When it comes to the SUB2k and modifications, some of us are hot-rodders who just can't leave stuff alone. I'm one of those. My carry guns stay stock except for grips or perhaps sights but that's it (for legal reasons should, God forbid, I ever have to actually use it). The SUB2k is a platform that just screams out for mods like the Ruger 22/45 .22 pistol does. It has a large following of people like us who just can't leave them alone and there are a ton of parts for them. The King of these has to be the 10/22 Ruger rifle. I've seen examples of those that might have 1 original part left on it!

Here's my 22/45 I built and the parts I put in/on it:

22/45 MK-III Target Model

Volquartsen:
Exact Edge Extractor,
SureStrike Firing Pin,
Target hammer,
Target sear,
Target trigger w/ over-travel screw, return trigger plunger spring and polished plunger,
V-Comp Compensator,
Titanium Disconnecter.

Mag disconnect removed using Sam Lam's hammer bushing.

Cocking Handle by Brian Alcaraz, [email protected] @ rimfirecentral.com

LCI Cover from bpatza at RFC, Bruce patza, N863 lawn Rd, Seymour WI. 54165.

I Throated her and polished the feed ramp too.

The trigger is MUCH lighter and breaks nice and clean with NO creep and no overtravel. Once I adjusted the take-up as far as I could and still get reliable reset I am left with about 1/64" take-up before you feel resistance then she breaks like glass at maybe a pounds pressure! I doubt I will be making any changes to the setup from this point on.

Ok, I give up, what's the blue piece of chalk for?:headstratch:

To the OP: Bolting on extras will not ruin a gun as it can always be put back original.

'Modifying' one by cutting, grinding, sanding, or throwing away original parts will:eek:.
If you feel the need, buy spare parts and grind away. But keep the original part.
(the exception would of course be the plastic sights on the Sub:p)

Some of the toys we gleefully destroyed as kids are worth more today than a Sub 2000:(.

It's a mag bumper. That set of one-off grips were made for me and required them to seat the mags. Here is what they look like with "normal" (again custom) grips:

Nice project. Came out great.

That is why I've been holding off picking up a vanilla 10/22. By the time I'm done with it will probably wind up being a gun costing me over 1k lol. Seriously it was bad enough with the AR builds. I've tried to be a good boy with my sub2k and not get too crazy with that. My Glock 19 eventually has to get the cerakote treatment and some Trijicon nite sights as well. It never stops does it?

You nailed it, the 10/22 probably has one of the biggest aftermarket offering of parts of all time. I know folks that have literally replaced everything except the original receiver. You nailed that too. Honestly if I were to take on a project of my own that would probably be all that remained original also.
