Default Walther P22

There is one for sale locally. I was thinking about purchasing it for my wife who has just started shooting. She has fired my Glock 17 the recoil is a little too much for her right now. I was wondering if there was any experiences with one these. Good or bad.

They have a history of failure. Fail to feed, fail to fire, fail to eject. I've see quite a few pics of them that went kaboom. I have one it never leaves the safe. The s&w .22 I always reach for. In the general same price range and no problems at all. Also very accurate.

I think mountainman meant Ruger Sr22. Looks almost identical to the p22 but quality is way way better. If it's not what he meant I'd still suggest it. Hehe

I'm sure the ruger is great. I don't have one though.

+1 on the ruger SR22. Very reliable practically identical to the Walter if you ask me. A bit of a biotch to take down and clean though.

+2 for the Ruger
The p22 is very picky on ammo and jammed more than any gun I've ever had. The ruger sr22 will shoot anything accurately

nah, disassembly is very easy. re-assembly can be tricky sometimes. just have to find the sweet spot. ive already done it enough times that its no problem i can feel right where the slide needs to be
