I have yet to hear an excellent reason not to put safety first. I'm one of the members that like to tinker with the triggers and put in replacement parts. If Ruger wants to fix a problem, I will be more than happy to send it back, and let them fix it. I'm sure that VQ is on top of this like a big dog, and will TCB. My Mark IV Competition has a very good trigger, and I don't have any plans to change it. I do know there are some of the Mark IV's that have "crusty" triggers, and could use some "fixing". Sorry fellow members, I'm a "Safety First" person. I have grandchildren that sometimes go to the range with me. I want to make sure they have the opportunity to get old, grumpy and opinionated. Later Gator..... AH

EXCEPT, you and the poster immediately above you both forgot, or just left out, the part about Ruger either keeping or returning the old parts, AND replacing them with Ruger parts AND charging you.

There is no reason not to put safety first. None what so ever. That goes without question. With any weapon at any time. What some cannot accept is who is responsible for creating that safety. It falls to the operator of the weapon. All the time. No gun fatality would ever occur if the muzzle was pointed in a safe direction when it was discharged. Regardless if that discharge was intentional or not.

All I know is what Ruger has posted on their website about the recall.

I just checked the website and there is nothing about charging the owner for replacement parts. Zip - NaDa.

Here is what Ruger posted:

"I have added aftermarket accessories to my pistol; will these be returned?

You should remove all aftermarket accessories before returning the grip frame assembly to us. While we will attempt to return accessories to you, we cannot guarantee that is the case. Also, to the extent the installed aftermarket parts are being replaced pursuant to the retrofit (sear and safety), these will not be returned."

" Will the old parts be returned to me?

No. We will keep the old parts. You should remove all aftermarket accessories before returning the grip frame assembly to us. While we will attempt to return accessories to you, we cannot guarantee that is the case. If you have installed any aftermarket trigger components, they will not be returned."


There is nothing about charging you for replacement parts. However, any trigger components will not be returned.

Another point...

Some folks may have had good experiences with Ruger sending back non-OEM parts, but it doesn't sound like you can rely on that, particularly right now. At the risk of injecting a bit more common sense into the discussion, after seeing Mongo get beat up for it, I'll point out that we're talking about a mass recall effort here, big enough that Ruger is taking names and making appointments to send things in rather than just telling everyone to send everything now. Ruger technicians who, in the normal course of business, would be glad to make the extra effort of keeping track of your nice Volquartsen trigger kit simply don't have the time for babysitting at the moment. They're trying to fix a known issue before somebody does something stupid and costs their company a huge pile of money, and they could use a little help with it right now. Quit whining!

There was a pretty thorough discussion (or two), but; some (or one) bad player resulted in such a mess the whole thread has been deleted. Now, there is a call to start all over. Just do what you think is best, if and when you think it appropriate leave it alone. Or not, but; I am not posting on that subject again. I became totally discussed with the last ugly debate.

Seems like this thread has turned into a bunch of useless rants back and forth.
FYI, I too CANNOT get mine to replicate the issue as described. On either my target or lite model. Both have been modified with aftermarket parts however.
