The SIG Custom Works P320MAX has been concepted and designed with Team SIG Captain Max Michel and is optimized for Carry Optics competition.

“The is a highly anticipated SIG Custom Works release because it incorporates the extensive Carry Optics competition experience of Team SIG Captain Max Michel into both its function and design,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The P320MAX is a high-performance pistol built with the exclusive TXG grip module that infuses tungsten into the polymer material providing the weight of steel with the flex of polymer. Additionally, for the first time in a SIG Custom Works build, we have incorporated a factory-installed red dot optic using Max’s competition optic, the ROMEO3MAX, making this pistol a great choice for the competitive shooter, or anyone looking to take their game to the next level.”

The SIG SAUER P320MAX is a 9mm striker-fired pistol, built around the TXG tungsten infused heavy XFULL grip module with a flat skeletonized trigger. The SIG Custom Works P320MAX features a completely redesigned slide with custom wrap-around serrations for ideal side and top manipulation and is fit with a 5” match grade bull barrel, one-piece stainless steel guide rod, and both a 14lb. and 12lb. 1911-style recoil spring, allowing for an easily customized shooting experience. The pistol comes standard with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics 6MOA ROMEO3MAX, and (4) 21-round steel magazines.

The SIG SAUER ROMEO3MAX is an open reflex sight featuring a 30mm wide, round lens design for superior field-of-view, a special red-notch filter for vivid red dot and unrivaled optical clarity, available with a 3 or 6 MOA dot size for rapid target engagement, twelve illumination intensity levels, MOTAC activation, and up to 20,000 hours of runtime.

“From the first time I held the P320 I knew it was a game changer, and it has been an incredible experience to work with the SIG product team to provide input in the development of the P320XFIVE LEGION which led to the creation of the P320MAX,” added Team SIG Captain Max Michel. “The P320MAX provides the perfect performance pistol setup beginning with the TXG grip module which softens the recoil and stabilizes the dot so you can get on target faster. The newly designed upper adds functionality for better pistol manipulation during competition, provides a direct mount for the ROMEO3MAX, and looks great with the wrap around serrations. I can’t wait to begin my 2021 competition season using the P320MAX.”

Volquartsen Firearms Partners With Davidson’s On Exclusive Pistol Release

Friday, January 22nd, 2021

Carroll, IA – Volquartsen Firearms, an industry leader in precision rimfire firearms manufacturing, has partnered with Davidsons, one of the nation’s largest firearm distributors, to release their new Mini Mamba 22 LR pistol.

The Mini Mamba is the lightest, most compact Black Mamba configuration currently offered. It features an overall length under 8″ and weighs only 1 lb 9 oz

“Our relationship with Davidson’s goes back nearly 3 decades so it’s always gratifying to be able to collaborate with them on an exclusive addition to their product line up,” commented Volquartsen President, Scott Volquartsen.

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 Mini Mamba has a 3″ LLV-4 Competition Upper. This upper features a stainless steel barrel (with stainless steel, laser hardened breech) housed in an aluminum shroud. This design provides match grade accuracy in a lightweight package. An integral Picatinny rail on top is standard.

So, whether shooting suppressed (its overall length makes a great suppressor host), plinking on the range, or looking for something a little lighter for competition – the Mini Mamba is designed to perform.

The Mini Mamba features include:
• A ½ x 28 threaded stainless steel 3” barrel with stainless steel laser-hardened breech within a type III hard anodized aluminum shroud

Volquartsen Firearms Expands On Their Pistol Line-Up

Friday, January 22nd, 2021

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
