Hello, can send a Luger blueprint for me thank you 534395546 @qq.com

My rear receiver pin is stuck. I dont know why I can hit it with punches all day and it will not move from either side. Any advice?

I used one of these to plink at cans over the holidays while visitng my in-laws. It was nice, but had occasional feed problems

Were you using the factory clips? I know that many aftermarket clips are notorious for not feeding well.
I'm not sure if they were aftermarket or not. They weren't the big 30 round ramlines. They were just 10 shots each. Unfortunately I don't recall the markings on the clips. It only happened 3 times, so it didn't suck too much fun out of the day.
If the clips can be disassembled you can tweak the spring tension. Sometimes it isn't the clips fault at all. When a barrel is taken off the receiver for cleaning and not re-aligned properly when it is replaced it causes feed issues too. There are many videos and instructions out there for both repairs.

Thanks for the very informative instructions. Your scope is the same with the other information i got from Ruger 10/22 Accessories sites Ruger 10/22 Accessories
Heh, I think I have that exact same cleaning kit and stand, and possibly the same scope as on your rifle.  Well written instructions.
