Jeeze,I find my Mk I to be no problem at all to strip down. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

It's easy once you've done it a few times.

I once bought a new Remmigton Viper. Don't recall any problems with it. I sold it 'cause it was boring.
I also bought a Walther P22 new. It would NOT feed. Anything. I finally sold it back to the gun shop I bought it from. I did very much like it other than that, though. Looks cool, feels nice, awesome mag release. My buddy bought the same gun a few years ago and initially had the same problems. He persisted, and to the SAME gun shop's suggestion, fired a bunch of rounds thru it to break it in. Now he says it behaves nice, and shoots accurately. CCI is it's favorite) I'm thinking of trying another.........

As much as it surprises me, I must disagree. I have a .22 SA revolver (a Colt clone) I bought NIB back around 1980 and it still works as well as the day I got it. I also have a Beretta clone in .380 my wife's father got sometime back in the 70's. After he died in the early '90s my wife found it in a closet and we've had it ever since. Both were imported by FIE and while not exactly Colt or S&W quality firearms, both have been reliable and shoot whatever we can put down the barrel. Maybe their standards changed over the years, but the two FIE imports I shoot have never caused me any problems.

OTOH, the only 22 I've ever had any problems with was a nickle, AMC SA auto - essentially a scaled down version of a 1911 - got in the 80's as a "Pocket" pistol. I couldn't get that gun to fire a complete magazine w/o a failure of some sort no matter what I tried or what brand of ammo I used. I finally gave up, traded it in on a Ruger 10/22 and never looked back.

I have a H&R 929 that missfires at least 1 round out of every cylindar and not usually the same position in the cylindar. I also have a Mossy 702 that functions perfectly but is all over the paper with open sights or scope. I have never been able to get it to group well enough to move up from the 25 yd. target to the 50 yd. target. It's best group at 25 yds. is 5 inches. It feels like a toy gun. On the other hand a have a Remy 5 teen that is a 2 MOA with home made Irons.

Not sure what you were trying to run through that p22, but 36 grain in mine is "no bueno", 40is just right
Really nice gun IMO... Able to draw a smiley face at10 yds.

Default bad .22's

Im not shure its bad gut it aint great, the Davis D-22/DM-22 the tiny stack barrel darringer with the spur trigger.........the funkey mechanism and the 24pound trigger pull make for less than accurate shooting past 6 yards.
