I have the Volquartsen Accurizing Kit in my Mark IV Hunter. All I can say is it shoots like a laser.

Volquartsen makes all the difference in the world on the Mark Pistols. I have two with Volquartsen on both my Mark IV's, trigger is as good as my 41 after I adjusted the Trigger poundage in the 41 to as light as it would let me adjust it.

The volquartsen accurizing kit is the best thing I did to my Mark IV. The trigger is now 1 lb 2 oz. I agree, it is better than my model 41 was.

I used the tandemkross victory trigger .

Ditto...My MkIV Hunter is 1# 2 oz, with break-like-glass action...Super Sweet target trigger!

I was Inspired

I just had my Mark 4 out for cleaning. I also have the Volq. accurizing kit on it so I pulled out the wheeler trigger pull device and sure enough it pulled at 1.25 five times in a row. I was surprised because I had thought it was like 2.something. Great gun and great trigger kit.

Yes I think volquartsen kits for Mark iv are lighter than there previous Mark ii and iii I was wondering if because they included trigger discount bar with these kits ?

My two cents: The Volquartson kit turns a good gun into a great one.

Using a 1 1/2 x scope shooting off sandbags on a good bench I can do 1 1/4- 1/2" groups at 25 yards with CCI-SV even with cataracts and essential tremors. That might not sound like much to younger shooters but it's great to me and I can't do it with any other pistol I own.

Hi folks,
First time gun owner here and first post to this forum although I’ve been reading it for a while and decided on the Mark iv target based on the excellent feedback here.

I’m considering an upgrade with the accurizing kit for a smoother/lighter trigger action but I’d prefer to keep the magazine disconnect given I’m new to gun ownership and find some comfort in that extra safety mechanism.

Is that a possibility or does installation necessarily require removing the magazine disconnect? I also see they will do the install for $70. Wondering if anyone has any experience with that service.
Thx

Hello TE and Welcome to the RFC MkIV Forum!

Congrats on your MkIV Target acquisition...Nice Shooter! If desired, Yes you can keep the mag disconnect in place. For a good friend's MkIV 22/45 Lite, I kept his Mag Disconnect in place and dropped in just an adjustable TK trigger and the Volquartsen MkIV Sear + Disconnector (partial kit). He's very happy with his 2# smooth, crisp and minimum travel trigger pull and claims much more success hitting bullseyes (this being his first pistol)!

If you want VQ to perform the kit installation but keep the mag dis. in place, I'm sure they would oblige (although I'd ask for return of extra VQ kit components for future use)!

However, many members here (including little ole me) have found the VQ kit install not difficult, but straight forward. There are several good U-tube videos that help getting through the component part replacement process task much easier (VQ kit has drop-in parts)!!

Theo,

I cant remember , but I thought my mag disconnect was somehow attached the my Ruger hammer. Would he need to run the Ruger hammer in place if the VQ to keep the disconnect? I remember it all coming out in one piece. Perhaps it comes apart and can be reused on the VQ assembly?

Yes, to keep the mag disconnect in place, you have to keep using the MkIV Ruger Hammer!

If the full VQ accurizing kit is purchased, but the mag dis. is to "remain in place", then the VQ hammer (actually, a MkII hammer), hammer bushing and spacer rings would be "extra parts" just laying around, as you would keep those Ruger components installed!

However, I was able to purchase just the VQ sear+disconnector for my friend and my MkIV's...use to be a simple parts kit discontinued by VQ in May, 2018 (but maybe still available HERE)!
