They are located on each side of the magazine well, towards the top. They'll be exposed and/or fall out when you remove the two pins and separate the system from the breech housing.

The magazine safety (the one with the small round spring) shouldn't cause any real problems; the biggest problem being losing its spring. It's the bolt catch and its flat v-shaped spring that seem to cause people the most grief.

Tested Rounds

First off all, not being able to find .22lr ammo is bull****. Shot the last of my Federal copper hollow points 2 trips ago. Was forced to buy the Blazer 40gram lead round nose rounds. Couldn't go a clip without 2 jams. So bad put G away after about 8 clips.

Went out again about 2 weeks ago with the same Blazer rounds and no idea or plan of what to do. Started with the Blazers again and after half a clip it jammed again. Crap. My buddy let me shoot use his Winchester copper hallow points and absolutely no problems. Mixed in a clip of the Blazers and once again it jammed. Fired the copper hallows and not one jam. Buddy also had a different lead round nose rounds and those also jammed just like the Blazers. I was so excited to figure out my problem being the rounds. Going into it I had strong suspicion's that I needed the copper hollow points. Now need to find some damn rounds.

What the hell is REALLY going on in that we can't even find .22lr. Comon man.

Springs and other problems

I've found that the only ammo that at one point historically was a reasonable price and consistently shot was 40grain win superX so I've stuck with it for the last 7 years and have never had a problem.

Can I remove the magazine safety pin all together? What does it prevent? Everything seems to function the same without it. I have kept my slide stop without a spring for about 5 yrs and finally lost the spring to the mag safety while cleaning it today.

I know that this is an old post, but if someone could explain specifically which two springs the gun runs reliably without, I'd appreciate it - I am having the same kinds of problems. I've attached a graphic of the Walther G22 I received from Walther when I ordered some parts - are the two parts #53 and #60?

THANKS!

Thanks Adrianw - I'll have to get into the gun again and look, but IIRC, #52 was gone already when I bought the gun used - I took it apart when I swapped the gun from left-handed to right-handed following a YouTube video, but I didn't re-assemble it with the parts diagram picture in front of me - so I didn't know it was missing.

I had a heck of a time with #53 - FINALLY got it in correctly, but I think I'm gonna take it out when I clean the gun.

The other thing I have to do is oil it better - some of the other 22LRs I have prefer to run almost dry - this G22 appears to need more lubrication.

Thanks

Thanks very much.

LOL, it's not a friendly gun to clean - I'll have to ask Glock to make a 22LR bullpup!
