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 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
Well as soon as my taxreturn is here I am getting one too..... I most likely will buy it from them
due to CDNN has no lefthanded ones..... I am stoked and so is my lil gurl..... it be our range gun for her to blinker with and Dad can enjoy it too
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
Thanks for that info... sweet I will have to get the G22 first thoug..

Very sweet.

How much was it to have the barrel threaded

Go to the Walther webpage and click on the Firearms link I belive then on the G22
on the top right is a add for the coupon and a link to the coupon to fill out,,,, you need the price I belive, date of purchase and the serial # ... print it then mail it in and just wait,, I have no idea how long it will take to get it though
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
Sling   for the Walther G22 attached
I found the pic on another forum.. either Glocktalk or AR15 .. both have a Walther Forum... it belongs to somebody who has also a P22 I belive.. I can't remeber now,,, I was over there and saw the pic and thought damn just as I wrote a post about the Walther sling... and then there was a pic of it

I found a place in Germany that has already threaded barrel's  on 20 and the other 25 iches.. but currently not for import..
so I think you will have to take it off and send it to that place where jgilbertson send his
yes there is a threaded one in Germany... there is 2 as a matter of fact
one is 20 inches long the other is 25 inches long
I ordered my daughters G22 today along with some extra mags for the G22 and my P99c

now it's just a long wait I guess
Mine should be here within the next few days.....
I did order the Walther red dot sight from S&W and the sling...
I did not get the laser and Dot sight from CDNN though....but ordered 3 extra mags for the G22 and my P99c each
So it does come wiht a hard case already ??
That's cool

Well I can't wait.. the trip to pick up the G22 will also include a copy of my dealers FFL so I can have my P5 shipped to me.... god lord so many new toys for the family....
Have you seen that new Beretta Cx4Storm, that I think will be my next one.. or the H&K P2000SK 9mm I put on hold for the P5....
anyhow I post when I get them
It looooks soo sweet... and the case it comes in isn't of bad quality neither.....
Reading up first, I need to find out how to change the setup to left hand use before I can do anything with it
then I need a day at the range..... wow it is another datecoded AE Walther
Well I seen some packages of the Cx4storm in 9mm or .40S&W that will take the new Px4 mags.......
the gunstore I will buy it had a .45 and .40 in ..
the .40 didn't take the Px4 mags though..... anyhow I will need to get some more cash first.... I spent like 2K on guns in recent 2 months.... so I need to slow down a lil bit....

but thanks mambro I will be checking in there soon I think.....
Ummmmm I had a blast at the range today.....
I had changed my setup to left hand yesterday... and took her out..... Used some CCI minimags (spelling) and it worked fine.... however that damn hex-screw on the bottom of the butt is a pain.. kinda need to be careful not to overtighten it....
also I noticed that my extractor is hitting the barrel.... So tomorrow I will take it appart again... clean it .. and see what I cand do about the extractor hitting the barrel... other than that... I few failers to feed properly... but no big deal... it was a cheap plinker.. and once I get the lil bugs worked out it will be rocking my daughters world....
As said so many times before..... It is a rifle that draws attention,,,, I had some other guy "beg" me to let him shoot it.... though he was righthanded.... so I told him left shoulder or you will loose your teeth,,, after 20 rounds he was sold..

Sooo overall... worth $300 bucks out the door

Ohhhhh one questions though.....
for what the rifle is worth..... and me being a first time rifle shooter.... at like 35 feet what would be a good group for open sight shooting
Standing without any support are 2 inch groups ok
See less See more
I find the biggest problem to be the front sight... it is all black.. there is no white dot on it...
I too was talking about the stock sights on the G22....
I have posted pics of my G22 setup before... though the red-dot is never on the G22 since my daughter shoots it too and she will learn how to use iron (plastic/iron in this case) sights.
My next item for the G22 is a bipod just to make it easier on my daughter to hold the rifle steady ...
