    A suggesestion. Dont buy it. I spent months on two different models trying to trouble shoot the problems the gun has. I was able to get about all the kinks out but it was so tempermental about ammo and jams I final sold both of them, if you do a web search you will find several articles written addressing the little Walthers weapon problems. I wish that the piece worked it is very cosmetically attrative and that it why it sells well but the functionability blows.

    Go buy the Advatage Arms kit for your Glock (I assume you own one) and blast the rimfires away. Great practice too. The kit I puchased works flawlessly and is alot of cheap fun!

    I have shot a P22 with a can. The weight at the front of the pistol turned the gun into a single shot, it would not cycle the slide.

    Well I have a p22 3.4" version & love it. I've had it for about 2 years & put about 1500 rnds through it with very few feeding problems. I'm also impressed with the accurace from the short barrel, & very light & comfortable to carry while I'm out on the trails with my atv. Maybe I just got lucky.

    I recently picked up a P22 with the 5" barrel because I got a great deal on it. I was aware of the problems some have experienced. I followed the recommended tips before I shot it ie., stored it for about a week with the hammer cocked, tightened and loctited the pinch bolt and tightened the barrel nut. I've put about 400 rounds through it, both high and standard velocity with not one malfunction. I shot it yesterday without cleaning it from the week before. No problems. The gun is quite accurate and fun to shoot.
