I tried to find a diagram of a Henry 22 lever action rifle so that I could see what type of extractor and ejector was in the rifle, but had no luck. A couple of things. It sounds like the extractor is pulling the case out of the chamber, if so, the problem could be with the ejector. If the extractor looks OK to you, you might also try really cleaning the chamber well, especially if you have shot any shorts out of it. If the chamber is dirty, it will slow extraction. If the ejector is not working properly, it will not kick the fired round out and the next round will catch on it. Let us know what you find. Is the firing pin also the ejector or is the ejector separate?
Best regards, John K
