The original P22s had an L prefix for the 3.4" barrel model and and N for the 5" version. This remained constant through 2009. I'm not sure when the WA got added or what it stands for. WA lther???? Fort Smith up and running? It would be easy to answer but we need some input from owners here with 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, etc. pistols. My 2012 is still in my sister's firm grip and apparently I didn't take any pictures of the serial number. The revised pistol with three rail slots, thicker slide came out in 2011....I think? The so called Q model fashioned after the PPQ ergo and grip. 1911

edit....beginning 2009 Walther dropped the second magazine and somewhere shortly after the trigger lock was deleted....but prezackly when...I don't remember.

Mine is a BA date code (2010 I presume) with an Lxxxxxxx serial number.

This thread might be a good place to sort this out if enough folks will respond. OK, you have a 2010 P22. The 2009 came with one magazine, still had the trigger lock and was the original P22 P99 ergo model with one slot in the rail.

Does your 2010 model still have the original grip with one slot and the key activated trigger block? Somewhere along here, IIRC, the trigger lock components and hole in the frame receiver were deleted and before the Q style was released.

When the Q style was released...2011 or 2012, the trigger block hole was eliminated, the thicker slide installed and the pistol had the Q style grip wth three slots. I just don't remember exactly when this all occurred or when WA was added to the serial number. 1911

I'll look at it closer tonight. Came to me with two mags, but one may have been purchased as I got the P22 in a trade (for a Sig Mosquito which is also notoriously ammo picky).

Update: From the box: 1 magazine included, no internal lock. The second mag was an aftermarket add on. Pistol still has one rail slot. There's a single pin holding the back strap in.

The factory mag has the pinky rest, carries the part number 265 93 44-B, has two short slots top and bottom on the front edge, and one long slot at the very back upper edge of each side.

Took a look at some P22s on gunbroker...BB appears to be the first year of the Q model, serial number begins with a Z, BC has a Z and BD has WA........ that is all I know about that. And not too sure about even that. 1917
