It takes lots of patience, frustration, fits of rage, lots of beer, a few whiskies, and three hours.
There is a magic angle you must find. Hold muzzle toward ceiling with top of gun facing up, watch for hammer strut to dangle and hang back, rotate take-down lever in catching strut in the socket, and listen for angels to sing.

It used to take me multiple tries and I used your method frequently.

I eventually found the "Magic angle" but it still took more tries than I could patiently stand. Much simpler to sell it and buy a Mark IV. :p
