    I have an American chambered in .270. Love the rifle, however if I work the bolt a certain way, the bolt will come out without hitting the release.

    Any ideas what I can do to fix it, other than sending it into ruger for repair work?

    I don't see how the bolt can just slide out. It has that groove the bolt stop has to follow then it hits one of the lugs. This what mine looks like. My RAR is chambered for .308. I have not yet noticed a problem like this. Best of luck though!

    Check your bolt stop release button make sure it's in there properly. My pin that holds the release will slide down. But can only slide down so far!
