I have to agree with that- I bought one for the kids to shoot when I go to the outdoor range and they have 2,000+ rounds through mine and not one single issue!

Sometime later I purchased a Ruger Mark II "Competition " slabside, and found after 20 rounds it began to hang up and not chamber fully. A trip to Alhmann's in Moristown to get the chamber cleaned up left me with a super .22.
+1 Imagine a real .22 made more cheaply than a daisy air-gun. Pot metal, painted, hollow toy plastic...

I can't stop bragging about my Savage Mark II, it is so much fun to shoot. The accuracy is unbelievable.

I have seen a lot of flack on the Walther P22 and I have one and love it. Many are picky on the ammo but mine shoots all types whether HP or not. I have only found one type that it hasn't fired well and I have tried half a dozen or more types. The first 100 rounds I fired out of it were not the best but after that it did and does do great. It really does depend on what one you get and I seem to have gotten a good one. Also I have seen some where the slide just breaks off but these all had the extended barrel. So far I have had zero issues except for the worthless American Eagle Federal ammo. At least I can use the rest of that ammo on my rifle.

I still have a Jennings .22 that I bought 30 years ago and the box is marked $49.95!! It's a piece of junk with at least a 20 pound trigger pull. I can't believe I even bought the thing.

My wife has had one of these for almost a decade, thousands of rounds through it with zero malfunctions...If I had to buy a .22 based solely on reliability, this would be on my short list.

I have one of those that was found in my father's estate. I thought I knew every gun he owned, but I guess he was too ashamed to admit having the Jennings. It is a POC and I have thought of destroying it, but have decided that a better way would be to wait for a BuyBack and get $50 or a $100 for it to spend on ammunition!

The 2nd one and I bought it to replace the Walther, was a Sig Mosquito. There was no such thing as going thru a single mag without at least 5 or more failure to feed problems. I would never recommend either of the above mentioned pistols.
Agreed... Had sig mosquito junk.... Friend has walther equally junk.
