Ruger Mk IV Trigger

Post by Boxturtle on Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:30 pm

Today I installed a Volquartsen trigger kit in my Ruger Mk IV.  NRA precision pistol rules, require that the magazine disconnect be retained.  However, I could not get the Volquartsen parts to work with the Ruger hammer.  With the Volquartsen sear, disconnect (trigger bar), and trigger, the Ruger hammer could not be positioned so that it would cock.  The Volquartsen hammer on the other hand, dropped right in and functioned perfectly.


I'm going to use the Volquartsen parts until I get  caught and the match official disqualifies my gun.  At that time I will switch to my Ruger Mk II to finish the match, and when I get home I will remove the Volquartsen parts.  Then I will polish the Ruger sear and hammer notch and reinstall the factory parts.


Why can't Volquartsen design a hammer that will retain the magazine disconnect so we can use their parts legally in competition?  I've written to them, as this is unsatisfactory.  I'll let you know what they say.

I believe magazine disconnects may be removed under NRA rules?

For EIC Service Pistol the safety must be functional.  For NRA competitions, why would a safety need to be functional on a devoted target pistol?

Magazine safeties are not considered safeties and are not required to remain functional. 3.7
