In looking at the way my Browning Buckmark holds rounds with the extractor I noticed that there is a gap between the actual rim of the case and the point of the extractor hook when the case is placed directly on the bolt face. Is this gap normal? With the case pressed against the bolt face and the point of the hook touching the side of the case I can shake the bolt and the round will stay in place. If I pull the case out so that the hook of the extractor is touching the inside edge of the rim the round can wiggle off pretty easily. I guess I'm asking if the pic below is "normal" for a Buckmark?

I don't own a Buckmark and I'm not that familiar with the extractors on them but that don't look right to me. It is having any extraction issues when your shooting it?

;)I'm guessing that is perfectly normal.

All .22 ammo is among the filthiest you can shoot. I've had to use a flat-bladed jeweler's screwdriver to scrape lead off of the breechfaces of several .22 semi autos I've had. There has to be a lot of tolerance built in to the design to keep functioning over a long plinking session.

Take several different brands of ammo along with you when you go shoot it. Each gun tends to have 'preferences' for certain brands in the realm of accuracy and reliability.

Took it to the range the other day and put around 500 rounds through it. Zero FTE. I guess its perfectly normal.
