    I just read a review on gunblast.com on the ISSC M22 Glock look alike .22 lr pistol. Looks interesting, might be a good alternative to a AA conversion kit. What you guys think about them?

    Not really new just not well known. Last saw one about 4 or 5 months ago at a local shop, didn't have any particular feeling towards the gun. Didn't really have any features that attracted me to it, they are obviously marketing off the glock look. It's a turkish made gun I believe imported by another company sorta the way ATI does. I think they ran around $300ish. Pretty sure it only had a 10rd capacity but I can't remember.

    This topic has been discussed here so I recommend doing a search. I seem to recal less than favorable review on it.

    My local shop has one.

    I believe they're about $350 or so new.

    I have had one for about six months now. I am very pleased with this .22lr pistol and it has performed almost as well as my Glocks. I have fired over 2,000 rounds (mostly CCI, with some Federal and Winchester bulk packs) and had my first failure to fire last week. I fired approximately 40 rounds, then on the fifth mag one of the rounds did not fire. I cleared it and finished the remaining mag. I then loaded the questionable round and it fired without a problem. I finished the range trip by firing the remaining 60 rounds without a problem. I would highly recommend this pistol to anyone interested in purchasing one.

    I remembered something else. The pistol comes with two different recoil springs (Long and Short), however, I have not experimented with them since the pistol has performed flawlessly with the installed (Long) spring. The "Long HV" spring is used for shooting high velocity rounds while the "Short" spring is installed when firing standard 22lr.

    I held one last weekend, and was stoked about everything but the ambidextrious safety (felt chinsey), and $465 dollar price tag. Otherwise, it was like holding a single stack G19, and fit in my tiny paws perfectly.

    What is the trigger pull like?

    One of the previous threads was mine. I still rate the gun as unfavorable, even after getting it back from the factory for the "fix".

    The only ammo it will run with is Federal 550 Bulk packs. Before going back to the factory, it wouldn't run with any ammo. Standard or high velocity.

    I personally know of three of these guns sold locally and semi-locally that had to be sent back to the factory. If the gun was maybe $200 to $250, I could see having to put up with the finnicky nature. But for $400 out the door, it should be as reliable as a Glock.

    How much newer than introduced at the last SHOT show, and not hitting the market until just about six months ago does it get? The gun is made in Austria and MSRP is just about $370.

    Thanks for the input so far guys. I am thinking I might be better off with a AA conversion kit for my G19, than sending $400 and a 10 day waiting period on a gun that "might work".

    :dunno:

    Just noticed you are in CA.

    Get the AA or TacSol .22LR conversion.

    The ISSC/AIA M22 pistol is not on the CA DOJ approved list.
    So, unless you are a CA LEO, you can not buy one.

    The gun has all the restrictions to meet the CA DOJ. I am sure it will only be a matter of time before it is added to the list.

    The trigger pull is acceptable. However, the middle of the trigger is uncomfortable on the finger after shooting a few 100 rounds.

    I did not think about that, it will probably be added to the list soon though.

    I know there is a long waiting list on the AA conversion kits, what is the availably on the TacSol kits?

    Tactical solutions conversion kits (only for the 17, no 19 version) are not supposed to be available until third-quarter 2010. AA conversions are backordered a year or more, and auction prices for '19 kits are running $100 or more over list.

    So, I bought an M22. I am -very- happy with it. See range report in other thread.

    Thanks for the info. :wavey: Looks like Glock conversion kits are a no-go for the time being.

    I want to pick up a M22, waiting for CA DOJ to put it on the "safe list" :faint:
