Mark iii 22/45 trigger upgrade

283 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Papalj47
Im a brand new member and have navigated through several posts about the mark iii to mark ii trigger parts to eliminate the mag safety. I am thinking of getting the VQ kit but have some concerns about the lighter hammer. All I want to accomplish is a lighter, smoother trigger and mag safety removal. Any thoughts guys and gals?

This forum is for Mark IIIs only, not 22/45s, but the principles are the same I believe.

With my Mark III Target, I have never used a VQ hammer, but have achieved a very short and smooth approximately 2-3lb trigger pull by using only the VQ adjustable trigger and VQ sear. The results amazed me. From what I have read on this site the hammer makes a pretty negligible difference.

To disconnect the mag safety (which I believe improved my trigger feel a bit too) all that you need is a hammer bushing from Sam Lam - or there are others who make it such as Clark, VQ but I have only used Sam's and recommend it 100% for the small outlay of $10 or so.

You just remove the factory bushing, mag disconnect lever and spring and put in the new Sam Lam bushing and job done. You can easily do it at the same time you replace the trigger and sear.
Thanks for the info. How do I contact Sam lam to purchase the hammer bushing?
For what you want, the VQ sear and a Sam's or Clark's bushing will do the job nicely.
Adding an adjustable trigger would be a nice bit of frosting on the cake. You don't need the kit.

That and the VQ Sear (approx $25 Midway + shipping)and you are good to go

Good luck
