Ruger Mark III 22/45 set up with Volquartsen accurizer/trigger package, walnut target grips, TandemKross compensator and charging handle, an OKO 8MOA red dot reflex sight, and some basic mods to the gun itself – removed the magazine safety and modded the bolt release.
It took a while, but I finally got the thing done. The Volquartsen trigger/accurizer package arrived, as well as the walnut target grips and the OKO red dot reflex sight. I spent all day grinding down the permanent grips, then tapping the handle so I could make the new grips removable rather than simply gluing them on.
I’ve got a 2.25# trigger pull on it now, and according to all reports, the accurizer package should make this gun extremely reliable.
I got the scope with an 8MOA red dot: At ten yards, it’s something like painting a bonfire on a target – and that’s about as far as I’ll be shooting in steel challenge anyway.
Now I just have to run 5000 rounds or so through it before I take it up to the Gunblogger Rendezvous. I don’t want to embarrass myself too badly with a nice gun like this.
