    Default Ruger Mark I reassembly- AAARRGGHHH!!!

    Hot Damn! This thing is gettin me down. This is about the 4th time I've disassembled/reassembled the thing and it's been interesting but mostly it hasn't been too much fun. This is the first time I haven't been able to get it to work, though. When I thought I was done and everything was where it needed to be I found that the bolt wouldn't slide all the way back and the safety wouldn't move. I tried to take it down again to see what's going on in there but the pull-out handle thing is totally jammed! It will only move out maybe a quarter of an inch. One thing I know is this- I won't be pursuing a career in gunsmithing in this lifetime. Can anybody tell me what boneheaded mistake I made and how to correct it? Since someone will probably be laughing at me soon I'm gonna beat you to the punch and laugh at myself. What a moron I am

    Reassembly of the Ruger .22 pistol requires liberal use of profanity, a rubber mallet, and a block of wood.

    I've heard many bad things about the take down reassembly process. Its gotta be all true because there is an aftermarket kit available to add to your pistol making working on it a snap.

    It's a MK II but eat your heart out!

    Default grips

    Rusty barrels, when you cleaned this fine piece did you take off the grips??

    If the answer is yes, the a pin has fallen out of place and you will never
    get it back together...

    That's what the previous owner of mine must have decided. The first time I cleaned it I should have used some kind of scraping tool on it first. I probably could have filled a couple thimbles with all the gunk that was in there!

    Jim: No, I didn't remove the grips this time but I have previously and I'm not sure what pin you may be referring to. Anyway, this thing is still locked up and I think I may use the damn GUN as a target next time I'm at the range! If you can point me in the right direction to get this thing working again I would be MOST appreciative!
