Bought a brand new 4935 Takedown.

I have tried to separate the Receiver from the buttstock and have followed the instruction to no avail. I removed the takedown screen but it still will not separate. It's like something else is holding it in place.

Any ideas on how to would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and be safe.

This is a 10/22 takedown?

You putting the safety in the “center” so it clears both sides of the stock? That’s how it works on the non-takedown models.

Tell us more about exactly the procedures you’re doing.

Welcome to the forum too.

EDIT to add: Ruger also has “Tech Tips” videos on their web site. Search there or on You Tube.

I removed the takedown screw and centered the safety.

But there seems like it does not want to move at all.

Couple gentle taps from a rubber mallet might be needed the first time any 10/22 is removed from the stock.
