I have also modified each by radiusing the rear ventral bolts, polishing the bolts, and all but one of the little beauties have the Volquartsen claw as extractors.
Anyhow, those 1022s have been invaluable in my NRA instruction and teaching my kids and grandkids to shoot.
I have two of the rifles in the .920 bbl and can shoot flies off the targets with confidence at 25 yds.
Are the .920 barrels factory target barrels, or aftermarket ? I've been considering a new target model with the hammer-forged barrel. I didn't know they actually used part of the mag as the ejector. That's different. I've owned a few 10-22's and the last one I had did jam alot and I tried a different extractor, different mag's, and a ton of different ammo types. Got rid of it out of frustration.
