    I recently bought a nearly new 9422 lever action, in 22 Long Rifle (also shoots shorts, longs). I've had good luck previously with one in 22WMR. Sadly, this one ties up frequently when cycling cartridges through the action. More specifically, it fails to eject, then a new feed ties things up as the unejected shell gets in the way. I'm not sure whether this is an extractor or ejector issue, though this description suggests ejector. When disassembled, the ejector and spring move freely. Can anyone suggest a fix, or how to diagnose the problem, where to send off for assessment/repair, etc? Is service still available for Winchesters? I want to fix this rifle or get someone to fix it, as I believe the problem is probably simple enough to one who understands the design better than I do.

    Winchester still exists--they just closed their US factory. Check here for service info.

    possible solution to extraction problem

    The right upper extractor has 2 springs, one within the other, underneath the extractor. The springs sit at 90 degrees to the extractor. Sometimes they fold over and lose their ability to create a powerful extractor and this allows the cartridge to stay too far to the right on the bolt face. The ejector then misses the cartridge when the action is cycled to eject and feed a new cartridge.

    This right extractor can be removed by tapping a small punch in the hole from the BOTTOM. This pushes the extractor pin up and releases the extractor from the bolt body. If the springs are not at 90 degrees or sitting straight up in the slot, then reposition them, using grease to keep them upright. Then replace the extractor over the top of them, pushing down firmly on the extractor. Tap the pin back in place. Quite often, this will solve the feed problem, and the cartridges will eject just fine. If not solved, then the problem may lie with the ejector... the tip may be worn back or broken off.
