New 10/22 Receiver; Damage to V-Block Hole Threads



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello Guys,

Just requesting your input. Just brought home a take-off (brand-new) 10/22 receiver from SAP.

Looked at the hole where the v-block screws thread into and I noticed the hole appears to have been mismachined--like it was about to be drilled, then the drill was withdrawn then repositioned.

The first 2-4 threads are missing on one section but the rest of the threads are good.

Have you guys seen this before? Since I have filled out the paperwork already, I'm unable to return this.

New 10/22 Receiver; Damage to V-Block Hole Threads

Hello Guys,

Just brought home a take-off (brand-new) 10/22 receiver from SAP.

Looked at the hole where the v-block screws thread into and I noticed the hole appears to have been mismachined--like it was about to be drilled, then the drill was withdrawn then repositioned.

The first 3-4 threads are missing on one section but the rest of the threads are good.

Have you guys seen this before? Since I have filled out the paperwork already, I'm unable to return this.

Is the receiver still good? I figure there is still enough remaining threads to hold the v-block screws. But I am not pleased with this QC.

I'd appreciate your input. Thanks in advance!

I think you'll be fine with that.
The v-block screws are pretty long..
Try it and see ?
If she snugs up square.. I'd say you're good to go .

From an engineering standpoint I am not thrilled with the v-block anyway. Given your situation I would get/use the Gunsmither block and never look back.

You should have plenty of threads left. 3-4 threads isn't much to worry about. I believe they are fine threads, so that won't be very deep at all, and the screws are pretty long in comparison, anyway.

If you get all geeked out, CPC threads the barrel into the receiver for $45 if you have him do a tune-up.

Good Luck

That's about as bad as it gets! I would demand a refund + shipping + the transfer fee from SAP. It is no problem sending/transferring it back to them. Let them take it up with Ruger.

return it

paperwork be dammed. If it is a defective item it should be returned. What if it was a complete gun?? S&P sells a lot of receivers, I have one from them, I think they would work with you. Keep us posted on what you find out.

Well you broke the cardinal rule of gun buying, Always inspect before you sign anything.Sure there can be hidden defects, but cosmetic flaws are obvious, and if you donít sign , the gun goes back. I have bought 3 stripped receivers from SAndP , they went to the FFL, I inspected them, then I did the paperwork. Mine were fine. But if i gotten one like yours it wouldíve been on its way back. Let me guess the ffl was busy, had you do the paperwork, and then handed you the package, which you didnít even open unti you got home. So Iíd say you and the ffl are culpable in this instance. The real responsible party is Ruger, so you might have to send it back to them. But Iíd try SAnd P first. Be nice and reasonable, and if it costs you a few bucks , just do it, cause you arenít completely innocent here. Fortunately itís only a $70 receiver, and it probably will work fine, but youíve learned your lesson. Always inspect before you sign.

Send it back if you can. Otherwise, just use it.

Iíve been working on 10-22s for about 35 years and have seen all manner of machining errors. Those holes are overdrilled in order to allow the unthreaded part of the vblock screws to pass through the vblock without binding.
If your VBlock fits up true, and the extractor hook is centered in its slot with the barrel seated, it likely wonít cause any problems with function.
Still, itís a new rifle and you have every right as a consumer to return it as a poorly machined part.
Return it if you can-
If you canít- do as someone else already suggested- use a Gunsmither block, which creates much better alignment to push straight back on the barrel- provided that the sharp lip on the barrel is filed down true/perpendicular to the axis of the bore.
Donít overtighten the Vblock screws. 15-20 inch/lb is adequate and will keep you from pulling down on the barrel.

Good luck with your rifle-

Very good advice, Gumsmither makes a much better V-Block...........
