10/22 Magnum recoil spring



Log in to see fewer ads
Is there anyway for me to replace the 10/22 Magnum recoil spring? I bought one from Wolff spring, however, I can't get the factory handle off the guide rod to replace the spring. Is there another way to add spring tension? Having ejection problems. Yes, the extractor/ejector are fine. The rifle is from 1999 and pretty sure it needs replaced. It's easier to work the bolt on my 10/22M than my 10/22....

what do you mean you can't get the charging handle off of the guide rod?

you did file down the two little nubs that hold the handle onto the rod...didn't you?

I sure didn't! That is why I joined this forum! That is what I was going to attempt, but wanted to know if anyone had actually done it or had any other way. Thanks for the insight....

I use a small pair of needle nose vise grips with tape covered jaws to clamp onto the rod after I push the handle down a bit, then just file slowly 'till the handle will just come off the rod, after you get the spring swapped, use a punch to displace a bit of metal (in the same areas that you had to file away) to keep the handle in place on the rod...and remember this is a spring under compression, so be careful

Just to add to crackedcornish's directions:

There should be a little barrel shaped spacer between the spring and the charge handle. If you're not aware of it it will launch itself into the farthest and darkest corner of the room and hide.

All good info so far but, things as small as that little barrel washer don't hide when launched! I am convinced they disappear before touchdown.

You are probably right. I never found one I launched about 8 years ago. It can happen during reassembly, too. The only place I haven't looked is on the blades of the ceiling fan.
