Some years ago a good friend showed me how to disassemble and re-assemble my 10/22 for cleaning. I think This very easy process should be learned and used by all 10/22 Owners...and that knowledge passed on to new owners.
Just this past weekend I offered to upgrade my Brother-in-Laws 35 year old 10/22 with a new Synthetic Buffer with one of the "Tuffer Buffers". My 'BIL' (brother-in-law) told me he had NEVER disassembled his 10/22 for cleaning. I warned him that we would find the bolt and receiver area very dirty....And we did too!!!! With some Hoppe #9, A Brush and some Slip2000 we turned this great old rifle into a very clean and smooth operating 10/22. He also learned how easy and valuable this knowledge really is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZjHaGBgHs0
I encourage everyone who owns this great gun to follow the links provided here or go to "youtube" to watch and learn how to disassemble and re-assemble your 10/22 for cleaning.
IT REALLY IS EASY!!!!!
You won't be sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!
