Take a look at it at Tandemkross.com. It's not for everyone but it's a nice upgrade if you want it.
Thanks, I'm perfectly happy with the VQ trigger.

Here are two:




These are big beefy grips, which are perfect for my big arthritic hands. The pistol doesn't get lost in my hand anymore.

Those are truly beautiful grips. I don't think they would work well for my smaller hands. I have some panel grips from Eagle Grips. They are real American walnut and a thumb rest on the left grip.

I have noticed since I put my kit in, it did away with the sling shot mod. So now I have to hit the slide release instead of puling the bolt back and letting it go. Does anyone know a way to fix this?

Retract my previous post I dropped the spring that puts tension on the slide release beside the trigger. So that was my problem. Hope this helps someone else.

Alright, I got my accessorizing kit yesterday. It doesn't work hardly at all. When it does work the trigger is very mushy and I have to pull the trigger all the way back and usually hold it to get the hammer to fall. I've installed and reinstalled and repeated way to many times. Put the stock components back in a couple times and they work flawlessly.

I've noticed that where the trigger bar meets the sear, there is room for that trigger bar to move vertically. There's a sweet spot where it sits where it will actually contact the sear and properly work. To high or to low, it doesn't work. I can't figure out why it won't sit in that sweet spot with the Volquartsen parts. While I was looking stuff over I noticed that the strut on the Volquartsen hammer looks slightly bent. I'm pretty sure its supposed to be straight. Would that maybe be enough to throw off the alignment of stuff to cause my issues?

That can't be right. I'd contact Volquartsen, I'm sure they will make it right for you. I have that kit installed in a blue Target model and it works flawlessly.

The strut should be straight. I can't imagine how it got bent like that. But it won't cause the problem you describe. That sounds like your overtravel screw may be adjusted too far clockwise. Try backing it off about a half turn.

Morning Bobert

Is your hammer bushing installed in the correct direction? The end with larger washer guides the trigger bar.

I did kind of a 1/2 way thing. I installed a Volk MK II sear and a disconnect removal bushing (of Ebay). I retained use of the same, trigger, springs and hammer ( I did polish the hammer a bit.) Total cost was less than $40.
Trigger is down to a nice 2# 10 oz now.
