I recently installed a Butler Creek bull barrel and stock on my otherwise plain jane 10/22 plinker and sometimes it won't extract (about one in ten). Extractor notch on barrel is lined up with extractor on bolt. Gun seems to run fine, just every now and then won't extract. Any help?

Sorry not really ejection problem...EXTRACTION problem

The chamber in the BC barrel is likely a match chamber so those chambers are a little tight. If it is not ejecting unfired ammo it is because the bullet is being jammed into the rifling and is a common problem with match chambers and you will need to switch ammo to get ejection of loaded rounds.
If it is doing this with fired ammo more than likely all you need is a new extractor. I bought two used 10-22s for rebuilds and both would fail to extract with their new barrels (I did not try them until after the build so I do not know how they functioned before the build). A Volquartsen Exact Edge extractor and spring fixed both rifles and it is a 5 minute fix.

Big Bore...thanks, it was a used plinker when I picked it up, will try your fix, what ammo do you recommend? While it is just a plinker to pop turtles and squirrels with, I would like it to run when I press the trigger.

check out weaponkraft.com

they sell the exact edge extractor as a package with their famous buffer. does wonders!

i had the same problem on my 10/22, lined up the notch so it was perfectly center and that helped for a bit. but the volquartsen ee did the job.

i have a 20" ss fluted butler creek bbl. that will do sub-moa with federal champions and hold moa all day long with that ammo. even after a few bricks!

All, THX for the speedy feedback, ordered the new Volquartsen extractor today, will update.

Got Volquartsen extractor and spring in last night and rifle still fails to extract when cycling, I think it's 1) tight chamber BigBore mentioned or 2) crappy ammo he also mentioned (that I have, trust me, it's crappy). Should I try several different brands of .22 and see which one my plinker likes best?

hey je,
i developed extraction probs in my stock 10/22 when the bbl started to droop excessively.... i shimmed the bbl tenon into the reciever, and also epoxy bedded the bbl to the reciever extension... this helped mine immensely.....also, i reworked the extractor to properly fit/hold a case against the bolt face..... the only probs i ever have now are w/ the 60gr aguilla loads,the will sometimes flip in the reciever and get jammed...........

i'd also check the bbl tenon face around the chamber....i've seen some .22s that got a ding in the edge of the chamber from a long firing pin striking the bbl....if you've got one of those, you can very carefully stone it out, or get it faced off and rechambered......

good luck, and keep us posted on this

I just built a custom 10/22 this summer. I added a PC extractor and still had eject problems. I replaced the guid rod assembly with one from VQ , and that fixed the problem. Hope this helps.
