in the manual that came with my buck mark it says to remove the rear site base screw. easy enough, and it takes the allen key that came with the manual.
Next it says loosen the barrel mounting screw. Anyone know what I use to loosen it? it's not the allen key and i can't see in to tell what it is, and i don't want to start trying different things and mess up the head of whatever it is.

Thanks

All the trouble I've had with my Ruger, I almost wish I would have went with the Browning.
Glad you got it figured out.

Nah, the MK's can be a pain to strip at first but in that regard they are still way ahead of the Buckmark which is held together by some tiny screws and star washers. The holes and screws have to be thoroughly cleaned, degreased and loctited every time you reassemble the gun. It is not nearly as rugged as the Ruger.

Takes practice and patience to become proficient, and it's worth it!

Stripping them is easy.
It's getting my MKIII to shoot with out stove piping that has been a pain in the ass. I think I have the probably solved now.

Mine does. I take it apart pretty often, between 500 and 1k rounds. I have tried replacing the screws and star washers but they still do not hold tight without using Loctite. Using screws and lock washers to hold together a gun is not a great design. If it were not for this issue, I would prefer the Buckmark over the Ruger.
