A great day after upgrading with TK and Volquartsen parts.

Today was perhaps the best day yet this year to go shooting. Nice and warm, about 75 when we got to the range at 10 O'clock. Absolutely no wind and a perfect blue sky.

I think I'm finally finished with my Mark IV 22/45 Lite. It has a Volquartsen Trigger kit, a Tandemkross (TK) Victory trigger, TK Halo bolt racker, TK Game Changer Compensator, Stoner grips, Allchine scope mount and a blue C-More site with a 12 minute dot.

Trigger pull is a very clean and crisp 1 pound, 8 oz.

I tried CCI SV, CCI Green Tag and Aguilla Extra Supreme 40 grain bullets. The CCIs proved to be winners with every round going off and ejecting perfectly. The Aguilla was a disappointment, having to rack the slide after every round. I brought a new Voluartsen light rebound spring but it didn't fit right so I had to stay with the stock unit. I'll file down the front of the spring guide and give it another try next time out.


Shooting at Splatterburst 8 inch targets set up at 15 yards off hand ( seated ) I was able to keep all the shots inside of 6 inches shooting as soon as my dot settled on the target. I hope I can keep up this speed Sunday when I shoot our club's Steel Challenge Match. My goal for accuracy is Minute Of Plate, not very tight groups. As long as I hit the target every time (at speed) I'm happy.

My match ammo is CCI Mini Mags. They always work flawlessly in my 10 magazines. Loaded using a McFadden Ultimate Clip Loader. No more sore thumb after loading 300 rounds of ammo.

I just watched a video by Rob Leatham on how to shoot fast and wanted to try his method. Not concentrating on aiming, just holding the pistol steady and pulling the trigger fast. The TK Victory trigger was a great asset for this method. There was no flitching to make the shots miss right or left. I need to practice this method a lot more to get better at it.

Here it is completed. After getting it back from Ruger for the Safety Recall I also had to have them replace the barrel. It was so loose I could pull it back 1/2 inch into the receiver.

Gun groups better now but it needs to be broken in again. Well I guess another 500 rounds of Mini Mags will do that.

Your rig looks awesome. I hope you shoot it well in Steel Challenge.
I have been thinking about geting the TK Gamechanger for my 22/45 Lite. For me Steel Challenge is 60 miles away from where I live. I have not shot Steel Challenge in two years and when I did I shot a MKIII Hunter with a Red Dot sight. I purchased the 22/45 Lite just for Steel Challenge, but the gun does not function good enough for that. It does run perfect with MiniMags. It does jam with Remington Bulk Hollowpoints. That is my practice ammo. Cheap ammo but the second most accurate after CCI. MiniMag HP are more accurate than Solids in the 22/45 and Hunter. The Remi HP's jam into the fed ramp in the 22/45. When I look inside at the position of the magazine in the 22/45 Lite and the MKII Hunter, it is clear the magazine positions the round slightly higher in the Hunter than the 22/45.
The lighter gun is much quicker to move from one plate to the next, at least it is for me, which was why I bought it. If I can get it going right this winter I will try to shoot in in Challenge starting March of 2018. If I can't I wil trade it for a MKIV.
