I'm still looking at both of these pistols as well. I like the Ruger but it will be a lot more expensive for what I need.
I have a Sparrow suppressor in "jail" for another 2-3 months so I need a threaded barrel. Walther comes with a threaded barrel that only requires a $30 adapter. Ruger does not yet make a threaded model and only one company makes replacements at a $150+ cost.
Having said that, since both pistols cost the same, is the extra cost to get a threaded barrel worth it to get better reliability?

Thats what i thought at the beginning. I got the threaded barrel kit too.. from twin tech tactical.
I'd rather spend $150 extra for peace of mind.
My Gemtech Outback 2D is in jail for another 5 months. Lol

I can't really offer up anything negative about the P22. But I also can't think of any reason not to buy the similar Ruger SR22 (costs less, comes with two mags, etc) instead.

I've shot the Ruger a bunch. Zero failures with any ammo. Great little gun.

ruger Mk3 22/45 no question

either one of these are simply fabulous suppressed

http://www.ruger.com/products/2245Lite/models.html
http://www.ruger.com/products/2245ThreadedBarrel/models.html

the lite model is super lite but ive got the heavier model with fixed sights i run supressed.



go 22/45 and you can use this tool for TONS of fun

if your going to get a 22 for fun the 22/45 is a total no brainer.

Nice Jon. Good to hear from someone who has a can. I did see the 22/45 for $250 which is cheaper than the sr22 or the p22. I was concerned that the barrel length would be too long on the 22/45. I do have a buck mark but aftermarket barrels are $275 so might as well get a new gun!

Wife has one that chews through any brand of 40 gr. and sputters with any brand of 36 gr.

I don't like the complexity of it, but it is fun for her to shoot...once we figured out the diet requirements!

The P22 is about a like a Kel Tec it has core of loyal fans the rest of the world wouldn't own one. From my experience it takes a year or two of cursing it, abandoning it in your safe, finally you figure it out and have a pretty nice gun.

I have shot several P22's that were accurate and a pleasure to shoot but from the owner reports I wouldn't buy one.

I would take a look at 22/45 they are extremely accurate and I haven't heard anyone that owns one say a bad word about it. My neighbors 14 yr old son has a 22/45. He takes care of it about like you would expect a 14 yr old to care for a gun and it just keeps firing. His idea of cleaning it is washing the mud off it when he comes in off a 4 wheeler. The 22/45 is about $50 cheaper too.
