Perks and rolls
Stability and range are your key stats on this weapon. Smallbore and Hammer-Forged are great barrel perks for increasing the range. Corkscrew Rifling adds to the range, while adding to the stability and handling as well. High-Caliber Rounds and Ricochet Rounds are the go-to mag perks on the Summoner.
Overflow still reigns as the king perk in the first column. The increased mag size helps with stacking damage perks and getting kills. Perpetual Motion is here as well, and these stat bonuses activate while moving. If you want to take this into PvP, look for Dynamic Sway Reduction or Rangefinder.
The best choices for damage perks are Rampage and Multikill Clip. Both these stack up to 3 times, however Multikill Clip provides more damage at max stacks. Other damage perk options include Harmony, Focused Fury, and Golden Tricorn. These three perks are pretty niche and require you to adjust your playstyle. Wellspring and Elemental Capacitor are the remaining perks in this tree.
