I need a part for my 10/22 that broke last weekend. It is a two dollar part, but online it costs $9.00 after shipping and handling, which is stupid.

So , i am wondering if anyone knows a place near Merced, CA where i might find 10/22 parts?

It's not stupid. You're paying $7 shipping and handling. Someone still has to pull the item from the shelf, stick it in a package that might not be free, print a label, and send it off with the rest of the shipments for the day and that labor would be the same if it were a $500 part.

I am not saying business is stupid, i am saying it is stupid for me to pay 450% the cost of an item if there is an alternative: Hence me asking if anyone knows a local shop where someone doesn't have to pull the item from the shelf, stick it in a package that might not be free, print a label, and send it off .

The point of my post wasn't to be lectured on how business works, but for help to find a local parts shop.

What part are you looking for? I may have a spare laying around.

I think it is the #8 pin, the fatter one of the three that holds the bolt in place in the upper receiver(as opposed to the other two pins that hold the trigger mechanism in place in the upper receiver. I think it is called the bolt stop pin.

Let me look in the parts pile. I'm pretty sure I replaced mine with one of those fancy buffer thingys.

I'll let you know what I find.

Are you talking about the recoil buffer pin? If so, I have an extra one but I live kinda far from you.

I cannot find in my parts lists a part called the recoil buffer pin. The part i am talking about is as described in one of my above posts. As far as living kind of far away from me, I would be happy to pay postage costs to someone who is kind enough to give me a part.

$5.95 for a buffer that replaces that pin with free shipping.

Shouldn't this be posted in the rimfire threads?

Yes, should be in rimfire threads...

and by the way, go with the bolt buffer! Save a lot of wear/tear on the bolt

Yes, this definately should be in the rimfire forum. How did it get here? But, OP get the bolt buffer, I've ordered from gunkings.com several times, usually has fast free shipping.

Hey Max,

Found one in a parts bin. BTW, it's part B-46 on the diagram, Bolt Stop Pin.

PM me your address and I'll put it in a padded envelope and send it to you.

As other have suggested, the bolt buffers are the way to go long term. Wait until the next gun show in your area and pick one up there.

-->Sorry for posting this in the wrong thread. Thanks Garrman for the offer on that part, but i am going to take people's advice and go with the buffer pin.

Any of these standard type pins can be found at a quality industrial hardware store for less than a dollar. The one near me has shelves and rows upon rows of various sizes in boxes of hundreds.

Huh, i didn't even think of that. Is it safe to just put in any old pin that matches and fits the hole?

If it fits, it fits. Where do you think Ruger gets their pins? The certainly don't make them. Rod pins, roll pins, like is like and kind is kind.

You can also get a nylon bolt for like $0.50 and simply cut it to size.

Roushstage2 is correct. Go to your local hardware store and get a nylon 1/4" by 2 1/2" or 3" bolt and cut the head and the threads off. Mine was $0.79 at OSH. It might be loose, but it is not $10.00 and the stock will hold it in place.
