Default Emergency , HELP !

A neighbor bought himself a new plinker a few days ago , a Ruger 22/45 . After a few hundred rounds , he field stripped it to give it a good cleaning . I got to admit , they are a little tricky if you've never assembled one before .

Well , we took it apart and showed him from the git , two things you must do or it just won't work !
Stuck the poly frame on upper , showed him trigger hammer , push it down , spring up , push bolt back in , point muzzle upwards and tap to align main spring and trigger hammer and poof !

I have seen people do this a dozen times at least ! It will go back together but you can't rack it or pull trigger ! After you do it a few times , it gets easier !

Nice little shooter though !

Default Emergency , HELP !

I have to follow along with the manual every time I clean it. Worst gun ever to take apart, great .22 pistol though. Take down and cleaning is greatly improved with the Majestic Arms Speed Strip kit.

http://www.majesticarms.com/id10.html

It's a good part. I had Dino (the owner of Majestic) install the speed strip kit, the extended bolt release, mag safety removal, and trigger job on mine. Then I added the Cmore red dot, the screw-on comp, the slide racker (also Majestic) and grips. It's my Steel Challenge gun and it works great.

That's one of the reasons I sold mine!

the first few times they are difficult. and it does help to hold it upside down to reassemble it. I don't tear mine down every time to clean it. if it wasn't such a great little pistol, i'd get rid of it, just because they are not the easiest pistols to strip down.

Yeah, the Majestic Speed Kit is the way to go.

Once you've owned a Connecticut, Hi-Standard,
or a Browning Buckmark, and done a field strip on them,
one tends to dispose of the Ruger Mark series rather quickly...
so easy even a caveman can do it, with better precision barrels

I wouldn't sell my Ruger Mark II for anything.
