Hey guys....thought I would share...

MK 3, 22/45.

Volquartsen Trigger internals, Tandemkross flat trigger and a few other fun bits.

Here is a pick and also a 20 round group. 10 at 50 ft and 10 at 75. Off hand and no bench.

Nice pistol. Good shooting. I have been wanting a 22/45 for a while but it seems I keep winding up buying other stuff. I have been thinking it would be good to have one to use as a trainer to teach the kids to shoot as well as something I could plink with inexpensively.

They are really perfect for that!

I enjoy the heck out of mine. A great fun gun to shoot.

I've got a Mk IV Standard that I love to shoot. How do you like the Volsquartson? I've been trying to decide between that or the Apex trigger kit. This month is proving to be expensive for me in the firearm department......

VQ is the gold standard for these guns. I don’t know much about the Apex but I am sure it’s fine.

With the VQ Trigger and the Tandemkross trigger, it breaks cleanly just over a 1 lb

I wish I was a good enough shooter to take advantage of a 1 pound trigger lol.

Lol....

So the VQ Trigger drips it to about 2 1/4 lbs or 2 1/2 lbs. The Tandemkross Victory Trigger then drops it more simply because it’s a flat faced trigger and you benefit from leverage. At the bottom of the trigger it’s very close to 1 lb.

Nice shooting. I have a talo short barrel version with Burris FF3 on it and a 6" with the VQ trigger some upgraded sights. Both are just great .22's. The VQ trigger is a worthwhile upgrade. I did the loaded chamber and mag disconnect mods on both. I got the talo one used for very cheap. I don't think the previous owner knew how to clean it. It was jamming until cleaned and been great since.

The IV certainly seems to be a better platform. Take down is a lot easier, although I can take mine down and assemble fast. There also seems to be more parts available now for the iv than the iii.

Just put in my VQ kit and TK trigger last night. Very nice improvement, but wish the trigger was metal instead of plastic. I wanted a .22 that was lighter than all of my 50oz target guns and this fit the bill. It will also be used for introducing new shooters to the sport.

I was curious on the TK trigger. I like the stock trigger and wondered if there was any benefit besides looks.

And is it metal or plastic?

The trigger is aluminum. For some reason mine feels “plasticky” in the gun.

There are two upsides. The trigger is not only flat but wide. It provides a great surface to make sure you are pressing the trigger straight back and not riding an edge.

Second, it’s a straight trigger so the pull effort is reduced due to leverage.

Been thinking of adding a TK trigger to my mk4 22/45, just a truly fun gun, I usually put 200-300rds a week through it. I have a inexpensive TruGlo red dot on it which makes it easier to be real accurate plus it helps identify any shooting issues I might have, luv it.
