Sold my Walther sp22 and never looked back. No more modern Walthers for me. Would like a Ruger Buckmark someday.

Is an sp22 the same as a p22 - or a predecessor?
I tried a p22 and it failed to feed and stovepiped.
Not so impressive.
It may have been just dirty, though.

Not sure what model came first. I would guess the sp22 came after the p22. I had the same problems, clean or not. Speaking of cleaning, the sp22 was a pain to clean.

I just bought a Walther P22. I bought Remington cheap ammo, federal HP bulk, CCI bulk, and CCI mini mags and took it out to the range after a cleaning with some Gunzilla. I ran through at least 100 rounds of each (only had 100 rounds of Remington and Mini Mags) and had zero FTF so far. I was concerned due to the reviews but I wanted a threaded barrel and was unwilling to spend $150 more for a Ruger aftermarket threaded barrel. I plan on going through a lot more ammo tomorrow.
The Sig Mosquitos are terrible. Even Silencerco tests using the Mosquito show that. I don't think they fired off a magazine without some kind of failure!

I have seen very mixed reviews of the P22. Some say it's awesome, and some say its junk. I have seen that the biggest complaint was FTFs with certain ammo.

That seems to be the answer with every semi auto 22. Everyone of those guns will shoot well with some type of ammo. My P22 shoots great with CCI Stingers.

I have a FIE E22 handgun that's a POS. It jams almost every shot with normal .22lr ammo, but it only jams 2 out of 5 times with sub sonics. I have fired those Aguila sniper sub sonics out of it with no, and recently I shot some Remington thunderbolts from it with surprisingly no issues.

Just an update in my brand new P22 testing. I put another 500 rounds through it. I had one FTF. It felt like a low powder charge and failed to move the slide at all. It was so weak, I checked for a squib.
Also, I had four failure to lock the slide back on the last round. All the failures were in the last 200 rounds involving CCI tactical ammo. I ran 50 rounds of Remington green box, 50 of CCI mini mag, 200 of Federal HP bulk and the rest was CCI tactical.

I have two Ruger 10/22 Takedowns - Save yourself the expense and headache of attaching a scope to the Takedown.

Because the barrel is not fixed and can be (however slight) moved when mounted, the barrel/receiver will never be perfectly aligned. For the gun to work properly with a scope, Ruger must find a way to attach the scope to the Barrel rather than the Receiver.

Until then, use the Iron Sights that come with the Takedown, or buy a 10/22 with a Fixed barrel.

That's good to know. Here I was thinking I wanted a 10/22 takedown. I'll just keep my stainless "regular" 10/22.

Ruger should find a way, but unless you like waiting, the shooter can find a way.
Where there is a will, there is always a way:

A cantilever rail mounted to the barrel via two small threaded holes is what is required.

Such scope rails can be ordered at
AR-7.com. (Also Brownells perhaps?)

They are designed to fit the steel target bull barrels they sell for the AR-7 .22s. So the radius of the underside of the scope base might be
a bit larger than the barrel of the 10/22.

These could still work with proper installation, but similar mounts with a matching barrel radius could probably be located. I'd have it mounted by a gunsmith unless you have a drill press or Bridgeport type mill & machinist/gunsmith skills.
