Some of the new Sig models do not look of the quality expected in Sig, I have not had the opportunity to manage one on the range. Buckmark is definity a sweet shooter and quality. I have a Savage .22lr MKIIFV?? and would put it up against anything out there at 50yard accuracy.

I have a Sherry, made by a small firm in Idaho, that has never cycled properly. Stovepipes a lot. Reviews say it's not bad for a .22 the size of a cigarette pack.

Wish they'd do a heavy barrel XT22 with those old Match barrels like the first-year 880SQ's...
they got the leftover Marlin 2000 Biathelon barrels...YUM!!

For that matter, they oughta redo the 2000, make a real Olympic Contender for Our time!!

Default walther

walther is a fine gun maker and have been making quality guns for years that is until smith and wesson got involved. (google re-call on walther / smith and wesson) . i've owned both. a true pre s&w ppk/s and a new walther ppk . the new one , would make a dandy paper weight since it's too lightweight to make a good anchor. hard to bet your life on something as unreliable as these things are

I bought a Rem Nylon 66 back in 1977 for apx $75.00 NIB & never looked back. Still working like it was back then,Took a lot of Chucks with that gun & the CCI stingers with its open sights,The receiver on the nylon 66 was not made to hold a scope,Just keeps slipping off it.

I would respectfully disagree, first of all, I would not bet, secondly I would not depend on any man made product/component for saving my life. Having said that some weapons are better than others. Shot placement regardless of caliber is primary in winning in any fight. The walther works well for some and not for others. If you looking for perfect quality in a weapon, Wilson Combat professes that perfection. What are you willing to kill for and die for is the question we need to address at the start. Salut, wm

I own THREE FIE pistols: Two Super Titan II's in .22 and one in .380 ACP. After intial teething problems (breaking in periods), I have enjoyed the hell out of them. And, I have owned all three since the middles 1980's when I bought them new.

Many firearms, when taken out of the box and fired have problems. Even Kimbers and Glocks.

Spend some time with your firearm before you crap on it.

"Spend some time with your fiream before you.....". Wise advice! It is best to work with any tool to get familiar with it. 2,000 rounds should be the start of a talking point!

i happen to be one of the few that fully believes , after a normal break in period your firearm should be trouble free . by normal break in i mean one box not 2000 rounds . if the firearms shows any sign of trouble i deem it ,trade bait. i do follow the recalls closely and will avoid any firearm or any company that fails to make a quality product. would you tolerate your car "acting up" for lets say the first 2000 miles . if i buy a gun and it wont feed my ammo of choice i wont "tune it up" polish the feed ramp, open the ejection port etc.... in my opinion the key to reliabilty is keeping the gun clean, using only well made clean buring factory ammo, and lubrication . if you have to tweak, adjust, or modify a firearm to make it worth well it's not the gun for me . that is the factorys job
