    There is one for sale locally. I was thinking about purchasing it for my wife who has just started shooting. She has fired my Glock 17 the recoil is a little too much for her right now. I was wondering if there was any experiences with one these. Good or bad.

    They have a history of failure. Fail to feed, fail to fire, fail to eject. I've see quite a few pics of them that went kaboom. I have one it never leaves the safe. The s&w .22 I always reach for. In the general same price range and no problems at all. Also very accurate.

    I think mountainman meant Ruger Sr22. Looks almost identical to the p22 but quality is way way better. If it's not what he meant I'd still suggest it. Hehe

    The guys asking $300.00 for it. It's two tone olive drab. With threaded barrel.

    I'm sure the ruger is great. I don't have one though.

    +1 on the ruger SR22. Very reliable practically identical to the Walter if you ask me. A bit of a biotch to take down and clean though.

    +2 for the Ruger
    The p22 is very picky on ammo and jammed more than any gun I've ever had. The ruger sr22 will shoot anything accurately

    nah, disassembly is very easy. re-assembly can be tricky sometimes. just have to find the sweet spot. ive already done it enough times that its no problem i can feel right where the slide needs to be

    Love my Walther. I got rid of my SR22 because of the trigger. GunTest magazine consistently rates the Walther an "A" while giving the the SR22 a "B" rating. Yes' mine was a little finicky with ammo to begin with but I have had no problems after the couple of hundred rounds. My brother gave his a good oiling before the first time out and never had a problem. Walther says the problem was the magazines and have since changed the spring. I would buy another P22 in a heart beat!
