I find that my Mark II slabside requires cleaning when the action gets so cruddy that the bolt goes incompletely into battery and I begin to get misfires/light hits. Since this only requires cleaning of the inside of the action and the bolt, the Speed Strip Kit from Majestik Arms (http://www.majesticarms.com/id10.html) is a handy thing to have. The pistol can be partially disassembled and cleaned without going through the hassle of separating the grip and action.
The kit requires that you change the hammer and strut, so you have to be a little familiar with this procedure, but I found all the step-by-step instructions that I needed on the web.
One of my greatest concerns is the wear on the lug that joins the forward part of the grip group to the action that occurs with each breakdown, so I am happy to avoid this for both this reason and the fact that I have to really think about that hammer strut every time I do a complete breakdown.
Regards, DocAitch

I have a 22/45 and think for all the years that these pistoles been sold Ruger could have made the job less of a pain

I am new here... my name is Don, I live in West Central Florida, and I love my .22's. I have a number of .22's made by Ruger including MK I, II, III, and 22/45. I hated to take mine apart also until I discovered Majestic Arms. They sell a stripper kit that allows you to remove the bolt and clean the barrel in no time. To do a complete thorough cleaning you still need to completely disassemble the gun, but to just clean the barrel at the range or whenever this speed strip kit works well....

Once you learn to pay attention to where the hammer strut is when reassembling it's a breeze. I just throw a paper clip in the case to release the mainspring housing. I break down and clean about every 500 rounds, that's about 3 trips to the range. My wife timed me once for fun and it was 25 seconds to dissassemble and reassemble. You just need to remember to peek inside and check that the hammer strut is engaging the depression in the mainspring housing as it closes. Just adjust the position of the pistol in your hands so that happens. That's the "magic trick". Do it a few times and it stops being a big deal. People who never do it never learn it. But isn't that the nature of shooting?

That seems to be quite a time saver, after the initial installation is completed. I may have to try one of those.

The first time I took down my MKI had had a whole lot of trouble to say the least. Did a web search and found the trick. Not hard now that I know how it works and how to hold it when I put it back together.

I see no reason to do it all the time though, maybe after several thousand rounds or if you are having problems. Other than that, take some spray cleaner in a can and spray it out....might want to take off the grips first if you have wood ones like mine though.

I am sorry that I never got around to posting some pic's on this post. But the Ruger MkI & MkII are so simple to take apart and put back together, you just need to know what to do. It is like opening a door. If you dont turn the knob, you will kave a hell of a time getting it to open. And if it is locked you will need a key.
So when it comes down to it, the Hammer strut is the key to the Ruger pistol.
If you are still having trouble with your pistol, just PM me with your phone number and I will call you. It will take me less then 5 min.s for me to show you how to open the door. :wink:
