I did these with a dremel. Very easy.
Mods were done at 2000 rounds.
now at 4500 rounds I've had ONE fail to feed.
Thanks for skimming over my thread. Let me hear your criticism.
Please add to this if you can. Even links to other mods.

Fail to eject FIX:
Extractor.jpg
The ejector hook, ejector hook spring, and the barrel all affect the fail to eject issue. The hook does not have an aggressive inside angle, the spring is very weak, and the barrel has too much material where to ejector hook grabs the case.
1. Remove material from inside the hook.
2. Add a 1/16th to 1/8th inch piece of metal at the base of the ejector spring.
3. Remove material from the ejector cut on the barrel.
4. Fine sand and polish all contact areas.

Fail to feed FIX:
Slide1.jpg
The striker has a strong initial resistance point due to the 90degree angle on the bolt block. This is an issue approximately half way through the cycle. I rounded the back of the bolt block to allow for a smoother contact between the bolt block and the striker. This also makes the major point of resistance occur later in the cycle so it’s overcome easier by momentum in the slide.
Reduce dramatic resistance points from the cycle.
1. Remove material from the bolt block where it and the striker make contact.
2. Fine sand and polish all areas of contact between bolt block and striker.
3. Be sure to cycle the weapon in safe and fire mode. It should be smooth.

Extra round in magazine:
The magazine is capable of holding 11 rounds with one modification to the follower.
1. Cut ¼ to 3/8th inch off the end of the spring perch on the follower.

Magazine eject button:

The magazine eject button is surrounded by excess material that makes pushing the button uncomfortable.
1. Disassemble to remove magazine eject button.
2. Remove material around the button hole to blend it with the trigger guard.

My SR22 has no FTFeeds or Ejects, mag release button was fine as frog hair. Sounds like you should have sent yours in for repair.

The magazine button worked as it should from the factory.
I removed material from around the button for comfort.
I blended the trigger guard into the grip so nothing is protruding near the button.
Now my boys aged 8 & 9 can use it without struggling mag change at combat speed.

How many rounds have you put through it? What kind is used primarily?

What is combat speed?

I sold it for what I paid because a friend wanted his 8yo to learn to shoot. 672 rounds of Blazer with no issue, the Remmy's sometimes didn't go boom though
