My 1022 rifle has never been fired;
the magazines are new, as well.

However
it could be said that I am newer to firearms
than my firearm is new to the world:
so please forgive my ignorance.

Here's my problem:

My weapon cycled fine
when I bought it in late March,
though I noticed it was scratching
some plating off my lead when I
test-fed rounds through it.

SARS-CoV-2 hit,
so no range time, the last month;
but I got familiar with it workings
by field stripping it a few times.

"All of a sudden,"
rounds, regardless of
type/brand/snapcaps,
are no longer slightly scraping
the breech face, but are now
slamming into
the bottom left side of my breech.


142898



I have played around inside,
swapping out the mag release,
bolt release, and
bolt charging handle...

But whether it's stock or aftermarket,
I'm having the same issue.

The only thing I can do
to make the action work properly
is to remove the trigger assembly
and hold the magazine in place
manually.

Then it feeds perfectly fine,
as I manually cycle the bolt,
feeding/ejecting like it should:
it'll cycle through a full BX-25.

When I replace the trigger assembly,
the rounds slam into the breech.

The magazine doesn't seem to be
locked improperly or
placed improperly:
there's no excessive rattle/play
and no issues loading/unloading
the mags themselves.

I am sure this is somehow my fault,
but I just can not figure out
what I might have done incorrectly.

Can anyone please help?

Thanks!

are you using 22lr rounds? NOT shorts or just "longs". there IS a difference in the three rounds...that may be the problem.

have you disassembled the magazine? if you have...you may not have it tensioned correctly for proper feeding. it can also be sluggish in operation due to needing of internal cleaning.

the 10/22 is a very simple mechanism but can be touchy.

I had a similar problem with my TakeDown. Sent it back to Ruger, and it came back marginally better. When it went back the second time, I got a call from the technician who said he replaced the receiver and adjusted the magazines I sent. Since then, it has been flawless. Call Ruger and send it back- they will make it right for you.

Try it with standard magazines and tell us if that makes a difference. The BX-25 mags are known for being picky about feeding and many have reported having to shim/rock/tilt/etc to make them work.

I am having exactly the same problem. I bought my gun in Feb and it has a total of about 250 rounds through it.

Today at the range I had about 10 failures to feed while shooting about 150 shots. It was doing exactly what this guy (not me) shows in this youtube video.

So when I got home I decided to try cycling it just like his is in the video. They were mostly feeding without jamming, but holy crap look what cycling them is doing to my ammo. (Pics below). Every bullet cycled through the gun looks like this.

Is there anything I could be doing wrong to cause this? I'm using Aguila .22 Super Extra LR. It's not a take-down model so it can't be put together incorrectly.

I'm calling Ruger tomorrow. Hopefully they'll know what it is and be able to fix it on one shot.
