Get a Ruger 22/45 and add the VQ kit and be happy! Here is mine and what I put in it and the cost for it all. It is a KILLER gun now that I wouldn't trade for the world! NOTE:
Be sure to get the Replaceable Grip Panel model!

I Throated her and polished the feed ramp too.
The trigger is MUCH lighter and breaks nice and clean with NO creep and no over-travel. Once I adjusted the take-up as far as I could and still get reliable reset I am left with about 1/32" 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 other than a special set of grips I have coming!
I have a total of only $258.43 in her not counting the original cost of the gun and Red Dot which was $350 so the total investment is $608.43 and well worth every penny to me!
