If push comes to shove - if they just can't get this worked out to your satisfaction - you can ask Ruger to replace the rifle.

But first:

When the "jams" occur, is it the last round in the magazine by any chance?

Is it only when you pull the slide back to chamber the first round, or does it happen as the rifle cycles a new round into the chamber after firing a round?

Have you tried loading just one or two rounds into a magazine to see if you can replicate the issue?

Just trying to narrow things down a bit here.

The magazine needs to be taken apart cleaned lubed (and not much dry lube preferred) and reassembled, looks like the factory didn't get the mag properly lubed during assembly. the 25 round mags had this issue.

I'm not a Ruger apologist, and I'll say that in my 40+ years working on guns as much as 75-80% of feed problems with semi-autos is caused by magazines, IME. Ammo is a huge consideration with rimfires, especially semi-autos. I would try a 1/2 dozen different magazines, and several different types of ammo before I gave up.

I asked a gun manufacturer to replace a gun once, and they did. The one they gave me was even worse than the one it replaced! For the record, it was not Ruger.

CCI Mini-Mags are the unofficial reference ammo for semi-auto .22 guns. A semi-auto .22 that doesnít run on Mini-Mags has a problem.

Bozz48 has a spectacular aura aboutBozz48 has a spectacular aura about
Ruger recommends not shooting Stingers in 10/22 Target models due to the longer cases. I don't know if that's what is causing the jamming, but if you send pics of the bent Stingers.....they are going to blame the ammo.

I can appreciate that this is an extremely frustrating experience. I'd definitely want to write off that particular rifle, but before you move away from a 10/22 model entirely, I'd encourage you to consider a replacement instead (if Ruger offers one instead of a refund). Every experience I've had with a 10/22, and everything that I've heard from friends/family/forum members have formed my opinion that the 10/22 is one of the most reliable semi-auto options out there.

Every company is going to produce lemons from time to time, it it certainly sounds like thats what you have. Ruger has one of the best customer service departments out there. Hang in there and be patient, and I'm sure they'll make it right.

A+

OP I myself wouldn't give up on the platform and if it were me I wouldn't give up on the model you have. The 10/22 is a simple design one that I have found to be fixed relatively easy. I have three 10/22's now. With one, the newest one made last year, it was very ammo finicky when I first got it. It would not run Winchester's in the 222 box, lead nosed federal in the bulk box, nor plated Federal American Eagles. I would have fail to feed, fail to eject, all the above. It would run CCI mini mags somewhat consistent. I spent some time on the rimfirecentral forum (those folk love their 10/22's) and came across some good info. What I end up doing was polishing the inside of the receiver with some Green Scothbright and oil, followed up be some mother polish all by hand. I then polished all the contact points on the bolt again only by hand. You would be amazed how much paint overspray was inside the receiver. Took about an hour in total. The carbine eats everything now and I don't use any oil. I was amazed how little it took. I have since done the same to my other 10/22's.

I am not saying this will make you 10/22 right but there is not much to them and not much to go wrong. I would definitely try another magazine and some CCI's but I wouldn't give up.

Hope it works out for you. Ruger is a top notch company and they one way or another will make it right.

Probably the best option for you. Most 22's do not run 100% right out of the box without at least breaking it in with a couple hundred rounds and sometimes a little polishing or tweaking here and there.

If you do not want to do a little tweaking or try different types of ammo to see if you can fine one that it runs well with then return it and move on.

Considering there are well over a MILLION of them out there in this great big world, they must be doing something right. Hang in there, they will take care of you.

I have had Ruger .22 firearms since 1965. All of them have shot standard velocity ammo from day 1. I have sent 1 or 2 of the different center fire guns back to Ruger for repair, and have been less than satisfied with the results. I have found that I usually get better results going back to the gun shop that sold me the firearm in the first place. The next thing I would tell you is that a good local gunsmith could have fixed what ever is wrong in short order and probably cost you less than the time, and money you spent packaging up the gun and sending it back to Ruger, and waiting for it to come back. More time with your Grandson, and more time for him to practice seems like a win, win proposition to me.
