Clip is original equipment, your standard 10 shot clip. How can I "tighten up" the spring inside the clip. It isn't feeding the shells with much force.

Thanks.

You have a clip on your rifle? What do you clip it to?

Your 10-22 doesn't have a clip



You can take apart your magazine and see if you can wind up the spring more

I think the 10/22 comes with a 10 shot rotary magazine. All of them I have seen did.

How do you take it apart? Doesn't seem like it comes apart.

you can easly take them apart and tighten the spring we do it to ours all the time.

Go to rimfirecentral.com, look around, there's a tutorial on 10-22 magazine assembly.

You take it apart with the allen cap screw. Clean it up and tighten it for about 8 flats of the hex nut. Worked for me!!

Get a new one if you want but you will still have to learn to take them apart so you might as well fix the one you have. Rimfirecentral is helpful. It's pretty easy to figure out even without it though, it takes a little finese to get it tight, the nut on the back side fits into a recess, you have to back it out of that recess and turn it then put it in the recess and tighten the allen head bolt up, or something like that.

If you get the whole shabang apart you have to make sure the ramp and everything is lined up right when you put it all back again. Here's where it helps to have more than one, when it is lined up right the pieces fit together easy.

I know that's not really much help but I'm going from memory, rimfirecentral is a really great place though. It will help you turn that 10/22 into a real moneypit!!

You have been around here for over 4 years and you still call a magazine a clip and cartridge ammunition a shell?

Thanks for the tips and schooling.

Everytime someone calls a magazine a clip, I go out and kill a kitten.

Never call a magazine a clip.

Back in the day, I was told (by an NRA instructor) that clips fully fit inside the weapon (pistols & some rifles), and magazines pwere external (like a tubular magazine on a Marlin or Winnie autoloading .22).

Years later I learned my earlier knowledge was worthless.....

Unless you're doing it to see how they work.

Knowledge rocks.

My 10/22 doesn't use clips. It uses bobby-pins.

I really should have a couple extra mags for the rifle, however, I just gotta get the thing apart and see how it works. If I'm on my game, I won't be able to get it back together (like most things I take apart ), but I will have fun taking it apart.
