To save time, I second the review written by Lind B. The pistol is terrific, but the disassembly and reassembly processes are difficult. I really suggest that if you buy this gun or any Mark III you watch the disassembly and reassembly video on the Ruger website. The reassembly video goes a bit fast, but you should watch it at least once before attempting to reassembly a Mark III. If you do not have the patience of a saint you might want to send the wife and kids to the movies or somewhere else so they don't have to hear you when you take on this challenge. Yes, it can be that difficult.
On the video the host will tell you that you need a small rubber hammer, a 1/4 inch dowl pin (4 to 6 inches should do it)(optional, but helps), and a paper clip. Yes, I said a paper clip and it will help you in pulling out the Mainspring Housing. Also, you will need the hammer! You will need it during both disassembly and reassembly. This is a very tight pistol.
In summary, I would give this pistol 5 stars for it's performance. It shoots very nicely as also stated by Lind B. However, I would give the disassembly and reassembly of this pistol 1 star. Overall, I will be nice and rate the pistol a 4 star only because it shots so beautifully. But, take a tranquilizer before you begin cleaning the pistol if you are short on patience.
