Picked this thing up on GB the other day.  Shot it the first time and so far I'm not feeling it. One issue I am having is it doesn't want to extract the shells out the chamber once fired.  I took it to a local smith and he said the extractor and spring both needed replacing because someone had fired to hot a load in it.  This seem plausable? Its chambered in 22-250 and besides having to single load for it and dump the spent round seems farily accurate.  I've gotten about 8 shots on it now with one being on a crow at 145yds that ended in black cloud of feathers.

Its definately different than anything I've messed with before.  I talked to Ernie in depth about specialty pistols before i got this one.  I didn't want to spend a lot to find out I didn't like them so I think for what I have I'm ok.  I may turn around and sell it if i don't start liking it more.  I want to try a pistol scope on it now because I am not liking the rifle scope eye relief on it.

I have a savage FV 223, it has extraction issues. It has been that way since day one. I have shot only factory ammo through it.  I sent the bolt back to savage and its better, it doesn’t just leave them in the chamber but it still just pulls them out of the chamber then drops its most the time. Its pretty much a single shot rifle.  Hope you get it fixed and running 100%. My savage is accurate but you only get 1 shot. Most the time i just want to beat it up against a tree.

Cool looking toy though, best of luck with it

Here's a video of mine:

Mine does what your talking about.  Will pull the spent round out the chamber but just drops it back into the open action preventing you from chambering another until you tilt the gun sideways to get rid of it or pick it out with your fingers.  No chance of a follow up shot with it like this.  Pointless to have the blind mag really.

Get it fixed and then see how you feel about it.
I mentioned that not having a brake and using a rifle scope could make one feel uncomfortable.
Using a LER scope will take some time to get used to, but you will be more strung out and you will be plenty safe from "scope eye."

I'm going to order the parts to get it right next week.  With it being 22-250 there isn't much rearward movement anyway so scope eye isn't my concern, its just not comfortable to me to hold it so close.   If i could have it about 5+ inches of eye releif i think i might ilke it better

It does take some getting used to.
It becomes a matter of compromise either way.

Just a thought, I'm probaly completly wrong since i dont know anything about these guns.

could you put a pic rail on it then use something like really extended bobro mount, but reverse it so it puts the scope back more towards you. That wouldnt help with the eye reliefe but might get teh pistol grip little further away from you and make it easier to shoot.

I'm still in thought on what to do, that may be something I try.  I pulled that scope off something else to use but have a 3-10 on the way to try on it that has a bit more eye relief.

I like it, .... extractor and ejector . just upgrade the ejector spring to a stronger one and it will work fine.

Well I replaced a few parts with the extractor and that has fixed everything I was having issues with on this gun.  Still not digging it.  Thinking its going on the chopping block.  Watch for the For Sale Ad

Well, you tried it.
If you ever are around someone who has a custom XP, shoot it!
Even though they are similar, they are still different.

If you are selling it, I might be interested.

I have been thinking about something like this and I am comfortable tinkering with Savages.

I am generally interested, but I need to see if I can find one locally to look at.  I am a bit picky about grips, so I need to see if this one is comfortable.

I know this is an older thread but I just came accross it and joined the forum today.  I am the new owner of the Striker 22-250 discussed here.  The ejection problems were solved by the previous owner and it works well.  I was lucky enough to shoot two bucks with this pistol.  I am very pleased with it.
 
I do have a Striker in .243 that has the ejection problem.  I will change springs and see if this corrects it.  It should, we used to shorten the ejector springs on our benchrest rifles so they would not eject the case.
