Build it Better. We believe that no one needs another standard anything. As second generation Volquartsen’s, we are programmed to never settle, no matter how much we close in on the impossible pursuit of perfection. In short, we work to make dad proud. In spite of the odds, he built a legacy in one lifetime—and we will stop at nothing to build on his vision with every generation to come. Sure, it’s our name on every gun, but everyone here is family working together to craft the finest firearms to satisfy ourselves, not those who are looking. We recognize that “handcrafted” does not always mean “well-crafted,” and that “Made in the USA” doesn’t always equate to quality. It’s why we’re proud that our guns are designed and engineered to the highest standards, in Carroll, IA–using only the best possible materials, technologies and most importantly, God-given talents. We steadfastly pursue our passions, but also recognize that we don’t know everything. We make it a priority to have the humility to listen and adopt new ideas, and to keep pushing forward–to build it better.
