Cracked Ruger 10/22 receiver
Upon dis-assembly and cleaning of a friend’s 10/22, I found a crack in the receiver, just aft of the lower side of the ejection port.
I wonder what has caused this damage to happen. Perhaps years of shooting suppressed with a steel buffer? The buffer pin holes in the receiver are larger than the ones in a newer receiver, indicating battering of the pin inside the receiver.
I will try and contact Ruger in the next few days, and see what they say. They may be able to repair it. I’ve heard stories of Ruger’s fabulous customer service. I may find out for myself soon!
