The extraction issues where why I was able to snag the .22 kit, and for a shockingly good price. The guy mentioned it was used at a range, so I assumed the round count was kinda high, with a decent number of dry fires, which explained the FTE issue; I went back and forth on how to fix it.Yes, when rimfires are dry fired, they peen the chamber out of round, which doesn't help extraction.
And I'll have to get one of those ironing swages, that seems like a much more elegant solution than my meathooks trying to manuever a tiny file. 😂My P226 kit had the same problem when I got it. I got a "22 chamber ironing swage" tool from Brownell's and it did the trick. With 22, unintentional dry fires are in inevitable (much less so with CCI Mini Mags) so my solution was to put a grey dry wall screw anchor as the last round in the magazine. I count my shots (ha!) and change mags when the last live round goes into the chamber. I have 5 magazines. After the drywall anchors get chew up a few times I throw them away. i did get a Canadian 22 mag that DID lock the slide open on the last round but it was made on a 3D printer and I wore that sucker out. I will check out those Taylor Tactical followers.
I was skeptical myself when he suggested it, but it was a near instant fix. Though, I did add just a little bit of lube to them too, so it's possible it was the combination.Those TT followers do work well. But they do get jammed in the mag occasionally when loading. I will have to try that mod on the follower and see if that helps.
