    Can anyone tell me if the trigger or accuracy is different between the competition model and the hunter model. I know the barrels, sights, and grips are different but is the competition model any more accurate. By the name I would like it would be but that's just a guess. Anyone that would know I'd like your advise on these matters.

    Same pistol, different name.

    Replace the trigger with one from Power Custom or Volquartzen.

    Thanks Shooter45, I like the slabside because I want to have enscribed " In memory of Dad June 7, 2011" . I buried him with his favorite Ruger hat in the casket, I miss him dearly.

    If you replace the Mark lll hammer bushing with a Mark ll, remove the magazine safety and polish the hammer and sear a little you will have one of the best triggers. It even beats the Mark ll competition. I have the M.ll Comp. and the M.lll Hunter. I always thought I couldn't beat the trigger on my M.ll but after doing the above I did. The M.lll is now "THE BEST"!!!!

    Everything you need to make it into a full blown competition gun with a FANTASTIC trigger and it will eject magazines as it should! My trigger is right at 1 pound and has a minute amount of take-up, no creep, breaks like a glass rod and has no over-travel.

    That looks too good to shoot. Maybe I should buy the Stainless Bull Barrell, save the extra money and have this done since the trigger on the competition isn't anything special.

    I spent less than $10.00 on the hammer bushing from midwayusa and like I said it is a great trigger. The guy's from work that I did this for are extremely happy with theirs.

    Do the trigger 1st! It costs less than the barrel and will offer a greater improvement in performance. Those fancy barrels rarely tighten up groups a whole heck of a lot in comparison.
