I bought my grandson a 10/22 Ruger some time ago. If I don't shoot with him, hunt, trap, etc. he won't. So his gun is jamming during every clip that goes through it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Is it the factory 10 round mag or a 30 round mag by chance?

Sounds like a good cleaning, then about 200 rounds through it, then a good cleaning. Use good ammo . Doesn't have to be the 20 cents a shot ammo but don't get a 19 dollar brick either. If that doesn't work send it to ruger. You can mail a firearm if you are mailing to the manufacturer. Pretty good chance they will repair it at no charge

Have you tried different brands of ammo with the same results?

Check the spring in the mag. If it's weak it'll jam, but also a good cleaning and good ammo never hurts.

By jamming what exactly is it doing? Failing to eject? Failing to feed?

And you can take the mag apart and clean it too.

Change the spring tension of the mag maybe.

Take the mag apart and clean. Mine did the same thing, a good cleaning fixed it. Very easy to do and there's YouTube vids on it. Amazing how much grit gets into it.

If ya got it new how much ammo have you run through it? When I got one back in the 80's an old timer insisted that I run a whole brick through it first thing. That smooths out little imperfections in the machining that slows the mechanism down.
I would get an extra mag so one can be reloading while the other is shooting. Give the rifle & mag a good cleaning & lube & put a bunch of rounds down range. Then another good cleaning of course. Good luck!

Clean gun and magazine well and use quality ammo.not weak stuff or bulk ammo that has wildly varying velocities.There is rarely anything seriously wrong with them.

If you take the clip apart be sure to get all the shells out of it, Mine still had some shells way in there and instead of digging them out, I just took it apart and the thing went all over cause the spring was still wound up. I didn't find the metal top out of it til 6 weeks later, lol. There is a good illustration on you tube showing how to hook and wind the spring.

An old friend used to say " If you hunt with your kids you won't have to hunt for them uptown".

19 dollars a brick. Those days are gone. 6 months ago you could get good ammo at that price.

Shot it allot clean it allot. if after 1000 rounds if it still acts up send it to Ruger they have great service
