    This started off as a standard 22/45 stainless with a 5 ½” bull barrel. Nice little gun. Very accurate. OK trigger.

    What I didn’t like was the way the grip felt, I didn’t like the sights and I really didn’t like the way the damn thing pinched me when I was working the bolt. The trigger needed some work, too.

    So, I installed a Volquartsen trigger, hammer, sear, rear sight and comp with a FO front sight.
    The grip panels and mag base pads are from Dominic Notaro. The titanium bolt racker is from Power Custom.

    And I got this:

    All the mods radically changed the way the gun feels in the hand. It’s much easier to shoot, especially when you’re trying to shoot fast.
