One of the most significant new products in the recently published 2021 catalog of Austrian VOERE Präzisionstechnik GmbH is a dedicated LE iteration of their M2 bolt-action rifle called M2 Police Edition. This is a short action rifle available in .308 Winchester or 6.5mm Creedmoor calibers. Let’s see what features this rifle packs.
The free-floated barrel of the Voere M2 Police Edition rifle is removable, so switching between the two calibers should be a matter of a barrel change. The rifle comes with varmint profile 20″ barrels threaded with the metric M18X1 thread pitch. There is also an optional 26″ match grade stainless steel fluted barrel with M19x1 muzzle threads.
The receiver of the Voere M2 Police Edition rifle is machined of aluminum and has a top 20-MOA Picatinny rail.

It is fed from five or ten round single stack detachable box magazines.
