Give yourself predictable and reliable performance with the Ruger 22/45 recoil spring assembly.

How Does The Volquartsen Recoil Rod And Spring Kit Improve Performance?

This Ruger Mark 2 recoil spring assembly is an expertly machined package that comes with multiple springs suited for a variety of purposes. The rod itself is a durable metal which adds enough weight to your muzzle to give you a sharper degree of control over muzzle flip. This enhances your accuracy by reducing felt recoil, which also improves precision with tighter groupings. The springs from the Ruger 22/45 recoil spring assembly can be changed quickly and easily. They’re also color-coded to for specific spring weight. This enables you to properly balance your handgun for maximum performance.

Three Spring Rates For Specific Ammo

The heavy-weight, gold spring is designed for high-velocity ammo, which softens the felt recoil and reduces excessive wear on internal parts. The darker-coated spring is a lighter spring when compared to a standard recoil spring. This Ruger Mark 2 recoil spring assembly provides reliable cycling when shooting with standard velocity and most subsonic ammo. Ensure better accuracy and higher precision with Volquartsen’s Ruger 22/45 recoil spring assembly.

  • Volquartsen recoil rod and spring kit for MK2

    Great replacement or upgrade for the Ruger mk2 pistol. This gives you the option of three spring weights for different loads. Well worth your consideration.

  • spring change on a MK3

    Posted by bikesrususa on 18th Mar 2020

    I was looking to reduce muzzle flip on this Ruger MK3 Hunter. I know, it's a 22. I just wondered if a lighter recoil spring would actually make a difference compared to a stock spring. After changing the spring, I did a function test with several different velocities of CCi ammo. Velocities ranging from 1060fps to 1620fps. I was surprised that all ammo functioned properly. The firearm was able to function with standard velocity 22lr. Using the lighter spring and standard vel 22lr made for an extremely light recoil. Follow up shots were more accurate for me. Now the question remains as to whether or not the standard velocity CCI ammo will knock down plates on a plate rack. Yet to be determined. The grouping between CCI MiniMag and standard velocity ammo was the same. It was a wonderful upgrade. Glad I did it.

    I was getting intermitant failures to fire when i relized that the round wasn't always chambering all the way. Cleaning the chamber did resolve problem. The issue was a weak spring form a decade of shooting. This kit has put it back in working order with zero issues.
