Majestic Arms Ruger .22 Auto Pistol Speed Strip

Anyone familiar with the Ruger MKII/III or the 22/45 know it is infamous for being a pain to field strip and even more of a pain reassembling. Majestic Arms makes a kit that you can install to make field stripping the Ruger pistol easy. Here is a video explaining the installation and operation of the speed strip.


Majestic Arms replaces the Bolt Stop Pin with a two piece version allowing the user to remove the bolt stop pin and thereby removing the bolt for field stripping without going through the hassle one would normally go through in taking the gun apart. Their 3.2kit also gets rid of the magazine disconnect in the firearm. Another byproduct of their speed strip kit, the trigger pull is reduced down to 3.5 – 3.75 lb.




You can check out and buy the kit from their website.

    This guy makes good how-to videos. Maybe I will now consider a 22/45 in future.

      be a lot better if when he goes to show inside the gun if he waited for the camera to focus.

        I believe it would be beneficial if they actually used a video production company. They have great content but I would like to see the details of the pieces.

          Yeah filming at 480p resolution is pretty bad. Why dont these guys use smartphones to film this? Get some HD quality video.

    I have a MKII 5″ BBL that is still TIGHT after thousands of rounds and dozens of deep cleans… If .22 ever becomes readily available at non gouging prices I might consider this!

    Could someone please tell me why a gun that requires tools to disassemble would be preferable to a gun that just requires a lot of force? Also, my Ruger loosened up after a couple thousand rounds with me cleaning it every 200-300 rounds with my other handguns (took about a year) and I have no trouble disassembling it without a mallet.

      You dont have to have a tool, you can still take it apart the old way. the kit just makes it so you can pop the bolt out and not have to mess with the stupid re-assembly process if you want to unscrew the bolt stop.

    22/45s rock. I only clean mine about every 5 years anyway, so it’s no big deal that it’s a PITA to do so.

    I’ve had one of these speed strips on my 22/45 for over ten years. It’s the easiest cleaning gun I have now and I wonder why everyone hasn’t made the switch. The single downside I’ve heard is that the new bolt stop pin might interfere with some after market rear sights because it sits up higher.

    I was nearly impossible to put the 22/45 back together after I bought the Majestic Arms kit. I finally took it to a gunsmith. He did it but wasn’t happy about doing it at all.

  • Vaughan

    I must clarify please that the Majestic Arms kit is great! The Ruger design is the problem!

  • Nashvone

    My only complaint about my 22/45 is the convoluted assembly process. It’s a fun gun to shoot when I can find ammo.

  • scaatylobo

    Ruger really, REALLY needs to make this a part of their manufacturing !.
    Great product though.

    I love the blurry focus zoom on all the times you’re supposed to ‘carefully look’ at something.
