Reassembling the Ruger Security Six .357 Magnum

As the current state of this tutorial does not yet entail full disassembly of the Ruger Security Six, this section is rather sparse. More data will be added here when I complete work on the full disassembly procedure. As previously noted, full disassembly and cleaning is recommended at least once a month for firearms that are utilized often (as mine are).

Before starting this, read the Preparation page!

Once you've finished all the cleaning steps, remember the basic rules of safely handling your firearm. Namely, keep your finger off the trigger at all times, and keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

Wash your hands! You've just been handling toxic solvents, oils, and have been in close contact with lead, gunpowder residue, and a number of other contaminants which can cause bodily and reproductive harm. Do NOT skip this step! More importantly, perform this step whenever you happen to take a break from cleaning your guns. Do not handle tobacco, food, drink or even rub your eyes until you do this step!
Congratulations! You're now ready to use your newly-cleaned and reassembled firearm. Have fun and be safe!
