Did this video help you?

Rooster: Thank you for walking through the assembly / disassembly step. I wouldn't have figured it out on my own. The nuances were very helpful, we're cleaned and ready to go. I am surprised and impressed this was demonstrated by a female. You're a keeper....

Bryan OShaughnessy: Amber: Thank you for this video. I've owned my Ruger Mark I from new for 26 years. I took it apart a few months after purchase to clean it but had to take it to a gunsmith to reassemble. Recently, my guilty conscience (and many FTL's) made me try again. Your vid made it possible. Can't wait to get out to the range. And buy better ammo!

Evan Hosmer: I watched several videos on this proceedure before I watched yours. You were the only one that mentioned that the bolt need to be fully down and you need to pull the trigger as you try to lower the bolt stop latch down. Worked like a charm. Maybe I will shoot this old gun more often now. Thanks!

Hans- Jürgen Wiegand: This is the best video on the Ruger, I've seen so far! Thank you!

bowhunter2439: one of my favorite guns , I was having a hard time getting it back together when I came across your video, thanks for posting shes running like a fine tuned clock now LOL...!!!

BrewHound22: Thank you for this! Your mentioning of pointing the barrel up and pulling down the trigger are crucial to the process. Not many people mention that.

ws......I: the tip of using a block of wood cut at 45 degrees for pressure on the pin really helped me. Thanks.

frodes76: Thanks for the upload, wery helpfull 😀

Rick Goodman: Great job explaining this. I recently was given and old Mk2 and had no idea how to field strip it. Nothing like my other handguns for sure.

madison_barrow1: very helpful

Al Chapman: Thank you very much, great job explaining all!

Michael Garner: Thanks a lot for this video. I really liked your organized presentation of this how-to and your clear, no-nonsense explanation of each step along the way. I especially liked your presentation of the tools we'd need, and your explanation of why your pistol required the rubber mallet, and most of all, watching you whack that sucker to get the job done. That sounds like a joke, but it isn't: I really appreciated you showing us how much force is actually required to get the barrel/receiver off and back on again -- that will be very useful knowledge if my pistol turns out to be stubborn (i.e. I won't worry about whacking it). Thank you again. This was an extremely helpful video.

tod biker: Perfect video, 5 mins., not bogged with unnecessary commentary. Caveats for the quirks of your pistol noted so as not to confuse the viewer. Thanks for a go to video if I purchase one of these.

CAB dvc: Very nice presentation. Ram-Line published this years ago [like 1985] and we always included their two page copy with every Ruger MK I,II, and III, we sold over the years. Works very well, as your presentation shows. Why Ruger never included this back then was beyond me. I don't know if they do now but its never too late. Good job!

mansinman007: This has been the most helpful video I have seen on assembly. I always have trouble with the very last part. Thank you for clearing it up!

Karon Thompson: Thank you...Looks easier than I thought it would be.

Joseph Roberts: My wife's pistol. She gets to do it next time.

Kevin Bisson: Thank you so much, could always take it apart but putting it back together was always a struggle!!

Kevin J: Wow, thank you. My father just gave me his old Mark 1 and I was looking for EXACTLY this info, didn't want to wreck a gun that's nearly 60 years old.

skystonegem: My friend spent hours trying to get his old Mark 1 back together, and together we were able to accomplish little even working together on it. You broke the logjam and not only made a happy ending (did you hear the victory shot in my backyard?) but also helped set a precedent for two neighbors working as a team SUCCESSFULLY! Put a price on that! Thank you SO much!
