"Guardian" Bolt Release Plate for 10/22


At a glance:

  • Allows simple and automatic release of the bolt mechanism
  • Black Oxide finish for super tough durability
  • Drop in part: easy to install 


The 10/22® is a legendary rifle but just like any other gun, it has its own annoyances. Releasing the bolt on a factory original Ruger® 10/22® requires the operator to manipulate the bolt lock with one hand while releasing the bolt with the other.

The TANDEMKROSS Guardian Bolt Release Plate eliminates this manual and tedious step. Once installed it enables the operator to release the bolt in an intuitive way by pulling back slightly on the bolt handle and the bolt simply releases. This part is a must have for any serious 10/22® owner.


Don't forget, all TANDEMKROSS products are Made in the USA and come with a LIFETIME guarantee!

    A needed part for my Ruger 10/22

    It's really nice to use the guardian bolt release plate instead of the original one. This really simplifies the manipulations of the bolt.

    Worth a few bucks to be able to release the bolt on my 10/22 without fiddling with the standard bolt release. 10/10

    It Works!

    I put this plate in a BX trigger and I wondered how it worked because it didn t look much different than the stock plate. After a good receiver cleaning and multiple mods, I finally got it back together and got to try it out. It definitely works. No more fiddling with the bolt locking lever to release the bolt! :)

    Great upgrade at reasonable cost WAY better than the factory bolt release. Once you have one, you'll want it on all your 10-22's
