Yes i know there are many threads adressing mkiii problems and yes i did search through them but none of them seemed to have the same problem i am having. Today i purchased a new ruger mkiii target. When i got home i field striped it to get an idea of how the gun works then i put it back together. First the main spring housing would not close but it finally did and then the bolt wouldnt cycle all the way it would only open up maybe half way. I restriped it and put it back together following ruger's directions and all the youtube videos i could find. Now not only will the bolt not cycle fully but the mainspring wont come out either. I have tried it with a mag in and a mag out i have tried pulling the trigger to get the hammer to move and nothing happens. Any ideas? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Also i know im not the strongest person but the main spring wont even come out if i try to pry it with a screw driver. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
