First Look: Tactical Solutions Owyhee Takedown .22 LR Bolt-Action Rifle

posted on January 24, 2020

Tactical Solutions (TacSol), the market leader in quality rimfire firearms, upgrades and accessories, is proud to announce the company’s revolutionary new Owyhee (oh-WYE-hee) bolt action takedown rifle.

TacSol has been an innovator in rimfire accessories and upgrade parts for over 17 years. From barrels to suppressors to conversion kits to full-on rimfire firearms, they have led the way for quality, dependability and innovation in the realm of rimfire guns. 

Now TacSol is coming out with a new, uniquely designed takedown bolt action in .22 LR. The new Owyhee rifle is the only .22 bolt-action takedown rifle available on the market today, and it comes loaded with the features you want in a lightweight, easy-to-carry rimfire rifle. The lightweight .920-inch aluminum barrel has a chromoly steel bore and 11-degree target crown. The barrel is fluted for lighter weight and has a standard 1/2-28 pitch for the quick easy addition of a suppressor. The barrel is also drilled and tapped for addition of the scope rail and has a fiber-optic front sight and adjustable rear sight.

“This rifle encompasses everything a takedown rifle should be,” Says Mike Corkish, TacSol Director of Sales. He continues, “It is compact, highly accurate and is also whisper quiet when used with a suppressor.”

Other features of the TacSol Owyhee include an extended magazine release for quick and easy magazine removal, a behind-the-trigger safety and 10-round rotary magazine that is compatible with magazines from other manufacturers. The Owyhee weighs in at a mere 3.9 pounds. The Magpul Backpacker stock is customized by TacSol and collapses into a compact package, making this rifle a great solution for backpacking, hunting, target shooting and plinking.

MSRP on the TacSol is $1,065, and more information is available at

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
