View Full Version : New Volkmann Precision -- Range Report
16th August 2011, 17:07
I just put 200 rounds through my new Volkmann Precision Combat Carry. It was better than I ever could imagine. I was amazed at several things besides the accuracy. The pistol cycled so smoothly. There less perceived recoil / muzzle flip, and had much better control . Ejection patterns were very consistent. I could have caught nearly all the brass in a 5 gallon pail if I had one at the range. The gold bead front with the Heinie rear gave me the best sight picture I have ever had. I am left eye dominant and right handed, but I could more easily acquire this sight with both eyes open as compared to tritium three dot sights.
The trigger is the best I have ever felt. Last, it functioned flawlessly.
Here are some iphone pictures below. Luke is sending me some professional pics that I will post in the pic section .

I didn't see any pics, but I'm very glad that your pistol performed "above and beyond" all your expectations.

I saw Luke just added a picture of it on his website.

Stunning pistol my friend! Very few pistols leave an indelible impression but this one does for me; Big Time.

I agree 100%, and I've said exactly the same thing in the two reviews I did in the E-zine.

Steve, your two e-zine articles are what prompted my interest in Lukes pistols.
I took a leap going from a Kimber Eclipse to the Volkmann. I wasn't sure how much better it could get, or if it was worth the extra cost. It is all a very subjective topic, but for me, it is so worth it.
I find it difficult to put the experience into words. But your articles elucidate my perspective quite well.
I'd do it all over again,,, and if I'm lucky,, I will
Thanks to the Forum, Thanks to Luke,

Yep, Vista Slim's reviews were what made me put in an order; hopefully have it by the end of fall.

Lovely pistol, I think Luke is a 1911-artist. Congrats!

Very nice! Looking forward to the professional images.
Steve, I too enjoy your articles. I read the Volkmann Custom articles multiply times. Keep them coming. Will you be doing one on Volkmann Precision someday?
