Summit Straight-Pull Rifle Now Offered in .17 HMR and .22 WMR
Volquartsen Firearms now offers two new versions of its innovative Summit straight-pull toggle bolt rimfire rifle. Along with the original .22 LR Summit and a .17 Mach 2 variant, Volquartsen is now offering a Summit .17 HMR and Summit .22 WMR. We think the .17 HMR version would be one of our top choices for ground squirrels and small varmints inside 250 yards.
These new .17 HMR and .22 WMR offerings will be available in stainless steel and lightweight aluminum configurations, with various barrel and stock options. All configurations will feature a 2.25-pound trigger pull, MOA integral Picatinny rail, and a 9-round magazine capacity. Both 1/2 x 28 threaded barrel and non-threaded barrel options will be available.
“When we started manufacturing the Summit in .22 LR, we knew that caliber was only the beginning of what was possible from the straight-pull toggle bolt design. We applied what we learned in refining the Summit 22 LR and knew it would be ideal for a .22 WMR and .17 HMR version,” commented Volquartsen President Scott Volquartsen.
From the ranch to the range, the Summit rifle is designed to be versatile but, most importantly, reliable. Assembled with Volquartsen’s signature, wire-EDM cut internal components, the Summits are
