    Ain't took my SS one apart before, the blued one I had was really simple, I did put the safety in backards, just took it back apart and reassembled it correctly. Ain't much to it really! :wink1:

    For fock sake:rolleyes: :D
    Here is some advice that I have heard for first time engine builders. Use baggies like zip locks and lable them and video or digi cam the break down.

    On a side note..........I went to a gun show once in Marysville CA and there was a guy who had two Ruger 10-22's mounted on a tri-pod with 100 round clips and the guy fabed up a cam hooked to a hand crank to work the triggers. As fast as you could crank the handle the twin guns would spit bullets. It was focking bad ass.

    dale... I have a bunch of 10-22's... I have several I built using AMT receivers. They have a hole machined in the rear of the receiver so you can put a cleaning rod in thru the back (cleaning the gun correctly in the right direction).... I believe this mod is ok for the original 10-22 receiver IIRC,, ask some 10-22 experts...

    remind me and Ill shoot a pic of my best custom 10-22 for you

    isnt it nice to shoot 500 rounds for what a box of good 223 goes for... I like federal match ammo..

    i bought a snake, they are awsome, takes les than half the time to clean a rifle, or a pistol, and you can drop it throught the ejector port

    I bought a Mini-14 from a pawn shop about a year ago, and I downloaded a .pdf instruction manual from Ruger's website. I think they'll mail you one if you wanna go that route.

    I worked back counter at a gun shop while in college & did a LOT of gun cleaning. As far as cleaning the 10/22's trigger group goes, what I found easiest was to use a Hoppe's saturated old tooth brush and work the Hoppe's down into the action & let it soak for bit. Maybe get that started first and let it soak while you work on the rest of the gun. Then blast it with Gun Scrubber and lube for use.

    Note two things about Gun Scrubber:
    A) It completely removes ANY oil, so be sure to oil blued parts against rust.
    B) It comes out of the can with some force and things like trigger groups are exceptionally good at re-directing that stuff into your eyes. :eek1: Eye protection is a MUST HAVE.

    Was very rare that I had to disassemble the trigger group to get it thoroughly clean.

    Hum.... 3 day weekend, excess ammo calling my name......:D
