Ruger 22/45 Mark III 22LR 5.5" Blued ADJUSTABLE SIGHTS 
by John W
Date Added: Sunday 29 April, 2012
I just purchased this gun about two months ago. My hats off to Buds for their typical outstanding service. I have put over 1000 rounds through this gun since I bought it. The gun shoots great, I can get 1.5" groups at 10 yards over and over.
What I am not happy about is disassembly and re-assembly of this gun. You have to strike this gun repeatedly with a mallet to take it apart and to put it back together again. To me, this is like buying a new car and finding out that you have to take a crow bar and pry the hood open to check the oil. It just doesn't seem like something that you should have to do to a brand new firearm.
Today, after taking the gun to the range, I brought it home, stripped it down and cleaned it, then struggled for over an hour to get it put back together again. I just couldn't get the pin to line up properly. This happens after I have successfully stripped and reassembled the gun a dozen times or so. Finally I turned the gun upside down on a block of wood and try to pound the pin in with a hammer and guess what? The rear sight breaks on me. Is it my fault? I guess so. I guess I am going to have to take the gun to a gunsmith now to get the sight fixed, and maybe he can do something to make the gun easier to strip and reassemble.
I know this is a very popular gun and in some ways I can see why. I just don't understand how this design has withstood the test of time after so many people have voiced these same comments about the gun.
