Disassembly Ruger Mark II


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Looking for help on taking down a Ruger Mark II In a previous thread there was a site listed for instructions , complete with video, on disassembly. I have followed these instructions to the letter, and after much swearing and lucking into the right combinations of muzzle up/down/ curse/ try again, I finially got the main spring housing out and the bolt. Now it should just be a simple push or tap and push and the receiver will move forward and off the frame. This is not the case. I have used soft wood blocks and a rubber hammer , but to no avail. I have more convincing hammers but that doesn't just seem like it ought to be the answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You got it right so far -- The barreled reciver goes foward about 1/8 or 1/4 of an inch or so foward. Its a real tight fit and a little tough to get off/on.
Just remember when putting it back together that the hammer strut has to go in its pocket on the main spring housing.
But if you just want to clean the barrel out just pull out the bolt and your there.

bamajohn is right. a little more force with mallet and or wood block. you got the right stuff. are you lookin' at http://www.1bad69.com or the info section at http://www.ontargetguns.com or http://www.rimfiresports.com. another spot to look thru posts is http://www.markii.org. don't be surprised to encounter a kind of "chinese puzzle" when assembling, but after once, it is pretty easy. the hammer strut is the main hurdle for new MKII owners.

replacement pin

Now someone makes a replacement for that pin holding the bolt in place. it's an allen head screw so you don't have to take out the complete assembly to remove the bolt.

Anyone know who makes that little replacement part, I want one! Would save a lot of trouble for a complete cleaning!

Thanks for everone's help!

OMG I think Ruger is trying to not have their pistol ever cleaned at all. Learning to waltz is easier than learning to do a full tear-down and reassembly on one of those. It does work , however, once you learn all the steps. I was using the bad69 site. Thanks for all the help. Thinking that replacement screw/bolt might be a way to go.

three out of my four Ruger .22's have optics that would interefere with the quick strip kit, but i really don't see how the kit would really help anything. the field strip (just bolt removal) can be done easily enough once the hammer strut is mastered. but hey that's just me. it won't hurt anything to have it.
there was a thread on the forum at http://www.markii.org that covered this topic. if you want to check it out go to the link, click on forum and do a search. (i cant figger how to cut & paste a url or i'd post a link)

You have to have the hammer in the rearward, cocked position, to let the bolt in or out of the upper receiver. Then you have to pull the trigger and jar the hammer up, uncocked, in order to let the mainspring housing go all the way into the gun, and let the bolt come back all the way. There's a little crosspin in the frame, that the hammer strut can hang up on, and sometimes, getting the big pin, part of the mainspring, jackknife folder thingy, up thru the hole, behind the rear sight, can be a PITA, too. Once you've done it correctly a couple of times, tho, you will see that it's actually very simple, if you just go at it properly.

After a while it loosens up some so complete tear downs are easier. I remember the first time I tried to put mine together....OH MY LORD... However these guns are great shooters, I really enjoy shooting mine.

ombesb: Ah, memories. the Ruger Mark II was my first handgun, and I remember sweat tripping from my nose the first time I took it apart to clean it. Whoever called it a chinese puzzle hit the nail on the head. To this day, this many years later, I still find myself having to refer to the manual after sudenly blanking on one of the inverted, upside-down-turning steps. A little tip I learned long ago: put a little dab of gun grease in the little square well where the barrel reciever mates with the frame. It comes apart much slicker for the next cleaning. Man, you have to love this gun!

Directions for stripping the Mark I/ II

http://www.ontargetguns.com/striptip.html

Here is the breakdown. Go online directly to the site and there are some great pictures to go with the instructions.

As others have noted:
  • Make sure the gun has been de-cocked or it will not go together
  • Make sure The hammer strut is in the correct location when you put it back together or it won't work
The Ruger likes to be cleaned or it will spray a pattern the size of a basketball. Once you have done this a couple of times it really makes sense and its simple.
