Anyone have one yet?

The price is pretty comparable to other .22s out there, so I was wondering how they stack up against the competition.

Try doing a search on 'walther p22. There have been many posts here lately on this pistol. I want one...

They are very nice! We use them as a basis for our 22 suppressor and they work great for that. We have sold a number of them along with a suppressor and each and every customer has loved them.

Unfortunately suppressors are a no-no for me here in MO. Takes a bit of the fun out of it.

My C3 has a P22 with the AWC can, I need to get them to let me play around with that one of these days...

Ditto-

I have big hands and it was just way too small for me.

I've looked at them and love them. They appear to be a great little gun. My Brother will be picking his up first part of May so I will give you a range report when he does. For $199 it cant be beat.

Those of you who say its to small for your hands. Have you asked to try some of the other Palm Swells that it comes with Also ask to try the magazine that has the finger groove also included with the gun.

I picked up the target version with the optional short barrel and gemtech adapter. I love mine in both configurations. I put the short barrel on it the other night an I had a birdcage flash hider laying around an put it on. It looked pretty cool! I am saving for the can now.

4000 plus rounds so far and still going

I bought one back in January, yes it is alittle small for larger hands. I get by with it ok, with the larger grip insert. It is very accurate and smooth. I did expeierence problems with it though. The hammer spring broke after 52 rounds of standard vel. ammo. After a month at Smith I got it back and seems to work fine. Draw backs that I can see, the safety is very hard to engage/disengage and you really have to crunch up your hand to release the mag. It's not the easiest to take apart. I do like it because of it's light weight. If I had to do it over again, I would stick with my Browning Buckmarks.

A sick joke of a pistol.

Who buys most of the pistols in the US?...Males

Who is this pistol made for? Children? Small women? Little guys about 5'2" with hands you can do manicure ads with?

It's cute, that's for sure...sure doesn't fit any guys hand I know...even with the "big grip".

Pretty pathetic attempt at a chick glock in .22.

My German made .22 PPK/s will beat this pathetic pistolette every time...

Well, just for the record, my hands are big enough that I bleed every time I fire a PPK. The slide serrations act like a saw against my skin if I fire more than about 20 rounds or so. I sold my PPK two years ago and have no regrets. The P22 works just fine in my hands (no blood so far) and hasn't misfired or misfed in the 800 rounds I have through it so far.
