Teddy ruxbin: Thanks for the video and making me understand the power of the dingus. My
mainspring latch was really tough to get out, aside from that it was a
breeze following this video. Thank you again
Ken Whalen: Thanks for a very helpful video. I had a ton of trouble putting my gun back
together until I found your video. It not only explains the dingus but also
other very important things like the trigger and mag. Thanks again !!!!!!
Klemheist: Great video, I can finally put the gun away and play with my dingus!
bad@chaos: "the power of the dingus"
Craig Johnson: This is the best video on the Ruger MK series! I have to refer to this
video every time I break this pistol down. Can never remember where the
damn dingus needs to be. Thanks a lot!!
joshua gunn: Just helped a ton with my mark lol hunter thanks alot
Michael Williams: That god damn dingus!!! Thanks dude!!!
Jonathan Rubenstahl: Thank you I am glad you know how to use a flashlight to show and explain
what you are looking at and what you were doing
charles bevilacqua: Absolute best video on putting markIII back together. Great explanation at
the end explaining why the mainspring housing wont go in, used to drive me
Thomas Dow: The darn dingus was in the wrong spot! Thanks man, this video helped me
with my dingus......seriously. lol
joeb122672: Hey, thanks for the great video....
I had never really fully stripped any of my Mark 2's or Mark 3's.. mostly
because they aren't really shot that that much and a regular barrel snake ,
patches, and Q-tip type of cleaning has usually been plenty sufficient.
But last night I finally had some free time to swap over the bull barrel
(from my exact blued target model mark 3 like yours here in the video), to
my new Volquartsen CNC'd VC frame..
Everything went 100% perfectly smooth (and scratch less, lol) because of
your video here..
Man, I don't even wanta think of the hours that would have been spent
racking my brain without the videos examples.
The last step with the main-spring did take a few tries, but for some
reason the Dingus on the VC frame seemed a bit shorter(a bit harder to
engage with the Dingus)...
Atleast that's what I'm gonna stick with saying, ha ha
Bobzhuman: Thanks, new MKIII with a new cerkote finish.... couldn't get it back
together... dingus in the details...
Seanna Kelly: This is a great video. I could not figure out why the bolt would not pull
all of the way back. Once I got the dingle in the right place it worked
fine. You saved me a lot of time. I still think taking this gun apart and
putting it back together is a real bitch. I have to use wooden dowels and a
plastic hammer to get the pin out of the gun and back in again. My gun is
new so I am hoping over time it will get easier. Thanks again for a great
Tom Brown: If you are having issues with the bolt not coming back all the way, hold
the pistol; at 45 degrees (up) when you close the spring.
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
CJ Mala: EXCELLENT! What a great job of explaining the Ruger Mark III. Best video I
have seen on how to disassemble and reassemble this really great handgun!
john john: thank you sir after watching many vids F I N A LLY someone explained the
friggin dingus which as you say is the key best vid thanks
cody hodges: Best how to video ever
Bradley8787: Very helpful video! We could all do well to understand the dingus.
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.
Drew Larson: Great video. I've had my MKIII standard for a few weeks, stripped it down
last week, and STILL have not been able to get it back together properly.
It's that damn spring tension there at the end. Dingus related it seems.
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.
DrDelirious: Thanks for the video. It saved me haha.
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 !!!
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.
popeyepalmer: You saved me. It was the dingus! Why they do not mention that in the manual
is beyond belief. Thanks
Donnie Jobe: Thank you sir, this is an outstanding training video!
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!
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
spamboli: that did the trick! Thank you for making such a clear, concise, and
noBuzzkillin: You are very welcome my friend. Thanks for the kind feedback.. makes
it.worth the work.
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.
