LCI filler
Good looking product but unfortunately Ruger didn't do me any favors with the 22/45 Lite. The "inner" barrel was twisted ever so slightly so I had to use a dremel to cut the pin holding the orginal LCI in. I then found the TK replacement would not fit because of a slight lip from the inner barrel. I used a dremel to sand down the TK replacement and now it looks great. Good product but know that if you are putting in into a 22/45 Lite you may need to modify it.

I have no problem with the concept of a loaded chamber indicator, but I did experience some failure to feeds from mine getting dirty and sticky. A cleaning would fix it, but during a single range visit it would get dirty enough to start sticking. That is why I recommend this part! The LCI insert looks great and the black finish is a near perfect match.

Worthwhile mod
This is a good mod which simplifies cleaning a bit and eliminates one of the unnecessary features dreamed up by the lawyers. A refrigerator magnet wouldn't extract the LCI pin so I used the "telescoping magnet parts picker upper" I had (about $3 from Harbor Freight) which did the trick. This part fits perfectly. I used a bit of blue loctite on the set screw (probably not necessary). The finish doesn't match my blued barrel that well, but it probably blends in nicely with a matte barrel. The original LCI is actually less noticeable, since the color is closer to that of the barrel. Not a big deal unless you're obsessive about such things.

Great mod to the Mark III 22/45
Easy addition to add to the pistol. Watching some of the youtube videos using a magnet to get the pin out was just the trick. Very nice finely machined metal piece. Great innovation, much easier to keep gun clean.

LCI Replacement Insert
Another high quality product from Tandemkross. Excellent fit and easy installation. Make shure you use a strong magnet to remove the existing LCI pin.
