Walther P22. Almost every round jamming requiring manual clearing with almost all brands of ammo. Finally found CCI Mini-Mags worked flawlessly but that was the only brand that I tried that would cycle in it. Got rid of it since I needed a .22 that would work with any .22 ammo.

They have been making the Model 60 for a few decades. Are you referring to a specific "after ??? year don't purchase"? Thanks!

Same here!

Really? I've got a 1960 Model 99-G (60 varient) and a 1966 989-M2 that are perfectly fine after many thousands of rounds...

All wood stocks ding fairly easily, its WOOD...unless its Lignum Vitea...or Ironwood...
I sold Solid Oak furniture for years, dings pretty easy, not quite as soft as aspen/birch, but it sure doesn't take much...
The Janka Hardness Scale gives the relative density of woods used in flooring applications...

Fortunately, any woodworker worth his salt knows how to "Swell Out" dings & repair scratches with ease.

I add to the list of worst .22s the Remington 597. I bought one and it threw the ejector plunger on the third round. While mounting after market sights it became apparent that the dovetails on the receiver and the front sight post were off-center. Remington's quality has gone into the dumpster.

Remington isn't the only one with that irritating problem...

The solution is to buy older Winchesters that have been dicontinued. They're spendy but really worth the money, says the guy (me) that buys every one he can find.

I am not fond the remmingtons 597 what so ever. My grandfather owns one in .22lr I feel that the magazines do not stand up to rugers 10/22. In my opinion, remmington put more into how the rifle feels when you have it shouldered, than the basic operations of the firearm.

I agree...the triggers suck and they mess up badly the 2nd/3rd time you totally tear one down. They also dont do good in cold.

Despite all the bad things I have read about this gun on this site, I went out and bought one anyways. First time I shot it, it was 20 degrees and snowing out. Only 1 FTF which was ammo related. Recycled it and popped right off. I probably put 200 rounds through it. 1 at a time all the way to letting all 10 go as fast as I could. I think I put its through her paces. Trigger is a tad stiff for my liking but I'll make due. Not a deal breaker.I was shooting Remington ammo as well...... Maybe I got lucky? Who knows. I did strip her down and gave her a good cleaning before I did all of this. Dang Remington must of put 100 rounds through her, she was that dirty!

You are talking about a 597 right? They are good guns until you put about 2500 rounds through it and give it a thorough cleaning field stripping twice. Then the slide rail springs bend all to hell. I owned one and have worked on two more besides.
