About the Handgun:
Patterned after original Whitney Wolverine, this replica features a lightweight polymer frame and vented rib. Marked 'Olympic Arms' on the side of the frame.
About the Manufacturer:
Olympic Arms began as Schuetzen Gun Works (SGW) in 1956, manufacturing barrels in Colorado Springs, CO. In 1975 the company moved to Olympia, WA. In 1982, SGW changed its name to Olympic Arms. In 1987 Olympic Arms acquired Safari Arms of Phoenix, AZ. As of 2004 the Safari Arms product name was discontinued, and all 1911 style products are now being featured in the Olympic Arms facility in Olympia, WA.
About the Cartridge:
The Stevens Arms Co. developed the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge from the .22 Long cartridge case developed 16 years earlier, with a 40 grain round nose bullet loaded to a higher velocity than the older 29 grain .22 Long bullet. Modern .22 Long Rifle High Velocity cartridges drive a 40 grain copper-plated bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1255 fps and muzzle energy of 140 ft-lbs from a rifle barrel. This rimfire cartridge has become the most popular sporting and target shooting cartridge in the world.
