Retail Detail: Sporty Volquartsen Rimfire Rifles on display at Michi-Gun



Out of all the firearms on display at Michi-Gun (and there were plenty), we were drawn to a glass case loaded with these sporty-looking rifles. With their colorful finishes and flashy finish on their barrels, we're told that these guns are a favorite of competition speed shooters — though they can be used for hunting, too. Michi-Gun is a Volquartsen dealer, taking delivery on a regular basis. These highly customized guns have a lead-time of nine to 10 months. They aren't for newbies, though; these high-end rifles go for $1,500 and up.
