Walther P22... buy one or pass?
 
Thinking about a Walther P22 for a 2nd range plinker What do you all think... worth it ot not? :dunno:

Buy Ruger's version. . .

TKM 08-30-2012 11:34

Pass.

TxGun 08-30-2012 12:29

I'd pass. Not up to traditional Walther standards.

KCOG 08-30-2012 14:15

I own a P22 and an M&P22. I would pass on the P22 and get the M&P22.

I own 1 and it functions flawlessly, my wife shoots it all the time and loves it. Winchester M22 ammo goes quick through it.

I'm happy with mine

Do you have a Glock or 1911? If so, go with an Advantage Arms conversion. I have both for both platforms. They are amazing for trigger-time.

If you have neither....STILL pass on the Walther. It is worth $100 Max IMO

Get a Ruger SR22, do some research on youtube, you will see why. I bought one for my wife and I have had a few co-workers buy them 2 at a time.

I've got 2 Glocks. No 1911. Thought about the .22 conversion for one of my Glocks, but haven't seriously considered it yet. Maybe.

Just looked at the Ruger SR22. That may be a definite possibility. What do they cost?

Mine works. My friends didn't. He got rid of his.

That said. YMMV.

I had one, and it functions well. I never had any issues. They're accurate and fun to shoot. However, I acquired two conversions (one for a Glock 23 and one for a Sig P220) and a Ruger Mark II Target Competition with a Slatside barrel. So I had to get rid of something...it ended up being the P22.

I think after reading the reviews and stuff... I'm going to pass. I just can't get past the zinc alloy (pot metal) slide. I still enjoy the hell out of my S&W 22A-1, though. Keeping it, but still want a smaller auto plinker. SR22 is looking better & better.

Btdt
Its a umarex, pig iron
Pass

It is good for women and kids to shoot at reactive targets (cans, rocks, clay pigeons) and fun to suppress. The sights are terrible and will not produce any decent groups on paper.

If it is for a grownup, I would skip it and buy a M&P22, Browning Buckmark or a .22lr slide for an existing centerfire handgun.

Went ahead and bought the Ruger SR22 yesterday. Must be really popular because I called everywhere in northern middle Tennessee and the only place I found it was at Outpost Armory about 2 hrs drive from where I live. Was worth the trip. Just ordered a cheap laser sight for it off of Sportsmans Guide. Will test her at the range next friday. I'll post a range report then.

Enjoy the heck out of my P22. I understand the later ser #'s are improved. Mine is a 2012. Like it much better than the SIG Mosquito.

ArrowJ 09-07-2012 18:02

Mine ejected brass consistently...into my face.

I had a chance to shoot an SR22 just this past weekend. After 200 rounds or so, no feed issues that I can recall (with Federal plated), and reasonably accurate for such a tiny plinker.

Having shot similar from SIG and Walther, I would take the Ruger without further consideration- much prefer its barrel over the others.
