spamboli: that did the trick! Thank you for making such a clear, concise, and
Josh Nance: This is the best vid for the mk3. Wow.... i mean, its a dead nuts accurate
.22 but holy god. I had this piece of crap apart today to clean and i was
just shocked by the unnecessary complexity of the gun. The difficulty in
disassembly/reassembly is un f'ing believable. I can strip my SAR b6p in 45
seconds. Elegance in simplicity. This gun reminds me of an older BMW. Too
many god damn parts to do the same job as a ford. Guess which design is
always the best/most reliable. The simple one.
Anyway, my hands are raw but that POS is clean as a pin and reassembled
thanks to the video here. Thank you
MrSharingINFO: Very informative video!
Frank Guido: yup thats the problem !! just picked a mark 3 up today took apart to clean
,sure enough ,bolt will only come back about one half inch, tried to get
bolt tension hinge out ,will not come out. i'll see if this will work
Douglas Stewart: Thank you. Understanding the mechanics makes a huge difference. Turns
out.. I was good I just needed to pull the trigger when trying to lock the
main spring assembly.
Sh3riffGotcha: That was an awesome video lol. I was leaning toward the Buckmark just from
hearing the horror stories from people about taking apart the Rugers, but
now I feel pretty confident that it's a 50/50 decision and I can go with
the better feeling gun. As opposed to just getting the Buckmark because the
field stripping is easier.
emilio contreras: Man am I glad you made this video. It was just what I needed to get my gun
to work again. Thanks keep the good videos coming.
Jerry Johnson: Thanks so much!!! Your video helped very much. I did not save it the first
time i watched it i could kick my own butt for that. I do not know if you
have a video for "Fixing a main spring housing on Ruger 22/45 Mark III" but
i could never hurt. But if the person followed this video they would not
have that problem in the first place. Thanks Alot !!!
GameringGuy: Thanks for the video. It saved me haha.
popeyepalmer: You saved me. It was the dingus! Why they do not mention that in the manual
is beyond belief. Thanks
Joke Clown: Life and/or assembling Mark III ,both are much about the proper placing of
the dingus/ petsela.
You did great ! Nice video . ss
Yeppppper: THANK YOU!! I could get the entire gun back together but couldn't get the
mainspring to swing back into place without it pulling the pin out. Insert
clip pull trigger and it swings into place just like it should! Wish I
would have found your video 2+ hours ago!
noBuzzkillin: You are very welcome my friend. Thanks for the kind feedback.. makes
it.worth the work.
Bill Campbell: Don't take it apart... just take off any non-metal components, spray
everything with brake cleaner liberally (not the green), spray out with
air, oil, spray out with air
ivan36ss: Cool man! That's great:) The Dingus is where it should be. Power to the
Dingus! Great video brother!!!
Dallas Dave: Thank you!!!!
noBuzzkillin: Excellent. Glad to contribute a little.
Samantha Ballard: I am trying to put my Ruger back together, and somehow the dingus moved
into the wrong position after I put the pin in. The mainspring housing is
stuck. I am unable to disassemble that gun. The slide will only go back
about a half an inch. Do you have any suggestions? No matter what I do,
that Mainspring housing will not come out.
Holiday Harbor Marina: Is that special tool part of a singing bowl?
noBuzzkillin: Glad to add a little clarity.
noBuzzkillin: @ivan36ss Haha.. Thanks bro.
noBuzzkillin: Damn the dingus!!
noBuzzkillin: right on man.
J Stauffer: The guy who designed this gun is a Dingus. Ever put the mag in backwards?
fredgold5252: I've viewed 3 or 4 different videos of this process and I can say with
authority, THIS IS THE BEST ONE! The hammer strut is so critical in
reassembly you just wouldn't believe it. With THIS VIDEO I was able to get
my pistol back together no problem.
noBuzzkillin: Thank you very much for compliment..
cruiser1947: Thank you very much for posting this video!!!! I had my Mark 1 apart and
couldn't get it together until I saw your video. I finally got it together
. Thanks again.
Milsurp13: Very helpful,thank you. Probably the best Ruger Mark III re-assembly
instructions I've seen.
noBuzzkillin: Thank you very much. It's surprising to me that there aren't more vids out
there with better explanations. I was having a heck of a time with mine, so
I figured there would be others too, but I had no idea how many.. Thanks
for watching man.
Eric Egerton: free the dingus!
lamargreenleaf: The Ruger Mark1-3 are based on the Japanese Nambu. That's part of the
reason Americans find them inscrutable.
flamengishta: Thanks man, I watched 3 other very detailed videos but you were the only
one that explained the proper assembly portion that keeps the dingus
pressing on the main spring. Just about threw away this damned gun here on
the first day having it because i couldn't find a video that showed why my
bolt wouldn't go back after assembly..dingus+mainspring = proper reassembly.
Tim Brown: You did a great job of explaining the disassembly/ reassembly process! Now
I can clean my MKIII .
Mike LaVelle: Thank you so much. Oh Master of the Dingus.... thank you for the where's
and Why's. I had it 90% percent right.... but as you know that's about 100%
wrong. Without gravity this gun is'nt going back together...
noBuzzkillin: @ITHINKUREALESUK Wow, never taken it down. That speaks volumes for the
pistol. Pretty amazing that with just real basic maintenance it can run
lamargreenleaf: Naming the parts correctly is very helpful. Eg. Hammer strut is not a
07SilverStreak: All hail noBuzzkillin and the Mighty Dingus.
ebomey: Liked and favored! ... AGAIN!
noBuzzkillin: Thanks brother.
noBuzzkillin: Haha.. I hear you. It's out of my own frustration that I knew there must be
other's suffering with the same issues. Glad it helped a little.
James deGrood: Thanks for posting the video. This is the only good explanation of the
reassembly that I've seen online.
bowtech340: Thank you very much, Great video extremely helpful......
jntroisi: The problem I have when putting it together is getting the damn pin through
the lower and upper receiver. The upper and lower have to be absolutely
perfectly aligned and its a pain to get them to align perfectly. Just spent
an hour just doing that. Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
noBuzzkillin: Perfect. That makes it worth it.
Doug P: FINALLY!! A videos that ACTUALLY shows how and why! You're awesome!
