Ruger 10-22 Bolt Stop release

Chris, 10-22 trigger spring instruction video you mentioned the terrible bolt stop release on the Ruger 10-22… What do wee need to do to work on that? mine is a disaster !!


Five minutes with a Dremel will do the trick.

You can also buy one cheap on eBay for as little as $5

or a little more expensive but name-brand for arount $13

I do recommend polishing the release - I used fine steel wool on all surfaces and the cutouts, and used plenty of lube on it at first so it didn’t hang up.


@phuzzy42 Volquartsen’s Mag release at the same time is a nice add On and then I drill the Trigger and put a Preload adj Screw.
