    Nice, How do I mod my older 22/45 markII?

  2. Ruger has paid a bit of attention to how shooters modify their guns.

    They have a heavy barrel 10-22. They put scope rails on the Mark III.

    By buying a new one. Hard to modify a molded frame.
  4. Actually, I think that's where Ruger got the idea..... folks have been modifying their molded frames to accept 1911 style grips, like this one:

    Depending on which 22/45 you have, I might be willing to work a trade for my MkIII 22/45 Hunter. PM me if you might be interested and yours is a bull barrel pistol.

    Mine is a bull barrel however I just got it back from the 'smith having the barel threaded and front sight moved back to accommodate my suppressor addiction :whistling:
  8. Lots of MKIII 22/45 shooters over on RFC have modified the molded frames on their Rugers to accept 1911 grips.

    I used Ed Brown Stainless-Steel 1911 Grip Screws and Grip Screw Bushings with the Hogue Rubber Finger Groove 1911 Grips.


    Other modifications include:

    Clark Custom Guns Steel Ruger Trigger
    Volquartsen Custom Target Sear
    Blast Shield
    Hand honed Factory Hammer
    HiViz Fiber Optic Front Sight
