Solved my problem, it was the ammo.

Lucky! Using CCI Mini Mags or anything else mine still barfs on the 9th round. No easy fix for me.

John, I took a screen shot of this post off a forum several months ago. I don't know which one. I can't give credit to the author because I didn't capture it with my screen shot. Here's his suggestion:

Quote:
Mag loading is important. After putting 10 rounds into a mag, turn the mag so the rounds are nose-up, compress the spring about 1/8 of an inch and gently shake from top to bottom (a couple of times) and back to top (stop shaking with the rounds leaning toward the feed end). For some reason the rounds will fall into place for optimum feeding. You can recognize whether you did it right because the nose of the first round is clearly above the magazine.
Perhaps it seems a bit finicky, but not for a 22LR. Certainly no more so than my Browning Buckmark which needs the same magazine shake manuever, and on which I had to dremmel the lower side of the breech to get it to stop the feeder jams. Note: My Buckmark doesn't like Remington 22s either.
I never tried this but thought I would throw it out there for you anyway. Who knows; it might work.

John, those M 422's are great guns for sure. I wish Smith still made them only with a better grip angle. The 422 A's of today are no where close to the quality of the older guns.

I agree the S&W 422 is excellent. I just never appreciated it because it always worked. I've had is for about 20 years and just assumed other 22 handguns would operate with the hassle free style the 422 has. I almost traded the 422 in on the Buckmark for $200. Sure glad I didn't as that would of been a huge error on my part.

I will try it tomorrow and report back but it looks like he shaped the extractor and repositioned the ejector a bit. The edge of the extractor looks shaved and there is a tiny space between the magazine and ejector that wasn't there before.

100 rounds four jams on the 9th and/or 10th round. Same issue. I guess back it goes for more warranty work.

Load a magazine with 10 rounds and insert it in the gun. Does it look like this



or does the ejector still touch the top round? With the gun pointed in a safe direction, very slowly ease the slide forward and watch how the round feeds out of the magazine.

Repeat the above with just a single round in the magazine and watch how the round feeds out of the magazine.

From your photo it appears the ejector will still be pressing against the rim of the top round in the magazine and as the round feeds out of the magazine lips, it will tip the nose of the round up.

Yes the rounds interfere with the ejector.

My Buckmarks cycle just fine with the "standard velocity" ammo I mostly use for target work...more accurate also.
The Mini Mags go in my revolvers as well as any high velocity ammo.
