Default Brand new 10/22 problem

Hi maybe one of you guys out there might be able to help me on this issue. I just picked up my 10/22 rifle on friday and took it shooting this last sunday. When i shot it the round shot but it didnt eject so i cleared it and tried again and had the same troubles. This time it was a little harder to get the spent shell out but i got it out and i noticed a few parts fell out also. I looked them up in my manuel and it looks like its the extractor, extractor plunger & spring. Now my ? is: is this an easy fix or do i have to send it to ruger to get fixed? Im a good trouble shooter and would like to fix it myself and not send it back to ruger. Any help would be great. Thank you

Sure you could probably put those parts back in yourself but IMO if its a brand new gun and its already falling apart it probably needs a trip to the factory to see what else they did wrong...

Thanks for the fast response. I was thinking the same thing but i dont want to wait another month or 2 to get it back. Im not sure what the turn around is like at ruger. I plan on tricking this out a bit but really wanted to have some fun with it b4 i do. Thank God i had my marlin 60 with me!! that rifle shoots so darn good the only reason i got the ruger is cause they have so many cool goodies to put on it.

Definitely tell Ruger about it ASAP and see what they can do for you. A new gun should not do that. I'm sure Volquartsen extractors are better, but I've never upgraded a stock one yet, and have no issues. With the price of 10/22's these days, Ruger needs to make it right.

You are just asking for more negative comments with the above response. Ignore the comments and you will be better off. Just some friendly advice from one who has been there.

I just got a 10/22 Take Down and have nothing put problems with it jamming and not ejecting. Going to get to Volquartsen ejector, and some other upgrades and just do it myself. As others have said, YouTube. I hate sending guns back to the factory. Sorry to hear yours fell apart. Keep us posted and ignore the others.

My 10/22 was shipped with a defective firing pin. It did not strike the bullet properly and caused the failed to fire. I called Ruger and they wanted me to ship it to them on my dime. I am installed a new firing pin myself and paid for it myself. Ruger customer support is nowhere near Hi Point.

Field stripping all parts to the bone on a 10/22 can all be found on you tube. Pretty easy if you know how to follow directions and if youre handy with basic tools. But if you feel like sending it back to Ruger, thats fine too.

Fix it yourself with better parts if you can afford them.
My last 2 Rugers with problems came back from the factory torn to SH*T.A Red Label I bought new had vise jaw marks deep into the reciever.According to them with apologies they have to sub out some work,when they get busy.Well it went back the same day,with the same problem I sent it for in the first place.It came back the second time working,but with more scratches and gouges.I will respectfully say I own several of their guns as well as other manufacturers.I will not buy another from the Ruger company.
Interesting I have told so many people over the years that a 10-22 is the first gun a person should buy and keep the rest of their life.I still have the one I got when I turned 12 over 40 years ago.Lately at least every other one has gone bad almost immediately.Several with the problem you mentioned.

I tend to buy alot of parts from Midway USA or Brownells.They will have many options for aftermarket things.Like these other guys have said,Volquartsen makes good stuff.
Another outlet is the brand KIDD.Even a seasoned person could go crazy on their website buying 10-22 stuff.My friend just did the KIDD trigger,extractor and bolt in his new one.I shot it the other day and was surprised.I was able to hold groups about nickel sized at 50 yds.His is the tactical barreled model and we used the brick/bulk ammo.We had a inexpensive 3-9 scope on it.

A Volquartsen extractor is a whole lot better than the one from the factory.

If you're missing the plunger then you need one.

A Gunsmither toolbar will make the job a lot easier but is not a necessity. Personally I think it's $13 well spent.
