S(weet)R(imfire)22

Last week I got to shoot my new (to me) SR22 and chimed in on one of the ftf threads. It would fail to feed about the 3rd round; I didn't have time to figure out if it was one magazine or both, but one had a broken hold-down button. I had already called Ruger customer service and my button came in today's mail. I changed it out and loaded 'er up and went to the range. The only problem I had today (and I was shooting out of the same box of ammo) was getting the 10th round in the mag with the new button. Also, it has to be rammed in hard and is extremely difficult to eject. Wow, was it sweet to shoot. I needed to get used to that very short trigger pull after the initial shot, but after that I absolutely riddled a 5 gallon bucket at about 45 feet. I could put a shot just about anywhere I wanted to and I had not one single failure of any kind. I tried to make it fail--shooting slow, double tap, and as fast as I could pull the trigger. It was just plain sweet!

Now, about that magazine.......anyone recognize these symptoms? Is there anything I can do about it? I can't drop the magazine from the normal position, I almost have to use both thumbs to push the button.

Thanks in advance!
