    No offense Uncle Don. With the nature of 22 rimfire ammo you are going to get a round with primer issues now and then no matter what brand you buy. Yes the chances are less with premium ammo but it is still there.

    I have close to 4,000 rounds through my G44 and have had 4-5 issues total. And those 4-5 issues were definitely due to ammo and not the pistol. The same goes for my Ruger Mk II, S&W 22A, and Kel-Tec CP33. My G44 has been just as reliable as the other pistols I own.

    As loony as I am for .22 Handguns and .22 kits, the G44 doesn't appeal to me. It's not the price, I just spent an equal amount on an SR22 and a S&W .22 Compact. It strikes me as a plain jane 10 shot semi-auto of which the market is full of. My AA kit for the Glock 21 scratches that itch. I think the TX22 is a lot more fun.

    That was actually a pretty fair and objective review. I like how the author made a point to mention how finicky rimfire ammo can be. Some people seem to overlook that fact and blame the gun.
    And his finding on ammo types is similar to mine. It seems some 36 grain ammo works fine while others not so well.

    Some of the 36 grain (or lighter) ammo that I have tried didn't feed well. Pretty much all of the round nose 40 grain ammo I have tried has worked whether it is standard or high velocity.

    I recently broke the 5,000 round mark while testing out some more ProMag 18 round magazines. I now have 4 of them and they all work just as well as the OEM mags do. I have only used 40 grain ammo with the ProMag's so far.
