10/22 M1 Carbine Question ...

Greetings all, am new to this forum.

I just purchased a NIB Ruger 10/22 M1 Carbine from my LGS. Question: what size wrench (assume allen?) is needed to loosen the barrel band screw and the top 2 handguard screws. They are not 5/32 like the action screw. I have tried metric and english allen wrenches and nothing fits.

Thanks,
John

Welcome to the forum
Mine takes a 9/64" allen, used the one from my Dillon set.

Be really careful with the two handguard screws when reassembling. There's nothing but metal to wood contact and it's very easy for the wood to get chewed up. Personal experience.

Having run 200 rounds through my new 10/22 M1 today, I ran into the same problem when I tried to disassemble the rifle for cleaning. After a quick Google search I found this forum with this message thread. That gave me the answer and a trip to the hardware store netted a 9/64 Allen wrench. I always thought I had a good assortment of Allen wrenches, but I never had (or needed) a 9/64 before.

Problem solved. Disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled. Thanks!

Here's a few pictures of the gun. It's completely stock except for the sling and oiler I added. I like it!

Nice rifles. I like the sights, I put a red dot on some time to mix it up.

My biggest complaint was the picatinny rail. I modified my picatinny rail to look a little more original, used a mill to cut it down and then painted with a high temp automotive wrinkle paint. After a little time the shine will diminish and it will be more flat. It was a lot cheaper than some of the cruddy looking big $$$ aftermarket sights available.
I did check with the manufacture and the stock is oil finished walnut, did a light sanding and applied another coat of boiled linseed oil.

Are there any other 10/22 models out there that have the ghost ring rear sight like this one?
