In my experience this always means that the hammer strut was out of place when the gun was reassembled.I just got my Ruger competition target out to fondle her after being stored for 1 year. I went to check to see that she was unloaded, and I cannot retract the bolt to look in the chamber...what is wrong ? help please...Harold
I will never forget the night I taught myself how to reassemble a Mark pistol. I invented swear words that even soldiers and sailors have never heard. Once I got it figured out though, no sweat.I like to have guys with Ruger MKs come by my table at the gunshows. Especiallty when they took one apart and have given up on trying to reassemble them.
