    It's not that difficult to make it gone.

    Ruger seems to have always been very worried regarding liability, hence their large and very unattractive "billboard" warnings roll marked into their firearms.

    The procedure to remove the undesireable magazine disconnect feature in your Mark III 22/45 is relatively painless and inexpensive, involving the installation of a different hammer bushing that's available from numerous aftermarket parts providers. Regarding the Mark III, one provider suggests replacing the hammer in your Mark III with a Mark II hammer when using their hammer bushing, so if you plan on making this change be sure to investigate if such a recommendation is suggested by the manufacturer/provider before ordering from them.

    The fairly simple procedure is shown in the video below produced by one such provider:

    2 Mark III's here --both 5.5in Target models---one stainless standard the other is a blued 22/45----only mod to both of the is removal of the mag disconnect.

    The stainless one has been 100% since day one---the 22/45 was a little sticky to start with but is now 100% also----both get better the more you shoot them.
