I bought this weapon used, but it looks in really good condition. I have a hard time getting the bolt to move forward when it is locked back. I have to drop the magazine and push the locking mechanism up with my finger to get it to release. What do I have to do to fix this? The next thing I want to do is make it a tack driver. What's the best things I can do to this weapon to achieve this. I'm new so I need expert advice and that's why I joined this sight. Thanks

We are glad you joined us here at Rugertalk.
Welcome to the forum.

Let me encourage you to go to "Introductions" and tell all of us a little about yourself.

To solve your ease of getting the bolt forward you need to replace the bolt release with an aftermarket bolt release and should replace the mag release also for easier mag release.
Its very easy to do and inexpensive.

Heres a link for ya.

Ruger 10/22s work fine without aftermarket anythings. If your bolt is not moving smartly, as you describe, field strip and lubricate. Even if the gun is in excellent shape, if it has set idle for awhile there may be gunk or whatnot that is inhibiting the action movement. My guess is that the gun will be fine if you lube it and work the action manually to loosen it up.
