Volquartsen founder, Tom Volquartsen, didn’t set out to be different or to be become the preeminent maker of precision rimfire rifles and pistols. In fact, the story of the company he built began in a nondescript basement in Carroll, Iowa back in 1974.
Not quite fulfilled at his day job Tom spent his evenings restoring, bluing and customizing guns. After a number of years, word of mouth and with support from his wife and four children, he became a full-time gunsmith.
It was his vision for guns that got him an almost immediate following. Volquartsen guns were unique in the market – both in terms of looks and performance. Fueled by opposition and disbelief, he pioneered a new, incredibly precise breed of semi-auto rimfire guns.
Today the company is being run the family’s second generation. Working together to embody Tom’s relentless drive for quality standards, sons Scott and Nic Volquartsen are now leading the way to continue to produce some of the most widely respected and celebrated firearms on the market.
Volquartsen’s mission is straight forward – “Build Firearms Worthy of Those Who Use Them”
Every firearm and accessory is crafted and made using the highest quality materials and production methods, ranging from time-honoured hand tooling techniques to custom in-house CNC and EDM precision-built technology. Every gun made is built by a single craftsman, from start to finish. Not only are the raw materials hand selected but each gun is test fired before it is ready to ship. Each product is a promise and they take that promise seriously.
