failure to eject

Hi guys,
Just recently bought a 10/22 carbine and love it except for one little snag.
Every twenty to twenty five rounds a get a casing that does not fully eject and jams the action open. I have tried three different ammos and I get the same result. I would venture a guess that the extracter just isn't releasing properly but I am not one hundred percent sure. All other times the cartridges eject with excellent force. I have about 1000 rounds through the gun and otherwise I love it. has anyone seen this before?

Clean your rifle real good. Pay special attention to the bolt face, extractor groove and chamber. Tune your mags. There are directions around here somewhere. Use a light coat of quality Dry Lube (Remmington Dry Lube works great)
Get yourself a VQ extractor and a weaponskraft bolt buffer. See if that helps.

Extractor from Hawktech=$12
Bolt buffer from weaponskraft=$6

If that doesn't help, send your bolt to Randy at CPC=$50, and polish your guide rod with fine sandpaper= free time

All these things together will help make your 10/22 run more reliably and smoother. Even if it doesn't fix the problem, it's still good practice to do all these things .

good luck,

hey thanks guys. I pulled my gun right apart this time and scrubbed every piece.
What I found was some burrs on the extractor claw. I filed these down and polished it with some crocus cloth, then oiled and reintalled everything. I tried it out in the field and so far it seems to be o.k. I am going to get a buffer and the vq claw in the near future, along with some other mods. I also need to know if anyone has had issues with yellow jackets. They work good with my ruger clip but with my butler creek 25 rounder I find they jam. Is there any other high cap that will work with these? I love using them to drop gophers out in the pasture.
thanks again for the help. :D
