I'll be watching the installation video for sure while working on the install.
Watch the videos and understand what they show and you will be fine.

Well, I have installed 2 Volquartsen trigger kits now, one in a Mark IV Hunter and one in a MarkIV Target.

Neither one reduced the trigger pull down to 2.5 lbs. as advertised.

The Hunter is about 2.12 oz. and the Target is 3.10 oz.

I called Voquartsen about the problem and I was told that I'm not the first one that's called about the problem.

I was told that Volquartsen is going to start making their own sear springs.

He took my name and address and told me as soon as they are available, he would ship me two.

I'm on hold until the springs arrive.

I believe the hammer spring is a bit to heavy on the mkiv. I am waiting to see what VQ can do to lighten the trigger more.

I am about to install the Volquartsen Accurizing kit in my Mark IV. I think I'll call Volquartsen about this new sear spring.

Sometimes I suspect the "V" should just stand for vanity.

My gunsmith says he can give me an excellent three and a half pound pull for $75.

That will work for me.

Find out if he is right. If so, you saved about $30 and an hours time. If not, try the "vanity" approach as it always works.

No, I don't work on plumbing, electrical stuff or guns.

This guy does first rate work so I actually save about two hundred bucks and don't have to do anything except shoot.

I have watched that video probably 20 times and after working all evening I still don't have it back together. I have everything installed except the hammer and I just can't get it in. On top of everything, I managed to lose the safety detent and spring. I am beaten. Will hit it again tomorrow. Kind of discouraged right now.

Hang in there, it'll be worth it when done. I bought one of those magnetic trays at HF for $2.59 and it's a life saver.

I feel your frustration. I went through the same thing a couple of weeks ago. I too couldn't get that final step done correctly. I also lost the safety detent and spring more than once. Finally, I asked my wife to push the safety through while I pushed and lined things up with a punch from the other side. Without a vise to hold the frame in place I would probably still be trying. I just didn't want to give up.

The hammer was giving me fits because I was trying to install it in the "cocked" position, in essence, fighting the main spring. Once I realized that I was being stupid (the hammer was not under spring tension when I took it out) , I tried installing the hammer in the uncocked position and got it right in.

You doing the same thing?

He may be. I completed the installation several times in what I thought was the un-cocked position, but the pistol wouldn't function when I reassembled it. I finally successfully installed it under tension, which is why I needed another pair of hands. I suspect that I will purchase a different Mk IV in the future so I will, no doubt, get another opportunity to try successfully install the V kit in the "un-cocked" position. I may not be mechanically inclined, but I am persistent.

Accurizing kit battle

I absolutely cannot find that detent & spring. I will have to call Ruger Monday and order replacements.

I used a telescoping magnetic pickup tool that I already had on hand to find mine. I believe I bought the tool from Amazon for less than $6. I suspect that most auto parts chain stores have something similar if you want to go buy one today.
