If you read and follow the instructions, you won't have a problem.

It isn't the nightmare some would have you believe it is.

The one and only time I was requested to detail strip one for an acquaintance it was a nightmare but I was winging it without guidance. I ultimately persevered in reassembling it just before dashing the whole mess against a wall.
Don't allow concerns over disassembly discourage you from enjoying one of the classic .22 automatic pistols of all times. Besides, the design doesn't require complete disassembly very often at all. The pistol may be properly maintained without it.

While they aren't as easy to disassemble and reassemble as other guns. If you read and follow the instructions, you'll be fine.

Have YouTube and a rubber mallet handy and the disassembly and reassembly will go smooth. The Ruger Mark II and III is a great pistol and a lot of fun to shoot.

It is tricky the first few times but don't let te reassembly scare you away.

No. Refer to the manual and hold your mouth just right and you'll be able to reassemble your MarkIII. These are great pistols.

Pain, but worth it. Personally, I'd see if you can find a lightly used Mark II. IMHO a better pistol.
