Tried a swap today

Log in to see fewer ads
I have a red Mark III 22/45 Lite and a Mark III Standard 4.75” .
I’m wanting to swap uppers on them creating a Mark III with the Lite upper . I have a set of Hogue Thumbrest rubber grips on the Standard and think with the red Lite upper , it would make for a cool FrankenRuger .
Only problem is , when I tried it today I spent two hours trying to get it together and finally gave up , for now , and spent thirty minutes getting them put back together .

Shouldn’t the Lite upper work on the Standard lower ?
I wanted to try this combo before I went to the expense of buying a Volquartsen upper . Kirby

Not likely, but you can remove metal to make the 22/45 barrel fit on the metal frame.


I have done several with a dremel (better go really, really slow and easy and try it several times before continuing to remove metal) very time consuming if you go slow and that's the only way to do it or you could really mess it up.
