    Paid a visit to a LGS, and saw this on sale. It was calling my name...so it came home with me. :supergrin:

    This is my first 22/45. I have another 22 pistol, GSG 1911-22, to use for 1911 training.

    So the plan for this 22/45 is to make it into a target pistol. Might look like a Hans Solo laser pistol down the road.

    These are well made and the plastic is really tough stuff.

    Most Ruger 22s get modified. Good luck with your modifications.

    Thanks guys. Will most likely run a reddot on it. Triggers will be work over for a light, crisp break. And the mag release will be mod for slingshot release.

    A little bit of file work, some drilling, and extra FO stocks...DYI FO sight. Works perfectly. Will be testing it out at the range. And then will have to do some cosmetic clean up and paint the sight.

    Have you taken it apart yet? Sure had me stumped the first few times but I shoot the heck out of mine. I'm guessing it is at the 5k mark and hasn't given me much trouble. Make sure the magazine is pushed all the way in and you should be good.

    Thanks all.

    Yes, I had it appart a few times already. Did some trigger work to the sear and hammer hook. Cleared up both areas and brought down the hammer hook to a better depth. Installed a pretravel set screw so there's very just enough pretravel to let the disconnector reset. With the new travel, I had to take off the magazine seating tab on the trigger. It was too long and wouldn't let the mag to fully insert.


    Surgery time. Installing 1911 grips for fuller grip panels.

    Finished with grip screws tapped and installed. Added some rubberized Pearce grips. Can't beat $10 grips that gives a nice purchase to the gun. Also threw on a sprare RD I had laying around.
