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 Accurizing Kit for a 2.25 lb trigger pull

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

“2020 was a big year for Savage,” Al Kasper, President and CEO of Savage Arms said. “2021 is going to be even bigger. We have our sights firmly set on innovation and really rounding out our catalog. These three models do just that. Each represents something our customers have been asking for. 6mm ARC is a round with a tremendous potential. 28 Nosler is pushing the limits for ethical hunting—and RENEGAUGE keeps on evolving.”

Introducing the FN 509 LS Edge

Monday, January 11th, 2021

(McLean, VA – January 11, 2021) Introducing the FN 509 LS Edge™, the ultimate tactical pistol designed by FN to give users every advantage in the most demanding environments. From the front lines to the range, this factory-tuned 9mm Long Slide delivers cutting edge performance. When split seconds make the difference, the FN 509 LS Edge provides the advantage of a fully customized firearm, right out of the box.

“FN’s commitment to developing performance-driven products has reached a new level with the FN 509 LS Edge,” said Mark Cherpes, CEO for FN America, LLC. “The foundation of unmatched FN craftsmanship and battle-proven reliability combined with expert counsel from professional users, allowed us to develop the most advanced FN 509 pistol to date.”

Building on the proven FN 509 platform, FN teamed with tier one operators and world champion pistol shooters, to strategically enhance and purposely combine critical components of the new FN 509 LS Edge. The end result is a handgun that delivers superior versatility, accuracy, control and speed.

Versatility

The FN Low-Profile Optics-Mounting System™, combined with the green fiber optic front sight, allows users to run iron sights and a co-witnessed miniature red dot optic. Quickly mounting a favorite MRD is enabled with four included optic mounting plates. The midsized frame gives users the feel of a full-sized pistol that can still be comfortably concealed. An ambidextrous slide stop and two interchangeable backstraps allow users to further customize the FN 509 LS Edge, matching any hand size.

Accuracy

The five-inch hammer-forged target-crowned barrel delivers unmatched accuracy. With the 6.7-inch Long Slide bearing a 0.040” fiber optic front sight, the extended sight picture improves target acquisition and tracking. Additionally, the green fiber optic front sight co-witnesses with a micro red dot, users instinctively acquire a sight picture after their draw. The duty-rated, flat-faced trigger breaks cleanly at 90 degrees and features a reduced pull weight of around four to five pounds.

Control

Achieving the ideal balance, the 509 LS Edge’s lightening-cut Long Slide compliments the graphite anodized base plates and flared aluminum magazine well, resulting in a flat shooting pistol that racks faster, recovers instantly and tracks perfectly. Maximum control is gained with the frame’s full-height stippling, ensuring a full-contact 360-degree grip, locking into the hands under fire to reduce muzzle flip and control recoil.

Speed

The short take up and positive reset of the flat-faced trigger allows for speedy follow-up shots, while the green fiber optic front sight enables faster target acquisitions and transitions between shots. The flared, graphite anodized aluminum magazine well and weighted base plates of the 17-round magazines make for lightning-fast reloads, getting you back on target faster than ever.

The FN 509 LS Edge, part of a performance-driven series of firearms bearing the FN name, is shipping to an FN dealer near you. Gain an edge and learn more about the FN 509 LS Edge by visiting www.fnamerica.com/edgeseries.
