I was wondering if any of you had a G22 or know somebody who has one?
I want to buy one for my daughter since I can get one cheap and it's capable of converting to lefthand use !! Well seams to be the best thing I can do... my daughter and I are both right handed left eye dominant so I thought it be easiest for her being 7 years old to get her started on left hand rifle shooting........
any input on the rifle at all .....anny isssues or problem areas

Thanks in advance

I'm looking very hard at one. CDNN has them for $279 in Grey. Currently you get a coupon for a free softcase from Walther and you can get a red dot/laser combo for $20. $350 out the door total with Tax (only bad thing I've found about being a Texan, gotta pay tax from CDNN).

Wondering if anyone has heard what/why CDNN has Grey ones. Is this going to do anything for value later on down the road? Are these just some wierd ones cuz the dye lot ran low at Walther and CDNN bought them all? ANy info please would be great.

I'm also seeing mixed reviews on this rifle but I'm in love with my P99c so I'm a new Walther COnvert and like the idea of this fun little rifle. I know it costs a bit more than a normal .22 rifle but are these things going to continue to hold their value or am I just paying extra for a Walther?

Thanks
Jamey

I have found other colors too... camo and some other color... so I think there is more and more out there that just doesn't get upated on the Walther page,,, thats all... I will link to another site that has some good prices without the salestax for you (they are in AZ)
Anyhow the main reason for me looking at this rifle however is the lefthand conversion... they are some out there that are already assebeled in LH... my daughter is righthanded but left eyed dominant so i thought this be the best thing to do

G22's... the more expensive ones have reddot or scope or laser

OK I just called...... they have some in Carbon fiber .. like I seen on some P22.... so there is many different finishes out there.... and you just pay extra for that.......
If you don't wanna pay salestax.. well there you go.. but then again their cheapest ones are $15 more and just in plain black,,, I like that grey from the ones on CDNN

Yeah it looks like the best bet is CDNN unless you just hate gray. I'm not sure how I feel about Gray. But the price is just too hard to beat. I went to one of the local shops today that is more likely to work on the price.

They had black for 400 bones. I told them about the CDNN deal with laser/sight etc and out the door with transfer fee for $350. Hoping he could come down some I was willing to pay a bit extra to be able to buy local because I like to do that sort of thing. Even the guy at the store said to buy it from CDNN. I guess when they got something they just cant be beat.

(think i'm gonna order that this week)

I have a green one and my 8 year old daughter loves to shoot with it. I tarted it up a bit with a vertical handle, Zeiss Z-Point sight, and suppressor (good to live in PA).



She loves hitting clay birds with it between 25-50 meters.

BTW, if you are somewhat comfortable with firearms, you can change it from right to left handed yourself. If you're not paying extra for it, then by all means get one already set up for left-handed mode, but I wouldn't pay extra for it when you can do it yourself.

It shoots very well with no issues. Just watch what ammo you feed it. I've found most ammo to work perfectly, but some ammo with a rounded, rather than pointed, bullet ogive can get caught up on the feed ramp from time to time. I find the Federal Target to work perfectly and be very accurate.

Any other questions, let me know.

Regards,
Jeff

Ummmm yea
I got one question for now
how did you add that suppressor .. how much was it and where did you get it,,,, I am not sure about the Utah laws on suppressors but I think we can have them.. guess I need to find out

Ditto that on the supressor info. Not sure about Texas law either but if PA can have it surely the great state of Texas would let a law abiding citizen such as myself have such a cool toy.

Best write-up I've seen on Class III (machine guns, suppressors, destructive devices, short-barreled weapons, and Any Other Weapon) ownership can be found here:

http://www.advanced-armament.com/owners.asp

Both Utah and Texas are Class III friendly, so if your local Sheriff is decent, he'll sign your Form 4 for you, then you pay the $200 to ATF, wait about 6 months, and away you go.

The can, BTW, is the AAC Pilot. Awesome unit. Fits my Walther P-22 very nicely as well.

For installing on my G-22, I sent it to Noveske rifleworks to do the threading. Lot of work, but you should try shooting it.

Very sweet.

HTH,
Jeff

Well I ordered the G22 today from CDNN. Got the package with the Reddot sight and laser. Hopefully in my hot little hands by Wednesday.


Anybody have any experience with the free bag from Walther or already have one that they purchased?
1. How long does it take bag to arrive from walther (smith)?
2. How cool/versitile is that soft bag?

Waiting.................ready to shoot.......... Kinda overkill for a 22 rifle for fun, kinda expensive but I'm almost looking foward to this one as much as I was my P99c

In Walthers 2005 catalog there is a G22 Sling ...... though I am not sure how to attach it ......I am sure if they sell the sling for the G22 there got to be a way to put it on the rifle
