Have you looked at the Ruger SR22? They are about +/-300 USD. It's a .22LR and is pretty compact.

Try T28B lube on the slide and CCI Mini Mags 40 grain ammo. It makes my Sig Mosquito work and that's one of the pickiest semis on the market. Also use a brush to clean the ejector. Since you problem is after the first few mags it could be residue on the underside of the extractor. Good luck.

That's good info.. I could see myself keep on buying CCI stinger ammo when it's $10 for a box of 50 and I can just go shoot my 9mm for just a $1 more ... I bought some kinda lube for it but I'm not sure the name it's a specialty lube.. Guy at the gun shop said it might be my mag but it does so many different styles of jamming . From not clearing the chamber with the spent brass to not even loading a new round in the chamber but ejecting the spent brass just fine... I'm no gunsmith so not really sure where to start other than lubing the slide good and trying new Amos which I have done

My wife's Bersa Thunder .22LR has been reliable. It's the same size & close to same weight as the Thunder .380, so makes an ideal trainer for the .380. Her's likes CCI Mini Mag & the Remington Golden Bullet. The Bersa .22s are reported to be picky & only work well with high velocity ammo, but I think that's pretty common except for a few, like Ruger Mark II & III or Brownings.

The Ruger SR22 is basically identical in size and weight and even, to a certain degree, overall appearance to the Walther P22, but internally, they are really very different guns.

Ruger specifically markets the SR22 as being designed to function reliably with all kind of 22LR ammo, not just hyper-velocity stuff - which I think is intended as a dig at the Walther, some of which have been reported as being rather finicky.

On the other hand, my Dad's P22 as well as my own which I sold to a brother a while back both always have worked fine with everything we've tried in them so; the Walthers certainly aren't all bad.

I haven't had a chance to try my SR22 yet, but I'm pretty excited to "give it a whirl."

My wife bought a walther p22 a couple months ago... Never had any problems with firing, only issue is with the ejector instead of kicking the spent shell to the right it throws them straight back into your face... Or in her case down her shirt... Haha Other then that it shoots great. Cci and remington thunderbolts
