That is how they work.... Rugers are tight and the simply require these tools. It is a bit old school.

A fit tight enough to require beating the bolt stop pin out pin is probably due to a slight misalignment of the bolt stop holes in the receiver and grip frame. You can use the bolt stop pin as an alignment tool by inserting in in the top of the receiver and tapping (with a nonmarring hammer) on the muzzle or end of the receiver, as appropriate, while pushing down on the bolt stop pin. (shown in the guntalk-onlie/service section).

The first time I field stripped and assembled a Ruger I had visions of a box of parts looking for a gunsmith. Ruger's instructions are exactly right if you know how to do the procedure. I repeated the procedure 3 times to ensure I understood how it came apart and went back together. Like most things, with a little practice, it isn't that hard.

Look at the bright side. If you have a Ruger that has a very tight grip frame-receiver fit, you keep it in like because it knows you will whale on it with a hammer when you get it home.

Following the directions that come with the piece, or a few moments with Bullseye57 if all else fails, is all you need...

Folks that avoid a Ruger MK series .22 because they are afraid to tackle the field stripping process are missing out one terrific rimfire...
