RUGER 10/22 Takedown Alignment Issue FIX

I found this on another forum that may help new TD owners:

Alignment issues can be seen here:

Method to fix aligment issues:
Quote:
when i inspected my rifle i noticed that it had an alignment issue, the fore end tilted to the left. turners kindly showed me 3 more new rifles and they all had that problem. i accepted the rifle because i trust the Ruger name.

i just got off the phone with Ruger and they explained to me how they fix the problem. so if you don't want to send your rifle back in and wait for it to be repaired continue reading. start at step 5 if you are not a 10/22 newb or a troll.

what you will need:

5/32 allen key.


step 1- safety check.
step 2- lock your bolt back and remove the magazine.
step 3- take down your take down.
step 4- put the fore end and barrel away you only need the receiver end.
step 5- using your 5/32 allen key loosen both screws (do not remove), allowing the piece of metal to move around.

step 6- using your thumb and index finger move the metal piece in the direction shown. (if it makes things worse try moving it in the opposite direction, your alignment issues may not be in the same direction as mine.)
step 7- while holding the metal piece in place with your finger tighten the screws.
step 8- assemble your take down rifle. you may need to adjust this a few more times before you hit center. (it took me 3 times before i was satisfied)


doing this fix will also tighten the connection a little. it will feel more snug. some believe that will improve accuracy.


About the gouges on the inside of the magwell. they are nothing to worry about, all of the guns have them. those two gouges is where the stocks are cut away from the mold. it is purely cosmetic.


GOOD LUCK!

Any chance we could make this a sticky?
I read through the entire forum and found several other threads that probably could have used this as a solution!

Its good fix. But Id ad use a flat head screwdriver to wedge the plate in place when you are tightening the screws.

MrColt,

Any chance you can re-post with the photographs hosted on a more permanent basis? All we see now are placeholders from tinypic that say the imageis no longer available.

Thanks!

I finally got the TD to the range today. This fix seems to have done the trick, however I had to adjust the mount all the way to the one direction to get it shooting properly. I originally moved it to line up the stocks and it was somewhat better, so I pulled it apart and moved it while at the range. The windage straightened out, but it was hitting extremely high. So I had to adjust the rear sight down quite a bit more.
I believe the rotation of the forend caused that.

Im glad this fix was posted!
Thank you!
