You are not kidding, the LC9 and Glock are so familiar to me now I could do it blind folded.

They are.....I guess I would say unique....to say the least.....but after you figure it out it really is not that bad....at least I don't have that big of a problem with it.

I don't recall the name of it, but someone makes a modification for the Ruger Mark series to make them much easier to take down and clean. My Mark III Hunter probably has 600 rounds through it, and I've never taken it down, but there are some pretty good youtube videos showing the procedure. I'm waiting for a day when I'm completely frustrated about all kinds of other stuff, because I'm pretty sure taking down the Ruger will ruin a good day!

Also, a magazine loader can make it much easier to go through box after box of .22LR.

Congrats, nice gun.

Take down is easy. Putting it back together...

Actually it's not bad if you follow along with one of the YouTube videos the first time or two.

Has anyone ever fired an Henri Pieper revolver rifle? They were used by the Mexican Army in the 1890s.

Agreed, take down it the easy part.
Easier to put back together with the Bushing mod as you no longer need to mess with the trigger to get the hammer where you need it for reassembly.

I completely field strip mine every other time I shoot and run a boresnake through it after every time out.

While it's not like field stripping a Glock it isn't bad once you've done it a few times.

No, I've done worse. I think the worst part is the in and out with the mag to reset the hammer (firing block?), what ever it's called.

Here's a vid of the MK3 and my second time breaking it down and reassembling it.

Call me crazy but I've owned multiple Ruger MK IIs

over the years and I have NEVER had the need to take them apart. Just squirt some carb cleaner through the action if it gets really gummed up for godssakes. Usually good old Hoppes #9 and a toothbrush does just fine.

That's my routine. I love the gun but I'm afraid I won't anymore when I have it in pieces all over the kitchen table!

The MK 3 is a bear to reassemble at first but with a little practice it gets easier. Worth the trouble for a fine piece.

Yeah, and I'm one of those nut jobs who cleans everything after each use. It's my little OCD complex.

One another note. Thought I'd throw up a photo of something else that I shot recently, disassembled, cleaned and put back together till the next time.

I have an FN FAL, an AR15, and always wanted an AK but dragged my feet. I was lucky enough to purchase all the parts to build one right before the price gouging and craziness of mid-December.

Have any of you guys assembled an AK? I don't have a riveting tool and can't justify buying them for one build. It will be my only AK so a screw build is out of the question.
