Ruger American Rifle
Bolt Action Rifle Trigger Shims
Sporting the Latest Engineering Improvements from Ruger including a Cold Hammer Forged Barrel, One Piece Three Lug Bolt, Integral Bedding Block System to Free-Float the Barrel for Outstanding Accuracy, and a Marksman Adjustable Trigger, the Ruger American Rifle was a hit with working men from day one!
Can you improve on this fine Rifle?
I think a set of TriggerShims Brand Shims can Certainly Help!!
But don't take my word for it, read this unsolicited Testimonial;
Yet again I am a very impressed customer.
I was given a Ruger American Rimfire by my sons and wife for Father's Day 2 years ago and I just couldn't get the trigger "just right". Now, I had to keep this rifle because it was given to me as a gift - so I worked and worked on the trigger, polishing until the trigger and sear were mirrors - but still it was gritty and inconsistent.
Then, I stumbled across your kit and video and $15 and about 30 minutes later - I had the trigger I always wanted and knew the Ruger had hiding in there somewhere.
My Ruger had .015 slop / play, so I had to use two shims to get .013 and I put it together per your video instructions - and put the bolt in and closed my eyes and ..... FANTASTIC!
Gone is the grit and creep and the trigger is now consistent and I can't be happier.
Thank you for making such a great product at a fantastic price point.
I remain a loyal customer -

Ruger American Rifle Bolt Shims
Ruger American Rimfire Rifle Bolt Shims
How does a Rimfire 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 snug against the breech. If the bolt has excessive clearance at the breech it tends to cause misfires and light strikes.
When the bolt action rifle’s bolt locking surfaces become worn increases in the headspace can cause light firing pin strikes, poor ignition (misfires), looseness of the bolt, and loss of accuracy.
Factory fitting of the barrel into the receiver can also leave excess clearance between the bolt and breech.
Excessive headspace causes the bolt to feel loose.
Shims can also Used for Adjusting after Re-Barreling
If you are getting misfires and light strikes shimming the bolt may be a good way to solve it.
