Seeknis Precision just up and joined the .224 Valkyrie party, introducing two new rifles chambered in that trendy cartridge.

The first rifle, the VKR18, features an 18-inch match grade barrel machined from 416-5R stainless steel and threaded at ½-28. It also features a free-floating NOXs 15-inch handguard; skeletonized NX15 upper CNC machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum; Magpul ACS-L stock; adjustable gas block; ambidextrous controls and Seekins’ own Nest flash hider.

“The VKR18 complete rifle capitalizes on our lightweight components creating a rifle that is easy to manipulate during sporting applications,” the company says.

Next is the VKR20. Billed as the “ultimate competition and long-range rifle,” this model boasts a 20-inch match grade 5R barrel with a 1:7 twist. In addition, the barrel comes standard with a ATC (Advanced Tactical Compensator) brake. Meanwhile, the rifle has a iRMT-3 upper receiver and SP223 ambi billet lower receiver, both of which are CNC machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum. It also includes a SP3R-V3 M-LOK handguard which is free floated and flat on the bottom. The receiver and the hand guard are Mil-Spec Type III Hardcoat Anodized matte black. Rounding out this rifle is a ProComp 10x stock and Timney Targa trigger.

While we’re jazzed about Seekins’ new .224 Valkyrie offerings, the company does add a caveat that it tested a number of ammo and bullet designs which performed well, but it found the 90gr ammo to be “less than satisfactory.” See the full message below:

Please Note: With the long-awaited release of Seekins Precision chambering of the .224 Valkyrie, we are now offering complete rifles, complete uppers and barrels in this exciting new caliber. After extensive testing and collaboration with designers and ammunition manufacturers, we have found the wide variety of ammunition and bullet designs from the light varmint bullets to the mid-weight match offerings perform exceedingly well. However, we found the accuracy of the 90gr ammo to be less than satisfactory and for this reason, cannot guarantee accuracy with the current production 90gr ammunition. As ammunition manufacturers continue to advance new loads with different bullet designs, there is sure to be future options that will live up to Seekins Precision standards.

The VKR18 is priced at $1,659, while the VKR20 is available for $1,995. See the features and specs for each below.
