Any local shops that have Ruger Mark III 22/45 Smiths?







I'm interested in getting a Mark III 22/45 and I'd like someone to put in the Volquartsen aqurizing kit, bushing swap to eliminate the magazine disconnect and any other tricks that need to be done...





Like maybe the





Target Sear





Titanium Disconnector





Bolt etc...



Not really sure, open to suggestion on addional mods.







I wanna do it up kinda nice like... :)





I just shoot'em, I don't trust myself with the Innards on these and I would like someone that know what they are doing to hook it up and test it to make sure its not going to be a Jamo'matic...





I shot one a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it... In talking to the owner it had a lightened trigger and a few other things done too it and I'd like to do something similar.

I did the VQ sear, LCI delete, and mag safety mods at my kitchen table. About 30 minutes all together. Use the manufacturers' instructions and YouTube.

This. You should never involve a gunsmith until you have completely screwed it up. Then bring it to the smith with at least one missing part and bunch of metal ground off of something important.

I hate this but its so true.

I did all the work on my 2245 perfectly. Lastly I was going to "simply" replace the front site. The rear drifted out great so I'm thinking I got this shit down. I go to remove the front site screw, using the proper screwdriver, and stripped the head out. No problem, I thought' I got a bad ass drill press and all the tools to fix it. On the first pilot hold things went terribly bad and just kept getting worse the more I tried to remove that damn screw.

Much drinking, swearing and gnashing of teeth followed. Then I got to do the gun shop walk of shame with my tricked out nail driver with a front sight section that looked like hammered dog shit.

Moral for me since: lets at least let the gunsmith look at it first.

They are very easy to work on. I would be glad to help you do it yourself. It gives you a better idea how they work. I can also hook you up with one of these for it:

I don't make them, but designed them & sell. I got a guy who water jets them out of aircraft aluminum.
