Has anyone installed one of these kits for the Ruger MK III pistol? Did it "drop in" as they say and was it worth the money ? thanks Don

    Without knowing your mechanical ability it would be very hard to know if you would consider this drop in . If you are able to remove the original parts then most likely you would be able to install new replacement parts . You WILL NEED the parts breakdown picture that came with the pistol and you MAY need to take the pistol apart 4 or 5 times AFTER you install new parts to adjust the OVER TRAVEL of the trigger. Is it worth the time and money YESIf I were in the BUSINESS I would charge $50.00 takes one to two hours the first time. I don't work Cheap[;)]

    Perry,

    I asm not sure when the last time you had any pistolsmith work done, but $50.00/hour, happens to be on the extremely affordable side these days. Especially for one with the knowledge you have about most of the bullseye guns. most are well above the Dollar per Minute rate.

    To the original poster...As perry shooter states, if you can get it apart, and practice doing that a few times, then yes, it can be a drop in type procedure. Yes, it is worth the money, however, I would personally prefer the MK-II over the MK-III.

    I'm cheap. A Clark steel trigger and "Sam's Canadian Bushing" make a real nice upgrade for under $40.00.
