    Well I got this Lite this past Saturday. I've shot it three times for a total of about 1100 rounds, so far it's been flawless. The first outing was just for a function check with around 200 CCI Mini-Mags, 50 Winchester M22s and 50 CCI Blazers as I said no issues. I ordered one of Bams Bushings Sunday night and it showed up Tuesday. :p Monday I ordered the VQ MKIII Accurizing kits along with the VQ firing pin and extractor from Brownell's.

    The Brownell's stuff showed up yesterday and I installed everything into my Lite and ran to the range to shoot it and let me tell you it's an awesome gun I like it a lot more than my 5.5" RP model. The VQ trigger and sear really make for a light trigger.
    My FastfireIII showed up today and I now have it mounted but it's 90 degrees out today so the sight in is going to have to wait.
    I ordered one of Sams bushings on the 12th so I could compare the two but his still isn't here yet. He did confirm he received my cash though.

    Nice!! I've been looking at one of these as well. The way you have your gun setup seems like it would be a blast to shoot.

    Enjoy!

    So far it has been a blast to shoot, That dot is pretty damn fast from the holster.

    Put my YHM Mite on my friend's new 22/45 Lite. Actually functions more reliably than my Tac-sol Pac-Lite.
