Hi fellow AR addicts,
I stripped my P22 down for cleaning and I noticed a excessive wear in a spots. Im sure that this is not normal. I have not done any mods or upgrades, its bone stock with only around 1,000 rds. through it . I shoot Golden Rem. ammo with not problems.
Anyone have any idea why its doing this and what can be done to fix the problem ? Any response is greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Note Pic 2 and 3 are the same just a retake.

They have what I have found to be the best information on P22's. There is a very specific way to lube a P22, excessive "wet" lubes attract particles that wear on the slide etc, dry lube use is recommended. Theres a LOT of info there.

Thanks for the help sWs2! Sounds like its better to run them nearly dry. To bad a guy has to find out the hard way, since theres nothing in the manual specificing such problems. P22's are cool little guns dont get me wrong but they are picky little bastards. Walther should include a specific users guide of what ammo they like, what not to do ect. If it werent for forums like this there would be a lot of P22's in the trash.

goes on wet and when dry it leaves a teflon lube, does not attract dirt like oil
