1917,

You can change anything you'd like on your handguns. Except a few couple things.
PC 30515(a)(4) states:
Assault Weapon means: semiautomatic pistol that does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of the following:
- Threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer
- Second handgrip
- Shroud attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the
barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon w/out
burning the bearer’s hand, except a slide that encloses the
barrel
- The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip

So no Threaded barrels, no vertical foregrips (makes it a NFA item anyways). At least those two are applicable to the P22 anyways.

So captured guiderod, and the all in one 5" target barrel, grip tape, if you wanna scratch off the CA on your slide; you could, Lasers, optic "bridge". Those are all good to go.

I'm not an expert on the regulations, but I think most modifications are legal as long as it isn't specifically restricted. For example full auto would be out--although that's not just CA. Pretty sure threaded barrels are also off limits. The recoil spring shouldn't be a problem at all. Also, almost all of the firearms I own, other than my .22 pistols, either have aftermarket triggers or have had trigger work done. In fact a previous restriction on modifications on concealed carry weapons was just lifted in my county, to include aftermarket triggers, porting, cerakoting, etc. Even high capacity magazines are now allowed as long as they were legally obtained, which always seemed like something that would be hard to prosecute anyway unless they pass an outright possession ban (which I think some counties have done or tried to do). I personally have a lot of magazines that I can't buy legally any more, but which used to simply be the standard magazine available at the time, like 30 round AR mags, 15 round 9mm, etc. Thankfully, they're fine in my county--for now at least.

In that case I'd order the Walther captive RSA, drill the guide rod hole to 1/4" and go shooting. It appears very well made to me. 1917

In some of my research on the P22, Walther puts lock tight on the barrel screw so its almost impossible to take off on some models. Is this true 1917

Yes, California model....The P22 landed on the CA prohibited assault firearm ban because of the threaded barrel. Walther was able to work out a deal to eliminate this feature by installing a barrel nut with no wrench lands for removal and with some type of locking glue. If other States prohibit the easy to suppress feature of the pistol (a selling point for purchasing the P22 where legal) it is likely CA models can be sold there.

Over the years Walther added a small O ring at the rear of the barrel nut to help keep it tight on non CA pistols.

So yes, the CA model comes with a barrel nut glued on tight and with no slots for a wrench to remove it. 1917
