Disassembly and reassembly of the Ruger .22 pistols is no fun, but it's something that's worth doing every once in a while.
Why does everyone think the Ruger pistols are such a PITA?
I had trouble, once, the first time I re-assembled my first MKII Target that I had back in the '80s.
Once I figured out the hammer position and hammer strut thing, it was easy.
The only problem I have is I sometimes need a wooden mallet to knock the barrel loose when dis-assembling or back on when re-asembling.
I now have a MKII Bull Barrel that I shot the other day.
It's been years since I've messed with it.
I didn't even have to look at the manual to tear it down, clean and re-assemble it. (which I've always done every time after shooting)
I think the gun that started the company is one of Bill Ruger's most ingenious and best designs.
