Product Description

Now manufactured in steel on Amazon! All TANDEMKROSS MKIIIMD series bushings come with a LIFETIME guarantee! We all know the Ruger Mark III (22/45) is a terrific 22lr handgun that has proven its worth over and over. However many owners complain about the magazine disconnect and the problems it causes for quick mag changes and feed issues. This high quality steel bushing replaces the Ruger factory bushing and allows you to safely remove the Magazine Disconnect from the firearm. In doing so your magazine will seat better in the magwell minimizing failure to feeds and allow the magazine to drop freely when released. This is essential for tactical competition shooting and self defense scenarios. Although there are instructions on the internet showing the use of washers and other parts this can be unreliable and unsafe! Why not use an actual part that is designed for the job? This part is machined to the right tolerances and lets the hammer move properly at the correct speed. If you know how to clean this gun you can easily remove the disconnect and you will be pleased with the fit and final result. Buyer assumes all liability. Please check your local laws regarding the requirement for a Magazine Disconnect.

Watch the video on youtube and it is very easy to install.
Timothy Mitchell
The Volquartsen kit and this hammer bushing made a significant improvement to the trigger quality of my MKIII Ruger 22/45.

Dropped right in, mags now drop free and I can disassemble without inserting a magazine.

I bought this bushing a while back but decided not to use it because it was made of aluminum. I installed it today due to boredom. The product works as advertised. My main problem is the tolerances seem pretty loose to me. The unused tandemkross bushing measured 7 thousandths smaller on the OD where it interfaces with the hammer compared to the factory bushing with about 9k rounds. Being aluminum, smaller than factory, and a critical bushing, I can't imagine this component will last very long. I noticed on their site they offer a steel bushing that was not offered when I purchased mine. If you do purchase this product I would recommend the steel version.

Update:
I received a an email from customer service at Tandemkross regarding my rating. I had originally rated this 3 stars, but now I am rating it at 5 stars. I was given three options: 1) replace it with one made of A36, 2) replace it with one made of stainless steel, and 3) a full refund. If the aluminum bushing gives me any problems, I will likely take them up on one of the first 2 options, and likely purchase a second mainly due to this customer service. I am glad to support any company that provides this level of customer service, especially a company that guarantees a solution to a problem that may or may not exist after another 10k+ rounds. You can't beat a lifetime guarantee AND a company that stands behind it.

After reading a number of consumer reviews, I decided to buy the Tandemkross hammer bushing for a matching pair of Ruger Mark III Hunter pistols that my wife and I shoot on a regular basis. I had actually replaced the magazine disconnect on both of these pistols with Volquartsen hammer bushings shortly after purchasing the pistols. It was certainly nice getting rid of the magazine disconnect. Field stripping and reassembling these guns has become much easier without the magazine disconnect, and magazines pop out quite nicely without that factory part. The Volquartsen hammer bushing proved to be fairly effective overall, however, there was a bit of side-to-side wobble in the hammer of both guns. I was not thrilled with this little bit of sloppiness in the internals, and I began to suspect that a small, but annoying percentage of misfeeds, jammed cartridges, etc. might be related to this lack of tightness. Seems that the Volquartsen bushing did not seat flat against the side of the hammer, essentially leaving open the space previously occupied by the spring wire from the magazine disconnect.

In researching the Tandemkross hammer bushing, it became evident that there was essentlally a stepped double flange that allowed the bushing to seat tightly against the hammer. Sure enough, replacing the Volquartsen part with the Tandemkross bushing resulted in a tight fit that provided lateral support for the hammer and really tightened things up. After a long session at the shooting range for both pistols, we managed to go through a 1/2 brick of ammo with only one stovepipe to detract from an otherwise perfect performance by a hodge-podge of ammo that included some stuff that was at least 30 years old.

I should have listened to the instructions and took pictures but since I have built and repaired many guns I just jumped in. It took a couple You Tube videos to figure out where the stuff goes back in but once I did the gun worked great. I can't say it improved reliability any as my 22/45 LITE has been very good since the get go. But I can say the mags drop free like they should and who the hell needs a mag safety? Especially when this gun is such a PITA to field strip to begin with. Ruger really dropped the ball adding a mag safety on a gun that requires several trigger pulls to field strip and put back again, what a joke! Get this bushing and make it right!

I heard about this product from some internet gun forums postings from people in my area. It came highly recommended and I wanted to remove my mag safety, so I gave it a shot. My order was processed fast and shipped quickly. Everything was packaged well, was of good quality and included ample documentation (much appreciated) for how to install the part in my Ruger 2245. I would suggest reading through the instructions first entirely and have all tools ready (punch, small pick(s) for manipulating sear spring, light etc...) handy. I kind of dove in so it took me a little longer than others have reported it taking them, but it is straight forward and now my magazines fall out as desired. One thing that I would recommend is to pay attention to the sear spring that rests in a groove in the hammer pin. It locks the pin in place and you have to get it out of the groove. Once out, the pin will slide out much easier without damaging the frame or the spring. Take your time, and it is fairly straight forward. You'll be much happier with you gun afterward.

First off the shipping took half the time stated, so when it showed up a week early I was very happy.

The installation was a pain. I had seen several videos and have taken my mark iii apart a few times. My problem is simple, tiny parts and big hands don't go together that easy. After dropping another part for the umpteenth time I was a bit frustrated. Not the parts fault.

Once it was in, it fit perfectly. Smoooth. Functions right. About to order another for my 22 45. All too happy to get rid of that pain in the butt mag disconnect. Mags go in and drop out easier now.
