Raining today so I decide to take my new Ruger 22/45 apart Disassembly went fine. Reassembly was a minor nightmare. One problem I found was Ruger's instructions for reassembly. Confusing. After half an hour I stopped looking at the manual and looked instead at the pistol itself. Things began to fall into place. It's back together again and I've gained a new respect for it's design.
