After installing a Volquartsen kit in my MKIII Competition model the pistol will not load. It will function fine with an empty magazine but when I use a full magazine and pull the bolt back everything locks up. The only way to clear the jam is to press the mag release and pull out the magazine at which time the bolt with go forward. Any suggestions as to the solution would be greatlyappreciated.

PS I'm new to this site so if I forgot anything, just let me know.

Not that great on MK III but sounds like something amiss with the mag release and or the bolt stop!!
Might jump over to RFC to the Ruger MK III thread, there are some guys there to help!

I found the problem. It was the Winchester hollow point bullets jamming on the bottom of the feed ramp which didn't allow the bolt to go forward. Functions fine with Federal ammo.
