Volquartsen is famous for making some pretty rad looking guns (at least in my opinion). At SHOT Show 2020 they’ve brought out the new Volquartsen Summit 17 WSM (Winchester Super Magnum) as well as two new Cerakote finishes for the Black Mamba rimfire pistol. The Black Mamba has received a facelift in the way of a new Cerakote finish in black camouflage and my personal favorite Arctic Camo Black.

Unlike the 22 LR and 17 Mach 2 Summit models, the Summit 17 WSM will only be available as a complete rifle and individual components will not be available as of writing.
As much fun as it was to start building the Summit 22 LR, in the back of our minds we knew it was only the beginning of what was possible from this straight-pull toggle bolt system. The toughest decision was not whether or not we would be offering more calibers, but which caliber we would do next.
