I recently found it necessary to clean my Ruger 10/22 factory magazines, as they were having feeding issues. Googling produced some results, but they were not terribly clear, and much swearing ensued.
After successfully wranging with them for a while, I figured there had to be a better way. Thus, I wrote step-by-step directions and took some close-up photographs to aid the directions. I then threw all this together into a simple web page, which is located here:
Normally, I would post it here, but there's a lot of images, and I don't have the time or knowledge to convert all the tags to vBulletin-type tags.
Hopefully this proves useful to RimfireCentral users. Please feel free to send the link to other shooters, post on other message boards, etc.
If you folks have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to let me know. I have a bunch of spare time, a fair bit of guns, and a desire to help people out. I can make step-by-step pictoral guides for the following firearms if there's interest:
* M1 Garand
* Kel-Tec SU-16B
* Yugoslavian SKS M59/66
* Mosin-Nagant 91/30
* Remington 700 BDL
* Ruger 10/22
* Mossberg 500 shotgun
* Glock 19/Glock 26 (essentially identical)
* Bersa Thunder .380
* (and after it arrives) Browning 1919A4 semi-auto.
I can also make guides in regards to magazine disassembly and reassembly for mil-spec M16/AR-15 30-round magazines, how to properly load M1 Garand clips, Glock 19/26 magazines, installing pistol-grip stock on Mossberg 500, manually linking .308/.30-06 for the 1919A4, removing the Bersa Thunder .380 magazine disconnect, etc.
(I realize that those other such guns are off-topic here, but I'll likely make the pages for them in the next few weeks and put them up on my site. I won't mention them here, but if you want to look for them, that's fine.)
I can also make guides showing proper maintenance, cleaning, and care for the abovementioned firearms and accessories. Just let me know what you folks want me to do, and I'll do my best to make a guide for it.
