Gotta love those Mk1's. Yeah it can be a pita to reassemble and there are several videos showing the tricks such as this one starting @ 9:38I have a Ruger Mark 1 I took it apart to clean it many years ago. I got so mad trying to put it back together that after a few evenings I was ready to through it away. But I'm glad I didn't, I used it for my C&C permit, I shot 20 rounds and I could cover the holes with a Post-it note.
I bought my Mk1 Target Bull back in the '80's when we sold firearms at our family business and it is a tack driver. It will drop a buzzard from the sky, don't ask how I know that...lol. For years I used it for squirrel hunting. I had it drilled/tapped and a Redfield, from way back when they put out some really good optics, sits on top of it. There's a story behind the drilling/tapping but that's for another time.
