Uh oh.....

So I'm selling my old 10/22 to a buddy of mine, and i'd been having some problems with it not ejecting shells properly. I decided that since I've put roughly 20,000 shots through it without a teardown it probably just needed a little cleaning. Well, after tearing it down, I can't get it back together!!! Anyone know of a reasonable shop in the metro? I live in plymouth and work in Vadnais Heights, so pretty much anywhere in the northern half of the metro is on my way home from work.

Bill's gun shop in Robbinsdale. I have no first hand experience so I am just assuming they could do it.

So you're selling your buddy a gun that doesn't function properly? Does he know this?

Simon's on Old Highway 10 (Spring Lake park I think). They are in-between 35W and 65. I've had a couple guns fixed there. I thought they were pretty reasonable.

Yeah, he knows it needs some repairs.

What's reasonable? Do you think we're talking $20? $100? I sold him the gun for $100, and it'd really stink if I had to spend all I made on it just to fix my oops!

If it's simple maybe $20-25$ plus some parts? I've had them fix a do-hickee on my shotgun right on the counter and all they charged me for was the $5 part.

fish, have you looked online for the schematics and how to take it apart and put it back together? I remember having problems with the 10/22 I took apart and I found the needed information on rimfirecentral

If you have all the parts, I have faith you can put it back together.....

I would, but the only internet access I have is at work and any site related to weapons is blocked.

I second these guys. They know their stuff. I had an gun that was giving me some grief. Fixed it on the spot while I sat there and the price couldn't be beat. I had to buy something else in the store just so I didn't feel bad. Store is not much to look at but the service can't be beat.

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
