I just brought a brand new 10/22. Was going to take it to the range tomorrow to try it out. I get it apart, clean it, and put it back together. Come to find out the trigger will not release the hammer. I could not dry fire it at the store due to a trigger guard. The safety button is real loose, and drifts to the fire side. It seems like it wants to come out on that side. Is there anything I can do to fixed it without sending it back to Ruger? The gunsmith I use is closed untill monday. Need help.

Did you fully disassemble the trigger group/assembly?

Sounds like you are missing the little spring under the safety . DID you take the trigger completely apart?

Call and Send the trigger group into Ruger if you don't know how to fix.

No i didn't take the trigger apart. Just out to clean the receicer and bolt.

Hmm, did any pins fall out?

If not, you will want to call Ruger on Monday and see if they can trouble shoot it with you and see if you have to go any farther than a phone call.

Did you get it fixed? Where in Texas are you located?

Still waiting to hear back from Ruger if I need a RMA number or anything before I send it back. I sent them a e-mail friday afternoon.I am in Houston.

Sorry in advance for the hijack.

I've seen a lot of places where taking the trigger group apart seems like it is suggested as a terrible thing to do. Do people have a lot of problems with reassembling the trigger group, or is it just the possibility of losing parts?

Try rotating the safety 180'. This happend to me and that was the fix.

Too bad; I'm in DFW and could have probably helped you get it back together without having to ship it off to Ruger...
