I just sent ruger an email to reflect this.

the first pic is both bolts next to each other.

second one is mine with properly bent spring.

third is hers with bad spring.
Wow, that is some really crappy milling on the bolt in pic#3. I guess Ruger runs the milling cutters until they are as dull as my u-know-what! This is just wrong. At some point the quality control at Ruger seems to have went "south" and they just fix returned firearms as required. Probably cheaper that way is all I can figure.

Heck it doesn’t even look like your wife’s bolt spring retainer thingy is even installed all the way. An 1/8” long and bent?


Sad. I hefted one in the gunshop and figured I would do my due diligence before considering buying. Glad and sad I did, there seems to be a lot of trouble with this model, accuracy not meeting up to precision name, poor magazine fit, possible design flaw in thread protector , easily flexed stocks.

I was intrigued due to the many positions of the stock. Would work with winter coats.

ejector problems

I had a customer bring in his RPR/22 that had ejection issues. The ejector was so loose that when a spent cartridge hit it it would rock back thus eliminating the power needed to eject.I had to remove the ejector and weld on the back side of it thus supporting the ejector to eliminate the rocking and make the ejector rock solid.It now ejects 100 %.
