Mk III failure to fire



Log in to see fewer ads
This is my first post on this forum so I would like to say thanks to all of the members for a wealth of knowledge. I have had a Mk III 22/45 for quite a few years and enjoyed shooting it until about three years ago when it failed to fire at a bowling pin match. I set it aside until recently since I had other projects going but finally decided to fix it which is how I ended up finding and joining this forum. I read as much as I could and first replaced the mag disconnect with a Sam Lam bushing still didn't work. Then ran across a post about firing pins sticking from the original factory lubricants stripped the pistol down for a thorough cleaning giving extra attention to the bolt. Sure enough fixed it my bad for not giving it a good cleaning as new but I've never run into that before. Again thanks to all the knowledgeable posters here.

Welcome to the forum and glad to hear you got your Ruger up and running again. I took my Mark III .22/45 apart and cleaned the firing pin with springs last weekend. They are a fun gun to shoot.
