Just bought a new Ruger 22/45 lite mark III. Went to the range and had a lot of FTF. After changing ammo brands still FTF. OK maybe it just needs to be cleaned and lube. Taking down a Ruger Mark is not a problem for me due owning 3 of them. Well this one would not break down without having to use a punch to push the main spring assembly pin through (it was tight). Once the assembly came out it was time to remove the firing pin assembly and that is where the problem was. Apparently the keeper of the spring was broken into two pieces, not allowing for the bolt to function. Hummm this pistol is only 6 days old. I took the gun back to the dealer and was told by an employee that i could take the gun to their gunsmith and pay him for the repair. Or, they would send the pistol back to Ruger and wait 6 to 8 weeks. My thought process was 1: you have 8 or 9 mark III's on the shelf why not remove the part and install on my gun while they wait for a replacement. 2: why not let your gunsmith fix it with a new spring and call it good customer relationship. I guess my question is... am i asking too much of the dealer?
