i love the way they look. i want one for myself and a few to sell. i am trying to decide which model to get for myself though.

my questions are:

1. can you get the 5" barrel with nickle to match the nickle slide?
2. can you get threaded barrels ( or would i do better to get the 5" and thread it)?
3. what can i expect for accuracy?
4. who has the best dealer prices?

The factory barrel should have threading covered by a protector nut. I don't think the threading will accept any cans readily. You have to buy an adapter that screws onto the barrel threads and contains the threads for the appropriate can.

Dave...
Please tell us how you really feel haha

I am glad to hear that as I could not keep a good group when I tested one at the range.

I returned it to the demo counter right away and went back and took my P7M8 out to get my confidence back

i love my P22.. it's accurate for me. Not too mention cheap to slap a can on it . It's a fun gun to plink with. IMO

mostly i would want the silencer so i could shoot at rabbits and mountain grouse while deer/elk hunting. realizing the limited range of a pistol, does this sound doable?

also, does anyone know of a better/more accurate alternative without spending too much on the gun for this purpose. i was thinking less than $800 with the tax stamp and all.

Tactical Innovations sells an adapter for the Walther that fits a 1/2-28 threaded can. That size is very common for .22 cans (same as AR muzzle too).

Don't know about the 5" version but the 3.5" version keeps .22LR Hi Velocity in the subsonic range which eliminates the "crack".

If you like Ruger MK II or 22/45 better, they can be threaded for the can. Both are also available with an integral can that LOOKS like a bull barrel.

The biggest problem I have with them is they are like a 7/8ths gun...they are just too small IMO. I can kind of come up with a complaint for any .22 semi auto, so I'm looking for a S&W 617 4 inch...
