Prevent Chip in R-55 Benchmark?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a benchmark that has been fired less than 50 times as I fear the chip. I have thought about selling it, but is there a way to modify the gun to prevent the chip?

Do the R-55's suffer from the same chip issue? I read every post and found conflicting info. If they do, is the procedure the same? One poster mentioned that the classic and R-55 were very different inside.

I don`t let the bolt slam home unless there is a round in magazine and I don`t dry fire the rifle. I have a .22 Classic not the R55.

I have two R55 Benchmarks, one just passed 10k rounds and the other is nearly at 20k.
They have not had any adjustments made to the extractor or the extractor notch and they work just fine.
My advice is not to mess with the extractor at all.

Thanks, makes me feel a whole lot better about it. I doubt I'll get anywhere close to that kind of round count, pretty impressive.

See above, the only time the extractor can strike the chamber face is when there is no cartridge in place.

Should this be the case, close the bolt slowly if the extractor will hit the chamber face.

The R55s where no better in this regard. My R55 Classic hit very lightly, and my Classic 22 not at all...Tom
