hencape: Hi Johnny
I removed the bolt release mechanism on my Mark III and my bolt won't slide out. Any ideas?
JonnyBuzzkill: Glad I could help! A clean gun makes for safe and happy shooting! P.s the bore snake is key!
Bob Gill: Excellent! Brought new 22/45 home this afternoon, and watched your video. Took it apart with no tools exactly like you did, rem oiled it and ran boresnake through it, followed your reassembly directions, and reassembled on the first try. Took no longer than your video, and it worked perfectly! Removing and reinstalling the magazine seems to be key! Thanks much!
TheGamerguy6: you striped that thing at super human speed
usmcdoc14: Wow, people were nuking the hell out of this! I though "there is no way this little gun is that complicated" Thanks !
ShotgunShooter666: Easier said than done. Holy hell, this doesnt want to come out. Hand is being poked to hell by corners of the gun.
Jb hamilton: thank you so much!!!!! you made this so damn easy. you should get paid for this!!
Christian E: Even easier with an aftermarket hammer bushing. These also make your mags launch out when you hit the mag release button.
Eyereole: Straightforward, concise, informative. Very well done!
spstr883r: Thanks for simplifying the breakdown and reassembling of the 22 / 45. A great shooting gun but hatted to clean it after every use until now.
shackletainment: great video. I've been dreading field stripping my 22/45 but this video made it very easy.
Dmitri Chebotarov: This is my 'go-to' video every time I need to clean my 22/45. Works every time! Thanks.
Weencie Rants: How the dump do you get the upper receiver off?
maggotball: WHY in the name of all that is holy does every other guide make that so difficult, and NOBODY mentions to hold the trigger when you put the damn thing back together!
coastalplayer: Thank you ,thank you, dude thank you.
sooporman: This is THE instructional video on the topic.
B Farley: you make it easy thanks
Leonteos: Very cool explanation, thanks bro!
Eddie Inzauto: The Ruger MkIII series handguns, including the 22/45, have a firing pin stop (a heavy steel pin) that blocks the firing pin from moving forward enough to peen the chamber. That allows them to be dry fired without fear of damaging the gun. The manual instructs owners to dry fire as part of the disassembly process.
Fran Breban: i followed this instruction after being horrified watching a ruger video using a screwdriver, hammer and hitting it on a table. first time it was a bit tight, but if you use the right leverage it comes right apart.
alex karnitsky: dry firing a rimfire and calling a magazine a clip?
Dillon Johnson: I have owned my 22/45 for 3 years and still to this day have to use a rubber mallet to get the barrel off and back on?? Just has never loosened up I guess.
Tim Stephens: Dude - you solved a bunch of issues and helped bring a smile to the face to my otherwise disappointed 10 year old son. You made a huge difference - thanks for taking the time to explain what Ruger could not,
oxbcat: For many people (myself included) the pin does't exactly want to go back in so easily. And this can cause frustration.
g-dubz: Pull the bolt back while releasing the bolt
100EnderKid: Thank You , You have a natural talent for explaining things. I think alot of people like myself have found your video to be so unbelievably awesome.
Kakka Carrot Cake: I think I broke my gun. I did everything in the video and put it back together and now the bolt wont pull back :(
bearman000ify: Thanks a million! My gun is unbelievably tight, took alot of muscle to take apart. Also my bolt release is still very stiff, even after oiling. Anyone have have a suggestion?
EDCMANix2: your a gentleman and a scholar.
Jim Wardlow: Thx you have been a great help ..
Jim Chambers: I was swearing at it for quite some time; never would've thought to put the magazine in! Thanks for the help.
beelikestowatch: well done video, you do an excellent job explaining the procedure, without all the haves and have nots
Bryan Kelley: Thank you!! Extremely helpful. It was the part about rotating the pistol 90° so it's pointing toward the ceiling and pulling the trigger at the same time that really helped me replacing the back spring assembly. Spent about 3 hours last night and another hour this evening.
tanalee09: BTW: It looks like plenty of shooters never or hardly ever clean their guns. How can you get away with that?
tanalee09: I blow you kisses every time I clean my Hunter. wonderful vid!
antifoundational: Also, couldn't get my mainhouse bolt assembly to fold down. Had to remove it, the bolt, and then push my hammer down (again). Thanks to this video and Brandon401401's I got it!
antifoundational: Thanks that did help! Couldn't get the bolt out, hammer was up and had the hit the top.
hombresg33: Great video saved me from chucking the gun away.
H.H. Timepassages: Very nice indeed!
brett328: Just did this to my 22/45 MKIII threaded barrel w/o sights. Haven't shot mine yet, just picked it up last week, and wanted to change out the magazine disconnect before going to the range. I actually bought a rubberized dead blow hammer expecting difficulty with the receiver/barrel issue. Waste of money, came apart went back together with ease. Hammer going back to Lowes. Excellent vid, enabled a noob to cruise thru the operation with ease. People make waaayyy too big a deal out of this.
Penelope Anne Creighton: Do these same instructions work for the Mark II? Mine came apart easy enough (no mallet needed, sorry guys), but getting it back together gave me some problems with the hammer assembly. Thank you.
MyHollowpoint: Best vid I've seen so far. Need to watch it a dozen times or so :)
tanalee09: Woot! I cleaned my gun after finally getting to shoot it today. It was exactly this easy. Great vid! My condolences to you who purchased guns with parts that are too tight to do it like this. :(
ConfusedRhino: Thank you so much. Really provided an easy method, my ruger was so dirty because I did not know how to disassemble it now it is clean.
tanalee09: I'm a 62-yr-old female. I just bought my first gun because of all the new laws getting passed. I picked up my permit and my new RUGER Mark IIITarget Hunter today. I'm PRAYing it will be this easy to dissemble. Great vid!
jignamssorg: I watched the video; easy for dawg, but not for my piece. I ended up cutting my hand on the mag well TRYING to remove the barrel and as of this writing, still NOT off! You must have practiced an awful lot to make your video. The barrel DOES NOT come off as easily as you show in the video!
MrBLACKMAMBA305: Great instructional vid bro
WholeCosmos: Guns are like women, Tighter is better than looser. Maintaining them may be more of a pain but boy do they preform where it counts.
