volquartsen kit troubles

ok got this Volquartsen Bolt Release Target Hammer Ruger 10/22 SS
also included a trigger spring and hammer bushings not shown in the picture. directions kinda vague.... like it never says anything about the shims. anyways instaled it and the trigger doesn't reset after the shot. tore it back down installed the shims and pollished the hammer spring strut put it all back together still it either doesnt reset untill you wiggle the trigger or it will reset on its on but takes a second or two after the shot. I even tried putting the factory trigger spring back in. I am lost.

Make sure you use the factory trigger return spring. Heck keep all the springs factory.

X2 on the factory springs...when I installed the hammer and springs you have...initially it ran fine for about 500 rounds...then I had the same problem you have...I saw where most people said use the factory springs so I put them in...I should say also that I changed the springs back at the same time I put in a new Power Custom adjustable sear...all is well for now...

One other thing...prior to having the reset problem I did inadvertently get some oil in the trigger group and didn't take the time to take it apart and clean it out...so I did do several things at once...can't say for a fact it was the springs but I am inclined to believe it...

Not sure if this video will help you or not...but it does go into a lot of detail on this subject...

Yes I am sure it did get gunky and I am sure that did contribute some...

Don't get excited over the oil thing...I am merely saying that more than one thing going on at once so I cannot say for a fact that putting the factory hammer/trigger return springs back in was the ticket...

On the other hand... blackhawk73 has a lot of 10/22 experience...plus I have heard plenty of people say the same thing...none of them ever say why...I suppose it is intuitively obvious to some (it is to me know that I have been all through it several times) how the stiffer hammer spring and weaker trigger spring (relative to stock) can introduce cycling and re-setting problems...

So I am saying that I am 90% certain it was the springs...

The 10% room for doubt comes from the oil plus the fact that it worked fine for a considerable number of shots plus the fact that I put the factory springs back in at the same time I cleaned it and installed the adjustable sear...

The oil was an accident...don't dwell on it...I am just saying I am only 90% sure it was the springs...

It is easy to take apart and fiddle with so just do it...lol...

Oil... I use verrry little. Basically I put a drop or two on my finger and rub it on. No excess.

Ok finally got home and tore it back down...not really sure which trigger spring I had in it but it was defiantly the weaker of the two. Also I believe the sear may have not been in exactly the right position. I used that little cheater pin and assembled the trigger and sear and made sure it clicked in and out of position this time. Shoots great now!!! First time I've posted a question on here and the advice was great thanx.

Glad you got it fixed. I used all stock springs when I got the VQ parts and mine works fine (with better trigger pull).
