Thanks much for this instruct-able! Got a few aftermarket mods for my gun and needed some help getting it back together. Your guide helped where my memory failed.

Pretty good description, certainly much better than the drawing that comes with the manual.  I did it fairly quickly.  I think you may need to clarify how to put the hammer spring in... i knew intuitively to put it under the bolt pin and align the bent part with the bolt lock, but it might help others to fully explain it.  I didn't see where you were supposed to put the magazine lock pin back in place, but it's fairly easy to do at the end. 

I'd give it a 9/10

I don't like that I had to register to see the close-up pictures, but I guess that comes with the territory.  Only I had everything disassembled at that point so I had little choice but to register to figure out how to put it back together!

 Thank you very very much for adding this.  I bought my first gun, a Ruger 10/22 Carbonite Rifle, and was taking it apart to learn how it works - including the trigger. After hours of googling and youtubing, couldn't find a very good video.  This is perfect - my fault for not checking Instructibles.com first :)

Thanks much mate!
