I had a P-22 and always had problems with it. It fired most of the time, but who knows where the bullets went.
I have an old(25-30 yrs) ruger 10/22 and love it. Never had a problem.
I also have a remington 597. This one depends on the ammo. It cycles most of the time, and can be a tack driver if the ammo stays consistant.
just my two cents.

I've had problems with the Marlin, tube-fed, semi-automatic .22s. I don't think it's a reflection of Marlin, but maybe my bad luck.

If it is perfectly clean it might cycle OK. But after about 20 rounds you have a fifty fifty chance of a misfeed or no feed.
i also have the p-22 its fun for the 50 rounds before i have to clean it and even in the first 10 rounds you cant hit s**t with it. Still fun for TRYING to shoot rabbits though lol

I've heard many complaints on the .22 Remington 522 Viper, mainly it jams
and awful lot. When I first shot mine using Remington ammo it did jam several times.

I switched to Winchester Super X ammo and have had no jams since.

Still, I would stay away from the Viper if one is in the market for a semi
auto simply for the reason that Remington's own firearm does not like to
feed Remington's own ammunition. One would think they would have
addressed this failure before marketing that Viper many years ago. Of
course the only Viper you'll get these days will be a used one as they're
not made anylonger to my knowledge.

My marlin 60 will eat anything I feed it provided it cleaned on a regular basis.
Most of the problems with semi is no maintenance or poor ammo selection.

Correct. Just because its a .22 rimfire it does not mean you can avoid the
maintenance required for a fully functional firearm. Testing and selecting what ammo works best is IMHO a must.

Default a few problem "children"

Ended up running a range that some expert had equipped with 12 Daisy .22s. By summer's end we were down to eight in safe operating order. The rifles came with adjustable stocks,which when someone was missing the first thing they wanted to do was---. One the barrel liner and barrel became loose, one the receiver was cast and had an air pocket, one was the smoothbore configuration (for "mousekeet", .22 cal trap), and---.
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.

Default Walther p22

I bought a walther p22 for my wife about 6 or 8 months ago. We have fired a few 550 round boxes through it and it has had no problems at all and it is very accurate.

I had a love/hate relationship with my Ruger MkII semi pistol. It was accurate, functioned reliably and fit my hand well. It was also an ungodly pain in the ass to break down to clean. I only shot it a few times and traded it in toward another firearm.

The Ruger MkII can be a pain to reassemble I've found it to be well worth it.
