VKTR Industries VK-1 Rifle Selected as a Finalist for 2023 Ballistic’s Best Readers’ Choice Awards

VKTR is proud to announce that the VK-1 piston-driven rifle system is a finalist for the 2023 edition of Ballistic Magazine’s “Ballistic’s Best Readers’ Choice Awards”. After winning the Golden Triggr Award for Most Innovative Long Gun presented at TriggrCon 2023, the VK-1 has now been nominated in the following category in the Readers’ Choice Awards: AR-15 (High- End).

Our submission, the VK-1, is a lightweight, low-profile, feature-rich, piston-driven AR-15 for the discerning shooter. It features patented state-of-the-art internal components, offering shooters a flatter, cleaner, more consistent shooting experience than traditional DI or legacy piston-driven ARs in the lowest profile footprint on the market. VK-1 is fully ambidextrous, including a patented billet machined magazine release and bolt catch. Heat-treated billet construction on these components ensures they will perform for a lifetime of service even in the most hostile conditions.

Voting for “Ballistic’s Best Readers’ Choice Awards” is open from November 13th through December 31st, 2023 at Ballistic Magazine.
