Hi!

I have a standard LR 10/22 that has a problem from right out of the box. I didn't know at the time if it was me but I've come to realize it ain't! The bolt slide won't release when I depress the trigger guard latch. It seems to have a mind of its own, generally I have to pull the magazine out before I can get it to close?????Most of the time I have no idea what I do to get it to close!!!Do I have to return it to the factory, or can you give me some hint how to fix this??
Thanks for the advice.

Beg to Differ!

The 10/22 has a bolt/slide release (or if you want ,,,,,a slide HOLD-OPEN Release) on the trigger guard, not to be confused with the magazine release on the magazine proper.

P.S. Currently, I have it in to my gunsmith for evaluation

i was just thinking if this wasn't a terminology thing. couldn't have begged to differ better myself. good luck on the eval. wouldn't think it would be any thing big.

Just a Follow-Up on my earlier post about my 10/22.

I stopped into a gunshop and the owner showed me an older Ruger 10/22 and I'll be ****ed if the thing don't act the same way as mine!!!He was able to release the slide by pushing the release back and UP. When I tried nothin'!!! I couldn't get the ****ed thing to release. He said it was just a matter of getting used to the pulling back on the slide, pushing back and up with the other hand. Is this our best American craftmanship???

if your comfortable enough to take the trigger housing apart you can either buy / or modify your existing bolt release so that with the bolt already locked back all you have to do to release the bolt is pull back on the bolt handle and let go.
