Trouble with a Walther P-22

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

My neighbor bought a new P-22, and has been having difficulty with feeding. Tried different ammo makers, now using CCI mini-mags. still feed problems. Fires 4-5 okay, then starts to get balky. Pistol was well cleaned. Has anyone ever experienced these same types of trouble, know any fixes? Thanks!

Have you tried different mags or new mag springs? Most feed issues are related to mags more often than anything else.

I had the same issues with mine, and depending upon the brand, find that SP bullets generally feed better than HP. I have 3 extra mags, and none feed better....or worse....than the others.

An unrelated issue to your post is that the P22 front sight snaps in.....and just as easily, snaps out.....and it's gone.......

It would have been better to have a dovetailed front sight. Were I to make a recommendation, I'd suggest the Ruger SR22 instead of the Walther P22.
If you don't want to hear the answer, don't ask the question.

FWIW, I had one of these. First the bbl came loose and could not be tightened, at the same time it leaded so bad that the grooves would fill with lead. Sent it back to the company, better bbl, didn't come loose. BUT, you could not depend on the gun to feed. Some days you'd get several mags without a hitch, some days you couldn't get one to work all the way through. I fussed with mags, ammo types, lube, etc. and finally found the foolproof solution, I sold it!!
The other day I had a chance to wring out a new Ruger (very nearly like the P22) and I liked it a lot, the owner claimed that since he took it out of the box he had had NO problems with it feeding or otherwise, we did about 12 mags worth of shooting between the two of us and it was flawless.
Good luck with the Walther, they seem to be real fussy.
