    I've had a takedown 10/22 for awhile decided to fire it today. Its brand new no upgrades, haven't cleaned or taken apart.
    Tried some golden bullets and fired a round and the second round chambered, but trigger didn't reset. Figured it was the ammo then tried some federal I
    Had and same thing. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

    Yeah just didn't know if it was something minor I may have been overlooking.

    Do you know how to take apart a 10/22 trigger? Its incredibly simple and I bet you could find out whats wrong. It could be the trigger disconnect isn't on right or maybe the spring is missing. Thats what it sounds like to me.

    I 2nd this. Could also be a surface not exactly smooth and a lil sandpaper might fix it.

    Do a basic field strip cleaning and try again. If problem persists, send it back as a warranty issue.

    Thanks fellas I'll take the trigger apart and go from there. Its just kind of a pain to send it back. If that doesn't work ill have no choice.

    if you send it in, I think ruger usually sends a free mag to you along with the gun when it is returned to you (so I've heard). So if anything, you'll be getting a free BX-25 mag perhaps
