Our Assessment: Some may say it’s overkill to build a .22LR, 17HM2, .22WMR, or 17HMR to this level. Heck, most production center fire rifles don’t have a solid one-piece bolt handle integral with the bolt body or an integral recoil lug like the V-22 does. If you want extreme reliability and accuracy in a repeater, there is no such thing as overkill. Many great designs are conceived and exist out there in the world but the truly great ones are manufacturable on a large scale, repeatable, and have a high tolerance level. The V-22 is such a design. The ability to hold tolerances in the tenths of thousandths with a consistent repeatability while still producing a volume suitable to meet demand is testament to the inherent design characteristics lead design engineer Mike Bush laid out at the very beginning. This ensures you, the shooter, can count on the same quality in the thousandth rifle as came in the first. This V-22 has an 18″ threaded barrel chambered for .17 Mach 2, is set in a nice composite stock, and is installed with a Timney elite Hunter trigger for the ultimate in performance. This rifle has seen little use and is ready to be installed with a bipod and quality glass. If you want a .17 Mach 2 repeater but will only accept the best, this is the rifle for you.
