22/45 Mark III mag disconnect removal

I just removed the magazine disconnect on my Mark III 22/45. What a difference! Reassembly is now the same as a Mark II, the trigger is so much better and the magazines now drop free. I replaced the disconnect with a Tandemkross hammer bushing, which I ordered from Amazon.

It arrived early and the quality is first rate. It is truly a drop in piece, no deburring or fitting required. It came with a link to video instructions on Youtube which made the install a breeze.!

To make matters even sweeter I got the shipping charges waived (I have no idea why but I didn't dispute it) and I used my Amazon Visa rewards points to pay for it so I got it for free. Can't wait to get it to the range again. Now if there were only a way to eliminate the slot for the loaded chamber indicator. I never use the LCI either. I always check the chamber condition the old fashioned way, open the action and put your eyeballs on the chamber. I forget the silly thing is even there.

I've installed the similar bushing made and sold by Sam Lam, and it totally transforms the Mark III. It improves the trigger, and makes field stripping a breeze.

Highly recommended for all Mark III owners.
