No fun!

Well I got less that 75 rounds through the gun and it broke. I shot the CCI Mini-Mag 22LR copper plated round nose bullets. The hammer pivot pin (part # 44) worked loose and the bolt wouldn't return completely and chamber a round properly.

My gun is the target model, on the models with the removable grips this couldn't/wouldn't happen as this part is covered by the grip.



So its off to the gun shop tomorrow and have them or Ruger check it out.

True, but only mods to the lower. The conversions all replace the upper slide so any sight mods would be different.

And if the need for the feel of the trigger is so important wouldn't dry firing be just as effective?

Anyway, my original question remains. Does anyone have experience with this firearm? If someone thinks the conversions are better that great, I just curious about this firearm.

Dude, they aren't that hard to fix on your own. If the only problem is just that the pin worked its way out, google how to take apart a 22/45 and you will find a pictorial walk through that will let you do it on your own in about 20 minutes.

Saw Ruger's video on disassembly and re-assembly. They didn't get into the pins and only made reference that they should all be intact. It's a new gun so I'll let the gun smiths look at it. I have little to no experience, although I'm sure I could get it back to where it belongs. The problem is why did it come loose to begin with?

This must be a fluke. I have a Mark one thats 43 years old and works great. I have only ever heard good things about these guns, and Ruger is notorious for their customer service, they will definitely make this right.

The new Ruger MK III pistols now are more complicated inside with all the new junk in them. I wouldn't own one myself.

Have a MK II that I bought new almost 20 years ago, and I love it.

I own a couple 22/45's and have had nothing but precision tack driver operation. Turning one into a custom soon with a Tac Sol barrel and VQ trigger. I like them better than the Browning Buckmark. My only complaint is the narrow grip, solved with 1911 style inserts. Good luck.

I love my 22 rim fires but I have doing the 17 Mach 2 Conversions and the round hits so much harder than the 22 LR. Easy conversion for the 10/22 receivers!

I picked up another Mossberg 152 Saturday. This one was the 'early' model, made between '47-'55, because it has a wooden forend on the stock. The one at top is the later version, with the plastic forend, made '55-'57. These forends folded down to make a sort of vertical grip or rest. The scopes are Mossberg scopes that are correct for this model. Mossberg came out with this model to cash in on the postwar popularity of the M1 Carbine. They are only barely visible, but they came with a military-style web sling,too.

It ain't that bigga deal... Just the loaded chamber indicator and the magazine disconnect from what I can tell. I could live without either and it might even shoot nicer without that disconnect but I don't think they make it a worse gun.

The gun shop fixed it. I did find the field strip and the complete breakdown of the gun online. I feel confident of the field strip, removal of barrel for cleaning. The other stuff, I'll have to study more
