Needed lots of hand fitting
I had high hopes for this kit, as it appears to greatly enhance the look and feel of the 90/22 stock kit (over the standard plastic shroud). However, out of the bag from the factory, it was obvious that the adapter would not easily fit over the factory 10/22 front sight band. I had to remove a fair amount of metal from the inside of the adapter to finally make it fit. Even then, it's fair to say that it is now a permanent installation, as the adapter is so tight it may never come off. In the end, I still like the look and feel, but the adapter tolerances should be a bit more open to make installation easier.
[ HTA Response: Hello Eric and thank you for your business! Very sorry there was an issue with the fitment of the adapter. We were recently made aware of some changes Ruger has seemingly made with their barrel tolerances. We have offered this product for several years without issue, but in the past few weeks, we have been hearing similar stories. We are in the process of remaking the adapters with looser tolerances based on customer input and data on the size of their front sight post. All adapters sold after 1/1/2022 will be the updated design, reflecting changes we've seen made by Ruger. If you have any issues with the fitment of any of our products, always feel free to contact us and we will do whatever we can to remedy the issue from our end. Thank you for your business and feedback!]
