I've seen some Volkmann pics posted in differents threads but it would be a great help to future Volkmann Owners and other members of the forum to see our pistols and possibly help them in their decision.

That IonBond dark gray finish is beautiful. Here's my blue Signature - blue Combatant Carry to arrive in 2-3 months.

Here is my new pistol. Blued Signature with custom engraving/ inlays, high grip cut, real elephant ivory grips. The engraving was done by Brian Powley in Ohio (http://www.powleyengraving.com/). I couldn't be happier with the outcome and Brian was very easy to work with, and Luke had a few pics made, one of which I am sharing with the forum. Right side only for now, but the reverse has "Volkmann Custom" also inlayed with platinum. I will have other pictures made in a few weeks and will add them when I have them.

Just pick this Combat Custom last week at a local gun shop :) Used (only 50 rnds) sold originally 08', one of earlier Luke's work (low serial #). Sweeeeeet! In new condition and right on target at the gun range last weekend.

This is my Volkmann Combat Custom in Diamond Black (ion bond finish) with high grip cut, mag well, fixed night sights, extended slide release, extended & checkered mag release, wide tactical thumb safety, (not ambi) naked slide, no tactical rail or FCS, flush crowned barrel and a KKM Precision threaded barrel hand fit to the gun. Ghost Double Diamond grips with silver medallions. I plan to get a Silencerco Osprey suppressor to go on it as soon as possible.
I've designed it as my "go to weapon" it shoots like a house on fire!
Note the extended slide release, mag button checkered and extended, wide tactical safety.
Custom bushing, flush crowned match barrel
Note the wide tactical safety and the tight (but not too tight) slide to frame fit.
Nice mag well, awesome trigger, high grip cut, naked slide, no FCS, Diamond Black ion bond finish.
Nice checkering on front and backstrap, ghost double-diamond grips w/silver medallions. And it came with two great hats!
All the excellent photos in my post were taken by Traxxis.

One picture of mine. Almost the same gun that Luke carries. http://s306.photobucket.com/albums/nn252/celticrey/?action=view¤t=DSC_2134.jpg&newest=1

This is my small contribution. The photos do not do justice to the beauty of these guns (sorry I am not a photographer).
This is the same Signature with different grips (2 pairs of shoes for the lady).
This is my Volkmann collection as of now.
I could not be happier with the looks and functionality of my Volkmanns. These two guns are the pride of my small collection which includes a Nighthawk and a couple of HKs.

Been to long since this one was posted. My favorite without a doubt.
15th August 2010, 16:25
Finally arrived and added to my collection. :D

I sent a CMDR-sized Caspian Arms Damascus Slide and CS Receiver to Volkmann to build one of his "Combatant Carry"s. I went with NP3 finish on the receiver and small parts.

I recently received the first of Luke's new LIGHT WEIGHT COMBATANT CARRY .45 s and I could not be happier. I have injured my shoulder and can't really get out to shoot it but, a friend has volunteered to go to the range for a test session.
The gun was built to my exacting specs and was delivered in a timely manner.
It is finished in ALL BLACK Ionbond with a Novak wide notch and a gold bead front sight.
Now I need to figure out how to post a photo. If anyone can help me, please help. Thanks..............://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa245/oldmoney_photo/volkmann.jpg[/IMG]

Here are some pics of when this gun was fairly new... I have changed the grips and added an ambi-safety since then so I will try and get around to posting some updated pics...

Just picked this up last week. Special ordered the rig for it, and it has been sitting in my closet for some time waiting for the Volkmann to show up. Couldn't be happier with the pistol.

... shoots better than she looks ;)

Couldn't be happier. Sweet shooter.

This used to be a Dan Wesson Pointman Dave Pruitt edition. Luke Volkmann worked his magic and made it a family heirloom. It hurt my wallet but I couldn't be happier :)
