i have a ruger mark 2 and it shot fine nothing wrong with it, but then i noticed it had a metal thing you could pull out on the back of the grip, so i pulled it out and couldnt do anything with it, so when i put it back together the thing you pull back to load the bullet into the chamber doesnt open up all the way now, so i spent about 3hrs trying to fix it and no luck no matter what i do it will not open far enough to get a bullet into the chamber. but when i open the thing up on the back of the grip again the thing pulls all the way back so i can put a bullet in, but once again when i close the thing on the back of the grip there is a bullet in the chamber but it will not fire!! please help me before i melt this gun!! thanks to everyone who helps out please e-mail me on [email protected]

    This is kind of an easy question I'm sure but I don't know the answer.
    Will a Ruger Mark2 magazine work in a Ruger Mark 1

    Yes is you flip the springhold button to the other side.

    As I recall you have to switch the follower button from one side to the other. Use a thin piece of wood to force the follower all the way down so you can reach the cutout in the side of the mag. Just switch the button then.

    Thanks, I've had 4 rugers over the fifty years I've played around with firearms, bought another one though the other day for some reason, and a friend of mine had some magazines for 10 bucks a piece, just didn't know i should get them or not, again thanks
