Intratec TEC-22 Rim Fire Race Gun


Intratec TEC-22 ready to go.


Field-stripped


Here's the trigger mechanism and internals.

Intratec tec-22 - Rim Fire Race Gun

I'm sure you are already wondering what the heck a TEC-22 is doing in here with all the other "more conventional" rim fire race guns. Well, I actually entered this TEC-22 in a couple of iron sight class bowling pin top competitions a few years back, just for the fun of it. Actually got a second place it, to everyone's consternation. (They've FINALLY stopped calling me "The old guy with the UZI!")

The TEC-22 has a lot of really neat things about it. First, of course, is it's looks! All black, boxy steel with a short little barrel, large capacity magazine. What's NOT to like! Just OWNING one is enough to set off the gun-banners.

When I first picked up a TEC-22, I was pleasantly surprised by the feel of the grip. It doesn't look too fancy, but it seems to fit your hand well, although it's a little slippery. Very comfortable, in fact. The sights, although large and crude (like some of my shooting buddies!) do the job. If you have lousy eyesight to start with, BIG sights are appreciated. The TEC-22 uses standard Ruger 10/22 magazines, and that gives you lots of magazine capacities to choose from.

The TEC-22 is the second easiest semi-auto there is for field stripping. The easiest is the Jennings 22. It would disassemble itself in your hand, sending parts in all directions when you fired it.

To field strip the TEC-22, just push in the button on the back of the frame just below the rear sight and lift up the hinged top of the receiver. Pull the slide back about half an inch, and lift it, the guide rod, and spring out as an assembly. That's it! You can field strip it and reassemble it in ten seconds!!

How's it shoot? The trigger pull is average, but is easy to work on, and pull can be lightened to suite your preferences. I think a wider trigger would also improve the feel. Shooting from a rest, it's more accurate than I would have expected, considering the short barrel. I wouldn't expect too much at fifty yards, but that wasn't it's intent to start with. The sights, although not fancy, seem to do the job OK. The rear sight is adjustable for elevation, and the front sight adjusts for windage. One of these days I might just mount a red dot sight on my TEC-22. That could be a really fun combination!

I have had failure-to-eject problems once in a while, but I suspect part of this is due to the gun still being a little tight, and possibly my selection of ammunition. Come to think of it, cleaning it more often would also help, I'll bet!

Final Impressions: I find the TEC-22 to be one of the most fun 22's I've ever fooled around with. It's not the most accurate, not the most precisely built, and certainly not the most sophisticated from an engineering standpoint.

However, it's a whole lot of fun to shoot, and that's what it's REALLY all about, isn't it!

As long as you don't mind being called the old guy with the UZI.......

HOW DO YOU FIX EXTRACTION/ EJECTION PROBLEMS WITH THE TEC-22?

 
At Tuesday, September 06, 2005 12:15:00 PM, Blogger Mr. Completely said...

Ejection and mis-feeding seems to be more of a problem than extraction. Cleanliness is important, and different ammo seems to make a difference. I have had more problems with Ramline magazines than with the one that came with the TEC-22.I still haven't fully cured the problem, however.

Any and all ideas will be appreciated, and if you find something that really helps, I'll do a full post on the solutions....

The only thing I found is to pull as strong and quick as I can so it doesn´t mis-feeding and extranction problem. I don´t know if this help...
Forgive my poor english i hope you understand.

The modification to the semi-auto TEC-22 will allow the TEC-22 to work 100% reliable with BUTLER CREEK 25 round 'HOT LIPS' magazines! Don't sell your TEC-22! The cure for it's jamming problems has been found! I wanted to sell my TEC-22 until I found a way to make it shoot reliably. I fired over 10,000 rounds of .22LR ammo through my TEC-22. The cure is very easy for the jamming TEC-22. E-mail me if you want to know how to make your semi-auto TEC-22 fire 100%! e-mai: Billuvrights@aol.com

The selling price for the TEC-22 is about $280-$350. The price for the TEC-22 will go for more once people find out how great these guns really are! I have four TEC-22 pistols. I will not sell my TEC-22 pistols because INTERTEC is no longer in business. The TEC-22 pistols are not being made anymore. I sell a video that explains how to make them shoot reliable as noted above. E-mail: Billuvrights@aol.com

My TEC-22 jams at the drop of a hat, it's basically a combindation of design flaw between the gun and various brands of ammunition. That thing pisses me off to no end when I take it to the range, but you know what? I love it all the same and protect it religiously. Near as I can tell from various experimentation, the easiest way to squeeze some extra reliability out of it is to be johnny-on-the-spot with the cleaning and maintenance, and not skimp on the ammo. The cheap stuff does not agree with this piece!

Now, here's a question for anyone who knows... where, oh where, can I find barrel accessories for this beast? That's what I want to know.

I am working on making some small adjustments to the extractor pin to solve some of my ejection problems. Also, I have been making muzzle brakes and have one that looks GREAT! the brake is about 4in long and the same dia. as the barrel. it uses 4 rows of 6 holes ea. in a plus sign shape. I also polished my trigger and made a new mag release out of alum. to replace the plastic one. I think having the polished metal with the black looks very good!
I could make a muzzle brake for someone if they want. e-mail jjulian79@juno.com

Since you appear to have done agreat deal of work on your Tec-22, I was wondering if you could tell me where I could get parts for mine. I sent it in on a recall many years ago and when it was returned, the entire trigger/hammer assembly was missing. Has just been lying in a drawer for a long time and I would like to get it fixed. Thanks gregpat@bevcomm.net

don't use the remington thunderbolt ammo (says in manual)winchester super x works the best (in my experiance with almost every brand of .22 ammo). I had one of these @ 8 years ago and I loved it. if your firing pin has not broke yet it will. i went through three but i use to REALY get on it clip after clip brick after brick. i found the pins online and they are still available. the funny thing is when i bought it ($99)there were two broken pins under the foam in the case. they should have hardened them. great gun enjoy!!!!!!

I found that the TEC-22 video is very interesting. I was able to make my TEC-22 shoot 100% reliable in the full-auto mode. The semi-auto TEC-22 is not reliable in semi-auto. The video explains some good tips for improving the semi-auto TEC-22, but I have tried everything the video said to fix the jamming problem of the semi-auto TEC-22 with no joy. My semi-auto TEC-22 stil jammed , but works great once I converted it to full-auto, which uses different parts. The factory semi-auto TEC-22 trigger & hammer is a flawed design. The good news is that the full-auto conversion is 100% reliable using CCI MINI MAG .22LR ammo!!! (You must be a Class II FFL to convert any gun into full-auto). The best semi-auto pistol for using large .22LR 25 round magazines is the Volquartsen 'Cheetah' pistol. The Cheetah is super accurate and reliable & looks a lot like the TEC-22.

i bought one of these scorpion model tec 22's last week with a hard case and a butler creek 25 rnd banana clip for 200 bucks. i was actually looking at wheel guns when i came across it. i love its 3 second tear town feature. im using cci mini mag 1235fps high velocity ammo. i think a tac trigger, hellstorm etc and jungle clip it. you can put many of its big brother the tec 9's accesories like the barrel shroud.muzzle breaks, etc. im thinking about mounting a rail system on top too. this looked like a fun plinker and for the money, pretty sweet.

To the person with the broken firing pins, and the other with the missing pin spring: I also broke my firing pin, and in the process of fixing it, lost the spring. I ended op cutting down a spring from a bbq grill lighter(it doesn't take much tension, and the lighter was a dollar at the dollar store) and for the firing pin, I actually made one with a drimmel tool with a cut-off wheel out of a stainless steel knife blade. Works sweet. no more breaks. machine fairly slow and often dry fit and you shouldn't have to heat temper. use old pin as a template. Make sure the grain of the steel runs longways with the blade. Hope I could be of some assistance to someone. Working on the jamming next.

No point in buying the new pin without a spring.

I just bought a tech 22 and the first thing I had to do was replace the extractor and I got that off sksparts.com the told me they have intratec,s old pattons and remake the parts with better materials, I also have a ruger 22 and the resistance of the firing pin spring is much less in the ruger than the intratec, that must be why higher valocity ammo is better, I have had no luck with lighter springs, seems like they are not smooth in operation. Does taking down the top of the trigger catch really work for full auto, or do you need to buy parts and get a liscence, I am to to eager to ruin my gun.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned here regarding jams: IF YOU DON'T SEAT THE MAG CORRECTLY, THE TEC-22 WILL JAM. And I only know this because I got a little slip of paper with mine that said: "Insert mag, then push mag forward for proper operation."

It's moves only about 1/8"... but if you don't seat it right by inserting the mag, then rocking it forward till it stops, the gun will jam!

Hope this helps someone.

Can anyone help? I lent my tec22 to a (used to be) friend. When I got it back it had a broken hammer. I ordered a replacement hammer from sksparts.com and when I installed it, there was not enough clearance for the bolt to slide back. I ground enough of the hammer to clear the trigger catch. Then it shot one round, loaded the next and sat the hammer right back against the bolt. You had to eject a good round to cock it again. I then bought another hammer from E-gunparts.com which arrived today. Since the first mod did not work, I then tried grinding the front of the hammer to gain the necessary clearance. (Yes I had the same problem before grinding...no clearance for it to slide) At that point (after grinding) now the hammer will not sit flush againt the fireing pin to fire the gun. Am I doing something wrong that I can not gain the clearance???
HELP!!!! Ready to order the 3rd hammer as soon as I find out what Im doing wrong.

Fix Jams:

* 1st use a better magazine. The stock Tec-22 30rnd mag is very cheap a good steel hotlips mag (25 rnd) for $20.00 works great.

*Next the extraction & stove pipeing can be solved with a very slight grinding off part of the barrel where the extractor grabs the casing. The CCI Stigners Jam less becasue they have a larger lip to grab. slightly grind the angled area where the extractor grabs the casing lip (and I do mean very slightly as to not damage the barrel) If you take out the mag and watch it eject a case from the bottom u can see exactly where to grind. Use some emmery paper to smooth the burrs from catching the next bullet and your done. Make sure to keep your Tec-22 very, very clean and well oiled or it will give you problums. A clean gun is a happy gun!

*Disclamer I am not a gun smith, these are just the mods I made carefully and with some gun knowledge if your in doubt take it to your local gun smith and have them trim the metal!

I have a Tec 22 and while firing it, the metal striker (firing pin) broke. Ordered a new one from Numrich gun parts. Now I'm getting slam fires or auto fires from my Tec 22. Want to correct this problem. Is the new metal striker "too heavy" for the spring that recoils the striker? Should I replace the spring that the striker recoils against?

"...shot one round, loaded the next and sat the hammer right back against the bolt. You had to eject a good round to cock it again."

had same prob w/mine. purchased parts from same sources with same results from both suppliers.

when grinding down (just barely) enough hammer to clear the trigger catch, the bolt only pushes the hammer back far enough to catch the hammer mid-way. i then had a friend put a thin bead of weld on the front face of the hammer providing enough surface for the bolt to push the hammer down and engage the trigger catch. be careful when grinding down the front face of hammer though to keep the hammer face on enough angle to strike the firing pin.


now mine works just fine. have run about 250 rounds through it and only 1 jam occurred.

I have two Tec-22's and the secret really is in the magazine. The mag. that comes with them works best for me, the side of the lips opposite the breach it higher and helps eject the cases. I had problems with my Kimmel AP-9,I modified a mag. and it shoots flawlessly.

I've had one since 94 and have 2 25 2 30 and 1 50 round mag all of different brands. The key to less jams is to seat the mag correctly (there is wiggle room) which I believe meant pushing the bottom forward, and to use ammo with a smooth profile. I use "thunderbolt" and jams are minimized.

I had jamming problems with my Tec-22 and it sat for 2 years. I read somewhere that you can only use Ramline magazines and CCI Ammo. I tried this and it worked great, not one jam with 100 rounds through it. I took it apart and cleaned it throughly. Bolt was filthy especially around firing pin and ejector pin slots. Be careful when placing firing pin spring back into bolt. You have to make sure it is seated properly against the charger handle otherwise it won't fire properly. The area around the barrel inside the receiver also needed cleaning. I thought I kept my guns prestine and was surprised to find so much crap in the nooks and crannys. Anyway, I loaded Ramline 30 round magazine with Federal, Winchester and Remington .22's. No jams! Fired great! This is good news as I can now shoot regular .22 cartridges rather than buying special ones. The original mag, also a Ramline, that came with the gun is worn around the lips. As a result it wobbles when seated in the gun. I found that if I hold it and apply pressure towards the front of the gun, it keeps it tight and no jams. So my recomendation is cheap and does not need any modifications. Keep the gun clean and make sure magazine is tight and you shoud have no problems. If you need a manual go to this website and download it for free http://akbs.ru/manuals/manual_it_22_en.pdf The manual is a good thing to have if you have questions with takedown proceedures, etc. Good Luck! I hope this free advice gives you many jam free hours of fun with your Tec-22!

Ben: Make sure the bolt (or slide) is traveling all the way forward and isn't hanging up just a bit short. If that's OK, I'd suspect a binding or broken firing pin.

If you aren't dealing with the nightmare of California fire arms regulations, consider yourself lucky!

I bought a Tec-22 (from a licensed federal fire arms dealer) before the Assault Weapons (A.W.) debacle in California. It was of course registered in my name at that time and has remained so. However, I missed the opportunity to get it grandfathered in by registering it as an A.W. before the cut off date in 2000... I was not tuned in to the changes in legislation at that time. It's been locked away with a broken firing pin for several years. Now, I'm interested in fixing it up and making it legal in C.A. Obviously, I'll be getting some 10 rd mags and a rebuild kit. I'm also thinking about a couple of mods to appease CA law enforcement; such as modifying the magazine release to require a tool and soldering or welding the threaded barrel protector on permanent. I'd prefer to buy a second non-threaded barrel if I could find one or buy and modify a replacement threaded barrel so as to preserve the ability to restore it to factory condition. If anyone has any experience with such mods, related suggestions, words of wisdom, etc... It'd be much appreciated.

How about a trade? Your threaded barrel for my non-threaded barrel?

My barrel has less than 2000 rounds through it. No cosmetic flaws, good black oxide finish.

I'm in AZ and the threaded barrel would be cool to have.

to remove the barrel you have to remove the pin screw holding the top on
remove top and trigger housing
if you dont want to damage the plastic make a jig i used a piece of wook cut to fit inside of mag well with a hole drilled in it for the barrel to fit through
a large clamp press till you hear a pop the barrel will come out easily

To the person with the broken firing pins, and the other with the missing pin spring: I also broke my firing pin, and in the process of fixing it, lost the spring. I ended op cutting down a spring from a bbq grill lighter(it doesn't take much tension, and the lighter was a dollar at the dollar store) and for the firing pin, I actually made one with a drimmel tool with a cut-off wheel out of a stainless steel knife blade. Works sweet. no more breaks. machine fairly slow and often dry fit and you shouldn't have to heat temper. use old pin as a template. Make sure the grain of the steel runs longways with the blade. Hope I could be of some assistance to someone.

They are see through and strait. I don't want someone seeing who many rounds I have left. Any ideas on a fix for the original magazines or a similar replacement? I hate to pay $50 for a clip, when I bought the gun new for $140. I may consider selling it , if another gun purchase comes through in the next couple months. contact me at kmfrost69@aol.com

additional info. the Tech .22 is clean. I'm guessing fired less than 600-700 rounds total. Started Jaming more often in the last 100 rounds. I think it needed cleaned and lubed. Plus, I always used cheap ammo. And I'm going to assume the weak spring in the magazine was part of the issue. I tried a box of 100 CCi my bro gave me and it seemed to help the problem much, until the spring in the clip broke. I kept it fully loaded all of the time. It has been stored in it's case since. Send me offers if you want, but, like I said I may not even consider the sale if I don't get the gun I'm looking into at the price I want. kmfrost69@aol.com

I had a problem with mags not seating properly, pushing them forward caused them to fall out. I looked at the plastic feed lips and saw that they prevented the mag from being pushed up all the way. A couple of strokes with a file across the lips cured the problem and the mags seat fine now.

BTW, I find the CCI Mini Mags work great in my TEC.

Have a good one!

I have owned 3 Tec-22's (and was dumb enough to sell 2 of them). All three have a common problem when it comes to magazines - although they lock into the magazine well, they're loose. If you grab the magazine a rock it rearwards, the gun will jam every time, however, if you rock the bottom of the magazine forwards, it feeds more reliably. This tends to point the next round into the chamber, as opposed to pointing it at the face of the barrel. I have soome older Ram Line 50-round mags, and as long as I hold the mag this way, they work fine (also gives a second handhold).

i've had this gun for a long time now-mine had the original firing pin that did not need a spring in it(or some one made it).we all know these little gun's tend to jam alot-if it's not the ammo then it's the clip or the gun needs to be cleaned or all three. well here is what cured mine.on ammo-cci stingers and mini mags-two reasons has enough kick back to fully eject spent round and the rim is fat so the ejector has no problem catching it. keep gun clean.now the magazine's-here's the part that i've spent most of my money on and was not happy at all-stay away from butler creek clips,eagle clips,ruger clips-the one you want is made by ram line because i never had a problem with the original factory clip till it started to break then the jamming started but i found out that ram line made the original clips went to the gun shop bought a ram line 50 rounder went to the rang filled her up with stinger's and let her rip flawlessly not one jam or hang up.with the ram-line mags use cci ammo stinger-mini mags in the tactical inc mag you can use all the cheap stuff and works perfectly to get the tactical inc mags go to tacticalinc.com or sksparts.com and cost about $60 and for tec-22 parts go to sksparts.com or e-gunparts.com and yes it has to be spelled e-gunparts.com, hope this help's anyone with the tec 22 jamming curse. if anyone has a question for me you can find me at the forum page on e-gunparts.com my name is khaleb

ATTN: To all please stop asking how to make the tec burst or go fully its illegal unless you go trough the proper paper work and pay a tax stamp. and on sksparts.com i'v never had any problems getting parts from them i've gotten tec-9 and 22 firing pins from them a kg-99 upper with black crinkle coat finish a tactical inc tec-22 mag i've never gotten a t-22 hammer from them so i don't know bout that one, and the only thing you gotta do to get your tec-22 to run flawlessly is to keep the charging handle screwed tight to bolt because if loose can give the firing pin to much play and can cause the pin to break i didn't tighten mine last rang trip and it split down the middle, so keep them tight in place and use ram-line mag's with cci ammo or tactical inc mag's with the cheap ammo, and one more thing if you have a tec-9 try not to use the safety to much when cocked back the reason why-is when doing so you are pushing the charging handle down in safety position it's hitting the very tip of the firing pin witch i have heard are hollow or just very weak if done to much will shorten the life of the firing pin, one more thing NEVER use WOLF ammo in the tec-9 even if it is 115 grain it jacked up two of my mag's and the upper the ball bearing popped out and i had to tweak my mag's so they would work again from what i can gather russian powders aren't that good

Can somebody post a pic, or a good description of the firing pin spring? I lost mine when my pin broke, and want to try and fabricate a new one, but I cant quite figure out how it is supposed to fit. Does it fit into the lowest grove of the firing pin, set inside the block, or in the top notch? Maybe if no pics are available, a good measurement? Thanks for all the great info so far. This is about the only place on the net to get info on the Tec 22

I have a Tec-9 that I am wanting to sale or trade. I would trade for a Tec-22 with threaded barrel in good condition and in good shooting condition. If you want to trade even, you would have to pay for the shipping of both guns. Mine is in really good shape and fires great also. It has a 32 round clip and has the threaded barrel. If you want to buy mine stright out, it would have to be done via a FFL dealer/holder. I have one here where I live that I deal with. I am asking for a straight out price of $485.00 Or Best Offer and $20.00 shipping. You can contact me for photos of my gun at
superbazooka213@yahoo.com and I will need to see photos of yours if you want to trade.

Thanks for all the good posts. I was able to make a firing pin out of a butter knife and the spring from a mini bic lighter. I taped the firing pin together so I could trace the pattern with a razor blade. The razor scored the stainless steel remarkably well. I used a “metal” cut off wheel to cut the pattern out and then used a file to finish the edges. The butter knife I used was fatter at one end so I shaved it down on the grinding wheel so it was a uniform thickness. I then used half of the spring out of a mini bic lighter. It was perfect, because I lost the first half after disassembling it for a final cleaning and needed to use the second half. This took me 4 hours to complete and that included the trip to the hardware store to buy a cut off wheel and a mini bic lighter. I put 200 rounds through it and I think it works better than before and I can’t imagine that this firing pin will ever break.

For the other guy and others who need help installing the spring. Place the firing pin in the bolt, place the operating handle on top of the firing pin. Lift up on the rear of the operating handle while holding the front down. Slide the spring in under the handle as far as you can. With the tip of a small allen wrench press the rear of the spring in while pressing down on the operating handle, then reinstall the screw. To check you work, press on the rear of the firing pin. It should spring back with ease. Good luck

My dad gave me my Tec-22 years ago...it never worked right..ever. i had all but given up on it untill i found this out....the ejector pin is molded into the trigger block plastic...it's too short...lenghten it by 10mm...i used a piece of razor bladed dremilled to shape and secured with epoxy......over 500 rounds now of ammo and not one failure. If anyones interested i can explain how to make the intractec tec-22 scorpion operate flawlessly with any ammo or magazine. my email is dahunter@tctwest.net I will help for free! This is a very easy fix, on a cool little plinker and is a blast now that it functions properly. Try this if your tec-22 malfunctions all the time .....you wont be sorry

Ok, I still cant figure out this firing pin spring thing. I broke open a small Bic and the spring under the part that you hold down to light the lighter is to big to fit into the channel where the firing pin sits. Am I using the wrong pin? Does anybody know who has firing pin springs in stock? I found SKS parts, but if I remember right they have a minimum order, and charge more in shipping than the price of the pin.

Thanks for any help.

If anybody is in La or Ms and has Tec parts, let me know.

Go here for parts:http://sksparts.com/TEC22PARTS.htm

I should be picking up mine on Monday and can get some dimensions to you if you are looking to make your own...Firing pins are good for about 1500 rds...I know this because I owned one back when they first came out and had to have Intratec replace 3 of them. It's a design flaw. The narrow part of the pin where the return spring is placed in conjunction with where the pin makes contact with the rim of the cartridge along with where the hammer strikes the pin...These conditions cause the pin to break at the return spring cut-out toward the front. Whether a better material is used for making the pin helps, I don't know. I made one of A2 tool steel that was also thick than the original and it broke even sooner. Though I must add that it may not have been heat treated properly at Starrett's where my mother worked at the time. They were told to heat treat to about 55 rockwell and draw it back to 40-45...No clue if that was done right. I will be re-designing a new firing pin that will move the return spring to a new location which will allow the pin to be thicker at the point where the it breaks. If you make your own, make sure you put good radius' at the return spring cut-out.

At Thursday, September 15, 2011 12:20:00 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Measurements are from end that strikes the rim...this is the front of the pin. ( AOL is 2.300 ) ( 4.90 at front ) ( .370 at back ) ( From top 1.545 to cut-out, cut-out dimensions are from 1.545 measurement and top of pin ) ( .160 down at .460 long ) ( .070 from TOP at .600 long for step-up ) ( .425 from front to angle cut ) ( .845 from front to end of angle cut which is to .370 dimension ) Firing pin thickness is .075 to .085max ( From .290 down top/front pin narrows .030 to .035 thickness to bottom and .125 long )

 
At Thursday, September 15, 2011 6:21:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Correction and clarification:
( .490 at front ) ( maintain the .490 dimension for .425 to where an angled cut will start ) ( the .030 to .035 narrow section that strikes the rim is .200 in length from bottom of pin )

Don't waste your money on ANY DVD. Goto youtube and search tec-22 DVD review. The guy will tell what a junk video it is.

The real problem with the Tec-22 is it truely is a junk firearm. Check the front pivot point for cracks in the plastic (very common). Also many of the firing problems can be attributed to the receiver cover not keeping the firing pin down in the bolt. The cover gets bowed and worn and allows the bolt and firing pin to ride up.

Magazine fitment is EVERYTHING with FTF and FTE issues. Best I have found is the Butler Creek with steel lips.

I buy broken Tec-22's email me at - springer(at)springer.ws

I have 2 Intratec Scorpion TEC-22 non-threaded barrels FOR SALE in almost new condition. Maybe on a scale from 1-10 they are probably a 9 ½. They have the original boxes, tags, one original manual and original magazine. I wanting to get about $325 each or $600 for both. I have never fired them, and I got them at a gun show in a trade. I just have no need for them and am looking to sell them. They need to go through a dealer on my end, and also sent to a dealer on your end. So any of that expense would also need to be picked up by the buyer. If interested, send me an email: hogrodder@yahoo.com

No. A Tec 9 is a 9mm semi auto pistol. The Tec 22 is a .22 caliber semi auto pistol. They do not share any parts.

Wondering if anyone has solved the slam fire issue with the tech-22. I have tried extensively to fix this issue without any success. I have tried new parts and modifing old ones. If you hold down the trigger while cocking then release it after the bolt has closed it will fire. It seems to miss the hammer sear upon release. Holding the hammer and slowing it down with your finger allows it to function properly but in real time it will not catch. Effectively the hammer will follow the bolt upon firing and either double or fail to fire. Has anyone redesigned the trigger geometry??
