View Full Version : 10/22 locking/unlocking bolt a pain

I have been reading a lot of threads about upgrades for the 10/22 and I think down the road I may try a bull pup build, but for now I want to make some basic changes.

First thing I would like to find is something that makes it easier to lock and unlock the bolt.

Does anyone else have this problem and are there any upgrades to fix it?

3 minutes with a Dremel or a bit longer with a round file!

Sweet. Thanks.

Do you know if the Kidd trigger kit comes with this mod already done?

Yeah, the auto bolt is the answer. I started by buying one, then when I realized the difference, I took out the factory part of my other 10/22's and altered the original. Takes like 10 minutes and then complete happiness. While you are there if they do not have the extended mag release, then that is also a must do. You can also take the trigger and sear apart and do some polishing. Some alter those parts as well, but I will leave that up to you. Have fun.
