Correct. It was cleaned, same thing. It was taken to a gunsmith, same thing. You have to stick your finger in back of the trigger to push it out to get it to reset. Then it will fire. And do it again......

You know, I'd be inclined to try big shrek's suggestion first. Get a new trigger reset spring. Maybe see if there is one slightly stronger. How much could that cost? Unfortunately, I may not be able to try this out myself, I don't really have access to the gun. But I will ask.

I believe I have figured this problem out. The problem is in the Butler Creek stock. It appears that the design allows the the trigger pivot pin to disengage enough that the trigger will not totally reset. I spent an hour at the range today going from original stock to the Butler Creek stock. Each time with the Butler Creek stock after a magazine or two the reset problem would start. I took the stock off and the trigger pivot pin would be out on the right side. Now I need to figure out a fix. Or maybe Butler Creek needs to figure this out.

Ah, yeah, I think it should be BC that takes responsibility here. Good job figuring that one out. Although it's been so long since I have had my hands on the 10/22, I cannot visualize what you are talking about. Maybe some pics? How could a stock possibly force a pin out that is contained within the receiver? I'm assuming it it spanning the receiver from one side to the other, and flush with both? You can be rest assured that when my uncle gets back from his current business trip, I will be bugging him to either sell me the gun, or at least let me fiddle with it. As far as I'm aware, the problem was never solved....

Correct the trigger pivot pin is directly above the trigger and goes all the way through the receiver.

lets see you have a aluminin reciever and you torque it down into a plastic stock and it screws up then you put it back in a wood stock and its ok?think about it the recerver is distorting just enough to screw it up

What difference would it make if you put it in a plastic or wood stock? People re-stock their guns all the time with no trouble, correct? Something tells me if you are screwing it down that tight to the stock, enough to distort the receiver, bigger issues would show up and sooner than this problem.

I am still interested in why a slight shift in this pin side to side would cause this problem.

tonydewar, do you mean the stock is distorting? As in you tighten the screws forcing the sides of the stock to belly out just enough to allow the pin to move? Crap, I wish I had the gun in front of me.....
