congrats, i have a 4" bull barrel model. really fun plinker!

here's a vid that makes the dis-assembly look much more simple. they get a bad rep for being a pain to take down....when i bought mine the salesperson told me it was such a pain to take apart, that i should NEVER take it apart and just lock the bolt back & swab it out to clean it....lmao! it really isn't bad at all.

great gun..you won't regret it.

It is a PITA to take down, but I found that a "Small" jewelers screwdriver or small hole punch if used "CAREFULLY" can assist in removing some parts that are "tight" at the beginning. Ruger also sells a "takedown" tool that they claim is for the LC380(and they include one when you buy it), But my Guy at the shop where we got ours says it will work on any gun....I Had the MK II forever. Grabbed the 22/45 4.4" threaded Barrel last summer as an "i Want it" birthday present. This years "happy birthday to me" presents are a little late,..but finally tomorrow we ride to Prescott again to pick up my new 12Ga, Her new .410, and our .32's..

it gave some probs at first....now i can take apart as quick as the guy in that video. my AR is more tedious to clean imo. i honestly think its just slightly more trouble than the average firearm.

of course...there's always the chance i'm doing a terrible job!

My fingers are still aching from figuring it out last night. But at least I did it a few times so I know the procedure. But For as much as i look forward to breaking it in i dint look forward to disassembling it again.

I bought a Craftsmen mallet(hammer) that had 4 different heads with different levels of hardness that could be screwed on and off the double sided head of the mallet. This used with a small wooden dowl made getting that mainspring pin out from the top of the barrel a lot easier on my MkIII Target.

I found that after a few breakdowns it gets a lot easier. PITA is an understatement for the manual of arms for this weapon. It's been out since the 50's, Ruger needs to update this issue or make a new model to sell alongside the Mk series. JMHO though, I still love my MkIII.

Here is mine, ready for Steel Challenge events. I love the C-More red dot. Worth the money.

I'm thinking about the NC Star green dot. Not too pricey and I think pretty good quality.

I saw it on eBay for $70 delivered. But I know FFL has them and I prefer to give him the business provided he's got a reasonable price for it.
