I don't see the over travel screw you are referencing, only the return spring plunger at the rear of the housing.

As gcrank1 said ealier, there is no overtravel screw on the stock Ruger 10/22 trigger assembly. What you are seeing in the photo is the tenon of the trigger return spring. You don't see the spring itself because it is contained within the body of the trigger guard itself.

Some people have tapped the rear of the trigger guard for a small set screw to limit overtravel, or the trigger itself, but that is not seen in the photo.

OK thanks again folks.

It is trigger return spring tensioner, not an overtravel screw.

Take the trigger assembly out and clean with spray and lubricate.

Learn to shoot without the sling.

See if I can locate some second hand LWH trigger parts.

Looked at extended magazine release, is it easy (too easy) to trip while carrying the rifle with your hand wrapped around the magazine?

To release the magazine with the extended release lever that Ruger now uses on the 10/22, you push the lever forward to drop the magazine.

I prefer to push the lever forward with the thumb of my shooting hand, and allow the empty magazine to drop into my open palm. I have heard of some folks complaining about snagging the magazine release on brush, etc. while hunting. It has never happened to me, but I do not hunt.

I prefer the Timber Creek extended magazine release that I posted a link to in post #39. It works the same way as the Ruger extended release, but instead of sticking straight down, it curves back toward the trigger guard and is a bit more out of the way.

There are also magazine release levers that extend back and under the curvature of the trigger guard.

Took her apart for the first time. Not bad, broke the barell band. So I need a new one, any ideas?

There is a pretty good wear spot on the barell where the barrel band was. Two of the trigger pins fell out, a light tap popped the third pin out.

The return spring fell out. The housing must be cast? Not magnetic and it feels heavy for plastic.

It seems I don't really need a barrel band so I won't worry about it for now.

I struggled with the bolt and charging handle last night. Could not remove them.

Tonight I picked up the receiver to take the scope off and they both just fell out.

Removed the two 5/32" Allen screws that hold the v block on ( there doesn't seem to be a top or bottom, either way is ok?).

Twisted the barrel as I pulled it out of the receiver.

Time to clean.

how did you manage to break the barrel band?

hope you don't plan on removing the barrel every time you're going to clean it

Tactical Innovations has nice barrel bands in various colors.

Yeah, removing the barrel every time you clean it will put the receivers's tolerance out of sync.

Breaking the barrel band? While testing the elasticity of the cast metal band during removal I found it's limits.

No, I don't want to take the barrel out every time. This is her first time for a major cleaning. And, I am learning how it works. Probably will be seeking help as I re-assemble.

Does this peening on the receiver mean anything?
