Ruger 10/22 TD: Barrel Mushrooming problem?
I'm very interested this slick takedown version of Ruger's venerable 10/22. Cabelas will be selling them for $279.99 on Black Friday this year, in case anyone is interested.
But I've been picking up some chatter lately that after even moderate round counts, some users are reporting that the bolt begins the peen the face of the barrel, causing it to mushroom and make the rifle hard (or even impossible) to break down. The thinking is that the this portion of the barrel wasn't properly tempered.
Anyone know anything about this? Any sense if Ruger is doing/has done anything to address this issue?
I really like the idea of this little .22LR package and it's gotten generally favorable reviews. But if it essentially turns into non-break down model after a few thousand rounds, I'll just buy the regular model and save $80 - $100.

If the barrel is peening from the bolt, then it's something grossly out of spec. It may be that the users are tightening the system up too much.

I have one. This last weekend, my son and I took it out and put about 300 rounds through it. (I'm not sure of the total round count, but the gun is pretty new.)
When I disassembled it, I noticed it took a bit more effort, and then I found a very slight ridge on the face of the barrel that wasn't there before.
Haven't had time to investigate further, but there is something up.

Just curious, but when do you actually buy the gun? I'm trying to figure out if this is wide spread enough that Ruger has made a change in their manufacturing process.

I might save the money and get a original 10/22. I work at the Maine scarborough and Ive heard some things about the takedown. Im sure you've heard the sight problems, the front sight on some of the models is bent, making accuracy alittle wary.

I've had a couple 10/22s and currently have the TALO-distributed version with walnut, stainless barrel, Ruger emblem in stock and fish-scale checkering. Nice looking gun. Nice shooter. Have a Nikon 4X Pro Staff scope on it. It will groove 'em in.
But, for pure animal-like appetite for more (and any) rounds and very decent accuracy, I love my S&W MP 15-22. That little sucker has a nicer trigger than the 10/22 and if it is less accurate, it's by a pubic hair.
Two different beasts, I suppose. But my 10/22 hasn't been getting out much lately.

I have one... It shoots great after I changed the trigger assembly with a Hornet trigger assembly. The stock trigger was too gritty. Not like the 10-22 I've had since the late eighties.
