Thanks Mark... Alas, no warranty is available. It's under $200 for the weapon though, so would be a great deal if the gun is in sound condition.

What I looking for was P22 specific things to look for... I don't know much about them outside of what I've read here and on some other reviews, but those don't say much about what wears down.

For example, on my other pistols I can take a peek at the barrel landings and grooves, bulges in the barrel, check the striker pin, etc.. I even hear about folks using a micrometer to check for bulges in the chamber. For the Glock there are also serial number databases so it's fairly simple to get a rough estimate of age.

With a .22 autoloader, a good visual inspection will pretty much tell you about the gun. Work the slide, cycle some snap-caps through it, and test the trigger & listen to the striker and finally, look down the barrel. If you like what you see... then buy it.

Default Picked up the Walther

Just got it home today.. Haven't fired it yet, but doing a general cleaning and familiarization.

Alas, it's apparently missing a re-assembly tool; there's supposed to be a plastic rod to assist with guiding the spring. I used a metal tent spike, but still took a bit before I could get it everything back together. :/ I'm going to spend the next couple hours pulling it down and putting it back.

I've heard alot of guys use a wooden dowel a little longer than the standard rod.
