Quick update. I was on vacation this past week, so not much progress. I have a hardened jig ready for testing so I plan to cut the first receiver this coming week, so I will hopefully be posting the first build tutorial. I do need to make a barrel assembly since I think I want to try out the barrel design at the same time.

For rear sights, there are a couple options. There is a cutout in the jig to make the standard Ruger dovetail for the standard rear sight and aftermarket sights. Or, you could just use a rail, there are three holes in the top of the jig for tapping the standard Ruger MKIII rail mount. Or you can use both.

Ruger tactical sight

Ruger 22/45 with Venom red dot

Ruger 22/45 level sight

You would want to use an adjustable rear sight for these.

The barrel will be tapped to mount this type of front sight
