Hello guys!
I recently purchased one of these new 15-22 rifles and had some issues with FTE. Fixed those issues and am now running into an issue where several times per magazine, the bolt will not chamber the round completely.the breech is open, projectile is in the chamber, but thebolt did not send it home. If you press the mag release it immediately closes and ready to go.
I’ve thoroughly cleaned the rifle. I’ve polished the feed ramp. I’ve deburred the tops of the magazines but it’s still catching.
Any ideas ?

What about a "new" magazine? Just trying to think of what you can try. You might b at the point of contacting S&W again. I know mine is currently in their shop. Good luck with your problem.

I have no first hand experience with the 15-22. I do know they are still banned from Project Appleseed events because of out-of-battery discharges. I would go to S&W with your problem unless someone here has a real handle on the situation.
