The unique Ruger 10/22 rotary magazine design has withstood the test of time for 50 years. However, .22 caliber ammunition is quite “dirty” and can foul your Ruger 10/22 magazine, causing failures to feed (FTF).
Periodic cleaning your Ruger 10/22 magazine will ensure trouble-free operation and eliminate most FTFs. Cleaning your Ruger 10/22 magazine requires disassembly and reassembly. Disassembly and cleaning is the easy part; it’s putting it back together that’s the challenge: setting proper spring tension is tough—too much might cause a jam; too little and rounds won’t feed correctly.
With a work tray that you attach to your bench, a spring tensioner, and a hex wrench, the Borel Sports Ruger 10/22 Magazine Assembly Tool makes reassembling a Ruger 10/22 magazine with the correct spring tension a snap.
