I have two 10/22’s.
One from 1985 and a takedown from 2016.
The 85 carbine version is very smooth and quiet when manually cycling the charging handle. No issues.
The 2016 takedown (~2,500 rds.) has a very rough/scratchy feel when manually cycling…almost like it’s touching the recoil spring. I’m wondering if it’s out of spec from the factory?
Going to look closer tomorrow and might do a polishing.
Anyone had to do the polishing? And did it help?
All ideas appreciated.
I’m not ready to go for a new bolt or a KIDD yet…but tempted for $110.00.
