Our Assessment: Something of an obscure pistol, the Wolf Ultramatic is an engineering marvel. With a locking bolt mechanism, fixed barrel and crisp single action trigger, the Ultramatic makes for a great target shooting pistol. The LV model has a 6” sigh radius, though this one has no iron sights and is installed with a rail, and is rather large at about 10? long and 6? tall. The mass of the gun, muzzle brake, and low reciprocating mass of the bolt assembly also help to enhance accuracy and speed up follow-up shots. This example is in great shape retaining about 97% of its metal finish with a great bore and strong mechanics. If you can find a magazine for it, it should make for a great shooter. It would also serve as a great conversation piece as they are quite rare and certainly unique in design. Please see our photos and good luck!
