    I took my Ruger Mark IV to the range yesterday after installing the Volquartsen accurizing kit. I used the Utube video as a guide and it took me about 1:30 to finish installation (I had several interruptions). The kit went in without to much trouble and the trigger feels worlds better. I did butcher the safety lever screw because the screw was so tight that I stripped the allen head socket of the screw. I had to cut a straight slot in the head so I could use an impact driver to loosen and remove the screw. That was really the only problem I had installing the kit and I should be able to get a replacement screw from Ruger. All things considered I think that it was worth the trouble. I love the new trigger pull being at 2.5 lb and my group got a little better. I hope once I get use to the new trigger I will be able to improve my group even more.

    I don't remember seeing any residue on the screw but I didn't examin it real close, I was just happy to get it out.

    Is there an accurizing kit for a Ruger SR1911? If so where can it be obtained?

    Or spending as much with Greg Derr. Though you could then have it the way you want it.

    I haven't felt the need to put in the accurizing kit yet on mine.

    Thanks for the clarification. I could have bought a Springfield but I own stock in Ruger and figured I would rather help Ruger.

    taking a ruger sr1911 to a good smith for just basic accurizing will cost more than the gun. i consider the basics adding/fitting a match barrel & bushing, tightening the slide to the frame, and installing a good trigger with an overtravel stop (of course with a trigger job). if that's what you want and are going to keep the pistol...fine. but you want to sell it a couple of years down the road, no one will even consider paying what you have into it cause it's a ruger.
