Walther G22

Picked up my newest addition the friday, and went out and shot 'er some saturday.

Not bad with Remington Thunderbolt. But the Federal bulk stuff is horrible with FTF.

Pictured with my little beater P22.

Thinking about picking up a cheapo red dot tube for it sometime. We'll see.
Shot enough lizards with it to feed a small african village saturday though.

I had a grey one before. That I set up as a lefty for a friend of mine before I sold it to him. It's one pin, and one spring.

I picked up a G-22 a few weeks ago.

So far, I have only used CCI Mini-Mag 40 gr. R.N. ammo.

NO failures to feed, fire, or eject so far. Up to now, I have approx. 400 rounds through the rifle.

My only negative so far is that I have yet to have the rifle lock back on the last round.

If I manually pull the bolt back, it locks with no problem.

If this is the worst thing I can say, I am happy.

I can't find Mini-Mag locally. So I gotta run it with what I have. Gonna work on polishing up some contact points this week and see if it'll eat bulk more readily.

I heard that it is a pain to field strip and clean. Anyone have any problems field stripping it?

This is basically true.

Getting the rifle apart is really not a problem.

BUT.... There are two TINY springs that fall out easily.

Actually, the worst is the last shot hold open. It has a "V" shaped spring that is approx the length and thickness of an eyebrow hair.

This spring has virtually nothing holding it in and will fly. Being so small and fine, finding it again is a problem.

On the other side is the magazine safety spring.This spring fits into a detente and is somewhat more sturdy. I had it fall out once while cleaning the rifle.

This spring is approx. the length of a grain of rice and somewhat thinner. It is also made of a very fine wire.

I looked and looked, but could not see the spring. FINALLY I placed my finger down onto my cleaning cloth and FELT it.

Outside of these two springs, there is nothing to hinder dis-assembly or cleaning of the rifle.

Take my advise and order SEVERAL more from Walther BEFORE you lose one or both, because YOU WILL LOSE THEM.

BTW, outside of this, I love the rifle and would buy another in a minute.

Hope this helps.

What is a decent price for a used one? I have seen one for sale for $300.00

The owner said it has about 2 boxes (100 rounds) through it. He never cleaned it after shooting it. He said it has been in the safe for about 3 years. It has a laser mounted under the front sight and a cheap red dot scope mounted on the carry handle.

He won't go a penny under $300.00 for it. Is this a good deal? How does this rifle compare to a stock Ruger 10-22 in terms of accuracy?

Since no one else is stepping forward, I paid $435.00 for one new in the box.

This is probably somewhere in the middle of the price range.

Take the dot and the laser, but don't pay extra for them. If they are the Walther products, they are neat to have, but not the best of quality.

This is simply one mans opinion.

$300 if a good deal. I grabbed this one for $275. But they guy gave me $100 off of what he was asking because I'm a Marine.
GunBroker - Walther G22

Most are selling for $400+ and that doesn't include shipping and transfer... So you're probably looking at almost $500 OTD most of the time.
______________________________

As for stripping and cleaning. It's rather easy to get it apart, like banger said. But you have to watch for the springs. I just hose mine out with wd-40...

And for accuracy, it has a 20" barrel... so it'll keep pace and/or match a stock 10/22 all day long. I haven't shot any paper with it yet, but when I do I'll get some pictures up.
