Okay, here's another embarrassing thing I discovered when I was putting my gun and it's parts into Ziploc bags. That straight pin was part of the grips where they hook together at the bottom. So, really, only two of those parts are from my gun.

Yeah, I know. I've heard stories. But that doesn't make it any easier.


I think after I 'get over it' and I'm not tired, like I was last night, I'll view more YouTube videos and Google around a bit and try again. I tackled the project late because I thought it would go smoothly (who am I trying to kid) and I could proudly post before and after pictures of my gun with it's very, VERY awesome grips.

I'm off Tuesday so I'll try again then. I am NOT walking into a gun shop with my gun in a Ziploc bag. I'm bringing it to JonM, if I don't get it done myself before then.

Go here and look around, I think with this will help you put it back together on your own and then you will know.
This will help.

You can do it...we can help.

Welcome to the club. I've done that a few times when working on my old sxs and now I've pretty much learned where everything goes. Hope you get it back together soon.

Happy shooting

I've fallen into the same issue a time or two several years go when I would buy jacked up guns from friends for cheap.

Book mark this link Schematics Home - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS

They tend to have most of what you will need in looking up schematics on guns. If you can find it there, you can find something damn close to get you rolling in the right direction. Worst case, google the $hit out of it.

Liked the post about not learning if you don't jump in and try it. You'll figure it out on your own in time and be better off for it.

i usually clean guns at nite when im tired wife and i watching something mindless like family guy and a very small part goes winging across the room. she usually gets a good yuck or three while i prowl about the floor with a flashlight closely supervised by her cat.

it happens. it sucks but it happens.

Yeah, I can't tell you how many times I picked pieces up off the floor last night. And worse yet, the first YouTube I looked up for help was a Mark III. I didn't realize it at first. Well, the part I can't get to fit in has a little spring/wire on it on the Mark III but not on the Mark II. I thought I lost that piece and spent a good 20 minutes looking for a part I never really lost. I'm telling you. I am an accident waiting to happen.


And see in my signature line where it says "Honor Student: School of Hard Knocks? I'm not kidding. That is how I learn, unfortunately. I use that signature on every forum I've ever registered for. It's just..............me!!

I am going to try it again Tuesday when I'm off work and well rested. You guys have sent me some good suggestions and I hope to be able to be successful with this new info.

Thank you, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I think this may be the key to any success. This was much clearer to me than the blow up schematics, though I will utilize both.


Except now I discovered that the two very small parts I have had springs on them......which I do not have. Now back to searching the floor for two very small springs. *sigh* If I don't find them I wonder if Ruger will send me some.

A good way to find lost tiny parts is put panty hose over the end of a vqcuum cleaner hose and get after it

Why...does that put you in a better mood to look for the part?
