    I installed the auto bolt release on my 10/22 and now it semi-functions. Every 5th-6th round the bolt release will get stuck and hold the bolt open. There is only one way to install the thing so I do t think it's installed wrong. Has anyone else had this issue or know what I can do to fix it?

    Was this a purchased one (brand?) or a DIY one? Take it apart, and reassemble.

    I don't remember the brand but it was purchased from one of the big name websites for accessories. I'll try that and see if it helps.

    The spring that holds the bolt catch is wrapped around the hammer. One end is on the bolt catch in a little notch. The other end has to be held under the pin that goes through the bolt catch.
