Not sure what there is to spec. They only have a few models, whole gun or upper. I have an F17L. I plan on buying an upper in the 16" threaded model because I want to use my suppressor on it.

F17L . Little heavy in the field perfect off a bench. The gun as shipped with a 20" barren. Don't see any options for stocks or triggers.

How would the accuracy compare to a Volquartzen 17 WRM?

My browser isn’t showing any options to choose. The only way to get different options, is to buy a different model of gun. If I choose the F17L which is what I recommend for use from a bench, you will be getting a 20” heavy-ish barrel, a Magpul MOE stock, and their custom tuned trigger, which is crisp, but heavy. Plan on $250 more for a different trigger at some point in the future, either a Hiperfire, or an Elftmann with a special order heavy spring.

My Franklin Armory 17WSM will shoot as good as my VQ in 17WSM.

My favorite 17WSM is the Franklin Armory F17-SPR:

Second favorite is the Franklin Armory F17-L

I could go on...

All mine are Franklin Armory uppers, that I put on my own lowers. I have not modified any of the uppers. Never found a need to.

My next is going to be the 16" because it's threaded. Flash hider off, suppressor on. Didn't think you could get the SPR upper only.
