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
