This helped a great deal. I was amazed at how rough and dirty even a new mag could be.
The problem seems to have gotten worse after the kit was installed. That is why I asked the question.
I have 4 magazines. All 4 have been cleaned and lubed and seem to be OK.

I installed my kits before firing my Mark IV's so I can't answer that part of your question. Did you use a file or sandpaper in the channel where the magazine follower rides up and down? My mags would stick and be gritty because of that area. I did have one mag that still had issues so I ordered a new spring for it.

Not often, but they have happened. When it occurs, the round is partially loaded. Otherwise the guns runs great. I am absolutely sure I have everything installed correctly.
Ideas??
The VQ kit shouldn't have any bearing on a fail to feed condition. That should be magazine or ammo related so long as everything is re-assembled correctly.

Are you using an aftermarket extractor?

The sharp corner on the bottom of the extractor hook can sometimes stab the brass as it comes up from the mag. Looks like this:



To avoid the "partial feed jam", I round that point off like this:



The VQ kit can't cause this jam, but removing the mag disconnect might be allowing the mag to sit a little bit different. Give it a try!

Hmmm...

The ammo I have been shooting and having the occasionl failure to feed was Winchester M22 and Aguila Super Extra.
Just for poops and giggles I loaded up 2 mags with Mini Mags and guess what, 20 perfect rounds.

The Winchester m22 must be one of the garbage ammo I've used. i shot them on a Ruger 10/22 and it's garbage. I've shot them on my Ruger Mark IV and ended up giving it to the next guy on the range just to rid myself of the the bulk ammo I've got.

M22

Yea, I agree about the M22. I bought a bunch of it when you couldn't hardly find any .22LR. I've had problems in most all of my semi auto guns. The only gun I feel I can use it in fairly reliably , except for the occasional dud, is my lever action Henry rifle. Like I said, except for the occasional dud, the Henry doesn't seem to care.

I must have all thumbs. Attempted the kit install in my MK IV Target and ran into trouble. Twice while cocking the hammer to install the upper, I overcocked it and had to disassemble again with parts a-flyin'. I couldn't get it to release otherwise. The last time, I got everything back together, but the safety is wrong. Can't feel the detent and it moves on it's own. Wonder if it fell off internally. It will cock and fire, but the trigger has to pulled all the way back against the rear of the trigger guard. Seems like a ton on travel. Back at it soon...

Check to see if the detent and spring is still in the end of the safety lever. You may have lost both and this will cause the condition you have. Ruger should replace them if you can't find the detent and spring.

Thanks for the tip: Pulled things apart again. Somehow the catch on the safety bar wasn't in the right spot. No parts lost. Screwed up re-assembly two more times and finally got it together. Next step - range time to see how badly I buggered things up.
