Finally pulled out the Sterling 302, and tried to figure out why it was FTE on most every round. A careful look revealed that the extractor hook was barely gripping the case rim. Now, this little critter has some small parts and was always reluctant to remove the external extractor. It has the pivot pin with a spring on the back end. Using some low viscosity lube/penatrating fluid I was able to work the extractor as I flushed the recesses. After about ten minutes and a couple of dirty rags, things started looking better. I was starting to see full motion of the extractor and a proper grip by the extractor. The little critter is back to shooting everyshot and ejecting properly. I should have done this several years ago. I feel bad for overlooking this. 22 LR are notoriously dirty and it seems my cleaning just packed in the crud. Looks like I can avoid removing the extractor, if i just spend a little more time in the cleaning process.
