Whitewolf,I have read on another forum of another person had the same issue with his and it had to be sent back to the factory and they sent him a new gun. It has to do with the trigger/safety setup in the trigger assembly.

Now that makes more sense to me. A pin or a spring isn't in the right spot or assembled correctly. Send it back to the factory through your dealer, or have your dealer swap you out and let them worry about the warranty.

Sorry for being so late to post, it sounds like either the trigger isn't returning to forward position, or the hammer isn't staying cocked, and following the bolt forward. Either condition is virtually unheard of in factory, untouched rifles. In fact, I've never even heard of it happening in an factory stock rifle.

Just got a brand new 1022 and experienced the same problem. Called Ruger and they said to ship it back to them.
