By "bushing" you guys mean hammer bushing, right?

Yes. When they're in stock (not at the moment), the preferred choice seems to be the matched hammer bushing and pin from Clark Custom.

I put a Clark trigger in mine when I first got it, years and years and years ago! Slight but noticeable improvement.

Aftermarket sear spring could be too light ,resulting in multiple discharges.
aftermarket plunger spring could be too light, resulting in fail to reset trigger by not lifting the disconnector.

KB,

I started out last year with what I consider a "Minimum" change to my new MkII 6" SS Standard. I added the Volquartsen SS Trigger, with full PT & OT screw settings. The original pull wasn't too bad at 2# 14 oz and it stayed that way with the new VQ trigger. So, just changed and set the adjustable trigger to 1\32" of pre-travel, Crisp Break, then 1\32" of over travel. The VQ trigger feels great and have been enjoying this arrangement these past few months.

However, my accurized MkIV Hunter (from 5.25# to 1.125# pull) and my accurized MkIV 22\45 Lite (from 5.75# to 1.65# pull) has spoiled me. I just installed in my MkII Standard a Volquartsen Sear & Sear Spring, hoping to get down to 2#. Well, I actually went from the 2# 14oz pull, down to a consistent 1# 6oz pull...reset the PT & OT and still have just 3\32" total travel...No Creep, Crisp, break-like-glass action...Very Nice!

I maintained the Ruger MkII disconnect, hammer and bushing in the setup, as all are working well. I did have to stone the Ruger's safety hook to fully engage the new VQ sear, but now have a "very secured" positive safety lockup activation and a very safe release!!

It's a shooter...able to achieve off a rest using iron sights and CCI Mini Mags, .875" groupings at 25 yds!

Ted

Minimum is a Clark pin & bushing and taking the time to fully adjust the factory overtravel screw and give it a drop or two of blue lok-tite. Then shoot it a bunch to let the hammer and sear work themselves together. This will give you a decently consistent break and and less overtravel makes it a bit easier to shoot. YMMV.
T.S.

I just spoke with Clark's and was told they have a couple of kits left in blue but no stainless and will not make any more.

Best to order by phone at 318/949-9884 while they last...

Just got home and this was waiting for me. Spoke with a nice gentleman on the phone inquired about stainless and was told there were none, I guess he found one. I'm not kind and courteous expecting to get anything out of it, it's just the way I was raised and I often find it's reciprocated. Thanks for the tip on giving those folks a call.
T.S.
