Carroll, IA ? Volquartsen Firearms, an industry leader in precision rimfire firearms manufacturing, has expanded on their line of Black Mamba 22 LR pistols with the new Mamba-X.
With the introduction of the Black Mamba in 2019, followed by the Black Mamba-TF in 2020, the Mamba-X is the latest addition to this line of highly sought after pistols.
Competition ready in a push-button takedown configuration. Nothing strikes with the speed and agility of the Black Mamba.
The Black Mamba combines features from the Volquartsen Scorpion 22 LR Target Pistol along with the push-button takedown functionality of the Ruger® MK IV™ frame.
The new Mamba-X and Mamba-TFX pistol configurations utilize Volquartsen’s new LLV-4X upper which has multiple hole mounting locations allowing for a variety of popular red dots to be mounted directly to the top of the upper.
“Competitive shooters are always searching for that “little something” that will make them a fraction of a second faster. Matches are sometimes won or lost by a fraction of a second. In talking to world champion level shooters, they will tell you that many times the split to that first target sets the tone for the rest of the string,” commented Volquartsen Firearms President, Scott Volquartsen. “In fact, they spend what seems to the casual observer a disproportionate amount of time working on that transition from low ready to first plate. Keeping the red dot mounted as low to the bore-axis as possible makes for faster sight acquisition. The easiest and cleanest way to do this is to mount the red dot directly to the top of the upper.”
The Mamba-X features include:
• A ½ x 28 threaded stainless steel 4.5” barrel with stainless steel laser-hardened breech within a type III hard anodized aluminum shroud
• Volquartsen Accurizing Kit for a 2.25 lb trigger pull
• DLC coated Volquartsen Competition Bolt
• Volquartsen Single-Port Compensator
• Utilizes the Volquartsen LLV-4X Upper
• Available with a Ruger® MK IV™ target frame or Ruger ® MK IV™ 22/45™ frame for push-button takedown capability
The LLV-4X Upper will also be available as a stand-alone product and is compatible with both the Volquartsen Competition Bolt as well as the Ruger® MK IV™ factory bolt.
A limited number of LLV-4X uppers are currently available with complete pistols available in the next 6 months.
Mamba-X MSRP: $1342.00
Mamba-TFX MSRP: $1432.00
LLV-4X Upper MSRP: $489.00
