Just got my new 22lr put together...hope it's a shooter
What will be interesting for me is that I’ve become more of an Eley shooter. I’ve seen how I can group with my capabilities and curious to see how this chamber does with Eley.Thanks
The only good things I have read about 1.5 are from Kevin Nevius and he feels the 1.5 is pretty Lapua specific and 2 works for pretty much everything. I think that is pretty much verified seeing the results your chamber showed in your barrel tests.
Amazing indeed. The lot of RM I have shot like shit out of my other barrel. It was a laser with the GM today. I was getting avg of 1082 fps (15rds) and SD of 5. Sadly I’m on my last few boxes.RimX is amazing. 22" GM barrel 1.20" straight from Keystone. no idea which chamber but it shoots great with SK RM.
how long is your barrel? I was at avg 1056fps with SD of around 8 at a match last weekend.Amazing indeed. The lot of RM I have shot like shit out of my other barrel. It was a laser with the GM today. I was getting avg of 1082 fps (15rds) and SD of 5. Sadly I’m on my last few boxes.
So I just around to digging back into this. I called Zermatt and was shocked that a real person picked up and was knowledgeable and helpful. I was waiting for a automated directory, and it caught me off guard, lol. A new extractor and tensioner are on the way.@serevince Before every match I check the following:
-Extractor on bolt head. I make sure the 1/16” sized set screw is snug. FYI there’s no spring behind it.
-Tensioner claw. I make sure it doesn’t look funky or bent in any weird way. The tiny claw is held in place by a spring and detent (pressure).
-Ejector. I make sure it doesn’t wiggle by pushing on it with my finger. Before putting the action in my chassis I added a drop of purple loctite to the screw that holds it on and snugged it up. It’s not really super accessible once the action is installed. There’s no spring here either. It’s a fixed object.
The ejector is attached to the action. It’s the “blade” thing poking up. If you peek in the port you can see it.So I just around to digging back into this.

In the mean time I replaced the extractor and now it does not eject at all. (I also noted my extractor appears to be the newer material). I came back here and re-read and it looks like I am missing some key knowledge?
I can ID the extractor, and the tensioner. Both appear to be in good shape.
What and where is the "ejector"?
Think I need to figure out the ejection issues before I tackle mag height tuning. (I can remove the mag and it still does not eject)
Made a quick video.. about as far as I typically strip it down to for quick maintenance.Just got my rimx wanted to disassemble the bolt but I'm having trouble. I've already looked at the videos on how to disassemble the bolt the problem is I cant separate the body from the firing pin assembly. I can twist the fire pin assembly from the body and that's it. The fire pin assembly will not pull apart from the body what am I doing wrong
The beautiful thing with the rimx is that it is easy to remove the firing pin and dry firing it without the firing pin doesnt damage the action.Can you elaborate on what you mean by that? Do you remove the firing pin to dryfire? I always just strayed away from dryfiring rimfire rifles.
It is good to see I am not the only one with this experience. My initial order was a barreled action, nothing but problems. I had a local gunsmith who had never even heard of Rimx contact Ray and rechamber it for me after using a 6' bar to get the barrel off the action. Since then, I have had Jelrod (MODACAM) do 4 barrels for me including rechambering (he does Bison Tactical prefits) and they have all functioned flawlessly. He is great to deal with.Wow, I am surprised to see the responses here. Between me and my shooting buddies we have 5 RimXs. Only 1 was purchased as a barreled action, and it was also the only one to have a problem. The other 4 have prefits from PVA (don't recommend), straight jacket, and proof. It really isn't hard to put together, and if there is a major issue, whoever made the barrel better stand behind their work.
