Today at league I had an issue that is new to me. First off I have put just over 500 rounds or so through my new AW93 and it has been flawless. League starts today and my first shot is a 10 followed by a 9 and that is where the wheel's fell off. I go to take a look at the target and there are 2 zero's and a punch of low shots, turns out the older gentleman next to me is shooting at my target. 

Now to the actual problem, I set my pistol down but there is a live round in the chamber so I pull the slide back and the extractor doesn't grab the round. I racked the slide multiple times with no luck. When firing the round extracts each and every time but once chambered and not fired the round doesn't eject. Is this normal for the AW93?

I would say "yes", as my .22 pistols do that quite often, (Marvel, Hammerli, High Standard) which is why there is a piece of dowel rod in each pistol case.

.22 is a "blow back" design and uses the charge to blow the slide/case back. The extractors job is to hold the case until it contacts the ejector.

I could be wrong though!

My AW-93 does it on most CCI SV rounds.

I think this is somewhat common on 22 pistols.  My marvel and victor both do this.  They function fine when fired but an unfired round will behave like you describe fairly often.

Just to confirm....

This hasn't happened to me in a while, but in the past what I would do is pull the slide back, remove the magazine, and use a "range rod" to persuade the errant (non-fired) round to move backwards until it came out of the gun.  

I have "real" range rods (bronze?) for 45 and 38, that I bought from Brownell's I think.  For 22 I have a two-piece cleaning rod which seems to serve the purpose.  Maybe I should buy a real one, made for that purpose.

I don't want to take this thread off in a new direction, just to confirm that what you guys were saying up above is correct.

I have a dental pick in the front tray of my gun box.  I just hook the rim of the round and pull it out.

Brilliant idea!  I've got a box full of those old dental picks that dentists used to throw away.  Great tools for model railroading, which was my need.  I'll put one in my range bag.  Thank you!

Tools? Pfff ...

I've got an extra thick fingernail from an encounter with the gear train on a lathe when I was a kid. Conveniently, it's on my 'dexterous' hand and I now shoot from the sinister side.

Not that I recommend this as a solution...
