Dissasembly of a 10/22




a beginners guide



First - First - First, is of course SAFETY always check to make sure your rifle is unloaded before starting any projects!






The first step in dissassembly is removing the takedown screw (unless you have one of those fancy models with the barrel band, you will want to remove the barrel band first!). Having a good quality flat ended (as in not tapered) screw driver is best for the job but before you strip the darn thing you may want to change to a allen head screw for better re-torquing feel. Especially if your the "can't leave good enough alone" type.

After removing the screw, push the safety half way so its in the middle of the setting. This will help prevent damage of the stock as you slide the action away from the stock. When removing the action from the stock, you need to tip the for-end up and pivot it out from under the ledge on the trigger group.


Next remove the receiver pins. If the pins haven't already fallen out then they may require some tapping, but usually no heavy force is required.



After the pins have been removed the trigger group can be separated from the receiver.




Next stop - the Bolt Stop

These can be loose fitting from the factory or require a punch and hammer to remove but after its out, toss in one of those fancy rubber type bolt buffers you just bought.


Remove the barrel hold down screws and the V-block to remove the barrel (nothing magical about this step)


If the barrel has a snug fit I like to use a twisting motion while pulling the barrel away from the receiver.

After removing the bolt stop, slide the bolt completely rearward in the receiver. The reason I have these 2 pictures out of order is to show that if you cock the guide rod handle to the side the bolt will remain open making it easier to release the death grip you have on the receiver and guide rod handle. Then you can reach one hand around inside of the receiver and grab a hold of the front of the bolt and lift away from the receiver, however you may want to keep your thumb on the handle.



With the bolt stop removed, the front edge of the bolt will just clear the receiver. (See arrow) At this point the bolt, spring, guide and handle can be removed. When reinstalling the bolt insert the front of the bolt first (this is the most frustrating part of the process).



Reverse instructions for assembly.

Let's work on this up here in Anything 10/22. I, too, did not realize that the Test forum would be pruned and your last effort deleted.

We would appreciate if people would refrain from posting in this thread. Let MorlyKrupt finish it.

Not to be picky, but on a many of models the first step, after checking the weapon is empty, would be to remove the barrel ring.

Thanks for this info

Disassemble pictures and info are perfect. Just going backwords worked for everything with the exception of the handle/spring/guide which was tight as the dickens and I had to use a screwdriver (I got this info from another howto on the web) to put it back in place with the bolt. Maybe include this info for newbs to 10/22's like me? Hope this is helpful to you and others.

+1. All very easy except it was tricky to get the spring to compress on reassembly. One it started to move it was fine but a bit sticky to get moving. Any clever tricks to help with this would be appreciated.

This helps a lot for those of us that just are not mechanically inclined. I am getting ready to rebuild 2 stock rifles and was concerned about just getting the trigger pack out to send off, but it looks like there is not that much to it. Thanks for the pictures.
