June 23, 2002, 12:00
I have been looking for information on how to strip the Ruger 10/22 semiauto bolt, but have not found a site or information about it. Does anyone have the info or a site they can direct me to? TIA.

Try this link, It should help.
I think you need a drift punch to push a plunger and remove the extractor.

From what I remember, you do not have to have a punch to remove the extractor seeing how I have blown mine off/out several times in the past. You just hold bolt tightly and push the extractor back into the bolt and cam it out of the slot. Be careful as spring and plunger will fly. Believe me, the 10/22 functions almost flawlessly WITHOUT an extractor. Ask me how I know.:)

I have also worn out a couple of firing pins to the point where the hit on the rim wasn't enough to set off the primer! Made em at home out of a flat piece of steel. Hardened em by heating to cherry red with mapp and oxy torch and dropping in oil. ( No comment on hardening from others here, please. To each his own) The home made ones wore down quicker of course but by then Ruger had managed to send new ones!:D
