New Walther P22Q Problems ,seeking advice
Let me begin by saying I am a novice and please keep the flaming to a minimal
I purchased a brand new P22Q at the gun show last weekend and took it to the range last night. When I was shooting i was getting a large puff of smoke coming out of the barrel and a very distinct smell. I have shot P22s before and this was different than any I have shot. I shot around 250rds last night and the smoke or smell did not get any better.
A couple of notes:
I was using CCI mini mag 40gr that I also bought at the gun show
I took the gun and original magazine apart and thoroughly cleaned the gun after I bought it
I bought two extra brand new magazines that I used last night and did not clean them before I used them and when I took them apart today to clean saw a LOT of gunk inside the mags (gunk being grease/oil/preservative)
Also while cleaning out the barrrel today the first swipe of Hoppes #9 and a patch took out a good amount of metal out of the barrel.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
