I just joined this forum and about to pick up my second P22. First one had issues. Okay with Federal/Remington, crappy with others. Just started stocking up on CCI minimags, stingers and velocitors. Since I have a couple 10/22's, I'll run the standard velocity out of those. Have not tested the CCI's on the P22, but will be doing it once I pick up the second one.

Has anyone polished the portion of the hammer that catches on the slide? I've sanded mine down a little and just need to polish. Going to polish the feed ramp too. Just wondering if this helped with FTE/FTF issues.

Thank you.

Add to the list of good ammo for my Walther P22.

This Federal Black Box ammo.

I actually bought it because it came at a cheap price and with an extra rebate too. Whatever....it works!

Aloha, Mark

Basically all bulk cheap .22 LR ammo will have some FTF's and FTE's out of a semi-auto pistol. I even get a occasional FTE from my 10/22 rifle and that thing runs like a clock. It's just the nature of the round. They are inconsistent in manufacturing. You have to live with it unless you buy the more expensive CCI stuff. That being said, the P22 requires high velocity ammo to cycle it. Just about any high velocity ammo will work, but some will work better than others. I have even had some boxes of exactly the same brand of ammo work better than other boxes of the identical ammo brand. Go figure.

Walmart Remington Thunderbolts, 500 round box $15.

Remington Thunderbolt 500 round boxes are under $15 at Walmart right now! Not my favority ammo, dirty as heck. But it works pretty good and can't argue with 3 cents a round!

The Thunderbolt has been flawless in my P22.

Anyone try the highest end Lapua or Eley in their P22's?? This high end ammo does very well in target rifles. Has anyone ever checked them out in a P22??
Ive been through sk pistol match, velocitor, cci mm solid, hp, win sx. Nothing repeatable. Groups are 2'' plus at 7 yards with my p22q w/laser from a solid rest.
I have shot high end 22 ammo before in my rifles, and they are the real deal. My 10/22 loves the Elely Tenex. I won't be competing or shooting a thousand cans every weekend. I just know that sometimes great ammo can make a inexpensive firearm shoot like one that costs $$$.
My tricked out Kimber gold combat with the conversion use to groups very tight with a variety of ammo. I sold the conversion because re-zeroing the laser was a pain.
