An awful lot of gun owners own a Ruger 10/22 rifle. They are inexpensive, fun and cheap to shoot, and highly customizable. Also a good platform for practising your gunsmithing skills.

In this video AGI’s Jack Landis looks at the Promag 10/22 Extended Bolt Release. These have become much less expensive these days, so if you own one of these rifles and haven’t yet added one of these, there really is no excuse anymore.

  1. The bolt release is an easy modification to the stock Ruger bolt lock/release. A few minutes with a Dremel tool can reshape the hole in the part. Remove the heart shape dip to a more oval shape, deburr and touch up with a black Sharpe. Eliminates fumbling with the stoch bolt release. Cost – just some time.
    For a bolt buffer – replace the bolt stop pin with a piece of 1/4″ nylon rod – available at hobby shops – blacken ends with a Sharpe – cost about a buck vs $10 – &15 for a bought part.
