In the category of what two things fit perfectly together, Volquartsen and anything .22LR is pretty much a given. So when the latest email blast came from the precision rifle and pistol manufacturer showing a new production run of the Summit Rifle, I couldn’t help but smile. After all, Primary Weapon Systems (PWS) announced the retirement of the straight pull rifles and receivers a couple of years ago, leaving myself and others to scramble for the remaining guns. My project “spark plug” – making a charger style pistol with a Summit receiver – has unfortunately stalled for the moment, due mostly to time constraints.
It’s worth repeating – suppressed rimfire is life. With the Summit rifle, you get the benefit of a manual bolt action rifle, with all the aftermarket support of the Ruger 10/22 platform. I predict the Volquartsen Summit rifles will be a hit. Details can be found below.
The Volquartsen Summit bolt action 22 LR is based on a concept originally developed by Primary Weapons Systems. The Volquartsen Summit represents the combination of their innovative design and 40+ years of our own rimfire experience,
Designed for both competition shooting as well as small game hunting, this unique rifle is a straight-pull bolt action inspired by the 10/22 style platform. The CNC-machined receiver features an integral 20 MOA Picatinny Rail, making it the perfect rifle for any rimfire long range shooting.
The Summit is built using our lightweight carbon fiber barrel. It features a muzzle threaded 1/2 x 28, making it the perfect companion for your favorite suppressor. It doesn’t get much quieter than a 22 LR bolt gun suppressed!
This innovative design is built for everyone from the junior just getting into shooting to the accomplished competitor. It features everything you could ask for.
