MkII -- Couldn't Resist



Log in to see fewer ads
Couldn't resist. Saw a nearly pristine 1982 (?) 6" MkII in my LGS today....it has joined my recently purchased 1999 MKII. And since I'm new to the Mks, I'm eager to brag I did my first successful field strip today. It isn't nearly as bad as I've heard. But, it was made easy for me by the info here and online. The little tricks on hammer positioning were key.

Congratulations on your MKII pistols, they are the best series of the Ruger semi-auto pistols IMO. A fair amount of complaining is done on forums about how difficult these pistols are to strip down for cleaning, but with a little patience and savy, they aren't that bad at all.

I took mine apart today, and re assembled it without the instructions, just to see if I could. It went back together the first try. I need to get to the range and shoot it again, but I have the allergy crud. :-(

Have a blessed day,

Leon

Tnx Wproct and Outbuilding for the replies. I really like the triggers on both of my MkIIs. I'm interested in getting a MkIV but read about the triggers needing work or adding a VQ kit. I'll keep thinking on that because these MKIIs are really that nice....not sure I could do better (now that I can take them apart) Hope you feel better soon Outbuilding.

Congrats on your score!until recently, My first and long time only Mark series pistol was a 6 inch Mark ll . Less than pristine, but a great shooter and d&t . While i still find reassembly daunting, i have my own work around for cleaning, which involve a large can of Gunscrubber Spray and Hornady Dri Lube spray

Recently good fortune allowed me to acquire both a Government model and a Slab sided Competition Target Model. While the stock triggers seemed fine to me, it was only after shooting the slab side , which already had the VQ trigger , etc that i learned that this modification is fantastic.

So now im watching all the trigger youtubes , until i can figure out how to diy it myself. It seems well worth the agony

Tnx TooMany! I'm doing the same as you--watching the trigger upgrade videos. A litle off topic, but how do you like the Competition Slabside? I am considering the MkIV Target Stainless or Competition as a Xmas gift. I'm leaning toward the Target at the moment. Thoughts? That scope looks like fun! Guess an advantage of the MKIV is they come DT.

Congrats...I also quickly figure out how to hold my tongue (hammer strut positioning) and since, upper/lower re-assemblies of the Standards, MkIs, MkIIs have been Non-Issues!!

Any pics of that New MkII 6"!?!

Wow, very nice Toomany. I watched the CQ video--seemed pretty straightforward work. I'm no gunsmith but have built a few ARs and could probably get thru a VQ install. :-) If I get the MKIV (and I think I will) I'll probably go with the OEm trigger for a while ten try the VQ...seems like they are highly regarded.

Bob,

That MKII Standard 6" looks as great as your 4.75"...Very Nice!

FWIW, found THIS helps to protect the exterior blued finish from dirt, moisture and fingerprints and really brings out the shine in a nice blued finish!

Ted

Tnx Ted. Both of 'em really have nice triggers. I'll give the Renaissance Wax a try. I've been hearing a lot about it. Bob
