That is true. I actually got mine used for a song because the PO broke it down and couldn't put it back together again. It sat for YEARS and then I got a hold of it. I had a gunsmith reassemble it because at the time I wasn't sure if it was missing parts etc and its been nonstop plink plink ever since!

So what do you feed it for trouble-free shooting?

My gsg eats federal champion bulk from gander mtn really well. After a good polish and lube job it runs greats. Winchester 555 bulk didn't feed worth shit.

Super fun gun!!

Grabbed this guy in the right place at the right time:


It's a Mossberg 46M(a) which makes it post war '45-'47. It was missing the rear sight aperture and the buttplate is broken, so it seems to be a real piece of shit...

I ordered the aperture today and I will try to find the rear sling mount and buttplate at the next funshow in March.

I found the secret is not to take it apart. I have a mark1 that I would guess has at least 20,000 rounds thru it.I scrub out the barrel and clean the bolt face and it goes bang every pull of the trigger.

the Ruger MK3's go back together really easy once you lose the mag disconnect , all it takes is one little bushing . The the gun will fire without a mag in it and assembly is easy peasy without having to insert mag pull trigger tip gun up then down blah blah blah .

Yea!

Get the Clark Bushing. Much easier after that. No messing mag in, mag out BS. For the mark 3 also get the LCI filler. So much prettier after.

Yeah, you're right. That thing is a real POS. I'll take it off your hands so you can move on!

Just about anything that is standard vel. or better and copper plated I have have good luck with. Even down to the cheapie white box "dyanpoint" crap. I have not notices any real better groups with the different ammo...but lately I have not been doing that...just poping plates with it from a new black hawk 1911 holster.

Yeah, I mean look at the front sight on the thing. It's like a little Swiss army knife with 4 different front sight posts...

I'll probably pull the sights and throw them in the trash...

The prior owner couldn't get it to shoot very well... without the rear sight aperture.


You can see the round post aperture, the next in line is a round topped post, the third is "up"in the sight- a skinny short post, and then the fourth is a "fat" short post.

Here the "crappy" rear sight


I may try to make or buy an adjustable aperture for it at some point. And I will probably shell out the $22 for a scope mount JIC...

Here's a funny take on the development: http://drfrankenruger.com/legend_of_william_ruger

Here's a product that allows removal of bolt without further disassembly: http://majesticarms.com/id10.html


I've seen and used a MK III with the majestic kit and it works well if you need to remove the bolt for cleaning (mine gets sluggish after 1000 rounds of bulk ammo). I intend to order one soon, probably about the same time that I go to a tensioned barrel.

gsgpro.com has a nice recoil spring and full length steel guide rod which helps my gsg run better. I also pulled out the mag saftey. Just drop the main spring housing and pull out the little spring and arm. Takes a whole 2 min.

Be sure to field strip it and clean out all the nasty white grease. Also, watch what lube you use on the slide. I tried some different grease Friday and it thickened up in the cold weather and the slide wouldnt cycle fast enough.

These suckers are super fun to shoot. My only gripes are the shitty sights and the price of extra mags. I may pick up another for my wife

It was there and I liked the feel. That's really about it. I like the feel even more now that I've ran some rounds through it.

gripes: ambi saftey... I can't actuate it with my left thumb. I'm not a leftie so no big deal.
grips: hard plastic. Eh... no biggie. new grips or grow a callous.
