The Ruger Mark III is dead. Long Live the Ruger Mark IV!
With the Ruger Mark III formally discontinued, the entire aftermarket will now be looking to the Ruger Mark IV for their new customers (though it’s not like the Mark III is going away anytime soon). That aftermarket will also be looking at the backside of Volquartsen, who has announced the release of the first part (that I know of) for the internal function of the Mark IV: their Accurizing Kit.
In short, the Accurizing Kit is actually a trigger kit, complete with all the machined parts, springs, and detents needed to bring the pretty good Mark IV trigger up to Volquartsen’s fantastic standards.
- Target Hammer
- Hammer Bushing
- Target Sear
- Target Trigger
- Plunger & Spring
The trigger is fully adjustable for both pre and overtravel. Further, it completely removes the (annoying!) magazine disconnect standard on all Mark IV handguns. Volquartsen states the Accurizing Kit brings the trigger to a “crisp, clean 2.5lb trigger pull.” Sounds understand and delightful.
The kit is easily installed by the typical gunsmith, but enterprising home enthusiasts should not have too much difficulty with Volquartsen’s complete install instructions available online.
