Default What .22lr firearms should I avoid?

Everyone seems to ask about what .22 firearms are good.

What about which .22 firearms are BAD!

Have any .22 firearms you dislike? If so why?

Raven, Jennings, Bryco...

I don't have any of these, but the consensus is they're junk. Saturday night specials. I don't believe I would like to be shot by any of them though....

That Walther P22 is crap IMHO. I tested a brand new example at the range (I was the first one to rent it), and it had more FTF than any other gun I have ever shot.

Default 22's to Aviod?

Hello all


RON L here = SERESURPLUS


While I tend to look to 22 Rifles, when one Mentions 22's, I have had some good and Bad Jennings 22 Pistols! Many were Picky of what 22 ammo to feed them, but none more so than my Beretta M-21?

I've had some HORRIBLE, I MEAN HORRIBLE 22 Rifles imported under the Name "SQUIRES BINGHAM", Rexio as well as a few that were brought in by "INTERARMS"!

Default Walther P22

I must agree with the above opinion of the Walther. I have the misfortune to have one and it is crap. I thought the wife would like the small size.

If it is perfectly clean it might cycle OK. But after about 20 rounds you have a fifty fifty chance of a misfeed or no feed.

Why? Just because you can't hit the broad side of a barn with one ... while inside the barn .... (at least the birdshead grip single action .22 revolver I had would not hit anything it was aimed at more than 3 feet away.) They don't shoot worth a darn, but do make for a nice wall display. Come to think of it, the .38 FIE "Colt Navy" I had was a POS too ...

Except the one revolver my experience with .22's has been rifles. I can't think of one that I did not like, and all were accurate enough for squirrel out to 75 yards.

Default .22 to avoid

Marlin model 60. Barrel to frame fit WILL work loose. Aluminum frame/pressed in barrel. Soft wood stocks ding easily.
