The quick and easy installation of our Volquartsen Bedding Gel for the Ruger® MK IV™. This easy to install product eliminates any play between the frame and upper of your Ruger® MK IV™ and ensures you get the most from your pistol.

Tools Needed

  • Needle-nose pliers (optional)


MK IV Frame without Gel

Step 1

Separate the upper and frame of your pistol.

Some frames have a rubber piece from the factory (circled in red) and some just have an empty hole. If your frame has the rubber piece, remove it with the needle nose pliers.

Step 2

Remove the protective film from the bedding gel and place the bedding gel into the frame.

The bedding gel conforms to the barrel so placement does not need to be exact.

Reassemble your pistol and test the fit. Your upper should now be securely mated to the frame.
