Ruger Mark 2 binding
I recently bought a Ruger Mark 2 with a bull barrel. While I have heard of the oddities about the reassembly, I had a very hard time taking the barrel off the slide. I had to use a piece of hard rubber and a dead blow hammer. I laughed when I saw a video of a guy using his thumb. Putting it on was just as hard, and I cannot bring myself to tap it into place. It will not snap or press in with my hand. It is close, but the rear pin that goes through the frame, barrel and such does not pass all the way through. In a nutshell, the barrel does not snap onto the frame like the videos have shown. I do not know the age of it, nor how much it was shot. It was not overly dirty. Any ideas?
