    Yes, shooting clean burning ammo and with copper plated bullets makes allot of difference. But if possible, stay away for cheaper bulk ammo for semi-autos only. I understand that's not always a problem, but some weapons are just like a woman, finicky.

    I bought a Kidd extractor, bolt buffer, bolt release, and cocking assembly. Not too difficult to install and the results have been amazing. No more jams my Ruger 10/22 operates smoother and quiter. I am not supporting any paticular parts maker, just saying what worked for me.

    I have 2 10/22's, one I bought in 1992. I have never had any problem with it. I haven't cleaned it except for a bore snake in abt 6 years. The only .22 I have had trouble with was a Savage MKII failing to eject. It was caused by the Wolf lube building on the extracter. Clean ed the bolt face & it has never had any problem since.

    I have 2 10/22's that were purchased in the early '70s never had any problems with ejecting except when using shot shells then have to cycle manually.. ( also shorts) and lots of different brands, but other wise never any problems with them, and they have had lotsss of use, kids, grandkids,great grandkids and their friends. must be a problem with the later models ??

    I had a similar issue this past year and posted a bunch on it. i didn't find this thread, but had the same issue with the magazines. for my 10/22 it was a two-fold problem. made the magazine mods and the spent brass still dropped onto the magazine and sometimes would fail to full eject. then dropped in a new extractor and it worked. i did try one of my mags that hadn't been moded yet and still had some eject issues but they were greatly reduced.

    so, like i stated, it took two mods to fix my problem

    I've probably fired 5k rounds through my 10/22 at this point. I've had this happen (bolt catches an empty casing on the way out) maybe 6-8 times total. Something like 75% federal bulk and 25% mixed Aguila hypervelocitys. All through either the original black 10-round factory mag or 2 clear anniversary 10 round factory mags. I just figured it was a sheer lucky catch by the bolt of a spent casing that just happened to box around the port on the way out. Very interesting to hear it's a real problem on some.
