I put the trigger in mine a few days ago. While it does feel better without the take up and over travel it didn't significantly lower the pull weight, so I will be ordering a sear and maybe a hammer too.
I appreciate all the input! I will have the new pistol in a couple weeks, and am gonna drop the new sear in it to see the difference. Then I may do the hammer, we'll see. Looking forward to pimping out the new 22/45 Lite!
Just installed the full Volquartsen kit in my Mk. lll 22/45 Lite--Mk. ll bushing, trigger/plunger and sear. Wow! Can't wait to get to the range. The light trigger is a real advantage for the 22/45 Lite.
For the Ruger 22/45, the trigger really doesn't effect much for pull weight - only pre and over travel. The polished plunger and reduced power plunger spring improve feel a bit, and reduce pull a bit, but converting the positive sear angle makes the bigger difference for pull weight.
The Sear and Springs make the pull lighter, the triggers only make the trigger pull feel better.
