My 5.5 in Ruger Mk II has been back to Ruger once, but minor stuff. Of the Three brands, the Ruger is the last one I'd prefer to take apart and clean. But you see......... that's just my opinion.... and that's what was asked for in the original post in this thread.
I purchased a Mk II stainelss steel with the bull barrel about 10 years ago. I bought it used and it had had the trigger worked on for an ultra light, crisp pull. It was one of the nicest pistols I've ever shot. The only problem I ever had out of it was the first time I took it apart. There's a trick to putting it back together that few would figure out on their own.
Always a pleasure to shoot, never jammed/misfired, and was way more accurate than I'll ever be.
