    This is pics of a ruger 10/22 bolt.The guy said he ground it down for more accuracy.I thought you were supposed to do that to the barrel and then ream it.This was my Ejection problem.And the bulging cases,There is'nt anything left on the bolt hardly.


    Look What some Idiot did!

    I'm looking really hard but can't see a lot wrong with it. Maybe the firing pin is rounded but what else?

    The face is ground down to almost nothing.Where the bullet case seats is not deep enough.
    Also the firing pin is too long,hitting the barrel.Rounding the firing pin.

    Hey John S

    I could'nt beleive what I saw when I looked at this bolt. This guy could've killed me.I called him about it. He's giving me a new bolt. I got something I'm gonna give him If you know what I mean.I'm keeping the bad bolt show everybody I know.And warn them.

    We've had two conversion kits from EAB co. with no problems. Put everything in ourselves.
    Not sure what that fella was thinking when he did that. :smack:

    Looks like he was trying to adjust headspace. Should have adjusted the airspace between his ears first. :eek:
