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?
kenneth bunn: Thanks for the video. Best one I've seen on assembling & disassembling the
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!
Kevin Arndt: thanks best 22/45 assembly video yet
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!!
fran kie: Good video, you were the only one that I have seen that mentioned the
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
David Warren: Cant thank you enough.
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
Ron Mazzeo: Thank-you JonnyBuzzkill, very informative video...
Richard A Whitesel: Good job. Thanks.
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.
webfish100: Great video! The best I've seen!
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.
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),.
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
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
Gregg Frank: Best and fastest Ruger 22/45 breakdown video out here. Thank you! :)
michael schrader: thankyou mr busskill you rock best vid on this gun whish i found you long
time ago mike
Oru Anna: You really made it easy to understand. Thank you.
MrJikman: Wish most gun videos are concise and to the point like yours. Thanks.
Rich InTheUSA: Agree.. best video for putting the Ruger Mk III together again.
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

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 !!
implodinggoat: Good vid; but I don't know how you got that pin to go in and out so
easily. Mine fought me tooth and nail to get in and out.
It went most of the way relatively easily; but then it got hung up on the
bolt at the point where just a little bit of the indicator bump was showing
out the top of the barrel. Once I got it to that point I had to fight it.
Could never get it to go in or out in one motion like you did.
Jeff S: Good assembly. Got a question though...Ruger assembly instructions has two
extra steps before closing the spring housing. 1) making sure the hammer is
in the full forward position. 2) before closing the spring assembly all the
way, remove the magazine. So are those two steps not needed?
bigrebone: much obliged.
elcoslic: Hey man whats up idk if i commented before but i just wanted to say thanks
for this vid it sure helpd me out when i picked up my mark3 like u said
people do make seem freakin impossible to do but its not.i added this vid
to my playlist for reference thanks
MyHollowpoint: Best vid I've seen so far. Need to watch it a dozen times or so :)
mjpuopolo: Thanks Buzzkill, I spent an hour last night trying to get my 22/45 MK III
back together. There is a small bit thats different with the new 22/45, I
had to drop the mag to get the mainspring housing back in. You made it so
easy I dont even know what I was doing wrong any more. Thanks for the great
JonnyBuzzkill: On what grounds is my video misleading? What is the factual evidence that
you have that leads you to believe that I “ buffed “ any of the parts of my
Ruger? If I was a lawyered up jerk off, I would sue you for defamation of
character and slander. You sir are babbling non factual, hypothetically
assumed and derogatory slander that is completely unfounded… you sir are
the one who is misleading! Read some of the 270 previous comments.
alex karnitsky: dry firing a rimfire and calling a magazine a clip?
Jim Wardlow: Thx you have been a great help ..
mrchucknorrisninja: Thanks alot man. I was stuck for a while. Good video.
JonnyBuzzkill: Given all the great feedback I have received, I can’t figure out how this
video has 11 thumbs down. If you are a thumbs down kind of person, please
at least leave a comment on what you didn’t like, as this might be helpful
in the future.
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
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.
wvillewhippoorwill: Wow, thanks for making this so easy! Ruger should hire you to rewrite their
sooporman: This is THE instructional video on the topic.
tanalee09: BTW: It looks like plenty of shooters never or hardly ever clean their
guns. How can you get away with that?
ColorOfEnergy29A: Hey man, you were asking about the thumbs down? I didn't thumbs down you,
because it's is helpful. But my target model doesn't work the way you
reassemble the gun. By the manual, you insert the mag before inserting the
bolt stop. And when you insert the bolt stop the gun should be pointed at
the floor. If I don't do this exactly as the manual says, the bolt will not
retract fully. Also the mag is supposed to be removed before closing the
latch completely, mine will not close with it in.
MrSabotSlug: It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. It took me couple of tries
to get it back together. Your vid really helped me out. I have fired almost
1/2 of a 550 box of ammo. The 22/45 is a sweet shooting gun. It's gonna
save me a lot of money at the range. Thanks again for your short, easy to
follow vid. My wife and I are gonna post some shooting vids with the 22/45
JonnyBuzzkill: @zippy5081 Zippy - please repost your comment... I read it on your channel.
Please post it here. thanks for poss/feedback man!
SwingBlade: This guide was very straight-forward and helpful. I was having trouble with
mine after having just gotten it and this guide helped me figure out where
the issue lay (accidentally loosened the bolt stop). I had no issues
removing/replacing my bolt stop, nor with any other steps. Thanks a lot man!
Thorbob57: i found this video funny because you had to buff all your parts before you
did this video, kinda misleading although it covers some of the basics.
Good luck to the novices.
Jim Chambers: I was swearing at it for quite some time; never would've thought to put the
magazine in! Thanks for the help.
crystalpeacebear1985: well I got everything out cleaned and back in until the last piece I got
pin back into the bolt but when go to hinge it back into the grip. the pin
pops back enough that you can't finish the reassemble.
Mr12141972: Wow , I have done mine the hard way for a decade . Thank you for a awesome
video. Truly a must see for all Ruger enthusiasts .......
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?
