No they don't. They come with either 3.4 or 5 inch barrels. If someone has a 4 or 6 inch, then they replaced the barrel with something aftermarket and I haven't found one of those yet in a quick google search. I researched these particular firearms to death before plunking down hard-earned cash for one (now 3) and believe, those are the only barrel lengths.

I'm speaking of the newer Heritage 22 in general AND your little bitch fit about the guy rounding up the barrel length

Bitch about something of importance if you must----

Since you're the current expert--
Tell me about this one- Hint- Its dam sure don't have a 3.4 or 5 inch barrel

Very nice Hossfly. How new is that? When I got mine the only one available was blued.

I'll have to keep that picture away from my wife or I'll have to get her one of those too.

Thanks---
Honestly don't know how old---I know i've had it over 15yrs & bought it used but unfired -
Not many were made & never really any info one the nickeled models, took me a year years back searching auctions mostly to find a second one & then it had a shorter barrel & "pearl" grips. Kids have them now

Whatever- Principle still holds-
Why jump up & call bullshet on something so minor especially when you don't bother to specify what your calling it on ?
Hold it for when it should really be called-----------

He was referring to the quote in his post saying that the Walther came in 4 and 6 inch. Those numbers are wrong. Walther has only ever produced the P22 with the 3.4 and 5 inch. And he was pointing out that someone who said the P22 was crap didn't even know the actual barrel lengths. Any and all firearms models will have some sort of malfunction at some point given the sheer volume produced. However, I along with Sews don't see the P22 deserving to be on this list.

And that's not a bad lookin sixer you got there Hoss. For being over 15 years in your possession and unknown more years prior, she's clean as a whistle....and Purdy too!

I know this is a 22 discussion, but I've got a Walther P99qa in 9mm, and if the 22 is anything like it I expect it should work flawlessly.

You should avoid any firearm that is pointed at you, regardless of caliber.

It does. Mine has seen thousands upon thousands of rounds through it and it's like a timex watch, takes a lickin and keeps on tickin.
