Go with the Black Mamba. It is easier to clean but the biggest advantage is the weight. With the lighter gun your transitions from target to target are much faster. Even with my 6 inch I can see a big difference.

Last week at the range an elderly bullseye shooter asked to try my Mamba and was very impressed with the weight. I gave him a VQ brochure and he told me he was going to order one.

He asked if I'd build it for him but I'm a parts swapper, not a gunsmith and don't want to push myself off as a qualified gunsmith if he has problems. I told him to buy direct from Volquartsen.

For one not in tune with working on their own stuff, that was likely the proper advice too. VQ will stand behind any problem, and there are almost always quirks with rimfires of some nature. I've jacked with the the MKIII Pac-lite I built for my cousin (as well as my own) till I was blue in the face. At last, both run solid. His was a VQ bolt issue, mine ended up as a bad VQ hammer issue. Both run now. But if I was building for someone that didn't live 1/4 mile away and was not family, I sure wouldn't want that burden.

I emailed them with my custom shop inquiry.

I want this clean, gorgeous upper

On this lower, for the luger grip angle

I didnt see a way to order that through their customshop builder. I am very excited.

A lot of the people I compete with use these and the Sigs. Are they Walthers GSP or Pardinis? No but they will hang with them. Also mine shoots CCI SV well enough that I got my first 100 on the timed fire with it. I shoot bullseye at 50’
How often do those require a full take down and cleaning? Ive heard (might be hearsay) that a lot of European target pistols require a lot of deep cleaning to keep running well.
I have roughly 1100 rounds of CCI SV through it and haven’t deep cleaned it yet. I have wiped the feed ramp and wipe the crud off the breach face but that’s it. I do lube it pretty heavily before I shoot it. I think it stays pretty clean though because it is the short barrel version and it doesn’t get a lot of blow back.

I did it gents, I ordered my volquartsen. Now the 2-3 month wait I was qouted. I guess that gives me time to stack mkIII mags and ammo.

my Ruger MkII lower has a Volquartsen LLV-6 upper. It can out shoot my S&W 41. I like both, but this one will shoot anything I put in it. I happens to love Eley Hunting Sub-sonic 38 gr. 22's.

Handlebar, Nice looking LLV-4. Mine shoots great with Blazer and I tried Eley Force today. First time Eley shot better. A little high but the groups were a nice small cluster with no vertical stringing.

/Wirthwein Guns has MkII frames and parts. The easiest way to get a Volquartsen gun is to make one for less than you can buy. That is what I did. My Ruger frame has all Volquartsen inners.
