NO MORE STOVE PIPES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here is all that I did.

Polished the bolt and interior of the breach.
Modified the magazines
Installed VQ magazine disconnect removal bushing
Polished the recoil spring rod.
Polished feed ramp.
Installed VQ extractor
Installed VQ LCI delete
Shot 500 HV rounds CCI Mini Mags

Total cost $35$

Now it has zero stove pipes with any ammo HV or SV

Im happy now , but pistols should not need anything from me to make them function properly . My mark III 22/45 lite cobalt had zero issues from the factory.
Mone had stovepipes and all I did was replace the extractor with a VQ. It fixed everything. I read a little and did the most mentioned thing first.

I have done every mod except the VQ extractor and bending the ejector towards the breach.

after all other easy mods the best anti stove pipe thing I did was remove the LCI metal piece from the LCI. 90% of stove pipes went away.

I have a VQ extractor coming this week.

I noticed the ejector is very tight to my the bottom of the bolt in the new stainless mark III 22/45 compared to my 22/45 lite, could that be causing excessive drag? could I file it down some on the top and back slope.???? are their any other suggestions that ive never seen, cause ive done everything else ive seen on the net .

It went from 2 stove pipe jams per mag to 3 stove pipes per 50 rounds.

my older 22/45 lite with every mod made, might do it once per 500,if that, even with no mods it never did it to noticeable amount.
What kind of ammo does this occur with. I have a 22/45 mk3 with 3500 rounds in it. It has the original extractor and ejector and the LCI in it and has never had a stovepipe. just saying.

varugerman, Your stovepipe issue has been around since the very first Standards rolled off the assembly line in 1949. I'm surprised Ruger has never properly addressed the issue and continues to use a stamped extractor.

The MK III 22/45 works just like any other 22 LR semi-auto .... when fired, barrel pressure pushes the spent case and bolt back until the bolt reaches the rearward limit. If the extractor doesn't hold the case rim firmly against the breech face, the spent case will fall out of the breech pocket and won't eject .... rather it lays in the receiver and causes a stove pipe. Any time I see stovepipes, the very first thing I do is to replace the extractor with an aftermarket extractor from Volquartsen or Power Custom. Their extractors are machined .... not stamped and work much better.
