RUGER 10/22 Takedown Alignment Issue FIX.

i am secret.asiam.man on CGN. i picked up my 10/22 TD from turners last night. when i inspected my rifle i noticed that it had an alignment issue, the fore end tilted to the left. turners kindly showed me 3 more new rifles and they all had that problem. i accepted the rifle because i trust the Ruger name.

i just got off the phone with Ruger and they explained to me how they fix the problem. so if you don't to send your rifle back in and wait for it to be repaired continue reading. start at step 5 if you are not a 10/22 newb or a troll.

what you will need:

5/32 allen key.


step 1- safety check.
step 2- lock your bolt back and remove the magazine.
step 3- take down your take down.
step 4- put the fore end and barrel away you only need the receiver end.
step 5- using your 5/32 allen key loosen both screws (do not remove), allowing the piece of metal to move around.

step 6- using your thumb and index finger move the metal piece in the direction shown. (if it makes things worse try moving it in the opposite direction, your alignment issues may not be in the same direction as mine.)
step 7- while holding the metal piece in place with your finger tighten the screws.
step 8- assemble your take down rifle. you may need to adjust this a few more times before you hit center. (it took me 3 times before i was satisfied)


doing this fix will also tighten the connection a little. it will feel more snug. some believe that will improve accuracy.


About the gouges on the inside of the magwell. they are nothing to worry about, all of the guns have them. those two gouges is where the stocks are cut away from the mold. it is purely cosmetic.


GOOD LUCK!

Thanks for the good info. This would have been very helpful a year ago, before I got rid of my 10-22. I loved that rifle, but it was slightly out of alignment.
