Volquartsen Scorpion .22LR Pistol

    Kirsten Joy Weiss reviews her Volquartsen Scorpion pistol.  It is a striking looking race gun. I would like to try it and see how it compares to my friend’s one of a kind Limcat .22LR pistol. I would put an optic on it as it would make the gun faster for target acquisition. Kirsten shoots a steel plate rack in the video but seems a bit slow at it. I don’t know if she competes for time as opposed to accuracy. Plate racks of that size I have managed 2.01 secs and my friend Tom usually beats me. However I was using a .22LR M&P15-22 and not a pistol. I might be able to match that with my STI Steel Master. Anyways this pistol looks like it would be fun to race with at a Steel Challenge Match. I wonder how well the comp works. Typically in Open Division guns, like the Limcat and STI race guns, the hotter the load the more gas is vented which makes the comps work better. So for this Scorpion pistol would a high velocity round be better to get the comp to work?

    Taking a look at the Volquartsen website, I looked up how much it would cost to build a gun similar to Kirsten’s. It would cost just over $1,300. Check it out yourself. The website for the Scorpion pistol is a bit lacking in images and is mostly text.
