    I have a 10/22 that has an issue with light primer strikes. I'm wondering if we have any local gunsmiths with experience on the 10/22 platform. I'd like to have the bolt radiused plus verify tolerances. I live in the Hillsboro/Beaverton area.

    Thanks,
    Nate

    No idea. I'd clean the heck out of it though.. .22's are filthy little things.

    New volquartzen firing pin is worth trying first. Much less than a trip to the smith and designed to fix this kind of problem.

    You could probably get a new rifle for the price of anything. lol.. of course it could never be because it's dirty and the ammo is puke?

    Dave does great trigger work. He recommends https://sites.google.com/site/quesplace/ as the place to send your bolt. Que is reliable and a gentleman. Definitely worth the $35 to have your bolt tuned.

    Most likely just needs a thorough deep cleaning.

    Just so happens I had both these gentlemen work over my 10-22. Que did a fantastic job blueprinting the bolt, and David out at Brimstone did the trigger group and even fitted my new barrel to the receiver for me. Can't go wrong there; I'm very pleased with the work done by both.

    Yep, me too. I also had Que cut down and thread the barrel with the Sparrow thread profile for my suppressor.

    I posted a LF Gunsmith question in the gunsmithing subsection a week or so ago; never got a response (it's too quiet over there).

    Hope you don't mind me piggybacking.

    Looking to just get my barrel cut down and crowned on my new Tikka hunting rifle. Looking for something shorter and handier.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
