You can modify your existing factory bolt release to be an auto bolt release. All it takes is a small stone bit in the Dremel & a few minutes. It performs exactly the same as aftermarket auto bolt releases.
I bought 2 auto releases I like this better just pull bolt and release! I tried to make my second one bought a small file, but the top part that engages bolt was holding bolt there is more to it than just filling point in the pin slot the finger that touches bolt,,, has to be made smaller Most auto actions are this way,, simply pull back and let go
It's really easy to modify the factory 10/22 bolt release to "auto bolt release". It just takes a couple minutes of careful use with a Dremel Circular metal grinding cone bit and you basically have the very same exact bolt release that auto bolt releases sold as aftermarket are. Be aware that a smack of the butt on the floor will make the bolt close after that. I'll take some pics the next time I do 1 and post them.
Stalkingbear, I'm sure a lot of us will be happy to see those pics and learn something.
Thanks in advance. :Cooltu:
Next time I have my 10/22 apart I'll take a look at those parts to try and figure out how to do that job.
