Any experience with S&W 22A .22LR?
I saw one of these recently in a shop for $199 and I'm considering picking it up. I have never owned a hand gun myself and have wanted to get something for snakes and for target shooting as well as something my wife can learn with as well.
My only concern was that I have seen mention of jamming problems with it in the few reviews I have been able to find so far.
Has any one had any experience with one of these?
Sent 22A To S & W For Repairs.
Took the 22A to the range Sat. 5/20/6. Shot just about every gun I own 1st & then shot the 22A about 50 or rounds. At that point it started misfiring about every other or so rounds.
Brought it home to check out & clean. Could not get it to break down. Couldn't get barrel group to disconnect from grip & trigger housing(?). :rolleyes: It's always been a bear to break down but wouldn't budge this time. Called S & W customer service & they sent UPS shipping label. It will go out tomorrow.
I really enjoy shooting this pistol. It's never given me any problems except for cleaning it. Hope it comes back ready to go! I feel like it's a old friend that's not feeling too well & needs to go to the Doctor. :smt022
Re: Sent 22A To S & W For Repairs.
Follow up; Just got my 22A back from S & W repaired. Sent by UPS on 5/31/6 and it was repaired & I received it back by UPS today 6/14/6. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but did check the break down. It is easier to break down now than when it was brand new. They didn't give much info as to the cause of the problem but enclosed a diagram of the trigger area saying "make sure this area is clear of dirt and debris" with a arrow pointing to the top of the trigger. I thought I kept it clean but maybe I didn't clean that area as good as I should(?). :? I guess the moral of this story is to clean that area very well.
