The pistol shoots and fires like it should. To manually cycle .22 long rifle will damage the ammunition, possibly to where it will malfunction. The case is thin brass. The bullet is soft lead. It is cool to manually cycle ammo in a gun, but if I ever do that, I save the manually cycled ammo for range practice only.

Blowback Action Extractor

Your LCP II .22 is a blowback action semi-automatic. The extractor doesn't do anything except extract a cartridge when unloading a loaded round. I shot NRA Hunter Silhouette with a guy who had a Ruger Mk. II with a broken extractor that was almost totally gone. Been missing for years. Gun cycled fine except you had to shoot it empty.

Can you please explain this to me? I've read this in multiple places, but I thought blowback guns had fixed barrels.

They do (usually). The force of firing pushes the spent cartridge, which pushes back on the breech of the bolt, moving it rearward. Shells extract on their own until they hit an ejector.
