    Ruger MKII 22 pistol - Two piece bolt question.

    Well, there you go! Curious as to what the incidence of failure is? My guess is a fairly low rate of failure. I’m not going to worry about it. If mine separates I will either have it silver soldered or I will install a screw from the back. I just finished building out a complete MKII Target...

    Ruger MKII 22 pistol - Two piece bolt question.

    At one point, Ruger made the bolt for the MarkII 22 pistol in two pieces. The cocking ears look like they were silver soldered on to the bolt body. You can see a definite seam at this junction. Bumped into someone the other day that recommended having the bolt reinforced at this seam by welding...

    Ruger MKII 22 Automatic Pistol

    Good to know. I’ve changed yet another bolt (MKIV) out in two of my MKIIs. Both function perfectly. My feeling is that either the MKIII or a MKIV bolt will run just fine based on the way they function. Wonder why Ruger insisted that I return the pistol to them to have the bolt “fitted”… no...

    Ruger MKII 22 Automatic Pistol

    I’m relatively new to this forum but not new to the shooting sports. I was a competitor (Small bore rifles) for 16 years. I do quite a bit of my own gunsmithing. At the risk of offending some members, I have a particular fondness for the MKII 22 pistol...happen to believe that Ruger got it right...
