My Walther P22 has been really good after the first 200 rounds or so. I've put thousands of Federal HP's through it and the only FTF has been from the rare misfire. The first 200 rounds were terrible. It would fail to feed half the time and didn't like any kind of ammo. At first, I really thought it was junk but I like it now.

Funny, most of these guns functioned well enough,

fresh from the LGS, to not merit returning for an exchange.

That is, before they got jammed with burnt powder...

Remington ammo fails a lot...try some CCI and see how it works
