Rimfire .22 long rifle “Real AR”




Several manufacturers built .22 caliber rifles that resemble AR-15s, but they are one trick ponies as they can only use 22LR ammo. Here at VT, we don’t like one trick ponies so when we decided to build a .22 carbine, we built it on a real AR-15 lower. This means when you want to shoot something more substantial than a 22LR, you don’t need to buy a whole new gun. You only need to buy an AR-15 upper in the caliber you want, push out the takedown pins, remove the 22 upper and replace it with the more powerful upper. You now have a .223/556, .300 blackout, or any other caliber available for the AR-15 platform. You can shoot low cost 22 for target shooting or plinking and changeover to a defensive or hunting caliber in less than a minute.  This rifle comes with a standard AR pistol grip and adjustable stock.

No optic, foregrip, flashlight, or laser is included at this bargain price, but they are available for a slight upcharge.  It comes with two 28 round 22 magazines that fit into a standard magwell so no special adapter is needed.  We can custom build another upper in any caliber when you want to add one – Prices vary depending on desired configuration. Call Mike for prices and specs.

The 6.5mm Grendel AR Long Range Rifle

(123 grains still supersonic at 1000 meters with high accuracy)
fff_659 fff_663 fff_658 fff_662 fff_661 fff_660

Loadout:  This makes it simple, move up from 55 grains bullets to 123 and larger, double the effective range and take this away, laid out perfectly for any tactical assignment imaginable.  With inexpensive and very available Grendel ammunition, this is now a go-to alternative.

20 inch chrome moly barrel with Melonite finish

15 inch slimline rail with removable sections

UTG tall Harris style bipod

Pentax 3-9X40 Gameseeker scope

25 round stainless steel magazine

While the AR-type rifle in traditional calibers is assumed to be a 400 yards or less cartridge, some enterprising folks have turned a variant into a longer range performer. Bill Alexander and Janne Pohjoispää developed this round as a way to make a standard AR rifle reach out to 800 (and more) yards. It’s designed to fit in a standard AR magazine size, so it gains its extra oomph by using a larger diameter case to launch a long and thin bullet.

Most 6.5 Grendel bullets weigh between 90 and 140 grains, with a common one landing at 123 grains and moving at over 2,500 feet per second. The low-drag projectiles maintain supersonic velocity past 1,000 yards. It also carries over 1,000 foot-pounds of kinetic energy to nearly 450 yards.

Ammo is fairly easy to find and can be had for a reasonable price. I was able to find it at an online retailer for $6.99/ box of 20. (35¢/round which is only 4-5¢ more than 223)



Fluted 20 inch .223 AR Premium Rifle

fff_680 fff_681

Editor’s note: Our first 9mm and .458 SOCOM offerings…

We are featuring two unique weapons, one a 9mm tactical carbine.  No matter what you already have, you should have one of these and, if you are going to have a 9mm carbine, this one, designed by VT, is the best one out there.

Our second unique offering is a 7.5 inch barreled .458 SOCOM “pistol” with a 13 round capacity.  This is the smallest rapid firing big game weapon in the world.  This is the .44 magnum as a comparison:


Now look at the .458 SOCOM:


With our design, fully buffered, the .458 will have less than one third the recoil of the .44 magnum with almost twice the stopping power and much more capacity and accuracy.

Most weapons here are custom designed and built by us. Others are “standards” or interest items. Included is the most extensive catalog of modern assault type weapons (almost exclusively AR based) in the world. Among these are things the US military only dreams of having.

458 Socom with 350 grain bullet 1800 fps, .223 with 55 grain bullet 3200 fps, .300 AAC Blackout with 150 grain bullet 1900 fps,  .308 Winchester with 150 grain bullet 280 fps
.458 SOCOM 350 grain and .223 55 grain


Custom built weapons are usually range tested and, where needed, custom tuned and lubricated. There is always a break-in period for all semi-automatic weapons.

.458 SOCOM “Hand Cannon”

fff_617 fff_616 fff_615 fff_614

The .458 SOCOM round is a large game round capable of taking down a moose. It also makes an excellent home defense round if your home gets invaded by large game. (last night I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I’ll never know. – Groucho Marx)
This is the round that the Navy and the Coast Guard use to shoot holes in pirate ships and drug runners’ boats. It would be the round to use if you want to shoot through the engine block of a ‘56 Buick. It can send a 350 grain projectile down range at 1800 feet per second.
Who would be crazy enough to build a pistol to shoot this mighty round? – We would. Are you man or woman enough to handle this beast? Only you can answer this question. If you ever want to be able to hear anything again, ear protection is a must when firing this gun. This uses a standard 223 magazine in a single stack configuration. a 30 rounder holds 13 of the SOCOM rounds which is way more than you will need.

9mm AR Based Survival Carbine 32 Round

fff_607 fff_608 fff_609 fff_610 fff_606

AR-15 Carbine in 9mm
This rifle shoots the very popular and affordable 9mm round that is used in millions of handguns around the world. With ammo prices on the 9mm coming down and the .22 going up, they now cost about the same to shoot and the 9mm is a much more capable round. With 16 inches of barrel the bullet reaches much higher velocities and therefore has more hitting power than if fired from a handgun. this is an excellent shooter with no noticeable recoil.

“Imagine staring down a barrel big enough for a rat to crawl out”

By “all business,” we really mean it. This is absolutely perfect ergonomics and top components in a unique custom design. Can anyone say this isn’t a “bad boy?” Moving us back in time to when the grease gun and MAC 10/Ingram were hottest things around. We built on this tradition, cutting the weight in half, doubling the range and accuracy and, oddly enough, not violating any laws either.
