DS08: any idea how to get the latch back in if you accidentally open the back
latch before dry firing it?
Steve Bardfield: Thank you Amber!
The trick with inserting a magazine and holding trigger back to get the
mainspring bolt stop assembly in correctly is a life saver. I have been
battling mine since the mid 80s and thanks to you it easy process now.
Marl Schmidt: Thank you,Fumbled for 20 minutes until I watched your instruction video
Eric Ritchey: Very good job - Thank you
BR5499a: I just realize why you did such a good job. You name, "Amber", is also my
daughters. She too is smart.
Don Kopp: Great video too the point and no info you don't need!!! I like that!!!!
BR5499a: I don't use my Mark I as much as I might because it is always a challenge
to get it back together. I'll give your technique a try. You make it look
Davis Finley V: Thank you thank you!! Thought I broke my gun until your video
Todd Lococo: Son of a b$tch! I watched your video one time and was able to get my Mk I
together in one try, this was after many unsuccessful attempts watching
others do the same - THANK YOU!!! I love this pistol but this thing is a
bear to get back together. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
cathead2008: WOW! I went online and found an old Ruger manual for my Dad's MKI but spent
hours trying to get it to function after reassembly. YOU were what got me
squared away! Thanks.
13thconstant: I did it, cleaning and all in 1hr. Best YouTube video on the Ruger Mark 1.
Thank you so much. Now I can teach my wife and father in law. Thanks.
TheMarkster1957: Thanx for the info very helpful,I own a mark2 and have run into problems in
past with the fieldstrip process.
Mike Hanns: Thanks! Remember to have the safety on "F" or you'll never get the trigger
assemble to line up when you reassemble.
Amber Perry Patterns: Most newer handguns are much easier! :-)
longshotkidd89: Thank you so much... me and my buddy worked hours before we watched your
jolson2187: Very nice. Finally some one that knows what they are talking about.
John Ingram: Great video thank you so much, I was stuck on reassembly, and like yours
mine need a whack on the barrel to take the edge past flush so the pin
would fit back in.
Amber Perry Patterns: Thanks for the comment - glad I could help!
MrPapull: You do the best job videoing of field stripping explanation that I have
seen . Yours is simple, but thorough.I considered making one until I saw
yours... it''s awsome.
kthopkins1: Thank you so much!
Amber Perry Patterns: My understanding is that whether to dry fire or not depends on the firearm
brand & model rather than the caliber. In this case, it's a necessary step
in the field strip. I have not seen any negative effects with the pistol.
I've recently heard that dry fire isn't recommended for target pistols
except to take it down, but it is important to contact the manufacturer of
your firearm if you have further questions on it.
Quentin Lewis: Excellent video! I had a Mark II a few years ago, and I knew all of
this...but I just bought a Mark I yesterday and basically remembered the
process and that there were "tricks", but I could not for the life of me
remember the tricks.....my problem with my last pistol was the alignment of
that pin.....you look like you had that down pat though! Thanks for the
video.....it is excellent!
brindlec: This really helped, I was getting frustrated with the hammer strut.
Victor Chan: Thanks for the illustration! I could comprehend even before I am waiting
for my pistol from background check.
Amber Perry Patterns: Glad to help!
Crystal Newman: Awesome, MUCH needed tutorial! Nicely done!
Tom Slovenski: Nice video! You make it look too easy!
biouhu3: thank you so much
wfspeterson: Just bought a Ruger Mark 1 two days ago! You explained the diss-assembly
very succinctly, Thanks! I guess I got lucky, mine was very easy to take
apart and put back together by hand, without a rubber mallet.
Amber Perry Patterns: Glad it helped!
foxtrot684: Great video ! The Ruger Mark 2 can be a real pain to put back together, you
made it look super simple. I will save this in my favorites as a reference.
Eddie Horvath: Just wanted to say thanks for this video....extremely helpful.....written
instructions were nearly impossible to follow so THANK YOU!
unmich: Thanks for the reassembly tips -- worked like a charm!
john kitz: oh my god a woman with a gun duck
Amber Perry Patterns: :-)
Quaboosttro: very nicely done! thanks!
07apollo7: I was having a lot of trouble with the hammer position. The bolt would not
slide after re-assembly. This video solved my problem. Thank you.
DarkTubeToo: Abusive dry fire on rimfire type firearms can be an issue. Usually in older
models. You may potentially ruin the firing pin. However, I have dry fired
my 10/22 and a Mark I over the past 20 years and I have to yet replace the
pin. Plus as stated above it is necesarry for the take down and further
assembly. Ruger makes great products that are easy to fix and modify if
13thconstant: Great video. I feel much better trying this myself now. Local gun store
wants $30 to clean it. Which id much rather learn to do myself. Thanks
spraynpray: I wish I knew how to get the rear spring assembly forward. Pushing it
forward cams out it out of the frame.
kelbs33: Great video. Just bought one and had no experience with Ruger. Perfect
field strip after just watching your video once. Thanks.
13thconstant: Are all hand guns this easy to break down clean and reassemble?
southparkfan1027: A lot better than trying to find a disassembly video on expert villages
pwgray: This was my first time field stripping and cleaning a Ruger automatic .22
Mark I pistol that is new to me. The original directions in the manual I
have said "a slight blow to the rear of the bolt to disengage". I tried
this first and was just too timid to give it the smack it needed. Your
video was excellent and showed me exactly what to do. The key though and
even though you say it, it can't be over emphasized is to make sure the
hammer is in the correct position. Thanks for great video.
omahas9000: THANKS for sharing your expertise and experience. I just purchased a really
nice 1966 Mk 1 and am anxious to take it apart and clean, etc., but had
read about potential difficulties. I feel a lot better tackling on my own
MrHondaguy1: Thanks... very helpful!
your name here: Nice and clear! Thanks for sharing.
