My wife bought me a 22/45 for Christmas a few years ago. Its stupid reliable and fun to shoot, but the stock trigger is garbage. Creepy, inconsistent, gritty. Combined with the large post black/black sights, I dont shoot it as well as most of my pistols.

Is there a cheapish solution for it?

I plan on buying a .22lr can in the not too distant future. Should I pull the plug on a complete upper with a threaded barrel or switch to the LITE?

Volquarsten sear and adjustable trigger.


Buy a pair of inverted tweezers to make the install easier.

This.  Tandemkross makes some good stuff as well.  I'm ashamed at how much I have in my 22/45 Lite

Do this.  Less than $50 and you'll get a nice 2.5 - 3 lb trigger.

And if it is a MKIII, get a MarkII hammer bushing and get rid of the mag disconnect.

Edit - more like $75.

Yep.  Nutnfancy did a nice install vid of this and the mag safety disconnect. (Even though some hate him, he's a good source sometimes.). At the end, he has some subsonic rounds he puts through his 22/45 with suppressor in a dude's basement.  Very silent, very cool.

Yeppo.

The sear gets rid of the creep and the overtravel and pre-travel stops limit the range of motion to exclude grit, takeup and overtravel.

I installed the Volquartsen kit in my mk4 last night as tested it out at the range this morning. What a fucking amazing improvement! I got my .22 can dirtier than it has ever been by a long shot.

Upgrade it and LISTEN to people advising you to buy tools to make the install process easier.  Trust me.

One of the mods here (good friend of mine) @JohnWayne_777 had his Victory shit the bed on him.

I only have a VQ sear and mag safety delete bushing in mine.  

I would not want the trigger pull any lighter for a general use pistol.  It's honestly too light as it is.

I have a MkIII 22/45 that started off as a decent shooter....then I dumped every TandemKross parts I could get into it...mag disconnect bushing, Victory trigger, titanium extractor and firing pin, Volquartsen sear, loaded chamber indicator delete,a set of Williams Fire sightsw and a slingshot kit......now it's a very sweet shooter.

Sell it and buy the MKIV 22/45 LITE, I just bought one about 7 hours ago. Only complaint would be the reset is a bit meh. And I wish it held more ammo lol.

Going to suppress it, so it's nice that it's already to go.

I've got a volquartsen kit coming for my MKIV tactical. The trigger has a shit ton of creep and is mushy. I can't find a mag disconnect fix though. I guess everyone is still working on building one.

I put the TK flat trigger and bushing in mine with the VQ sear and disconnector. Sweet 1.5lb pull.

Got the kit installed and it eliminates the mag disconnect. Big improvement.
