Default Field stripped my new 22/45 and installed magazine disconnect

i just picked up my first handgun from turners last week, the ruger mark III 22/45 and finally had a chance to fieldstrip it and remove the factory grease and install the bushing disconnect for the magazine.

i ordered the bushing from tandemkross and replacement was easy. they include instructions and a link to a video to walk you thru the install process. they machined the bushing specifically for this purpose;

the magazine disconnect is awesome! the magazine drops right out like it should. best 9.99 i spent.

i also have heard horror stories about how hard it is to field strip. it was a little tough to get apart but i didn't have to use a rubber mallet like some have suggested. i used my hands and a banging on the carpet to detach the barrel. now it's a piece of cake.

here's the best two videos where i learned to field strip it and put it back together;

this kid gives the best instructions i've seen. only 121 views but simple and to the point. i also used banging one time on my carpet floor to remove the barrel as he suggested and it worked well (i didn't want to use a rubber mallet or hammer anything). here's his;

this one is good too. he's got the best advice for getting the mainspring housing latch back in. basically hold in the trigger. i struggled with that one until i watched his and he had the same problem until he read the instructions and it said to hold the trigger;

can't wait to get out and shoot it.

I just bought one too. Replaced the disconnect with a mkII hammer bushing right after I shot it the first time. I had to use a mallet to get the bolt pin out, and the pin holding the mag disconnect took a very firm blow to get out. After pulling the line the first time, they go in ans out easily.

The replacement hammer bushing makes the MKIII 22/45 one sweet pistola...

Not to be the PC police, but a lot of these guys use bad terminology for certain parts ie: hammer, hammer strut, mainspring housing, etc. Even the guy in my favorite vid calls the magazine a clip at least once.

Here's my personal favorite. Quick, simple, straight to the point

This is one of my new favorite threads. The ruger 22/45 has the hardest takedown out of all my firearms.

i hope one day the field strip of mine will be that easy, but there is no way that little thumb push to remove the barrel on mine is happening anytime soon

I know this is getting technical, however; the magazine disconnect is what you removed from your MkIII not the other way around.

Also, a MkII bushing does the same thing for less $.
