Custom Ruger Mk2 finished!

Finally finished my Custom Mk2 I've been putting off for over a year.

I love it. Not much Ruger left any more. New Gen1 LLV upper, and the internals are all new (VQ). Just the bolt and the lower frame remain. Grip panels are just their until the replacements arrive.

Hope you guys all like it. Don't see many of them around.





Still dirty from its first range trip.

Pretty sweet. Call it a Venom Mk 2. It's been a while since I sold my Mk 3 but good lord that grip angle seems extreme. Good looker though, nice job. Does it still require a jackhammer to disassemble and clean?

Just when I thought I had seen pretty much everything....... I think it needs an ejector rod.

Very nice. Let us know when it is really finished and has the new grips. Pics would be nice as well as a true range report.

I like it! Just started shooting handguns and have been looking at getting a .22 Ruger to get the basics down and shoot for cheap. Interesting gun!

for looks...I am not a fan. The back has curves and the front is all lines.

It appears you like it though.

Depends what you want to use it for. It looks like a pretty serious target pistol to me. Are you going to compete? If so, you may want to get the adjustable, anatomical style grips or the Volquartsen.

On one of my MK II's with some VQ trigger mods I just put a Hogue, wooden thumbrest grip on it, but I have a Benelli MP95E for more serious work, but the Hogues do the job for what I want. Your LLV is in another league from my MK II.

I had a Mark I and got a set of Ruger walnut grips with thumb rest. They were quite comfortable even with the extreame grip angel of the Mark I.

Yeah I know what your saying. I when I started making this it was the only way to make it. I wish the custom lower from VQ would've been out. Plus the blued doesn't quite match the aluminums finish.
