Trigger issue after volquartsen kit

Hi

I installed a new volquartsen kit, hammer as well, and new shims

I'm having some issues after I fire with the trigger

Sometimes does not get ready for next shoot, like I gotta pull it a few times to get it to fire


anyone experienced that?

'Not ready for the next shoot"...Ok gotta be a bit more descriptive. What is not happening? Does it occur only when firing or when you manually operate the action? Exactly what pats did you change?

I have no problems with doing mods to a gun,But I would rather see a competent G-Smith do the installation preventing issues like this,good luck

Not really work that requires a gunsmith by any means. From starting with a complete trigger assembly to reinstalling the last of the four cross pins is a whole 10-15 minute task.

I am experiencing the exact same issue eith mine after a vq hammer and shim kit..... Was told by several to look at how tight it is.... Shims may he too snug on the hammer. Also, one guy told me he had to do a little bit of filing on his hammer because of binding on the return spring plunger that sits in the hammer. I uave yet to take mine apart and find the problem

Also.... Mine ocurred after i fired a shot. The hammer is still in the fired position after a shot, and i was forced to manually operate my action between shots, therefore getting a 5/22 in non semi auto.

Thumbs up

There's one trouble with all the kits, and it is everybody installs to many things to quick and then they can't figure out what is wrong with the pistol. The Mark Series of pistols is very easy to work on if you take your time and change one thing at a time. Always test between changes and go slow. If I can build one up I am sure most anybody else can to.

Here's my MK-III that I shoot steel & pins with. Internals are Vorquartsen as is the rail and comp.

Notice in the Ruger parts list the hammer Part # B-17A is flagged as to be factory fitted.

I've done two Marks with the full VQ kit, including trigger and had the same issue. Easy fix, though.

Just use the pre-travel adjustment screw on the trigger to put a bit MORE travel back into the trigger until the problem disappears. I adjusted my trigger down to where there was practically no travel and had the same issue. When everything is getting settled in, the trigger needs a bit more travel to kick back in and reset, properly. Things smooth out after a couple hundred rounds. Then go back to pre-travel adjustment and adjust to where you want it and should have no problems.

I prefer to leave some pre-travel in the trigger, anyway. Too easy for a new shooter (like my husband) to inadvertently fire the next shot before you're ready when there is no pre-travel left

Some folks say to use the heavier stock Ruger trigger return spring instead of the one in the VQ kit, but I've had no problem with the VQ, now that my Marks have settled in.

Best of luck and let us know how it goes for you.

Also, I've seen my girl friends new Mark III do the same thing, right out of the box, all stock, before we even disassembled it. Went away once the gun was clean and the action cycled with some dry fire sessions.

Are the 10/22 and Mark pistols fitted with the same guts?

The grips are Houge and no you do not have to use a extended mag release button. This is one of the best shooting pistols that I have ever owned.
