Thinking of Modding My Mark II
 
I've been doing a lot of 22 shooting now that I have my own backyard range. I've been shooting my High Standard 22s, but I want to try to keep them nice. I have a MK II Target but it just isn't as slick as my HS guns. So I've been toying with the idea of putting in the Volquartsen kit to improve the trigger. I'm also considering getting a Tactical Solutions Pac-Lite upper with the intention of also getting a suppressor for it later in the year. I don't want to ruin the original barrel by having it threaded.

Has anyone ever modified a Ruger Mark pistol? Any advice or suggestions? Any experience with the Pac-Lite barrels?

I've "prettied" mine up. I know the Mark III comes with a threaded barrel. I bought my Mark II off someone who wanted a surppressor on his Mark so he sold me his II and bought a III. If you don't have the barrel threaded, how are you going to get a suppressor on it?

That's the reason for the Pac-Lite upper. They are threaded.

Ah, I see. What I think you should do is sell me that Mark II and buy yourself a Mark III that already has a threaded barrel. http://www.easyfreesmileys.com/smileys/thinking-023.GIF

Can't do that. I can't stand mag disconnects so that knocks out the 3.

Luckily I just happened to get approved as a dealer for Tactical Solutions today and they just sent me their dealer pricing list. Looks like I'm going to be stocking up on aftermarket parts since all the gun distributors are backordered for several months.

It was worth a try......

IIRC, JonM knows of a way to defeat the magazine safety on the Mark III pistols.

Yes, he does. Maybe I'll get Olympus's Mark II yet. :cool:

I don't blame you. Keep that Mark II, even if you DO buy a Mark III. I love my Mark II.
