DrGunner, do you refinish/repair furniture in VA? If so, we've met before

I build mine from all aftermarket parts anymore, mostly Kidd-

This is what my TD looked like after about 1500 rounds. The after pic is the result of some 400 and 1000 grit sand paper.

Which area of the receiver does the bolt actually ride on? Is it the small ledge on the top of the receiver on the side the shells eject out of?

Itís pretty much a concert of a mass in motion scooting along a guide rod ~ anchored only at one end, aided along its way proper by the charging handle, the ledge underneath the ejection port, the bolt guiderail cast onto the receiver ceiling, and with both receiver sidewalls, the trigger housing, its ejector, its magazine retention/positioning vibes, and the magazine and its innards all to some extent also entering into the mix.

I realize that the 10/22 is priced to be an economy gun, but like someone else mentioned, they could easily afford to smooth their molds out.

Another important step, as Chaser mentions, is after it is polished and CLEAN, spray the inside of the receiver and bolt with Hornady's One Shot or another quality dry lube. These new lubes keep the bolt and receiver clean for a long time and the bolt just glides with ease. It just flat out makes the action operate better, making it more reliable.

Unhappy Scotch Bright Pads

Word to wise folks.

"NEVER" use this product unless you are aware that is micro abrasive.

It is innocent looking sand paper. It will ruin anything in seconds!

You can scour out the bore of a cannon with it!

BMW + Scotchbrite Pad + BMW windshield =$2500.00.

Use utmost caution with said pad Grasshopper.....

Anyone that uses it on a windshield shouldn't be aloud to have a gun.

Many, many moons ago, when I was a crew chief in the USAF, we had a senior nco who thought it a brilliant idea to use the green pad to get the bugs off of an A7D windscreen and canopy while we were deployed (a new/young kid asked him what would work best). As I was walking by I put a screaching halt to his ignorant, 'brilliant' bug removal work. We didn't allow 'Sgt Scratch' to touch anything on the flight line again - ever. We had a young gal who was about the only one with enough patience and talent to remove the scratches and it took her nearly a week to return it to flyable status. The stuff works great on metal (we used it quite a bit on aircraft), but plastic - yikes! I follow the Chaser method and it's worked out great on my 10/22s (as well as a lot of other things).

Hmm. I think I'm one of them, already looking around for what Scotchbrite I have around the house.

This thread gives me faith in humanity again.
Long story short - a good friend has a 10/22 that has seen better days. I offered several times to 'fix it up' for him.

I've 4 of em and the pile of old parts to show for it. Not an expert by any stretch but I can cobble one together as good as the next guy.
Keep in mind he owns a farm and this has weathered a transition from his first nutria/opossum/skunk critter getter gun to a farm tool.

Last time we swung by he mentioned wanting to use it but he cant get it to shoot. Asked if I would fix it. How hard can it be?..its a 10/22 after all.

Story is- his son and a buddy were using it and it got left on the top of the truck when they went to town. (They noticed it when it flew off going around corner and busted the stock in half.)
They bought another stock. I now have it and took it apart.


The galling and dull tooling from 1974 fit in perfectly its clean appearance BTW. The others I have dealt with have some flaws but nothing like this one.

Then noticed the firing pin was bent? And there is an indentation or reflection of the bolt (apparently it was locked open when it flew off the truck) inside the top of the receiver.
Hence why I was happy to find this thread with any ideas on how I could straighten this mess out and if I should take the ..bolt divot out..and how much to clean it up.

I should have taken a picture of it also but have been feverishly cleaning and ordering parts since I got into it.
Glad I am not the only one out there wondering how the heck to clean up the receiver.
I am replacing everything but the receiver housing and the trigger housing (after they get cerakoted).
Even the original mag is crap. Hard to give up on the old beast after all it has been through.
