    I installed a Volquartsen sear in my Ruger Mark II a couple of weeks ago. I noticed a difference in the feel immediately. Prior to the conversion I couldn't tell any difference between the trigger on my Mark II or my son's Mark 1. After installing the new sear, the trigger pull was lighter and more crisp. However I wasn't able to get out to the range to see what effect it had on accuracy until yesterday.

    I am very pleased the results. This is a 20 shot group fired at 21 feet range, off hand (no rest) with iron sights. I'm happy with that.

    I highly recommend the Volquartsen sear for a very cost effective upgrade to the Ruger Mark II pistol accuracy. The one I installed was a "bargain-bin" parts for $12. Very worth the money.

    When I mention iron sights that includes my 51 year old lousy eyeballs too.

    Nice shootin'! :)

    Maybe you'll find what I did with my Volquartsen enhanced Mark II, that my old targets were too big and I needed much smaller ones. I had a 5" target and there was this tiny 1/2" hole right in the middle. ;)

    I started using 2" stick on targets that were more realistic.

    I just put the same sear in my MkIII. I also put in the Volq. trigger, but didn't like the feel of it as well as the stock trigger. The sear is really all it needed to smooth things up.

    great report! I have wondered before if they were worth it.

    That's what I heard as well before I ordered the sear. When I saw the $12 price for the bargain bin sear, I decided I would give that a chance first. I sure am glad I did.

    Beautiful shooting.

    Maybe we could get some pics of the gun and a short write up on how to do the install?

    My MK III is going to get the full Volquartsen treatment as soon and I get around an order from Brownells.

    As others have said, the sear makes the biggest difference. Unless you just wanna spend the extra money.

    Volquartsen is a great company to deal with BTW. I had problems with one sear I got from them and they really went out of their way to make it right.
