    I have a stock base-model 10/22 that has problems with FTE/FTF. It seems to be about the same with all magazines I've used (4 Ruger 10rd), and all ammunition that I've tried (Remington Golden Bullet & Yellowjacket, Federal Game-Shok). About 15% of the time it fails to eject, sometimes with a failure to feed at the same time.

    Last time I was at the range, one magazine was seeming like a winner with 3 full cycles without incident, but then it caught up with the other magazines over 2 more cycles.

    Should I send it off to Ruger? Replace the extractor? Ditch the Ruger magazines? Burn it in anger? Damn thing is approaching tack driver status at 50 yards, but this jamming is busting up my rhythm...

    The Golden Bullet and Game-Shok are both labeled as being "high-velocity." The Yellowjacket is classified as "hyper-velocity" and its accuracy was all over the map relative to the other two.

    I bought it several months ago and have put less than 1000 rounds through it.

    have you taken the barrel out or untightened the retaining block for it before?

    1.) Spin a (lubricated) copper brush in the chamber a few times
    2.) Disassemble and clean your mags thoroughly
    3.) Minimags dude. 40gr Minimags.

    Replace all the internals with VQ parts and get a Weaponcraft bolt buffer. It's just tired of being "plain".

    I added a scope Friday. Think that's enough to appease it for a while?

    Have you even opened your 10/22 up? They recommend not messing with the trigger assembly (if you don't have any knowledge you might not want to) and you can see how cheap the parts are. Before any mods I filed a few parts down (extractor was horrible) and it seemed to do better. It's a very cheaply made rifle at a cheap price. Unless you try "fixing" it yourself you're better off replacing a lot of it and using a stock 10/22 as a "base"

    I'm thinking of getting another one. I've messed with everything but the trigger assembly (trigger works fine for me) and spent about $50 so far on parts. I just can't justify spending more money on it. I should just get another one :hs: I don't want to replace the bolt and find out I messed up my receiver. everything looks fine when I take mine apart but it just won't cycle all the way.

    As long as you pay attention when you take it apart it's pretty eas to get back together,trigger parts included. It's about time you learned how the trigger works anyways.

    Yea the only thing in the trigger guard on the 10/22 that *might* cause some confusion is the bolt lock spring. Just look at how it's put together before you take it apart and you'll be fine.

    mine had fte, called "stove piping", b/c when i took the barrel retaining block off to remove the barrel for cleaning. i didnt get the barrel lined back up correctly so it was not ejecting correctly.

    .22 High velocity ammo just means it's faster than the sound barrier. high velocity is what most .22 ammo is, then there's subsonic and super high velocity like CCI Stingers.

    Not yet. On the list before I contact Ruger or swap parts. Next range day is about a week out at the earliest.
