This is one great little pistol! Accurate, comfortable, no failures. Pity it's likely going to be my wife's gun - maybe she'll let me shot it. Ya think?
I also shot the SIG Mosquito I bought with her in mind - it's nice too, but I had a few failures to go into battery. I'll chalk that up to new-gun break-in. It's a nice shoot as well. The greater mass and longer barrel have advantages as well. Not disappointed with either one.
But back to the Walther - it was a WOW experience in deed. They did a .22 right in this one.
I've got the same one as you. (black with the short barrel.) I'm really happy with mine also. It feels good in my hand and really is a lot more accurate than I thought it would be.
Only a couple things I would change. Mag release is in a strange place in my opinion. I would love to have a version with a double stack mag as well. It would be pretty cool to get to squeeze off 20 rounds between mag changes.
With that being said, I would recommend this gun to anyone. Especially anyone trying to get the wife / girlfriend interested in shooting.
I too have owned a p22 for about 4 years now, and put probably around 4,000 rounds through it. And I must say its my favorite rimfire pistol of all time. The only time I ever have problems with it is when I fire cheap 22's out of it, other than that it is reliable and is very accurate for a pistol of its size.
Don't mean to hijack the thread, but post like these are making me think real hard about an offer I just got from a friend that works at a gun shop. He called to let me know they just got a P22 3.4" barrel in nickel in and if I wanted it I could have it for $325 (the normally sell them for $350 so it is not a super deal but a decent one)... I may just be a new owner of a P22 tomorrow....
i've had my Pww for a while now and love it. Great way to spend an afternoon. I have 2 questions for this group if you can help me. The first is my rear site seems to be a bit loose.Can any one suggest how to tighten it? Second, when I rapid fire, sometimes the safety switches from the "fire" to the "safe" position. Any thoughts on that?
