    I shot my cousins P22 and went through about 100 rounds that day. He's only cleaned it once and forgets how long ago that was (if that tells ya anything!).

    We used the bulk Federal rounds and had zero issues with it. Very fun gun to plink with. I think he's went through another 250 rounds since then and no issue.

    I love mine. For cheap range fun...It's awesome! It is as accurate as you can shoot it (short gun, short site picture), and it's very easy mechanically to use. By that I mean the toggles (mag release, slide release, and takedown notch) are pretty ergonomic and uncomplicated. I started using cci's exclusively, had a few hiccups in the first few hundred rounds. After about 400 or so the thing has ran flawlessly. I now go through bulk Federal packs on a regular basis and have has no issues. I clean it every few range trips (500-700 rounds). Easily a few thousand rounds without a single issue.

    Last time at the range I went with a buddy whose experience with .22s is limited only to his MarkII, We traded about halfway though and although I was happy with the accuracy of the Ruger (longer barrel, longer sites) The control funtions seemed crude and not at all instinctive. My friend commented then, and once again the last time we chatted about how much he liked my P22

    [QUOTE=Joeywhat;151199]I'd say about 95% of the issues I've seen with the P22 are due to having an older model (new ones don't have ANY problems), or an improper break in period.
    I forget what to check for in getting a model that is newer (and trouble free), but I believe the serial needs to start with an "L". Also the mags need to start with an "A" or "B" in their serial.

    Hi Joeywhat, just checked my P22 and the serial start with a "H" I dont think its a newer one? Can anyone tell me when it was made??

    H prefix guns might be more recent models, I don't know. You can check the spent cartridge if it came with the gun, it'll have a test fire date on it. I know the "L" P22's have been out for a while, so yours may be new, may be old.

    Will do, but I won't get out until next weekend to break it in. I'm looking forward to it. I have American Eagle 40 grain solid first, and 38 grain hollow points for later. Anything else I should try?

    Ive had one for about 1000 rounds now, and have to say its great. one failed to load, and that was probably my fault, out of 1000 rounds. Ive shot CCI high velocity, CCI standard velocity, and Remington Golden Bullets ($16/550 at wallyworld) and they all feed fine. The CCI HV seem to be most accurate. Seems the gun doesnt like wet lube, it attracts too much gunk. Ive read a lot of inf on dry moly lube for most of the sliding parts is the best. Ive lightl oiled mine after a good cleaning, and am waiting for the dry moly to come in. There is a well detailed trigger bar ear mod that needs done to most of them, the ears on the bar eat teh slide housing. I found a lot of info on rimfire central.

    I dont have a lot of other guns to compare to, but I have to say my p22 has been great, and a ton of fun.

    BTW, the "AH" serial number is '07. AI would be 08

    Update

    Went to the range today and put 300 rounds through the P22. Perfect all the way, not one problem at all. It was very nice to shoot and although I didn't shoot at paper targets to test it's accuracy. I did get the general feel for the gun and had lot's of fun in the process. brought her home stripped her down and cleaned her up. All ready for next weekend!

    love mine

    i've had my p22 w5 inch for years with one fail to feed. it is one of my favorite guns to shoot. it isn't as accurate as some of the heavier 22's but over time i can stroke about any target set up. put thousands of rounds through it. i clean it religiously, i might put 5oo through it between cleanings.

    I love my P22! Both my brother and I bought them. A GREAT!! affordable well performing plinker. I clean it after every shoot. I did notice that the barrel had loosened up from the frame mount. I disassembled it cleaned it reassembled it and tightened it down with the supplied wrench. Keep an eye on the barrel tightness! It's accurate, lightweight and the wife can rack it.
    I recommend this gun - it's fun and loud for a .22.
    Enjoy!

    Not as classy? That's not what people tell me at the range when I take out my Ruger Single Six with rosewood grips. Sure it is a pain in the ass to load the bullets one at a time and eject them one at a time, but I can tear up the middle of the target with it. Now that is what I call classy!

    Happy Shooting!

    Thumbs up

    Bonjour,
    well guys went to the range yesterday after work. My wife turned up and we both shot the P22. Put a 525 box of CCI Blazers through it, WITHOUT A SINGLE PROBLEM.
    The guy next to us had a Sig Mosqi and didnt have a trouble free shoot. He also complained it only like HV ammo.
    My P22 gets fed on CCI bulk pack and has been trouble free from the start.
    Cleaned it, tighted it up and put it away till next weekend. Love this little gun.

    I have recently been made aware of the S&W .22 pistols. They have the ability to mount a scope to them as well. They sell for around $325.00. I love my P22 Walther as well.
