I Absolutely HATE disassembling my Mk II...

Why is it so damn difficult to disassemble the Mark II? I love using it; it's a dream to shoot, but when it comes time to clean it, I feel like throwing it in the dumpster! Does anyone one out there have any tips or tricks to taking this thing apart? I don't like the idea of getting rid of any of my guns, but I'm on the verge of selling it and buying something less annoying to maintain. Someone please help!

I feel the same way about reassembleing it. The only time I get bother taking it apart is when I remember that I'll need to put it back together.

What specifically is your complaint? The part with the paper clip or the part with the hammer?

I can't get the retaining pin that holds the receiver to the frame out. I tried tapping the top with a mallet, but it won't budge. I'm about to try using some channel locks to see if I can push the pin through that way.

I have never disassembled one but i put my budies back together after he did an yes it was a pain, Brownell's sells a parts kit that swaps out some of the hammer parts and supposedly eliminates the problem you might want to check it out.

When I went to Ruger armorer school, at their plant in NH. They agreed that the dis-assembly was a PITA to perform, and they explained that they get them sent back in the mail, to re-assemble, from time to time. Yes, there is a kit that speeds and simplifies the process, I forget who makes it...but I've always wanted one.

Install a Majestic Arms Ltd, "Ruger .22 Auto Pistol Speed Strip Kit". Costs around $49 Easy to install. Allows bolt to slide out of the back of the receIver by taking out an Allen screw. Makes cleaning from the breech end a snap ! I've used them in 2 MK II's for 20 yrs w/o a single problem...........

Over the years, and unfortunately so, the Mark series have become "less" through Ruger's careless manufacturing and finishing however, they remain a fine piece if the small PITA assembly problems are "fixed". My latest mark III is the heavy, tapered target barrel model in blue steel and I ran into the difficulty of disassembly 0n it! I have not tried the part mentioned above, but am diagnosing the trouble and working on a fix with original equipment. When I am certain that I have solved this problem, I will share it here for folks interested in maintaining thier own firearms.

I long ago foolishly allowed a friend to talk me out of my mark I Target of 1976 vintage, a great shooter that one! The mark IIs have been excellent shooters and I currently have the SS mark II std in 6 inch with original fixed sights. I was able to fit a front sight hood to reduce glare and found it to work very well, I can bring pics of that if anyone is interested.

This latest mark III Target I have is the result of letting my daughter "talk" me out of a SS mark III slabside Target model! It came apart and went back together easily but my new mark III is a work in progress.

Please don't give up on these guns gentlement! they are well worth the trouble of tuning them into submission!!!

Thumbs up

I have a Mark I and a Bull-Barreled Mark II.

I've worked on many Guns in my life--Graduate of APG'S Small Arms Repair School.....

And I've never taken either of my Ruger .22s apart.

It may sound Cowardly, but I'm afraid to...
