Thanks, I bookmarked the videos.
They're pretty good, aren't they?

ruger mk1,2,3 are designed to be dry fired. you cannot hurt them by doing it.

a simple thing for taking them down and putting together is the hammer has to be in the uncocked or fired position the remove or insert the mainspring housing. it then has to be in the cocked or ready to fire position to remove or insert the bolt. to get the hammer in the fired or uncocked postion with the mainspring already out pull the trigger and gently flick your gun holding hand forward so the muzzle points down. to get the hammer in the ready to fire or cocked position do the same thing but flick the muzzle upwards

ruger's instructions make a simple thing sound very complex and confusing.

Thanks Jon. The instructions are confusing to me and I'm not a noob.

Try as I might, I cannot get the pin to completely seat in the receiver. I've watched a bunch of videos and played with this thing until I'm frustrated. Then I go back and try again. I'm sure I've got it right, but the pin will not seat.

Oh, I know that, this isn't my first rodeo. But I'm having a helluva time.

As we spoke about, a tap with a brass hammer will solve that problem. Once they've been apart a few times it will get easier. Also, make sure the receiver is seated fully on the frame (if you took it down that far)...

I did. Okay, it's time to head into the garage and try some hammer persuasion. I'll let you know how it goes. What a PITA.
