Valquartsen Hammer and Extractor



Log in to see fewer ads
I wasn't really having any issues with my new 597 HB yet but I put in a valquartsen hammer and extractor and you guys weren't kidding. What a difference, I didn't realize how heavy the trigger pull was until I put the new hammer in. Definately worth the upgrade.

100% agree, Remington should just bulk buy both the hammer and extractor from VQ and put them in their 597s to begin with.

The hammer is pretty slick. Mine has a bit of creep noticeable because of the light pull though. I keep meaning to stone it a hair. Add a trigger overtravel setscrew if you really want to make the pull feel awesome.

Can't say I've ever had cause to use the extractor though. All five of mine run fine with the much-maligned Remington part. Heck, blowback guns only need the extractor to remove an unfired round anyways.

I also installed a new hammer and extractor in my 597 and was impressed at how it improved the trigger pull. You may want to take it a step further and replace the trigger spring with a MCARBO replacement spring. It improves it even further. I learned of it on this forum and there are posts on here about it. You won't be disappointed.

I picked an extractor up out of necessity and I picked up the hammer just because I couldn't justify the shipping price on just one part. Boy am I glad I got it!

I can't wait to get mine installed! After hearing everyone talk out seems to make the rifle even more enjoyable. If it even makes as much a difference as stoning the stock hammer I'll be happy. Rarely have fte issues unless it's the first few rounds from my 30 round mag.

Load a couple less rounds and/or polish the underside of the bolt.

Already polished the bolt, guide rods, anything that moves and contacts anything with 220, 600, 800, and 1200 grit

THANKS! I'll try loading a few rounds less.....I swear sometimes I get 32 rounds into the thing. I need to actually count out rounds prior to loading the mag.

Just installed mine tonight. Extractor was a PITA- all of my small screwdrivers disappeared. Used one of my mechanic/dental picks. Now I can really blame my 30rounder. Or the knucklehead who loads too many shells in it

WOW. Big difference on the trigger. Need to order the McCarbo kit. I have a little bit of creep- just ever so slight now. Would hitting it with 1000+ grit eliminate that?

just curious how much the VQ extractor out performs the OEM extractor. I am thinking of getting the hammer and mcarbo spring kit for both of mine. just wanting to know if the extractor is worth the money

VQ works great and factory may or may not work at all!! If your factory extractor works near 100% why get the VQ. You will know when you need one.

Another happy customer...the VQ upgrades really do make the 597 a better firearm.

The VQ hammer is definitely required if you mount a scope that works well. My HB has a Bushnell Banner on it and the crisp break really makes this combo work like magic. So pleased with the HB version, it just flat does what I expect a .22 rifle to do! (Without the extra cost to equip-up a 10-22) jb
