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 pistol. The SV model has a 6 1/2? sight radius and is rather large at about 9 1/2? long and 6? tall. The mass of the gun 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. It comes with one magazine to get you started, 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!
