I finally got the parts from S & W to replace the extractor and put it together. I will try it out this week to see if everything is okay.

Got my VQ CF barrel and got it installed in time for the Steel Challenge at PNTC on 3/3. Didn't know if the little mini red dot I had on it was zeroed due to all the wind so I used my 10/22 in RFRO until the last stage where I used the 15-22. Holy mackerel is that thing light. My RCBS trigger gauge says the 15-22 is now 6 oz. lighter than my LW 10/22 with its own VQ CF barrel on it. Only things still containing steel is the Geissele trigger, the bolt, and the barrel liner. At last weekend's Rimfire Falling Steel at Monocacy I shot a 4.85s run on a 9 target setup that included a 5 point Texas star. I got progressively faster as I got used to it. I have to get used to the fact that it swings faster than my 10/22.

My 15-22 runs like a champ. I typically run CCI Mini mag and Federal Auto Match. Winchester Wildcat and Remington Gold is a bit dirty, but I don't run more than 300 or so rounds when we go out. Maybe the luck of the draw??

I've had 0 issues with mine. I'd say it had around 4k rounds thru it with only one cleaning. Half of those are suppressed.

No FTF issues running suppressed? That's impressive. What ammo are you using? Inquiring minds and all...

None at all. Even rapid firing a whole 50rd drum.

I have oodles of golden bullets so that's what has gone through it most of the time. It's ironic bc the golden bullets suck a fat one in my 22lr pistols. I pretty much only use them in the 15-22.
Also cci standard and blazer.
I've run minimags through it as well, but considering it'll eat the cheap stuff I usually reserve the more expensive HV stuff for my pistols.

Can you post up a picture of your 15-22 with the new
barrel? Curious to see what it looks like.

Installed parts 15-22

After extractor blowout, I received the replacement parts from S&W and installed, five minute job. Test fired but had failures to eject. I found a YouTube site where the guy shows a minor tweak by bending the ejector bar a small amount into it's track on the bolt. I also installed an Edge extractor (probably unneeded). The action now run like a charm. Several hundreds of rounds of CCi, Aquila and some Federal. Only two Federal failure to feed.Runs like a charm. Routine cleaning. I have the same trigger in it as my comp. AR and it is my bad weather practice rifle at the indoor range.
