View Full Version : Ruger Mk2 target front sight failure

My wife decided to go to the range with me today (Yay) and she was shooting my Ruger Mk2 target when the front sight blade flew off. The cross pin that holds the blade into the sight base sheared off! Fortunately we found the blade. Really surprised at the failure of the pin. It isn't like there is a huge recoil impulse through the gun to cause the failure. Now to find a punch tiny enough to push the broken sections out (3) and the pin to go back in!

interesting, the pin must be damaged from something else, cuz lets face it, the recoil wont do that to it on a .22lr. Go contact ruger and see if they'll fix it for you, i'm not sure how their warranty is like. BTW I miss my ruger Mk2. Great little gun.
