    The only issue I have had is with cci mini mags -they have extraction issues-cycling the bolt aggressively seems to wrk- but they do seem to stick-pretty sure it's just the ammo- I cannot even get it to chamber in my Remington 541- they get stuck halfway in - all other 22 ammo works just fine

    I think it's the wax coating on the cci ammo that's causing issues.

    Cleaned it well and now functions decently. About 1 in 10 fail to extract. Will put in a spacer to strengthen the extractor spring.

    I purchased a Zastava MP22 a few years back. It is a very well made rifle and very accurate.
    Mine is accurate with any ammo I put through it.
    I still cant believe how dirty the barrel was from new.
    The rifle had extraction issues right from the first time I shot it. I Replaced the right extractor
    spring with a stronger one and now it functions perfectly.
    The Zastava is as good or better quality than my CZ at just over half the price.

    That is one fine looking gun. According to Google it seems the MP22 and the former Remington Model 5 (same rifle) are tack drivers but their achilles heel is the extracting problems that some experience. Suggestions range from ammo types, the springs are to weak to the left and right extractor should not be exact copies of each other are posted. Which is right and which is wrong is beyond me.

    Jay have you experienced any more extraction issues?

    I had major extraction problems with browning bulk target, everything else has had intermittent problems with a dirty barrel (~100 rounds). Ive had good luck with both standard and mini mag cci, and also very waxy ammo like s&b. Also find the first round can be a little finicky, but i think this is a mag problem. All said they are super accurate for the price and built strong with no practice which is rare for a low cost .22
