10/22 TakeDown Barrel Screw Problem



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi Guys

Recent problem with my barrel attaching to my stock. There a space between I can not close with the barrel screw. The screw is very hard to turn if at all.

My friend came up with an idea: He got a brass flat head punch and taped the screw till the barrel closed and there was no longer any space.

What can I do to fix this problem. The rifle hasn't been shot that much and all of a sudden this problem came up - HELP !

THANKS
GOD BLESS

Not sure I understand your problem. Was it that the barrel wasn't sitting all the way down in the forend? If so it sounds like your friend fixed it. If not I would make a call to Ruger and have them fix it.

I understand what your saying now. (I can't edit my post). I would take the screw all the way out, if you can, and check the threads on the screw and the barrel. Don't try screwing it in any more as it could make it very hard to remove. Sounds like the barrel may not have been lined up properly causing the screw to go in at an angle.
