What ever Ruger's intent vis-a-vis field stripping; if you end up replacing trigger, hammer, sear, extractor, firing pin & removing the LCI & magazine interlock, you'll be an expert Mark III repairman once you figure out how to easily reinstall the mainspring housing. But a third hand would really ...

Mine still requires a blow to take it apart. I only detail clean every 2000+ rounds so it does not happen very often. And since 22 ammo is scarce I have not been shooting it as often as I did. Something about taking a hammer to to a gun to disassemble it makes some cringe. :D Or is it having a gun ...

Love the gun, very accurate, but was compelled to do the enhancements with bolt tune-up, LCI remove, new sear and hammer, remove the magazines PITA feature. We all know what fun that can be, even with the very best tutorials and youtube...
