Default Ruger 10/22 last round bolt hold open..

Ok guys.. I have seen a kit for a last round bolt hold open system for the 10/22... BUT... I think you have to buy the kit and use special mags from that point on to have the hold open work.. I did the auto bolt release where you grind it out with a dremel and that is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.. It is WAAAAY better with that.. But now I want the bolt hold open for an empty mag. i want to know if there is anything I can do to modify what I have to make it work, or if the kit is the only way or what...

pretty sure that is either the kit, or keep a count on rounds fired and reload on the last round so it cycles the new mag.

Is it really that big of a deal to pull back the bolt?

ha no.. Is it really that difficult to switch out 10 round magazines more often than 15 or 20 or 25 round magazines? Not really... But just like everything else.. It would be nice..

You know the answer...get 50 round mags! :angel:

But I wish there was a LRHO too...that whole "don't dry fire a rimfire" thing makes me flinch every time I mis-count...which is every 10-25 rounds. :cantlook:

my 10/22 has over 130,000 rounds fired and id hate to guess the number of dry fires. probably in the thousands. ive never replaced the firing pin.

LRHO - i removed mine entirely years ago. i tired of tinkering with it trying to make it work right. the LRHO kits are finicky to say teh least, besides requiring special mags. i never put the factory bolt lock back in cause i never used it anyway.

"Don't dry fire a rimfire" only applies to guns that have a firing pin that extends past the breechface when dry fired. This lets the pin hit the edge of the chamber, peening it into the opening and causing failures to feed and extract. A common problem in the "bad old days". Designs like the Ruger 10/22 have a limiter pin that prevents the FP from extending past the breechface, so you can dry fire it without damaging the chamber. Their semi auto .22 pistols have the same feature.

True...but I have a few guns from those days, so it still makes me cringe. :cantlook:
