistol is available now with an MSRP of $1,554.00. For more info, please visit Volquartsen.com.
