Question Receiver Cross Pin replacement?



Log in to see fewer ads
One of the local links took me to Ruger site that recommended replacing the steel cross pins with a hard plastic replacement. (Part B-5)
Two questions.
#1 Does it help fight the metal fatigue cracks it mentioned in the reciever. And #2 if so where can I locate a source for them.. since I didn't happen to see them in thier store section.

Thanks from a new comer to Ruger Rifles...

Hang on a minute. The receiver cross pins designated as B-5, hold the trigger group into the receiver. You are talking about the bolt stop pin, affectionately referred to as the bolt buffer. I have to go find the exploded drawing, but I believe it is B-46.

I am intimately familiar with this because I am still looking on my workroom floor for the stupid receiver cross pin that dropped out when I wasn't looking. I'm going to have to order some from somewhere, lousy $1.50 part. I'm going to order a bunch.

Oh yeah, several of our sponsors sell different kinds of bolt buffers.

Yup, bolt buffers like the ones from Weaponkraft, are much preferred over the factory bolt stop pin. The first thing you notice is that they get rid of that annoying metal slapping noise every time the bolt hits them. But there are a great many more benefits to them, as well. Do a search, or just look around for threads titled bolt buffers, especially in the "Action" forum. I personally think that a good buffer, and a VQ target hammer, should be the first things you consider doing to your 10/22. They will make your gun more enjoyable, and more accurate because of that.

Then, you will catch the bug

GunLocators,
Is your buffer the same one that Dakotan makes and sells?

I really don't mean to "steal anyone's thunder", but... I Always have had (and always will have) free shipping on everything I make & sell; Always 100% satisfaction guaranteed on everything I make & sell (as in NO sale is final until you like what you bought).
And (of course ) a Lifetime Replacement Warranty on my "Dakotan" (who started that name anyway? ) Bolt Recoil Buffers; Your lifetime, your 10/22's lifetime, your next 10/22's lifetime.... pick a lifetime, any lifetime!

Take Care! - Dakotan

I have no idea if it is the same material. Never have had a Dakotan in my hand so I could not say for sure.

Thanks - you answered my question. I was wondering if you are a distributor of the Dakotan buffer.

No, I am not a distributor. 1 thing I would have to say is that the Dakotan from reading post is top notch product as well. I will NOT knock his product it has gotton a lot of good reviews here. As with our we have had excellent results for the past 4 years.
