Take Down Pins -- Super Loose

Question -- my new 10/22 Takedown has very loose take down pins -- specifically, the bolt and two receiver pins. In fact, once the receiver is removed from the stock, gravity is all that is needed to remove the pins. This issue makes re-assembly somewhat difficult. Is this common or just another QC issue? Other 10/22s I've owned require punches to remove the pins. Thanks

Its fairly common. I've had 10/22's that needed a punch to remove the pins and some that just fell out when removing the stock. Neither effected the accuracy of them.

My 10/22 is 25 plus years old. When cleaning and removing the stock. I try to be very careful and not role the gun side to side. Otherwise, the pins will fall out and I get to play search and find. Aligns fine on reassembly and fires fine.

It's a super mass produced receiver so you're not going to get the perfect fit and tolerances with the holesins. Use a piece of Scoth tape on one side or peen the edge of the hole.

Hi
if the loose pins bother you. kidd mades a set that are held in with scerws. In the kit he gives you a little counter sink tool so that the screws will be flush. you can do it hand. proably take about 15 mins. when your done you'll see screw heads instead of the pin ends. My pins are loose also it's normal. I think Ruger even mentions it in the manual or their vidieo.
Also I see you're new here welcome to the forum. Great place with great people. Who are always looking to help one another.

Mine just fall out also. Atleast the larger buffer one definitely does more often, forgot if the smaller ones do but I know they are loose.

A friend and I bought the same 10/22 carbine model and his bolt and receiver pins fall right out and Mine don't. I have to use punch and hammer to drive out the bolt pin, The reciever pins come out by hand with punch. The pins that just fall out by gravity while cleaning mine are the ejector pin and the mag release pin. Spent about ten minutes the other night searching garage floor for the ejector pin, not fun.

That's yet another reason to have a good work space to do this stuff in. (hint - gunroom)

having mine for only a month or so, they were hard as heck to get out at first. had to punch them out. now they come out prettily readily, and i've also had to use the scotch tape/macgyver technique, particularly to hold the safety pin in place. that little sucker just wants to go off into the world and do its own thing.

All my 10/22's are like that. You will get used to it and it shouldn't be a problem.

Loose take down pins is a plus, not a minus. Use a piece of scotch tape if it is a problem, but really it should not be. Tight pins, as in one of my 10/22s, are a pain.
