Oh no, not a 22a. THE 22a? Say it ain't so. The 22a has such a reputation. Did you fire it yet? Is the shop open tomorrow!?

I honestly don't know a thing about them. I do like the design a little better that some of their other 22 autos that have that infernal barrel bushing that comes loose. But I have not shot many of them so long term I don't know. I have a couple friends with them and they seem to like them.

What? You don't like the 22A!
I just bought the Talo edition sunday,I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.
It seems to be a well made pistol,and I'm not too worried about wearing out the recoil buffers. I don't know how many of them I have replaced on all of my other 22's that have them over the years.

You did fine for your first handgun. You could do alot worse. It does seem to have some engineering and/or QC issues (feed,extraction,buffer) but it isn't really less durable than anything else. Take it out and shoot it, see what happens.

I have had a 22a for over 10 years. Never had the first problem with it. The finish is, well, Krylon. They work, are reasonably priced, but just bdon't look like much.

I put a cheap BSA red dot on mine and it will shoot clover leafs at 30 feet
