Think you're going to like that combo- same as I did with my Mk IV Target. Really starting to like flat faced triggers, and the TK is a good one. Stock trigger pull on mine wasn't horrible, but not good either- ~4.5 lbs with a slight hitch in it's giddyup right before breaking. Lots of pre- and over-travel. The VQ kit took it to 2 lbs even, & very crisp. TK trigger adjustments got it to almost no over-travel & reduced the pre-travel (had to leave a little pre-travel or it wouldn't reset).

For this 2nd frame (currently just in use on my leftover standard upper), I decided to see what I could do going the cheap route. Joe Bob's still sells just the MKIV VQ sear and disconnector for about $60 shipped. I already had an extra hammer bushing that TacSol sent back when they were checking out my MKIII. Kept the factory trigger and hammer, and put the bushing/sear/disconnector into it tonight. (cheating kind of, because I also had a 22/45 spacer and a VQ trigger plunger spring laying around as well) 2lb pull dead even unfired (meaning no break in). Works for now, and I can always decide on a different trigger down the line with adjustments if I want to.

Joe Bob's outfitters. Just some place I found searching for parts last year. I did a search for MKIV sear not long ago and bookmarked it. Remembered it when I ended up impulse buying the frame. Joe Bob dun saved you $3.68! Seemed like I did buy some random part from them at some point last year, but don't remember what.

Well, I installed the Volquartsen accurizing kit with the TandemKross trigger in my Mark IV Hunter.

Before heading to the range, my buddy measured the trigger pull with his electronic measurement gauge. The average for five pulls was 1lb 3 oz! No creep, no overtravel. It does need a little pre travel to reset, but it is very minimal.

To answer my question originally posted in the thread, yes it is worth it to install this kit. My trigger was pretty good from the factory at 2 lbs 15 oz. I was hoping to get it to 2.25 and get rid of the creep. I never imagined I would get to 1.3 lbs with no creep. This kit, along with the Tandemkross Victory trigger is the best $150 I could have spent on this gun. It will hold it's own with my SW model 41 (that I sold) all day. In fact, my groups are better with this than the 41.

I couldn't be happier.

Your trigger was really good from the start. Glad you like the trigger pull better now. Now if Ruger could just make the little bumper part (keeps the lower and upper tight and no wiggle)out of something better so it lasts lots longer that would be great too.

I must have got lucky on that part, because I'm closing in on 10,000rds and that part hasn't been an issue so far. Granted most all of it has been with a VQ upper on there, but still no wiggle when I swap out the Standard receiver either. When it does, I'll be doing that Lee Wirthwein trick of cutting a little piece of chainsaw fuel line and putting in place of the original rubber bumper.

They're inexpensive and easy to replace.

Do they last a long time? My guess is the adhesive backing would release before the piece wears out.

This looks like a great alternative. I was thinking of slicing a disc shape off an accu-wedge and gluing in place, but this looks nice and easy.

I did the Volquartson kit on my target and am completely satisfied with it. Check out Rimfire Sports for prices before buying Volquartson products anywhere else plus they have free shipping.

I suppose the glue might dissolve over time if you hit the area with a lot of solvent. But, with the price being so low, it really doesn't matter to me. I keep spares in the case with the pistol.

I'm still using the bumper I installed last year - and I've cleaned the gun several times.

I just love it when shooters come up with a viable/inexpensive solution like this on their own!

They are essential.

VQ Triggers, That is what this thread is all about after all.
