Hello all,
I'm thinking about upgrading from a Ruger MKIII. I put the Volquartzen trigger upgrade into it and it does pretty well. But I'm wondering what would be a better option. Does anyone have any experience with Volquartzen complete pistols? They have a 1911 type geometry option that I think might be a good idea...thoughts? I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks

What are you trying to improve? Sight picture, trigger, ergonomics?

In my opinion, the Ruger has excellent reliability and accuracy. However, its sights are rather crude. A Volquartsen trigger is usable, but not world class. I don't think you would gain much by going with a Volquartsen pistol vs the Ruger. It'll have basically the same trigger and grip. I don't know about the sights...

Have you looked at european models? The Pardini SP, for example, has a wonderful trigger and the best sights I have experienced. That would be a definite step up.

Trying to improve all of those. Trigger for sure. The Volquartzen is much improved, but not crisp like my 1911. Sights are ok but again, I'd like more like my 1911. I'm using a springfield ro.....

I personaly prefer Hi Standard target pistol's  over a S&W 41 , but either has kept me in the High master class for over 20 years. or try one of the higher priced european models.

If you want something more like your 1911, then try a 1911 with a Marvel or Nelson conversion.  Though many of us use a dedicated lower unit, you can even use it on your current 1911.

I have a Ruger MK2 and MK3.  Assembly/dis-assembly steps are tedious, but once the trigger job was completed on my guns, they work well.  Having said that...

A fellow BE shooter let me shoot his Hammerli, and it is in a different class altogether.  Trigger feel is just different than can be achieved with my Rugers.

If you like a 1911 style grip then you would like the feel of a high standard. This one is a beauty.

Between my Ruger Mk III which is accurized and my Nelson Conversion I prefer the Nelson.  It lives on my RO lower and makes it easier to practice for EIC service pistol matches.  Nothing against the ruger, it's just easier to use the conversion for me as a new BE shooter, same grip, weight, sights, etc. 

Keep in mind that my 2 cents is probably worth 1 cent.  I'm just now getting into the mid 260s so I'm not the best source... Smile

High Standards have some really great crisp triggers for a factory American gun.  Great shooting too.

Lots of good info. I need to try one of those 1911 conversions.
