I bought a new 22/45 the other day and decided to install the Volq trigger kit and Mk II hammer bushing because (1) the trigger is not as good as I expected and (2) I can't stand the mag disconnect.

Got it all apart and mostly back together, but for the life of me I can't figure out exactly how the hammer and sear (and little sear spring) are supposed to be positioned. I've googled every permutation of ruger mark hammer sear to no avail. Can anyone point me to an image that shows how they need to mate up?

Side note: Props to Ruger for creating the only gun whose assembly and disassembly can literally give me a headache. I had to quit and take painkillers. And I can detail strip and reassemble a 1911 with both eyes tied behind my back....

The best guide I have seen for working on the 22/45.

Thanks, everyone. I finally had time to sit down and follow the instructions on that site. The 22/45 is back together and much nicer with the Volq parts installed.

I think I just had one leg of the sear spring not quite right. :)
