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.
