************************************** *Bolt Shims* How Does a Bolt
Shim Work? The actual head space is in the recessed face of the bolt. Shimming between
the two bolt halves ensures the bolt is up tight against the breech. If the bolt isnt up tight against the breech it tends
to cause misfires and light strikes. If your getting misfires and light strikes shimming the bolt is a good way to solve it. - Jerry M.

Ruger 77/22 77/17 Bolt Shim
Installation Installing bolt shims requires fitting by hand, with the bolt installed, not measurement
with the bolt out. You will need a 4 Pak to properly fit a rifle. Start with the thinnest shim, (.002")
and install, then check to see how your bolt closes. As long as it continues to close normally, continue to
add shims .001" at a time, stacking as necessary. When you have installed enough shims that the bolt just
begins to be hard to close, remove .001" so it closes normally or just (ever-so) slightly tighter than
normal. If you have to force or put undue stress on your bolt to close it, you should reduce the number of shims.
Bolt Shims have in many instances cured light strikes. Will they help with Accuracy? Don't take my word
for it, read the Customer Reviews at the bottom of this page or on our Reviews Page.

Hello Lance, I bought a Ruger 77-44 back in 1997. I
put on a nice Leupold scope and went to the shooting range with several of my favorite loads. It shot a 12", pie plate
size group at 100 yards. I was very disappointed, so I cleaned it up and took it home and stuffed it in the very back of
my vault.(out of sight, out of mind). I have two revolvers that will out shoot this rifle with open sights. Several years
later, I took it out and tried several more "favorite loads". It shot a nice 12" group. I then took it to
my local gunsmith and had it pillar bedded and crowned and everything checked out. Back to the range for yet another nice
12" group. I was beyond disappointed. So, back to the very back of the vault. One day I was sitting at my computer and I put into Google, "Why won't my Ruger 77-44 shoot? I started
reading and that is how I found you. I ordered the bolt shims and springs and installed them right along with your video.
Then back to the range with my favorite loads, and WOW, was I surprised. I am sending you my best group target on that day.
My group went from a pie plate to a tennis ball with your parts. Thank You for the excellent parts, video, research and
information. - Scott
Hi Mr. Shively, I meant to write you much sooner than
this, but better late than never? I had to tell you that the Ruger 77/22 Bolt Shims you sold me were amazing. The accuracy
improvement was stunning. Who knew that for $10, I could improve the gun so much!? I have been trying to get this 77/22 to
shoot as well as my 10/22 for years now. Different stock, bedding job, Shilen bull barrel and still, my 10/22 with 'cheap'
Butler Creek barrel would out-shoot it. It was frustrating! Not anymore. The shims you sell are miracle workers. Once I
got the right combo in the bolt, accuracy became a '1 hole' affair. The Ruger 77/22 now shoots any ammo I put into
it much better than before, and with genuine target ammo (Wolf Target Match), it just rips one ragged hole at 50 yards if
I do my part. With the 'left-over' shims, I fixed up my sons 77/22, too, and it was the same effect. In his gun,
groups were cut in HALF from what they were! Amazing. Thank you so much for making a great product at a very affordable
price. Your shims make such a big difference. You helped me "love" my rifle again! Sincerely, - Michael in
I recently received a Ruger 77/22 in .22 Hornet
after waiting almost 6 months for it. It gave pretty good patterns, not quite full choke, more like modified.
No matter what I did it wouldn’t do any better. In addition to terrible grouping, somewhere along the way while shooting
my bullet impacts would suddenly start marching up the target to the northeast. In one case the string measured at
least a foot and a half. It may have been more but the last two shots were off the target board. I went
online and read that quite a few people were having trouble getting the 77/22 to group and the recommendation was shimming
between the front and rear of the bolt. Your address was given so I ordered a set. I put in a .003" shim
and got some improvement but not enough to crow about. I decided simply putting in a shim without testing wouldn’t
do it. I removed the .003" shim and put in a .004" and a .002" to equal .006". The bolt was
definitely tighter! I could close it, but it didn’t feel right. I took out those shims and put in a
.005". Eureka! The bolt closed snugly. Next trip to the range got me groups that were worthy of the
Hornet! And no more marching to the northeast. Your shims work! Thanks. Archie M. Fort Walton Beach,
Lance, Received the order today and am very satisfied.
Actually better quality than expected. I had been searching for a very long time for pre-made shims for the Ruger
77/22 Hornet when another member at http://rugerforum.net/ posted your site address with high recommendations. Next
time I'm in that forum I'll certainly endorse his recommendation. Thanks for a great product
- Jerry in OK
Lance I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know your shims arrived and I am more than pleased with
the results. I shimmed the bolt on my Ruger 77/22 and the preliminary tests have been a reduction in group sizes approximately 25 to 30%. Thank you so much for a quality product and the prompt shipping was a nice surprise.
I will certainly be recommending your product! Norm in Saskatchewan, Canada
My son and I have several 77/22's My 22 hornet would not shoot at all, I tried
different loads, different bullets, nothing worked. My son told me about reading on a Ruger forum about your product
. I put .007" in the hornet, not only does it shoot great one hole at 75 yards but I am also not having
the base come off the case after two reloads . Now I am ordering for friends with the same problem .

Target Sear Review I
just got back from the range today after installing a couple of upgrades to my Ruger 77/44. I purchased and installed
a Target Sear Kit and Trigger Shims from www.TriggerShims.com It made a huge difference taking the pull from about
6 lbs. to a crisp break around 1.5 pounds. It was very easy to install and there are videos on the web site listed to help.
I have another 77/44 I installed a Rifle Basix replacement trigger on a few years back.... I think the Volquartsen Target
Sear install is better at half the price. I ordered it on Sunday and got it today... Great service. Mike S. in Indiana
