Ruger Mark II Assembly

On August 19, 2012, I posted a YouTube video about how to assemble a very popular yet PITA (pain in the arse) to assemble gun. That is none other than what may be the most difficult pistol to assemble that I have ever owned - the Ruger Mark II.  Evidently, I am not the only one who thinks it to be a PITA to put back together; there have been 66,141 views of that video since it was first posted 11 years and about 5 months ago. In fact so many folks have complained about said assembly difficulty that I strongly believe that: Even had all the kings horses and all the kings men been adept enough to have put Humpty Dumpty back together again - I think they would have trouble doing the same with the Ruger Mark II. 
I am amazed, I am still receiving requests for info about how to get it put back together again, receiving a request for help just a few days ago. I replied and hope my reply was the info the guy needed to get his together again. It's a little uncomfortable for me to give anyone instructions when I do not have the gun in hand and mine are secured away from my home right now. So, I looked at the part of the video about securing the bolt stop pin which is the part he could not get back held in place properly - that, by the way, seems to be one of the most common problems with this pistol. I told him to watch that part of the video and let me know if it works when he tries it. Keeping my fingers crossed.
If you are having problems with getting your Ruger Mark II assembled try following the instructions in my video:

So I Asked My Magic 8 Ball...

 "Magic 8 Ball will it be a good year for me"? The answer was most pleasing as it answered this:

"It is certain".

I am happy is said so and thus has assured me of a good year to come. Do you think that to be nutty, crazy, delusional or somehow unstable of me? If so, let me say this: If someone can believe that he can have his penis cut off and suddenly be transformed into a woman and not be considered (heck - not actually be) delusional; then I can believe that my Magic 8 Ball is infallible, especially when it gives me the answers for which I am hoping! That most certainly must be better than me cutting off my own pee-pee.
Proof already beginning to show itself: just felt a fart coming on and as soon as I felt it coming on I wondered wet or dry and should I go sit on the throne. Yes I did run to it and good for me because, IMO, it was much the same consistency of Hershey's syrup (no offense to Hershey's Co. or Hershey's syrup).😂 So you see, my Magic 8 Ball was right. Please note, you may or may not achieve the same amount of satisfaction from your own or from another person's Magic 8 Ball.

Happy New Year,
