Tintop,put the thing back together and remove plastic grips. Spray brake-clean(WITH PLASTIC STRAW) down around firing pin,slide and inside of mags.Blow dry with compressed air. Clean and lube overall gun(slide,rails,trigger ass`y. mags )with Breakfree or comparible product and be done. Competely strip... you ask for trouble. My MK1 has many thous. rds through it with many more to go. Wished rest of guns were simple as this one.
By "completely strip" do you mean following the Ruger instructions to remove the pin and locking mechanism and so forth, or do you mean going beyond that?
I spoke with the tech at Ruger. He said to just do the spray and lube thing without dismantling anything routinely, but to occasionally do the lock removal procedure.
