OP,
The MkII bolt cocking ear issue is a simple issue/fix.

Of the 10's of thousands of firearm parts that I have precision TIG welded to date,I have fusion TIG welded 2 MkI & MkII bolt cocking ears back onto bolt bodies.

DIY 'plumbers attempting to polish too aggressively was the outcome of the cocking ears coming off.

MkIII bolt cocking ear surface is reduced & forward tapered to decrease grip surface.

With 8each MkI,MkII in possession,& cases of ammo fired,I've hand no issues.

Modify the extractor nose radius to a flat as not to push a burr into the chamber disrupting extraction & then run cases of standard velocity ammo thru said pistols.

Too much hyper velocity ammo usage will vibrate the mainspring housing pins out slightly making field stripping a task.
(all mine are fusion TIG tac welded as a preventive measured)


Favor Center,Mass.

Well done! Fantastic price!

I shoot the same pistol in bullseye league, with iron sights and no trigger mods other than fine tuning the overtravel adjustment on the factory trigger.

I have Ruger MKI, MKII, MKIII, & MKIV pistols. In the earlier models (MKI-MKIII), I installed one of these kits, not because I can't disassemble/reassemble properly, but because time is important to me!

I would agree on most guns but with the .22's in general they don't have enough extra oomph to cycle the action when they get dirty and .22 ammo is extremely dirty.

The MKIV got the cleaning simplicity nailed.

MKII's are great.

A buddy had one growing up and his dad bent all the pins in the frame when a hammer got involved in reassembly in a fit of frustration.

You can't go wrong with the fat barrel either. I'd like one just like it.

The two-piece bolts were unique to earlier production MK II stainless steel pistols only. Unfortunately, I am unaware of a published date or serial number range. There was never a formal safety recall, though there was a period where these bolts were routinely replaced when pistols were returned to the factory for service.

I have had a twin to your new Ruger for many years and it is a joy to shoot and more accurate than I am.

Congrats! I love mine which I found about three years ago. It is the Taget model and tapered barrel.
VQ sear and hammer parts will have you thinking that you can shoot like a pro Smile

Volquartsen MKII Parts


I hear you...the temptation is definitely there, but I shot it again today, and it's hard to see how you could really make it any better. The action is smooth, the trigger (a wide, serrated target trigger) is extremely light and crisp, and the thing just works. I really think it's at a place where there's not much room for improvement...knowing me, I'd end up spending good money on parts just to make it worse!

I put this in my MKII competition and could hardly believe the huge improvement it made, money well spent!!

I once had the "Government Target Model" and sadly sold it at a time when I needed money. I miss that pistol. It never hiccuped on any ammo and was a tack driver.

Long time Mark II fan here as well. I have that exact one as well as other stainless Mark II's. And yes you made an amazingly good choice.

Fair Warning - adding an SP101 or a GP100 to your .22lr options will lengthen your range time and dramatically increase your fun quotient.



God Bless You and Your House,

Funny you should say that...the SP101 in .22lr was actually what I was hoping to find in the case that day. They've dried up locally, at least for now, but it's defiitely on my short list. I wouldn't turn up my nose at a GP100 .22 if I saw one in the case at the right price...but I think I really want the SP101. I already have both in .357...imo the SP101 is the perfect size for a .22. I also have a 5.5" single-six which is a hoot to shoot as well. I didn't set out to become a Ruger addict...it just kinda happened Big Grin.

I had mine apart again the other day, and was able to do it in just a couple of minutes without the video. It's really not that bad once you have the sequence down. The hammer needs to be in the "cocked" position to insert the bolt (this will quickly become evident as you can't insert the bolt into the gun with the hammer in the way), then pull the trigger and push up on the hammer from below to get it into the "fired" position once the bolt is installed. Slide the mainspring housing pin into place, then tilt the gun muzzle up so that the hammer strut dangles, rock the mainspring housing into place ensuring that the strut is seating in the notch (you can see it up to a certain point, and then tell if it's correct as there will be a bit of backpressure right before it seats fully), and then swing the mainspring housing into position and lock it into place with the lever. It's really nowhere near the nightmare that it's reputed to be.

IMO the worst part of the takedown process is separating and re-installing the press-fit upper on the grip frame. Its not hard to do, it just makes me cringe a little to put that kind of force on a gun.

Why was that?


Disassembly was a breeze. Some days, it went together really easily. Other times, that strut wouldn’t fall in the right spot. The day it took me 2 days to put back together...had to walk away several times. YouTube video helps some. But the new mark 4 is the way to go.
