I’m having an issue with my Model 60 22 rifle – it is different from many 22s in that the trigger is held by a pin in the stock and not part of the barrel assembly.  The sear/extractor is one piece and fits into a deep groove on the trigger. (these parts are well illustrated in the Numrich Arms website).  The problem is I have to push the extractor forward with the bolt before loading a round.  There is no problem loading a 22 short or long into the chamber, but a 22 long rifle round is somewhat difficult due to the limited space between the chamber and the bolt.  Pulling the bolt back any further brings the extractor back about a quarter inch and no size round can be loaded.  The rifle is an early version of the Model 60 as it has the shorter 23 inch barrel and is marked for 22 short, long, and long rifle ammo.  My question is whether this is the normal loading procedure for this rifle (ie, having to push the extractor forward with the bolt before each shot) or is there a problem with my rifle?  Any guidance would be appreciated – thanks.

I’m going to need a picture to figure out what your problem is.

Winchester used this same design on many of their single shot 22s. you just pull the bolt back start the shell in the chamber let it fall behind the ejector and close the bolt.

My model 60 has plenty of room to load a long rifle.

After reading your post again I think you are trying to load it with the ejector against the chamber??? If so leave the bolt and ejector back start the round in the chamber and let the bolt push it in.

Thanks to Jay for the reply.  I probably did not make it clear enough in my original post.  I can bring the bolt back on my Mdl 60 to 2 positions:  The first position is about three-quarters back and the extractor remains flush with the chamber.  The second position of the bolt is all the way back which results in the ridge on the top of the sear/extractor being about one-quarter inch back from the chamber.  In this position, no round can be loaded in the chamber.  I realize this is pretty confusing without an illustration, but wouldn’t the extractor need to be flush with the chamber in order to extract the spent brass?, i.e., the extractor needs to be located between the chamber and the rim of the cartridge?  That is the position that ejects the spent brass on my Model 60.  Again, thank you for taking the time to reply.     Pat

Pulling the trigger while the bolt is fully open will lower the extractor and permit easier loading of a cartridge.

You might try placing a cartridge on the extractor and then push the cartridge and extractor forward into battery before closing the bolt.  This will position the extractor in the proper position to eject the cartridge case and the bolt should close without any binding.  RDB

I think Roger is right, I too was perplexed until realizing the extractor is on a spring, designed to slip over rim as round is fed into chamber by bolt.

Good conversation.
