Default 10/22 bolt hold open

Just got a ruger 10/22. I pulled out the bolt hold open lever and ground out the inside of the heart so it was flat. Put everything back together and I still have to hit the little lever to release the bolt. Any ideas what I did wrong or didn't do?

I may be wrong but i thought that you had to add a spring to get the lever to drop out of the way.

Not sure. I watched a how to video and that's all they did to mod it. Maybe I missed something.

It is my understanding that it needs to be ground down with a slight curve, not flat.

The real 10/22 experts are at www.rimfirecentral.com

They can help I am sure.

So I went back in and ground just a hair more to give it a D shape. Works perfect now, thanks for the help.

I would love a good picture. That is my one complaint on the 10/22. That little bigger can be a pita to operate.
