    Looking to pick up a Pac Lite upper for one of the Ruger 22/45's very soon, anyone have one?

    I like the one in this photo better!

    Looks like it was professionally done with the front sight fitted and everything!

    Lucky the stupid crooks didn't know all checked baggage gets scanned out of TAS.

        Seems lots of guys in the US like them for suppressor hosts too

          Having shot a few different handguns with suppressors in NZ and the States.
          .22 are really quiet, 45 are probably next then the 9s

          The best of all you dont have to wear hearing protection. CF are still loud but not ear piercing..

            It would be nice to have a shoot every now and then with out the need to wear hearing protection the whole time...

              I only use subs in my lever 22 so I dont have to put plugs in.

            I remember when a mate who was rifle shooter came out to the pistol range, having shot .22 rifles before he didn't think there was any need for hearing protection with a .22 handgun.

            Changed his mind pretty quick

              Yours would be fairly quiet with a 14ish barrel with subs if you complete the build..

              lol... too right, especially with a dozen going off at once.

            Got one of these in the other day and they are crazy light, I wouldn't mind having a shot of one.

              With a 14" barrel it would be getting close to a rifle

              Brownells sell them if you don't want to buy from the place on Qld. I'm bringing one in (with a frame as well) through PBA.
              Good thing I sandbagged the [email protected]#k out of that match or I'd be B Grade in Classic now too................

                I'd have though it might be a little more costly that way as I assume the guys up north import large batches of them.

                A bare frame might be the go though...

            • #11
              Did you get the frame from Brownells as well?

                Yep. Here's what I ordered (or rather, I had PBA order them for me).

                • Pac-lite 6” threaded, black, unfluted (model # 100-011-121W
                • Ruger Mk111 Target frame with grip (model # 930-000-132W
                • Pac-lite compensator (model # 100-011-117W
                • Mag x 5 (model # 780-001-246W
                • Ruger Mk111 Speed Strip kit 3.2 (model # 941-000-006W

                The target frame has the VQ trigger kit already fitted to it. From memory all of this was cheaper than what the store in Oz is selling their Pac-lites (standard frame, no VQ bits, only 2 mags and no speed strip kit) for.

              Thats pretty good if you got it all for less than one of the tac sol handguns sold here.

              I already have a few 22/45's which is what I want to use it on, I may look into the MKIII frame as well though later on.

                How does it work regarding importing the pac-lite barrel?
                So a dealer in nominated in the b709 (NSW) - which is also forwarded to brownells in a combo of docs for the ITAR export permit..

                but dumb question - how do you get the barrel to the dealer - is it a simple as customs release it to the dealer address for registration/transfer to you.. or do they have to have someone physically pick up the item.. or.. :S

              A question if you don't mind.

              How much if the standard 22/45 frame etcmdoes the PAC light or tac sol parts require to complete a setup.
              I'm assuming frame and trigger assembly.
              The tac sol etc they are just muzzle, barrel slide and firing pin assembly?

              So if you buy an old 22/45 that could have a shot barrel or bugger firing pin etc, as Lon as trigger group is fine, it will work with the tac sol / PAC light gear??.

                I don't know if the MKI will work but MKII and MKIII's should be ok.

                You need a complete frame, so basically buy a Ruger 22/45 MKII field strip it and swap the top end's over and you should be good to go.
            Working...
