Hey, Jon, Can ya knock a barrel of a model 70 for me? By appointment, service while ya wait?
Those magazines look like they should go in backwards - I've had many new to them shooters get confused when trying to load them.Wife recently got a new Ruger Mark III. [disclaimer] While I wasn't looking she attempted to seat an empty magazine backwards. T'was done so well that no one but the Ruger CS could get it out again. The pistol is back not too much the worse for wear. I have always said that experience is a series of non-fatal mistakes. Pistols are finely machined contraptions that can confound even the most experienced handlers proving again that nothing is fool proof.
This is correct. If you feel a slight springy-resistance when the housing is within about 1/4" of being flush, then you are good to press the housing in place, and lock the housing lever.You must learn the angle of the dangle. Make sure that the hammer strut hits the spring properly....
Tried it and it didn't work. I didn't want to damage things so I actually went to a gunsmith for this one. Its my kid's pistol... Can't mess it up too bad.
LMAOIt's broke. Time to get another one. I'll gladly dispose of that broken one for you.
