JohnnyOnTheSpot: Looks like 32 people from Ruger are not big fans of my video! Come on
Ruger... let me make a video for you! If the " thumbs down " folks are not
from Ruger, please feel free to let me know what you dislike, or what your
problem is, and I will try to help to the best of my ability. For the
record, I love my 22/45 and all my other Ruger firearms! Questions: just
barnmaster98: thankyou for this video, I just bought my mark iii and had it all
dissassembled to see if I really did need tools to dissassemble/reassemble,
well it took it all apart by hand but putting it back together I just
couldn't get the spring in. your video was the first one I clicked on
Barb Biffle Bennett: Thanks for the GREAT video. I just bought the same firearm and this was
super to help me get acquainted with it before I shoot it. Much BETTER than
anything from Ruger.
Adam Valdes: When i try and swing down the hammer to finish assembly sometimes it works
and sometimes the hammer pin just pops out and i gotta start over. I watch
the little pin every time and do it the same way but get mixed results.
chiefdog1019: Dude, Awesome video. This was the 3rd time I took apart my Mark 3 and the
first time I found your video. Your video was the best one I found, simple
and straight forward. Take down, cleaning and reassembly took all of about
10 minutes. Thanks for posting and sharing your video. Thumbs up here.
John Smiley: Great video - simple fast effective. Watched video and then was able to
assembly my 22/45 in just seconds. Thanks!
John Kuchera: FINALLY, someone who makes a straight to the point video.
Gosalukis: Just a quick note to thank you. Took my 22/45 apart for the first time to
clean, and couldn't get it back together correctly because of the issue
with the mainspring housing latch pin. After looking at several other
videos, and the Ruger manual (useless), I came across your video. You're
the only one that provided an easy method for making sure the pin is in the
right place during reassembly, and it worked great (after 2 hours of
frustration)! Thanks again!
pisipete: Followed your instructions my first time disassembling my new 22/45 & it
worked like a charm, very tight fit & needed lots of muscle but it worked.
My second time I used the Ruger instructions & the gun was inoperable after
multiple attempts of following the manual to a T. Came back to your vid &
was able to put it back together without issue. THANKS!!!
fourninesixbbc: Thanks. Worked great for me.
Patrick Hawkins: The directions that came with the gun from Ruger were very confusing. Your
video simplified the whole dis-assembly/assembly process. Thanks!
Kyle Bunnell: Well after trying that about 10 times it finally worked haha. That was my
first time breaking down my MkIII 22/45 for cleaning. This thing is a pain
on your fingers trying to put everything back in the right place. Great
shooter though so it kind of makes up for the outdated/overly complicated
design!! Nice vid!
mogyory1: Awesome video, thanks!
Nathan Sarsons: Hi , I liked your video. I have a problem with my 22/45, the hammer doesn't
drop when I pull the trigger? Any tips?
Pistol Pete Ammo: Just did it....like you said, a piece of cake! Johnny Buzz Kill Rocks...
Michael K: best 2.5 minutes ever...thanks
Robert Jacobo: Great video, however...most of us WILL need a rubber mallet to get the
barrel off AND back on. Have a wooden or non-marring dowel rod to tap out
the "pin" at the beginning of the process. Mine is just too tight to do
without tools. Ihave diss/re assembled it about 10 times now with
diffiiculty each time. Not because each step was difficult, but the barrel
will not simply slide off, and the holes do not align that easy. Also,
there is no indicator lines telling you when the barrl has been pushed back
on far enough to the rear. You make want to place marks yourself. Check

kenneth bunn: Thanks for the video. Best one I've seen on assembling & disassembling the
Nathan Sarsons: Ha! Backed the trigger over travel screw, it works now. Found it at
"troubleshooting the MK111" Great page!
Rbis1326: Very well done! I have been having much difficulty with the reassembly of
this firearm, although I love shooting it. Your presentation has made it
much less difficult, in fact, not difficult at all to reassemble... THANK
Jb hamilton: what happened to johnnybuzzkill?
Joe Guzman: Wow you made it very easy the first time i did that was in the early 1980s
it took me 45 minutes
YOHANN SCHNITZEL: Thank you sir. That was the clearest most straightforward video I've seen
in a long time.
Robert Jacobo: Oh, as far as dry firing/pulling the trigger, the firearm has a firing pin
stop which prevents the hammer from striking any part of the chamber. For
you old timers and young pups who were informed by the old timers, you can
buy snap caps or use plastic anchor bolts if you believe you will still
damage the firearm (do not remember the correct size but I believe they are
most often yellow in color),.
Steve Goulette: Very professional and very helpful. Thanks !
Pistol Pete Ammo: Just picked one up today.....and needless to say am a bit overwhelmed by
the "stories".... You make it as easy as scrambling eggs ! Thanks
brother.... you have some patience!
tommy galante: Thanks for the video I was thinking about getting one but seemed to
complicated to take down but after watching this I'm picking one up
Keith Melton: Thank you, well done.
Brady Tribble: Good video, thank you
HOLYHECKITSPAUL: Pulling down to release the bolt will NOT happen, its like its cemented in
there. Ive tried using a punch and hammer on the retaining pin on the top
Bruce A: i now know why ruger said "you should not strip your gun after each
shooting." it was a pain to get back together. my first mistake was going
to ruger.com. If ruger read all of your comments and prays, you could be
making the next set of videos.
Thanks. R/ Bruce
David Warren: Cant thank you enough.
Richard A Whitesel: Good job. Thanks.
Farmer Harrison: Finally, a Youtuber who actually rehearses his vid so that the final is
concise! Terrific execution -- no wasted words or wasted motion. Very
impressive. As for the fools who are complaining that you called the
magazine a "clip," ignore them. The distinction between "clip" and
"magazine" is of recent vintage (e.g., I have magazines on old rifles that
"clip" in, and are described in their manuals as "clips" not "magazines")
and the distinction seems to be used chiefly by desk warriors to attempt to
nag on the Internet. Actually hunters, law enforcement personnel, etc.
don't give a fig which word you use and know exactly what you mean when you
use either. One might as well complain that "magazine" is inaccurate
because it originally referred to a storage room in a fort or a boat. Geez.
Cheryl Waters: Great video, but *one question*: Won't dry firing before disassembling it
hurt the gun? I thought dry firing is bad for a .22 rimfire, so why would
it require dry firing before being disassembled?
Ron Mazzeo: Thank-you JonnyBuzzkill, very informative video...
Thomas Leary: JonnyBuzzkill. While I had to use far more force on my tight, new Ruger
III than you did, your technique worked! I was a doubter given the hours
of frustration with this particular firearm before I saw your video. Thank
you for the video, it was very helpful.
Since you asked for comments, I will give you one. Not everyone has a
compliant firearm as you used in your demonstration. I think that is why
some commented in an aggressive manner. At any rate, some viewers may be
frustrated when their new firearm requires more "encouragement" for the
tight parts to comply than your firearm in the video. I respectfully
suggest that you let the viewer know of those portions of the video where
the tight parts may need more force than is demonstrated in your video so
that the viewer does not become frustrated. I also suggest that you let
them know how to apply the greater force.
Thank you again for the video, and good luck to you.
Dan Elia: GREAT VIDEO Nobody that I have seen explains the step by step sequence
order especially at the end. Ruger has overbuilt this making it more
complicated than it should be! A friend of mine and I spent 3 hrs. last
night then another friend 2 hrs. this am...then I finally gave up and
brought it in... Dont think i'll be breaking this down in the future I give
you a lot of credit! Thanks Once Again!!
Kevin Arndt: thanks best 22/45 assembly video yet
fran kie: Good video, you were the only one that I have seen that mentioned the
webfish100: Great video! The best I've seen!
MC Yooper: Good 1 guy you got it! get out and shoot that.Mark 3 is best 22 pistol some
one needs too make mag extensions!
Oru Anna: You really made it easy to understand. Thank you.
Rich InTheUSA: Agree.. best video for putting the Ruger Mk III together again.
eric swenson: thanks for the video. i had a stuck bolt and that last part on the
reassembly was the trick to resetting something inside to getting the bolt
Gregg Frank: Best and fastest Ruger 22/45 breakdown video out here. Thank you! :)
mgarcia830310: Just got mine yesterday excellent video big help right to the point and
very informal . watched a lot of these videos and yours was the most
helpful thank you !!
michael schrader: thankyou mr busskill you rock best vid on this gun whish i found you long
time ago mike
aj cole: Nice video. I will bet you practiced that many times. Just for others sake,
some guns have quirks like hard sliding barrels. The truth about properly
setting the hammer lever in the main spring assembly is that a first timer
will not get it so easily. A common issue is reassembly yet the slide will
not pull back meaning the lever did not seat properly and to just try it
