    I understand that they are controlled feed and the extractor is pushed excessively and is liable to break if single loading without a mag. Loading one in the mag will work well however.

    oh you are right, it is a controlled round feed (mini mauser) . i use a mag under but not another round. there is a way to modifiy the mags too by removing material from the black plastic block at the end.
    and you would have to alter the follower.

    FROGO207: Thank you for pointing out that I could still single load the magazine. And seat the bullet out as far as I want. I don`t know why I could not see that, I have complained about that on all the CZ RIFLES we have. (( WHAT A DUMB A$$ )). Just goes to show when you get old and fat you are just in the way. At least for me that is. I really just get alot of enjoy ment out of My CZ 22 Hornet. It will be sorta of a pain in the hind end to single load the Magazine each shot. And I have 2 or 3 magazines for my 22 Hornet. The Idea of me altering one of my magazines is out of the question, For I am dangerous with a screw driver.
