Disassembly of a 10/22

A Beginners Guide

First - First - First, is of course SAFETY always. Check to make sure your rifle is unloaded before starting any projects!

The first step in disassembly is removing the take down screw. Having a good quality flat ended (as in not tapered) screw driver is best for the job but before you strip the darn thing you will want to change to a allen head screw for better re-torquing feel. Especially if your the "can't leave good enough alone" type.

After removing the screw, push the safety half way so its in the middle of the setting. This will help prevent damage of the stock as you slide the receiver away from the stock.

Next remove the receiver pins. If the pins haven't already fallen out then they may require some tapping, but usually no heavy force is required.

After the pins have been removed the trigger group can be separated from the receiver.

Next stop - the Bolt Stop. These can be loose fitting from the factory or require a punch and hammer to remove but after its out, toss in one of those fancy rubber type bolt buffers you just bought.

Remove the barrel hold down screws and the V-block to remove the barrel (nothing magical about this step).

If the barrel has a snug fit I like to use a twisting motion while pulling the barrel away from the receiver.

After removing the bolt stop, slide the bolt completely rearward in the receiver.

With the bolt stop removed, the front edge of the bolt will just clear the receiver. (See arrow) At this point the bolt, spring, guide and handle can be removed.

Reverse instructions for assembly.
