Yeah, it was the damndest thing, on the first shot, every single part flew off the gun... even the grip medallions.

I only managed to find the barrel, the mag, and the bolt. The bolt was easy, since it lodged in my right eye socket.

It was easy.

I went to the local gunstore, bought a new MKIII 22/45, stripped everything off of it, put the upper on 3 websites for sale, and put the rest of the parts in a baggie to be reassembled after I finish my modifications.

I really wish someone would sell JUST the frames... they could make a killing.

This one is getting a Tac-Sol Pac-Lite upper, a C-More Railway, trigger work, and I'm modifying the frame so it will take 1911 grips.

+1 I need just a 10/22 receiver. it would save me lots of time looking for a junker.
Seems Ruger could make a ton selling just the frame and receivers.

apparently people that want just frames aren't "responsible"
"Arms makers for responsible citizens"

It's their new ultralight model. I got mine with the new ghost camo finish on the bbl/receiver.

By the way, I picked up the Hogue 1911 govn't wrap-arounds today and I'm just waiting until I have access to a mill.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to install some sort of bushing into the frame or if I want to just epoxy the grips to the frame and then epoxy some grip screw heads into the holes. If I can find a bushing that will work, I'd rather do it that way.

I lost my patience and went at it with a dremel. It got the job done, but it took a lot longer than it would have if I had access to the Bridgeport I love to use.





And here's a quick mock-up:


Now I have to install the 1911 grip screw bushings.

Thanks.

It took me about an hour per side because I went REALLY slow to avoid any "OH SHIT!" incidents.

If I had done it on a Bridgeport like I wanted to, it would have taken me about 30 minutes and looked a lot better.
