In this part of my Ruger American Pistol Review, I cover disassembly, reassembly and some of the internal features on this new pistol from Ruger.  Instead of covering these with a bunch of written commentary, I have tried to cover them in detail in the following video.  Although, I have still provided many photos on the internal features so you can study them as needed.  Remember that you can see a high definition image of these photos by clicking on them.

The Ruger American Pistol is extremely easy to disassemble and reassemble and there should be no excuses for not keeping your pistol clean.  Ruger also has incorporated a new design for their pistols with the integration of the fire control insert and interesting way they incorporated the striker blocker.
