On my daughters 10/22 she has to have the bolt locked open to bring it to 4h rifle. We are having a heck of a time to get the bolt to shut after it's was locked back. Is there a trick or is this a problem?

I went cheaper and lazier. Just spent an evening working the thing until it was intuitive.


So from the bolt locked back...


I pull the bolt further back until it stops...


Then, while holding the bolt back, I take my index finger and push up and slightly forward at the indent in the release...


Then let go and business...



Hmmm. I'll try to resize the pics so it's a little neater to look at.

I chose to preform the modification myself. I have the tools, and experience.
I had it out twice to get the shape right, for a BEAUTIFUL release.

Plenty of information out there. Image search for "10/22 Auto Bolt Release"

I once saw $6 price on aftermarket part. Good alternative for many.

This is the one mod that makes the 10/22 work like it should.
