The jamming went away after polishing the mag feedramp with a Dremel and some Flitz polish....I went to the range Monday and put 300 rds through it with NO jams...little cheepie gun is now one of my favorites!

I just got one at my range off a guy for $60 with a 4X32 scope on it..
It was jamming on him (failure to feed sometimes/fail to extract)

So I have taken it half apart and polished the mag feed lip AND polished the chamber feedramp.

We'll see how she does next time at the range.

The lips of the magazine are probably worn, I bet it needs replacing. Hope I could help...

I agree with Snow i use to have a savage .22 and i had the same problem after alot of use. Take the magazine out and look in the groove where the shell slides out of the magazine mine had abuild up in that groove. I tried solvent but it dident touch it. I took a rotary tool/dremel and a small wire weel atachment and carefuly cleaned the crud out of the groove.Imnot a gun smith but i had no more problems with mine.If there is not abuild up in that groove then it probly is a damage or ammo probblem

Like yoda said try a different ammo, I've had a lot of problems with the bulk hollow points in 3 or 4 different semi autos. If its the clip my savage has had some problems and you are better off getting a new one. The clip for mine was like $10 through cabelas.

It could be your ammunition choice, try different brands. My buddies .22 jams up all the time and we need a knife or needle nose to pull out the casings. But when we shoot remington rather than american eagle rounds it shoots great without jamming. But this happens usually after a round has been fired, it sounds like yours is jamming when it's trying to feed in another round. Try different ammo and a new clip and see what happens.

I'm not sure what you mean by "jamming" exactly but if it is a feeding problem off the top of the magazine a couple things could be going on.
One: Your magazine might have some damage that causes the cartridges not to align correctly or to misfeed.
Two: There could be some buildup of crud and residue where the cartridges feed into the chamber. This can be difficult to spot and hard to clean out but once you get going you might be amazed at how much junk is lodged up there.
Three: The spring in your magazine might be too weak or your follower might be a bit dirty--either condition can make it difficult for the magazine to feed properly.
Four: Something else.
That about covers it...
