Take down 22/45

Where do I get a manual for taking down my 22/45 for cleaning or could someone tell me how? I see a lever on the back of the grip but not brave enough to open it up all the way. I have a 5 1/2 bull barrel

Any help would be apprecaited

You can download a manual direct from the Ruger sight. For the 22/45, here is the link.


You may also want to browse through this website:


It's for a Mark 2 but they are the same in field stripping.

Follow the instructions in the manual to the letter and you shouldn't have a problem. Pay particular attention to what it says about where the muzzle should be pointing when reassembling. Make sure the hammer is all the way forward when you are putting the MSH housing back into the gun. Muzzle goes straight up when closing the housing latch to allow the hammer strut to line up with the mainspring cap.

Good Luck..........it isn't hard if you follow the directions.
