Lightweight Mountain Hunter

Build Now


When hunting at altitude, every pound matters. The Summit is our lightest precision hunting platform, designed to meet the challenges of hunting big game in the high country. It’s the blissful union of reduced weight, coupled with the ultra durability and long-range accuracy that hunting in extreme environments demands. This is the pack-friendly rifle designed for the veteran hunter who likes to go long and hit hard. The Summit comes standard with a BDL style magazine (hinged floorplate) and Summit stock and is available in a variety of calibers and barrel lengths.

At PROOF Research we didn’t invent carbon fiber-wrapped barrels. We just perfected them.
