    I just picked up this 10/22 takedown and noticed when I got home that the upper and the receiver stocks do not look like they align correctly, especially when viewed from the underside (about 1/8"). There doesn't seem to be any play for realignment. I have not yet shot a round through it.

    Other then the obvious visual, is there something wrong here?

    Have others seen this?

    Is this a defect or am I being too picky?

    I dont own a take down model, but,
    If I had just bought one, and seen this offset , I would question it also,
    and being a picky person, ;) I would probably call Ruger and find out why.

    Then if they said "thats the way it is suppose to be", I would go to my LGS and check a few more.

    Just my opinion.

    The call to Ruger will have to be Monday or so as they are closed for the weekend.....I did send their CS a message about this with a link to the picture. I am going to go back to my LGS and see what they say and compare it to others on display.

    I'm thinking that's no damn good. Also wondering if those two sections were part of the same gun when it/they left Rugerville.

    Mine lines up evenly and the space is equal.

    I witnessed them opening the box (was sealed) so I have to think that is the way they shipped it,

    I know the spacing can be adjusted with the adjustment know, I just don't see a way to realign the hand grip to the reciever:dizzy:

    I would definitely be concerned about that one........................friend of mine has a take down, and it doesn't look anything like that.

    Thank you all for the confirmation that this is off:)

    I did go back to my LGS and they took a look at it. They said definitely defective, replaced it on the spot no other questions asked other than did I fire the weapon, told them absolutely not as I was about to tear it down for it's initial cleaning before heading to the range when I saw the misalignment.

    They did the right thing here:cool:

    Good for your LGS.

    It's a pleasure to do business with good people!

    Sounds like you found a good store.

    I have a Ruger Charger TD that had a similar mid-alignment. It caused an issue with the extractor that led to stove pipes. I was able to correct it by loosening the the locking plate on the receiver and sliding the plate to the side. This cured my stove pipe issues.
