    Great addition for 10/22, makes action so much easier to use. I almost forget that it is there compared to struggling with the Ruger original small lever keeper.

    Quick install,out of the way and much better for my old hands to operate. Will be on most of my 10/22's soon.

    Solid upgrade to any 10/22

    Posted by B on 20th Jul 2023

    Really enjoying TK's upgrades on my Ruger 10/22 charger. The machining is quality and the installation videos are top notch. Never really delved into the innards of the firearm before but they made it a breeze. I do wish they could figure out a way to make this ambidextrous, but hopefully that's something that happens in the future so I can throw more money at them. :) Highly recommend using this part rather than trying to grind the stock bolt lock.

    Easy to install- took all of 5 minutes. works great. Should have ordered for all my 10/22's at once, now I have to wait again!

    Love it. No idea why Ruger doesn't do this from the factory. Good video made it easy to install myself. would recommend, and would purchase again.

    This piece was easy and quick to install. Sure it better than fighting with the original bolt locking system.

    Makes it easier to manually hold the bolt open. Looks nice too. Easily unscrew the red knob and the stock separates from the receiver for maintenance
