I got to handle one the last time I was in a gun shop, but have yet to fire an SP22 yet. I was just curious if anyone else has had any experience with them yet.
From page 7 of the SP 22 manual:Insert the empty magazine, retract the slide. The slide should be locked back in its rearmost position by the slide stop lever (only if the bigger magazine button is installed).
7 Pistol with empty magazine
After the last round has been fired, the slide stop holds the slide in the open position (only if the bigger magazine button is installed - if the smaller magazine button is installed the slide will travel forward into battery). Place the manual safety in the safe position. If you intend to continue shooting, replace the empty magazine with a full one. Pull cocking levers rearward and release (fig. 17), the slide will travel forward and load the chamber with the first round. Keep your pistol in your shooting hand and pointed in a safe direction so that there is no danger to other persons.
I bought the 3.4 barrel all black. No qualms just a really fun gun to shoot! I just bought some subsonics to try out this weekend as well as some CCI Velocitors...
