Cleaning 10/22 magazine



Log in to see fewer ads
Heypete,
Just finished cleaning 2 10/22 magazines. thanks for taking time to show us slow folks. But, but, take those pliars you used and recommened, turn the nose down, place the two handles on your upper lip, push up gently till the reach that fuzzy place that allowed you to use pliars on a nut. Feel around up there til you feel the fuzz, twist pliars back and forth til your pliar use recommendation leaves your mind.
Pliars on a nut on a firearm? How about a 7/16th in. box end wrench?
Hope you see better.
Barry in Idaho

This is going into my 10/22 bookmarks for sure. I just shot my new 10/22 for the first time yesterday and this is just an awesome guide. I dont need to clean the magazines yet but now I have a perfect guide for when its time.

I just cleaned 5 used mags using the tips on the website.
After the first one, the next four were a cinch.
I can do these in my sleep now.

Keep up the good work.

I have an old 10/22 I've had since the early 80's and just a couple of days ago I had some problems with the mags(2). I used your guide and I appreciate the time and effort you invested. I could only get 7 twists on the reassembly, but it works great. Thanks!!!

I just bought 2 of the Ruger clear 10rd. mags, One was fine the other one would not rotate the 10 rd. up into the magazine throat. After reading your post. I turned the hex nut 8 flats. It works fine now. Just like It should have when It left the Ruger factory. Thanks for the tip.

Just found this - great video.

I've disassembled 8 magizines and found the spring on the original mags were factory tensioned to 12 to 14 flats. Has any one else found this?

So is it best to assemble them to 14 flats? Or should I just stick to the recommended 8?

These are fairly new mags and I was wondering if Ruger has changed the spring strenth (weaker) resulting in the need for more turns to provide the correct tension.

Dave

Hey Pete, I have a new mag from Ruger that will not advance the bullets. I followed your instructions on dis/assembly. Tried again with same results. I then gave it 9 notche turns instead of eight. worked ok with two bullets. I then loaded all ten bullets and now the rotor stays stuck down during the last bullet and will not feed it.
WHAT NOW Please?

I just disassembled and cleaned one of my 10/22 magazines that was refusing to feed also. This video and the rest of the instructions were wonderful.

I did find if I tightened the 9/64" allen retaining bolt at the front of the magazine too tight it caused the rotor to bind. Backing it out slightly let the rotor turn freely so don't over do the tightening torque.
