Sorry if this post is disorganized and retarded, they're playing with the stupid cat behind me and I cant focus at all out of annoyance. Alright, so my fiances dad has a Ruger .22. He likes guns but he never bought any guns besides this .22 and he never bothered cleaning it. Now I have my own Ruger Mk2 and I've field stripped it and cleaned it many, many times BUT his is 25+ years old. His is an older model, its never been cleaned and its been out in his shed for years. So anyways, when I went to clean it I couldn't get the mainspring housing to come out of the gun. I was guessing that maybe because it was so cold it was just having a hard time coming out. Well I said screw it and threw the gun in a bucket of hot water and dish washing liquid. I've never tried that with any of my guns but I've heard of a lot of people doing this and he doesn't really mind so I figured wth, I might as well try it this once. It came out pretty dang clean, well anyways we did all kinds of crap to get the stupid mainspring housing to finally come out and it finally did. I had already taken the grips off so that we could put a torch to the gun, this was her dads idea and his gun so I wasn't complaining, lol. But anyways, UGHCAKBRWWWK her mom is so annoying. ALRIGHT SO THEN THE PINS SLIPPED OUT AND the sear and the sear spring fell out. I cant get them back into position HELP ME in detail please! I'm going crazy. Oh, yeah...I finally cleaned the gun and everything is in working order except the sear and sear spring so just help me with fixing that before I lose my ever loving mind with this and her mom, thank you.
