well with the ammo hording that was going on a few years ago, the addition of a Ruger LCR .22lr, and my Ruger MKII, the Walther just didn't get the spot light like it did in the beginning.

An awful lot is riding on the ammo used with the P22. Weak stuff just doesn't make the pistol function like snappy ammo. What part of Bama? 1917

my [P22] has eaten everything from bulk Remington thunderbolts, to Winchester and Federal bulk cartons and of course the good stuff.

There should be some good fishing in your neck of the woods. I've only barely been through your County when heading down Hwy 280. Yeah, that ammo hoarding got really old. Hope some people choked on it. Glad to hear the 2008 P22 is running fine. Remember, it has a lifetime warranty should you have any issues. 1917

Bish02, another question for you since you apparently have a very, very early pistol. Does your slide have a hardened pin inserted into the sidewall at the hold open notch? Later pistols do, this pin is very effective in stopping the slide hold open arm from rounding off the zinc at the notch. You do have to keep an eye on the top, rear area of the arm though as the pin can peen a sharp upper lip on the catch which can scrape zinc off the left, bottom side of the slide. 1917

Yes you have the hardened pin and you need a new extractor pronto from what I see. Ft Smith will send you one...looks like it might have cracked off. 1917

It looks like the tip is gone. I'll put up a picture of what one looks like. Perhaps it is just the way the photo looks.



Picture of a VQ extractor.



New style P22 extractor.



The original extractor was cut straight in leaving a huge gap between the rim and extractor tip which caused ejected cases to fly everywhere. Above is a drawing I did back in '04 or so to show how the original extractor could be carefully peened with a small hammer to reduce the gap. Do not try this with the later extractor...the tip will break off. 1917
