Default Best Mods Ruger 22/45

I recently purchased a Ruger 22/45 Lite. really like it however I do not like the cumbersome take down system. I would like to mod that and any other suggestion that any of you might have.
Your time and assistance is greatly appreciated.

ive replaced the sear assembly with a mk2 assembly from volquertson in order to eliminate the magazine safety. this greatly streamlines the take down procedure eliminating all the magazine juggling.

i also removed the functionality of the loaded chamber indicator increasing reliability to ridiculous levels. working indicator mine went about 400ish rounds without lube no cleaning before it started having failures to extract and feed. after disabling the indicator i repeated it and it went about 7500 rounds before the first fail to feed/extract. i didnt count dud rounds which are no fault of the gun.

i also removed the internal gun lock which does nothing to add or detract performance. i just despise gun locks in whatever form they come in.
