    Following the directions was not a problem -- the process was fine. The problem was that the parts were fused together incredibly tight. Lots of hammering and fidgeting.

    The first time I reassembled my MkIII 22/45 caused me minor consternation. I had to use a mallet to encourage marriage of barrel and frame. I used a mallet on my gun? Yup. I can't believe I hit my gun with a soft hammer. Good grief.

    I have a Mark III 22/45 5 1/2" fluted barrel and I promptly removed the magazine disconnect safety to not only improve the trigger but to also make if easier to field strip the gun for cleaning. By removing this "feature", your magazine will also drop free instead of you having to pull it out. You might want to consider doing this. I bought the part needed from a man in Canada who machines them. It is a quality part and does make a difference.

    They are built tight for a reason. Removing the barrel from the frame is way overkill for a standard cleaning session, btw.
    Yeah, you don't want to use a hammer. I use a non-marring "hammer" which has hard rubber on one side and a semi-clear yellow plastic on the other. This is what you want to use to remove the barrel or for any other gun work which requires a little force.

    I found a web site that offers a "Easy take down kit" for the Mark series. I have no idea if it works or what it involves but I will do a search to see it I can find more.

    Here is what I found. I have no idea how it works and if it is worth the money. I have found, as others have already said, you will get faster and it will seem easier
    with practice. Frank.

    They do ease up after a few times as others said.I don't know what's changed compared to the MKIIs but try detail stripping the frame.When your done putting it back together you'd swear you're ready for a strightjacket.

    WOW! This is a much better shooter than what I had experienced in trying my friend's Ruger (I don't know exactly which model he had, but it was very similar - same barrel length, but in stainless). Anyway.... my % of shots on target and overall precision has increased dramatically compared to the Sig Mosquito I traded for this gun. Trigger pull is light and smooth with almost no creep/slack to speak of. I was concerned that the sights might be off because of the hammering -- but they were spot on. I shot CCI Mini Mags - not a single FTE, FTF, or any other issue. I'm very pleased.

    The cleaning was much easier too. Still needed to tap with a mallet, but it's definitely getting easier.
    You should try out a volquartsen trigger! You will be shocked!

    Re: New Mark III Target - PAINFUL!!

    I have found the following website extremely helpful when having a a problem with the ruger mark III. I personally don't clean my mark after every shooting, but I do run a boresnake thru the barrel... http://guntalk-online.com/TroubleshootingPage.htm
