I've only used brake cleaner on a rag to de-grease metal, won't it attack plastic ?

Supposedly the non-chlorinated version is better, although still nowhere near safe.

Years ago, I invested in a strong magnet on a stick. Whenever I fire a part across the room, out comes the magnet and up comes the part. At least in theory.

I know the pain of a MIII/IV. I'll never take that thing apart again.

Guess I take mine apart so much that they are easy to disassemble and assemble.

I did it once, back in 1984.
Exactly the last time I dissembled mine.
I won't make that mistake again.
Thousands of rounds of dirty thunderbolts through it and it still goes bang.

It's a generational thing.

Each new generation comes along and has to find its own way. Pop did it, and when it was over, vowed to never do it again.

Young and rebellious, you were determined to show him, and you try it yourself...and vow to never make that mistake again.

Your son comes along and...

my 1022 sat in a Tupperware container for a year until I finally got motivated and reassembled it.

I have a magnet, but apparently I shot it into a parallel universe. Guess I will order one tonight.

Found the guide rod. No sign of the spring.

I feel like Bill Ruger sat around 40 years and thought to himself, "motherfvckers, I'll make sure you remember me every time you clean this rifle" and then let out a Dr. Evil laugh.

What a love/hate relationship with this rifle.
usually the spring on the guide rod doesnt come off? Ive never had one of mine come off, but I also never tried to take the spring off the guide rod. You will find the spring in a couple years when you go to clean it again I didnt think the 10/22 was that difficult to clean but the ruger mark 1,2,3 etc arent too bad once you know how to reassemble it

Usually disassembly isn't bad with the rifle, but assembly is a bitch.

what I get for cleaning guns at 0500.
