22/45 Slingshot Mod

Postby johnnywitt » Tue Apr 07, 2009 11:18 pm

So, to do the slingshot mod on my new MKII 22/45 all I need to do is clean the preservative oil off of the relavent parts and then just take out the detent ball and the associated little spring? Then, make sure the bolt latch will gravity drop. Is this correct? I'm pretty used to slingshoting the bolts/slides on my RF pistols, so I need to do this mod so I can get to enjoying my new pistol.

The metal framed Ruger's have a spring and plunger to force the bolt release downward. The 22/45's do not have this feature and thus were designed with the detent ball to prevent the lever from moving freely on its own. There could be some situations where having the bolt release free ranging may pose a problem but not target shooting.

The bolt stop is not a restricted part. One can usually dress up the edge back to 90 degrees with a file if the latch becomes worn.

I have done some thorough testing with the 22/45 slingshot mod and unless you plan on shooting upside down, the chances of inadvertent latching is extremely small.

I meant to do that when I had mine apart and neglected to do so. I just pull the bolt back and press down on the bolt stop lever before I let go. Works fine, but I'll get around to doing this someday.
