I have also heard about the slide being made of cadmium or aluminum?

I think aluminum. Cadmium is a toxic metal, and not suitable for machine parts, I think. From everything I've read, the P22 is OK if you run ONLY CCI thru it. Standard velocity, I think. I used to have one, and my buddy currently does. I LOVE the looks, feel & operation of this gun. Admittedly, I sold mine for lack of functioning, but I never gave it the chance, or was aware of the CCI ammo thing, ect.

I was competing in a pistol shoot that was a fundraiser for the Jail Ministry. Because it was a fundraiser we allowed all calibers. Three ladies were on a team. Two of them were shooting the Walther P-22. They were both having constant jams. I dont know how well they maintained their weapons. But I will not buy one simply because I saw two perform horribly at one event.

I bought one a few months ago and have put more than 500 rounds through it from Remmington, Winchester, and CCI. It has had no major issues with a jam every 100 rounds or more.
If you need the threaded barrel, the P22 is a great choice. If you don't, the Ruger is a better choice. The Ruger is more expensive where I am but by about $20. That is still a better value as the Ruger includes a second magazine.

I've had a P-22 for 5 or 6 years. I've never had a problem with it when using CCI ammo or hyper velocity ammo. It will not cycle on bulk ammo.

AR tactical and auto match are the best for mine idk I just got a really good one it actually stovepiped on STINGERS and with every other rounds it runs like butter.
