Volquartsen MKIII Custom Pistols
Whether you’re looking for a .22 pistol for plinking, competition, or hunting, Ruger MKIIIs are still among the best and most reliable on the market. And Volquartsen Custom is still the leader in the development of accurate, smooth operating, customized versions of the venerable MKIII. All of these conversions are done on the Ruger MKIII however a customer can send in either a Ruger MKII or MKIII for the conversion (deduct $320 if sending in pistol).
All of our Ruger MKIII custom pistols first receive the same treatment:First, we start by tuning the action using our own MKIII accurizing kit, as well as installing a pretravel adjustment screw to the trigger to achieve a crisp, clean 2.25 lb. trigger pull. Our high tech Volthane grips (Right hand only) are standard on all of our Mark III pistols unless otherwise noted. We use only stainless steel “match” digitally gauged blanks on all of our pistol models, and we use the same chamber and bore dimensions on each of our pistols models, as well. The chamber is hand cut using our own unique reamer. The feed ramp is also hand polished to ensure proper functioning. Each pistol comes standard with our TL Rear Adjustable Sight and a .125" wide front dovetail sight unless noted. A Weaver style mount is available as an upgrade option. All pistols have a stainless finish, but a matte black finish is also available.
The V-6 is the perfect balance of performance and appearance. It features a 6" match, digitally-gauged barrel with a full length triangular-shaped underlug that sports a vented rib. The unique barrel configuration gives the V-6 the underlug vent appearance with very little actual barrel weight, which results in a beautifully balanced, one-handed target pistol.

The V-2000 is one of our most unique conversions. It features a 6" match, digitally-gauged barrel with a finned underlug made of a special high-efficiency alloy that absorbs heat as well as any material we have seen. Regardless of the ambient temperature or the amount of continuous rapid fire, the barrel stays cool as the heat is absorbed into the finned underlug and dissipated.

Our V-Magic II features an 8" overall length match digitally-gauged fluted barrel with an extremely effective 32-hole threaded-on compensator. The fluting decreases weight and increases surface area for cooling, but, most important, it increases rigidity which, in turn, improves accuracy. Open sights are not available on the V-Magic II.

The Masters features a 6.5" match, digitally-gauged barrel. The aluminum alloy-finned underlug draws the heat away from the bore to help maintain a relatively constant temperature. The top rib features our .125" wide front blade sight and our custom TL Rear Adjustable Sight. The rib is cut with dovetails to accommodate optics. The compensator is a unique design allowing rapid fire.
The Masters weight and design make it a perfect choice whether off a bench or a two-handed offhand competition.
