Don't mess with it, most semi auto 22's will only get worse if you try to improve or change the action.

Just go to a different style bullet design or brand and see if things work out,for the better.
Mine will shoot but not eject one brand and not feed another but have 7 others that will work and eject
but only two will shoot tight groups.

Good luck

I have fired winchester bulk and remington bulk, stingers, subsonic,and other various rounds. the gun will cycle fine but bout every 10 shells it will jam.

When you find the right box of ammo you should have 1 in 40 or less jam on you.....The Rem Gold 36gr at 1280
has yet to jam in my auto.
Here is a picture of some that work for me.......notice the heavy crimps on the three on the right!!
I did not notice this til today with my close up picture and lighting.

The cheap Fed Amer. Eagle far left jambs in auto and also will not eject in my win pump............the
rest are ok and notice the different lengths and tip styles.
The cci stinger (far right) with the long case, shot better groups than the Rem 1500fps yellow jacket .
