Volquartsen Update

This update from VQ clearly shows the difference between the old and modified sears. The notch on one side is bigger on the modified sear. I received this email today.

July 27 update on Ruger MK IV Recall

By now, you're likely aware of the Ruger MK IV recall. This is not an ideal situation for you or us. The good news is that our parts have been updated and tested to work with the parts replaced in the recall. There are a few questions that keep coming up that we want to address.

Will our latest kits work with a Ruger MK IV that has not had the recall performed? Yes, we have tested our complete Accurizing Kit for the Ruger MK IV in both styles of frames and have not had any issues. Please note, though, that we do recommend taking advantage of the recall offer from Ruger.

How do I know if I have the updated version of the sear? All of our complete kits and sears shipped after July 1 include the latest modification. The picture below shows the difference, with the modified sear shown on the left. If you still have questions on whether or not you have an updated sear, you can email us a picture.

The recall delayed a few things on our end, but now that it's in the rear view mirror we're looking forward to introducing several new products for the Ruger MK IV.

Next up will be the Competition Bolt for the Ruger MK IV. This bolt has already proven itself to be a game changer in the MKII, MKIII and our Scorpion pistols. It is sure to do the same in the MK IV platform.

Check out our complete line of products designed for the Ruger MK IV.

Mark,

The top sear in the picture is a MK1,2,3 sear. The larger notch makes it a MK4. The post-recall modification is the milling across the top/back to make the top body a little thinner.

This is kind of what I expected, since only the left side (right side in the face-down picture) interacts with the safety AND VQ was offering to mod rather then replace current MK4 sears. The only question was: were they milling only the left side, or milling all the way across? Now we know.

Thanks for posting the update!

Thanks for the clarification. The photo is what VQ used in their update. I can see what you are saying about the thickness of the sear.
