If you have some skills and some tools (read that something like a dental pick, some tweezers etc. and the normal tools for deep disassembly, you can do this if you pay close attention to the instructions. Biggest moment will be getting the sear spring in the right place as reassembling. watch the videos (especially the one from Volquartsen) and you will do this. Mine has been in for almost 3000 rounds and really makes this a target grade trigger. good luck!

I have one on order for my 22/45 LITE also and I also have a Tandemkross Victory trigger for my Victory pistol in the same order. Lots of gun surgery in my near future. Hopefully, I'm up to the task.

This is one of the best videos for the VQ trigger/sear install.

I've installed a bunch of Volquartsen sears and hammers but they where in MKII's and standard pistols. I don't think the 22/45 would be that different.
Some people are just more mechanically inclined than others and what is easy for one person may not be easy for another. I've never had a problem and the Volquartsen hammer/sear kit is one of the best improvements you can make to a MKII. It's really a game changer.

There are some general techniques that can help with assembly/disassembly of guns. The use of punches as slave pins, a padded vise to free up your hands, a good light source, small hooks to pull the "leg" of a spring into position, etc.

You shouldn't stress too much about the job, you'll figure it out.

Good Luck

It seems everyone with this piece has the same complaint and makes the change. I don't understand how Ruger can't be more on the ball about this and make the improvement themselves.

Petrol and Powder has some good suggestions relating to tools, etc. As do the others.

I just used Volquartsen's written instructions. Forgot everthing is on u tube.

The Ruger sear is fine for a factory part and will give a lifetime of service. I'm sure Ruger could do better but not at the same cost. The Volquartsen sear and hammer are far superior but at a price. It comes down to the price point you need to hit in order to remain competitive.

I will say that the MKII responds VERY well to the addition of a Volquartsen sear & hammer. I prefer the older steel Clark trigger, although it isn't a drop in part. You don't need all of the other bells & whistles that Volquartsen sells. The Hammer, Sear and Clark Trigger will put you in a whole new league. Polishing the trigger bar and a few other key components yields a very good trigger pull. Add the right standard velocity ammo and those guns will shoot. I've given a few owners of S&W model 41's an education.

Since the sear is over 90% of the trigger pull why not just replace the sear alone? Can that be done in the MKIV?

I dunno, I would pay an extra $100 for a gun that didn't require me to order in parts and do the work, but I get your point.

It does not REQUIRE you to replace the sear. You may replace the sear if you wish.
And the sear and hammer work together when it comes to trigger pull, so it is better to do them as a pair.
