Default Good and Bad

I've had one for 3 years. It feels great in my hand. It has the same kind of sights and trigger as a real self-defense combat pistol. It fits several of my favorite holsters. The price was right. I can get an adapter to fit it with a silencer-- and I did. That alone made the purchase of the pistol worthwhile.

But it was NEVER very accurate. I'd shoot a High Standard with open sights and get a 2" group, all in the black. Then I'd shoot a S&W model 34 revolver and get a 4" group, with half in the black. Then I'd shoot this Walther P22 and get a 6" group, just a few in the black by luck.

The gun was reliable when it was new, and clean. Then as it got older, it required more and more frequent cleaning. Admittedly, the suppressor helped get it dirty faster. But eventually, even cleaning it didn't make it reliable. It had to go back to S&W for warranty repairs. Now that it's back it's 95% - 99% reliable when clean, which is good enough for me. But shipping it to S&W cost $45.

When I bought this thing, I was unfamiar with the Sig "Mosquito." Now I think I should have gotten one of those instead.

Here's a link to a web page for the gun I wish I'd bought (though it would have cost $100 more up front).

www.impactguns.com/store/S-MOS-22-B.html

Here's a link to a video (high quality, good sound) of what I did get-- the Walther P22 with a "Pilot" suppressor. It really is that quiet.

When I shoot it, I've never had a problem. I think one has failed to feed out of some 1000 shots... My girlfriend on the other hand? She can have a failed feed every other magazine... I'm not really sure what the problem is either, I can't see any sort of limp wristing, etc. Similar problems happen with my XD9 as well with her though and I've never had a problem.

Limp wrist! That is it, that is all! She is rotating her wrist. jp

I bought one just recently and the wife and I took it out about a week ago and fired about a 1,000 rounds through it and she fell in love with it. I bought it for me and I think she is going to claim it. Guess I am going to have to buy me one now.

my brother in law bought one,and didn't like it because he said he could only shoot high velocity stingers or it would stove pipe on him. He is going to give it to my wife Sunday. I shot and like it a lot. great little gun.

I bought one of these and sold it a year later because it was one of the most inaccurate guns I ever owned. It was more so than my old Colt Ace, which was very inaccurate. I have recently purchased a Sig Mosquito and it is a keeper. Very accurate and reliable as long as you shoot high velocity ammo in it. Price was right too; $358.00 NIB.
