Ruger MK III Takedown

So you have a Ruger MK III, and I am sure that you were told, just like I was that you NEVER had to clean it; or clean it only after it starts to jam.

Well I am here to tell you that while you can treat YOUR weapon like that, I am not going to. While I might not clean this super reliable pistol after 100 rounds, I do so every 500 rounds. There are a few tricks taking apart the Ruger MK III, hopefully after watching this video you won’t spend and where near as much time cursing your new .22 as I did. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for watching.

Supplies Needed:

  1. Rubber Mallet
  2. Paper Clip
  3. Scribe (Looks like a screw driver with a hook on the end)
  4. Delrin Rod (Non-Maring Plastic Rod, so you don’t scratch your gun)
    Wooden dowel works as well
  5. Empty Magazine
