After browsing many online auctions, local pawn shops and gun stores, and seeing mostly high priced used and abused stuff, and being laughed at at the mention of ordering a new MK III or 22/45, I finally bought one. A local gun store had this new MK III target (5.5" bull barrel) in stock from way back when you could actually order a new one (months before the "panic"). I gave $400 otd for it and thought that was a pretty fair price for the times. I had originally set out looking for a 22/45 mainly because of the grip angle, but I'm not using it as a trainer for a 1911 or anything like that, and the more MKII's/III's I held the more I decided I liked their grip just as well. I just bought it today, havent even got to shoot it yet, but I'm already customizing it in my head. I think my first add-on will be new grips. I'm considering a Hogue rubber grip with the finger grooves and a left-handed thumbrest (yes, I know I shoot wrong-handed). I'm most likely going to disable the LCI, is there any use to nix the mag disconnect safety? And what would I have to do/buy to delete it? Also MK II/III owners, what have you done to yours, why, and was it worth it?
