For $100 this little pistol fit my hand perfectly. Shooting was a pleasure (even one handed) After firing 4 full mags There where no FTF or FTE's.
Most 22 cal's are finicky about the ammo they like but the HP-22 actually ran perfectly
with cheap bulk ammo. It was very accurate even during rapid fire shooting.
The only negative I can report is that my pistol was a older model. The newer mags I purchased won't drop out when you hit the Mag release button. I called Phoenix Arms
( Nice People) and found that they had started using new molds to make the pistol. The newer mag well is slightly larger as are the magazines. There is NO problem as long as you use the extended finger grip mags. You can simply pull them out. The flat bottom mags have to be pried out.
With the newer pistols
All in All a really nice pistol for the money.
There is a tab you can grind down to allow them to fall out.
I have one of these and the first thing i recommend is doing this modification to allow it eject magazines without messing with the safety.bryco-jennings-jimenezarms.com :: View topic - My new Phoenix Arms HP22
Without this mod I could not tolerate this gun. with it I love it and shoot it really well.
I had an issue with the slide cracking because of a frame defect and they replaced it with new(after sending it in twice)
