Ruger Mark ll possibilities?:

Post by Wingshot on 3/29/2013, 1:24 pm

First topic message reminder :

The prospect exists for me to take possession of a like new MKll w/5"Bull barrel. My question is, what kind of options do I have as far as aftermarket upgrades to make it a good BE pistol? Without going overboard and being able to do most or all of the upgrades myself.

You can cut one side of them off so the extractor can't grab it and take it out when you cock it.

Great suggestion Rob, I forgot about those. I used to use them on my hi standards. the #4 yellow ones even feed great through the magazine.

I have to say, it's a shooter. The previous owner opted to paint the rear sight insert white which I'm not really a fan of but I was still able to get some ragged hole groupings once I got used to the new grip angle. What are my options for mounting a dot on the mkll? As much as I'd like to stay with irons, my vision is just not going to allow it.

Almost any gunsmith can drill and tap the barrel for a scope rail. B-Square makes a really cool looking full length rail for that gun. Make the gunsmith order it for you. That will be the most convenient way to go.
I'm glad it's working out for you!

Thanks Rob, I will see what an online search turns up and see if I can find a qualified smith in my area. I have received a ton of great info from everyone here including a PDF from Allaces on a trigger job. I was particularly impressed with the stock trigger on the new to me MKll and can now see what a better trigger can do for one in the score dept. I'm going to go all in with the Ruger and move my UD onto it with the rail. Any opinions on after market triggers? VQ over Marvel or others?

Stripped, cleaned and reassembled with a little help from the Internet, (no manual) and although a wee bit tricky the first time around its no big deal. I don't see where all the criticism comes from, can't people follow instructions anymore? I was able to remove the white paint that was gobbed into the rear blade insert and low and behold, the insert has the factory "white frame" and it stayed intact. I'm going to have another go around with the irons since the front blade seems crisp and defined now that I cleaned up the rear. Amazing what a .001 of paint on each side of rear sight cut can obscure a sight picture.

I saw an 881 or 884 rapped out w/ a 22/45 wearing, of all things, model 39 S&W grip panels.
As Jerry mentions above re; the ergonomics I am one of those who detest the feel of earlier style Rugers. The 22/45 appears to have helped that situation tremendously.

Thanks Rob, in your opinion, is this something that I could do myself? I have mechanical aptitude and have tinkered with firearms most of my life. Another member sent me notes on a trigger job using the drop in kit that gives details on polishing remaining, existing parts, etc. I'm only asking because I honestly don't know of any pistolsmiths locally and if its something that most people have done by a smith, I'd be looking for a recommendation.

I think that kit would be ok for a handy person with a long term firearm tinkering background. Good luck!

If you look on VQ's website the have a video showing you how to do the install. I put my parts in 1 by 1 as I bought them so I got plent of practice. It's not bad to do. I also had never taken a gun apart that completely before doing so either.

Watching the video might help you decide.
