Rimfire rifle and pistol maker Volquartsen has announced the release of an upper receiver for Ruger’s recently released (and recalled) MKIV rimfire pistol. Appropriately named the Volquartsen MKIV Competition receiver, the setup comes in a handful of lengths as well as sight and muzzle attachment options.
With the success of the pie MKII/MKIII lineup of competition ready Upper receivers and parts, product availability for the MKIV pistols was only a matter of time. Fear not – the Volquartsen MKIV receivers are not affected in any way by the recall. So if you are waiting to buy a new Ruger (or waiting for the return of your repaired pistol), there’s no reason to delay in ordering one of the feature-rich uppers detailed below.
This upper has it all. Not only is it extremely lightweight and well-balanced, but the accuracy is even better. How do we do that? We use a Type III hard anodized machined aluminum receiver to reduce the weight but then fit it with a stainless steel match barrel. Our Competition Upper is unlike other lightweight designs in that even though it is lightweight it still features a stainless steel breech to withstand the rigors of competitive shooting.
- Type III hard anodized aluminum receiver
- Stainless match barrel
- Integral Picatinny rail on both top and bottom of receiver
- MSRP: $375 – $560
There are other competition-ready upgrades for the MK1V as well – from complete bolts to target sears, Volquartsen has you covered.
