Volquartsen Custom Firearms has recently expanded on their popular rimfire Scorpion pistol series with the Scorpion-X models in 4 inch and 6 inch barrel lengths.

Volquartsen Custom Firearms states “The new 4.5″ Scorpion-X and 6” Scorpion-X pistol configurations utilize our new LLV-X 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.

Why did we develop the flat top universal red dot mounting system? Many of us were introduced to pistol shooting using iron sights and having the red dot mounted directly to the top of the upper makes that red dot acquisition like those same iron sights.

In addition, 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.

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.”
