Volquartsen is always coming up with cool new stuff. Which isn’t surprising, as they have decades of experience and innovation. When they come out with something new, you can be certain of a couple of things. One, it will be functional first, without question. They design products with purpose and intent. Next, it will be thoroughly thought-out, and manufactured to high standards. There is no compromise at Volquartsen, it has to be made the best it can be or not at all. Sure, it’s not going to be inexpensive. Which goes back to designing and manufacturing without compromise. They produce reliable, high performance parts. And their latest is no exception.
Here’s the release for their new Raptor Laminated Stock
The Raptor is the latest addition to our line of 10/22® and 10/22® magnum laminated stocks! The Raptor stock features a lower cheekpiece to allow you to get down as low as possible on the rifle. This is especially important for rimfire steel shooters who typically mount their sights as low to the bore axis as possible.
The Raptor stock also features a vertical pistol grip. This grip has the thumb positioned more upright and does not wrap around like it would on a thumbhole or sporter-style stock. There is a pressure point for the barrel in the forend with the remainder free floating.
These stocks are CNC machined and hand fit. The fit, finish and tolerances on these stocks is superior to any other laminated wood stock on the market. This stock was originally designed by Dan Hawkins of Hawk Tech Arms.
The weight of the Raptor stock is approximately 2 lb 6 oz., with a 14″ length of pull, and is available in six color options.
