Default Mark iii 22 vs 22/45

What is the difference? I've heard nothing but good about both, but not familiar with the 22/45. Is it convertible to a 45?

No, it has the same controls as the 1911 and the grips are interchangeable. The 22/45 is what I have with the bull barrel. One heck of an accurate gun. Bit of a pain to break down and clean.

From what i've read they are very similar except for the grip/ grip angle. Aesthetically, I like the looks of the 22/45. Ergonomics go to the 22/45 as well. IMO.

Check out the 22/45 lite. My buddy just bought one and I'm jealous. The lite looks sweet and is threaded for a silencer. Necessary? no. Cool?absolutely.

the 22/45 fixes a lot of the issues of the standard models.

on mine i fixed all but one issue of the remainder.

i removed the magazine safety which allowed the mags to drop free. and i removed the loaded chamber indicator which let it run for several thousands of rounds without cleaning or lube. with the indicator functional crud would collect under it until it would fail to feed in less that 500 rounds.


the one issue i havent fixed (cant yet) is the bolt release doesnt release automatically by pulling the bolt rearward.

the issue i hate about the standard is heel mag release and grip angle.

Thanks for the info. Heard that a lot of police used for practice draw and fire for that reason.

Found 3 at the local pawn. One tapered barrel, one bull and the light with threaded. Cool, but expensive for the suppressor. Pricing them for my 9 and 308. They are proud of them!!!

Should be able to pick up a used one in good condition for around $250-275. Even new my LGS keeps them right around $350. The Lite version will be a bit more.

from what ive seen on the net its all half-assed. new parts need to be fabricated and i havent got around to experimenting yet. it needs spring pressure to depress the bolt stop when the bolt is drawn rearward
