P22 Won't Fire (Corrected Title)

At the range, shot about 40 rounds through my P.22 and then nothing. Seems the firing pin isn't striking the edge of the round. I'm new to this gun, so any and all help with appreciated. Also, the person who had it before me had issues with it jamming.

Your thoughts oh Guru's of the Walther?

Welcome Jtfoto...what pistol do you have. Is it an old, steel PPK made in Germany, a Manurhin model or an Interarms import, etc. or is it one of the Umarex cast zinc models from Ft Smith, AK?

If a steel PPK this isn't quite the right section but close enough for some discussion. Here are a few things. Make sure the chamber is clean and a round drops in easily. Other wise a dirty chamber can hang up a round and cause it to give as the firing pin hits it.

Make sure the safety if off and stays off. Make sure the firing pin is freely moving and fully resetting. If there is dirt in the channel and the firing pin won't move freely it might not be resetting all the way to the rear and if it doesn't....the hammer can't hit it properly. Of course the pin could be broken but it is doubtful it would be working, not working, working again, etc.

But, exactly what pistol do you have? M1911

I guess the first question I have is it a PPK/S 22 or a P22? Two totally different guns.

Yepper......steel PPK, actual PPK which will answer enough about what pistol it is or is it a zinc PPK/S or P22 from our friends at Umarex? I'm guessing.....P22 and the safety is set to safe.....wouldn't be the first time... And if so....at least Jtfoto will know his safety works. M1911

Pictures would be helpful. Please include close-up shots of the field-stripped pistol field.

Salutations oh masters of the Walther.... Sorry, I listed in the headline PPK, and in the body of my message P22. It is in fact a P22. And even worse (hanging head in shame) M1911 has the winner. The safety is in fact set. But hey, at least I know it works, right?!

In my defense, I had my sons wife shooting it. I didn't even think to look if the safety was set, as we were also shooting my PPQ 9MM. (No safety) But regardless, I never even thought to check the damn safety.

Of course if they would put a proper safety design on it...say, M1911 style...all would be good. Did any pistol ever have a cross bolt type safety like a shotgun or rifle might have? Jtfoto, don't feel bad...about 100 posters have proceeded you with the same miscalculation. Speaking strictly for me....I like manual safeties on all my firearms....or in the case of the P99 at least a decocker. But if given the choice of a manual safety....I'd purchase that model. I've had to pull my carry several times and for some reason I just don't get excited and am conscious of exactly what I need to do regarding the safety. No quick draw gunslinger ever required. Of course the P22 isn't a self defense firearm. So, give me a manual safety of some type. M1911
