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.
Charles Barron: 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!
Kenneth 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!
jdsparks100: Thankyou times a million, you are the only reason i could get my 1962 back together again!!!!
Rick Rector: THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!! Amber, I have almost tried doing this hanging from a tree! God bless, and safe shooting. Dave
Charles Lemak: This is clear, concise, and easy to follow. I very recently inherited a Ruger MkI with a bull barrel. It is essentially unused but unfortunately was stored near moisture and has several rust spots and minor pitting. I was going to strip it to clean and re-blue it, so I went to a local gun shop and the owner practically screamed, "No! They are nearly impossible to reassemble. Now I know, no gun is impossible to reassemble, so I came home did a search, got lucky and came upon your site. I followed your instructions, and it was a walk in the park. Thank you so much!
Eduardo Peralez: Thanks
madtrexman: Very well done! I have owned a Mk1 target model for close to 30 years. I have it figured out but it is never easy. I will try your method next time. You made it look easy! Thank you!
luckydogx2: Great instructional video. I've always dreaded taking my MK I apart, not any more!
