    I've never seen anything quite like that.

    I think I like it, but I'm not sure why.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    That stuff sounds Greek :tooth: to me, but if it works for you. Is there a Ruger in there someplace :tooth: :tooth:

    How does it all work out on the range? :guns: :guns:

    The bolt and barrel are still Ruger for now :guns:.

    The trigger is now about 2 lbs instead of the stock 6-7. It's also got pre and post travel adjustments so it's short and crisp. The comp and gas pedal are for faster follow up shots, better control. The slingshot mod allows you to pull the bolt back and release it instead of using the release button. Removing the mag safety crap makes the trigger better and allows the mags to fall out instead of pulling them out. The sear lowers the trigger pull a couple pounds.

    It's all in the name of speed

    Not to correct you, but revolvers weren't around when Neds daddy was alive. Spears weren't even invented. Folks were just bashing animals and each other with rocks.

    I have heard of VQ if that's Volquartsen, they have been around for many years. I have fired some Ruger pistols and 10/22s with some of their parts in them.

    Your stash of 22lr is in serious jeopardy. That looks slicker than a greased weasel!
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Yes, they make great stuff. Pricey but great. I'd like to get their bolt but it's like $230.00 and probably is not that big an improvement. I'm already into this gun for over $700.00, much more I could have gotten a whole VQ race gun ready to go.

    Go through as much as 2K a month sometimes. I have a pretty good stash.

    Took it out today, needed to ring it out and zero the red dot. Dot was not even on paper ar first, took about 40 rounds to really get it set perfect but even w/o zero, I shot a few groups that were one hole at 10 yds. Right below the bull and right above are two. The three in the center were a 3 shot semi quick burst. The 3 on the far left were as fast as I could shoot it aiming at the line. I'm pretty happy with it. Had to tweak the trigger travel some as it would not reset every time.

    Great looking gun and shooting.

    But, have no idea what a gaspetal is on a pistol??

    On the side of the gun showing, there is a flat thumbrest attached to the red dot mount. It's also called a gas pedal, guess cause it looks like one? It's pretty comfortable and keeps your grip more consistent, helps with recoil too, not that I'm in a class to notice but good shooters try for every 1000th of a second they can get.

    Wish I hadn't of googled that gas pedal thing.
    You're a sneaky enabler. So far, it's not working.

    One thing though, I ain't buying that the slingshot deal is faster than hitting the slide stop to drop the slide after a nag change. Drop mag, insert mag, as your bringing the gun back up hit the button. Grabbing the slide is more movement. Unless the slide stop really sucks on the Ruger.

    I guess it's personal preference. Finding that little button on the clock can be hard. Some people opt for an extended button. When we did mag changes on the clock, I found it faster to slingshot. You can still use the button with the mod. I've been debating putting a bolt racker on but don't care for the ones I've seen in person. The VQ bolt comes with one as part of the bolt, I like it but $$$

    A similar debate goes on among IDPA and USPSA shooters as to what is quicker, racking the slide or hitting the slide stop.
