Loose "Insert"



Log in to see fewer ads
Good Morning all,
I have a Ruger 10/22 take down I purchased in June of this year and the barrel "insert" is now loose, this causes head-spacing issues and feeding issues. I am sending it back to Ruger but curious if anyone else on this forum has experienced issues?

Yes, twice. The first time Ruger couldn't fix it. I returned the rifle then Ruger lost it for a couple of months. Apparently they entered the wrong serial number upon receiving it. They then shipped me a new rifle. I didn't realize at first that the brand new rifle had the same issue until I was sighting it in. That one went back to Ruger. When I got it back I promptly sold it. Not a fan of the td.

What do you mean by loose? You can't tighten it anymore? Or it doesn't fit tight no matter how it's adjusted? As far as I know their haven't been any common problems with the TD model. The most common problem seems to be people not having it adjusted properly (not saying that's the case with yours). The instructions per Ruger are not exactly right.

The pressed in insert slides (moves forward and backwards) in the receiver. It is no longer "pressed" in.

Possibly caused by overtightening the adjustment and it draws the insert out? We do this on some assemblies in the shop to draw.
Can a lock set-screw be put in from each side to hold the insert?

Very true, my error. The insert moves forward, allowing the round to hit the top of the breach face and not enter the breach.

I see. Yeah that sounds like a problem for Ruger to deal with.

Are those just friction fit in there?

Yes, they are pressed in. I am thinking about drilling two holes (above and below the insert, through the receiver, perpendicular to the bore) and pin the insert in place.

I would just send it to Ruger. They have great customer service. You probably wouldn't be without it for too long. Once you modify it they may not fix it if it's still not working correctly.

Of course, I was thinking of pinning it after I received it back, repaired, from Ruger.

Well they sent me a new gun with the exact same issue, this one is going back too. As you can see from the below image the "insert" is sticking out a good half inch.

Sigh, if I did not have so much money invested in an aftermarket barrel and stock I would see if they could just trade it for a regular one.

Friend of mine also had this same failure in his 50th. anniversary seldom-shot 10/22; he bought it new from the local importer and since it would be easier to open a gun store in North Korea than return to Ruger a firearm for repair or replace, he has left it to the store's small workshop to figure out a solution.

He'll pick it up and test it this week, so will keep you all updated about the "solution" they implemented. If such issue should appear in mine, I think I'd use the front scope base screw hole to drill it into the receiver and use a larger screw to pin the insert in place, along with a notch in the latter to allow the screw to grab it and some kind of STRONG adhesive.
