Also, I forgot to mention: when I was cycling the bolt by hand, I noticed that there seemed to be a fair amount of clearance between the bolt and receiver. Given that, if I pushed the bolt over toward the "ejector side" of the receiver while cycling, the shell would easily eject. The receiver does not "look" worn, per se, but I again, I'm no gunsmith and haven't looked at many of these parts.

Thanks again.


Understand that ordinance has some of the sloppyist fits of almost any machinery. It has to to assure that it will run even when dirty. Ever shake a 1911? If it doesn't rattle, I'm a little suspect of the gun. That rattle is why they run so reliably.

Your observation of your bolt/receiver and the fact that if you push the bolt towards the ejector and the case ejects confirms in my mind that the extractor is not fit proper. You're loading the extractor hook against the case when you push the bolt towards the ejector, making it hold the case tighter than it normal does.

I fit the extractor on every 10-22 I sell, along with the firing pin. I take the extractor and clamp it hook up in a small vice, making sure the space between the hook and lug clears the jaws of the vice. Using a small flat file I remove material at a slight angle, taking more off at the hook end and practically nothing at the lug end. Take off about the thickness of a business card, that's about 0.010". That's a good start.

Install the extractor back in the bolt and try putting a cartridge case up under it again. You should see the extractor move out and the case should snap up in place with some 'authority'. You can feel the click when the hook goes over center of the case.

As a caution, when you take the bolt apart, place it in a large plastic bag. The springs can find hiding places you never will. Don't ask me how I know this. :mrgreen:

Had to read that several times to realize you were taking material off the "arm" between hook and lug..... Pictures may help those that can't visualize what you are doing there.

All I can get is dial-up out where I live. Pictures and you-tube are a waste of time. A 2 minute video takes something like 3 hours to down load!

Over the years my 10/22 would seem to not wanna kick 'em out consistently. I bought and installed a volquartsen extractor and have not had a problem since. I used to think it was the mag i was using. good luck

OK, so here's what's happening (the bolt is spit-shine clean):

I placed the safety on & removed the clip, held the gun vertical & muzzle up so that I could view the operation of the bolt. Loaded a round in the chamber and hand-cycled the bolt. The extractor pulled the shell back, the ejector however only very slightly contacted the the edge of the shell. Therefore, the shell is not hit with enough force in order to eject it out the port. The ejector certainly LOOKS OK but then, I'm not a gunsmith.

Next round of advice?


That ejector is the secondary ejector, the primary is part of the magazine. That's the one that counts when you're shooting the gun. I'd install a VQ extractor, get a new factory magazine, and get a new secondary ejector from Brownells (780-010-044WB Ejector Mfr Part: B80). If that doesn't cure it I'd change the ammo.

Exactly what I posted before. The extractor does not pull the round out when you fire the round. The round is pushed out by the expanding gases from the powder. All the extractor does is hold the cartridge case tightly to the bolt face until the bolt recoils back far enough for the case to be hit by the ejector and kicked out the ejection port. From your description, the extractor IS NOT holding the case tight to the face of the bolt.


Douglas, just wanted you to know that I finally got around to following your directive above. I did it and it worked exactly as you said. Filing a small amount off the extractor and no need to replace it. Problem completely solved. Thanks again for your input.
