Hi there! Glad to be a part of the forum!

I am just wondering if anyone has had a problem with the G22 in terms of it jamming a lot. I bought one, took it to the range the next day, and shot about 100 rounds through it. I was using CCI high velocity rounds. Then I tried 50 rounds of the CCI mini mags. Then, another 50 of the winchester high velocity rounds.

One to two rounds of every clip jammed.

I loaded the gun up a couple of times, put one in the chamber, and expelled it, and noticed a scratch on the jacket of the bullet. Did it again, same thing. Did it a couple of times, same results. The basic lead bullet with no jacket, had a scratch. The jacketed rounds came out crooked.

I sent it back to walther about 3 weeks ago. :(

Just wondering if anyone else has had any problems like this.

I read that the G22 does better with standard velocity than high velocity. I had the same jamming problem with the winchester hv, but it was fine with cci standards. Hope that helps a little

I was a little tired when I made that post. Didn't explain fully. lol.

When I was used the standard velocity, there was no jams, however, for the hell of it, I expelled a couple of good rounds, and the bullets actually had dent marks in them.

Crap, I wish I had a picture of the firing chamber so I could show you guys what I saw with it, but I was too pissed to think about that. lol

I noticed the same thing on mine. I hope this disen't effect accuracy much. I haven't had a problem with them jamming though. But if I load it and eject a good round the bullets dented down where the bullet meets the case. I cycled my action slowley to see what was going on and it almost looks like the feed angle is too extreme. Let me know what you find out from Walther. Thanks

I just got my rifle back from Walther. It looks like they made the angle less extreme for feeding. Going to shoot hopefully tommorow, I'll post my findings! :)

Kind of hard to see, and I don't have pictures before they repaired it, so I can't compare. Hope it works tommorow flawlessly! :D

To tell you guys the truth......
I wish Walther wouldn't put their name on things they don't make....
the P22 and G22 both are made by Umarex...... (see how it is not proofed in Ulm)
I took my G22 appart after the first range session and did some work and since it has been flawless..... I didn't do anything to the feedramp since it is alloy. I did some work on the barrel and the extractor cutout since I switched it to LH ejection....

That bothers me, but I don't care as much, since I shot the rifle today and it went VERY well. The rounds are no longer being scratched as they are being put in the chamber. Everything is smooth and works great. Had one jam with an expelled casing, but other then that its fantastic!

Oh how I have missed it. :D

Yoda, are these the same problems you were having? First pic shows 1 of 2 "logjams" when I tried to chamber the first round in mag. I guess the round popped up a little when mag was seated. The next 2 are of just about what every round looks like if you chamber and eject it unfired. The 4th is just my setup with results. The bottom half is one group and the top is another. The best I could do was 2.75in at 100yds with a gusty crosswind to about 30. I sure hope it gets better when I start shooting symetrical (non-sliced) bullets!

Yeah it looks like the same problem, however it looks like yours might be a tad more extreme. I would take it in if I were you..

Nice scope, where did ya get it? :D

if you look.... on the right top of all the links, it says download our catalog
they are in Texas, so it might not be to much of a deal for you since you have to pay tax, shipping and transfer...
but to us out of state guys.... its great.... $10 flat shipping on anything no matter how much you order and no Tax
Anyhow ... I got my G22 for $315 out the door if memory serves me right :D

No I bought it at a local gun dealer. Nice guys but after seeing the CNN catalog on your link, I can't stop drooling for some reason.
There is so much stuff there I "don't need." My wife might find out what I feel like after she adds another $75 pair of shoes to her 100+ collection. Oh happy day!

PS-I might need to stay at someones house for a while.

Got mine back today. They were fast, less than 2 weeks. Here's their description of what they did:
Adjust magazine
Repair Feeding-G22
Replace ejector
Tested with CCi sTD Vel.
Hopefully I'll get a chance to test it out before the weeks over. I loaded and ejected a few rounds and they aren't damaged as bad as before. Still a small scrape, but I assume a little is to be expected. I'll get back with more details.

jams

I've had several jams with my walther, most of them i belive due to the fact it is a virgin weapon, all of my jams so far have been cured by simply manually cycling the weapon a few time to push the round fully home.

I found personally the CCI mini-mag ammo cycled better than the sub-sonic, but i do prefer sub sonic (high velocity seems damn loud going off that close to your ear!)

Got my G22 back from S&W, and after about 200rds it's doing the same thing. I am sending it back in tomorrow. If I get it back and after another 200rds the same problem occurs, what recourse do I have with Walther. If they fail to fix this twice I'll be pissed and want my money back.
Don't get me wrong, I love the gun, and I hope they fix it. But if it's still chewing up ammo it's no good to me.

I think a lot of the jamming problems have to do with fouling in the chamber. I'm not sure if it's the design of the receiver, or maybe the powder doesn't burn as completely with the standard velocity ammo, but the chamber, bolt, and assosciated areas seems to get filthy very quickly. This build up of gunk will cause ejection probems and slow the bolt return which could cause feeding problems. Also, if the chamber itself is dirty, the next bullet could get hung up on some of that dirt.

My "field tests" seem to confirm this, as everytime it goes out clean it shoots like a dream. A number of rounds later and the problems start to creep in. This leeds me to believe it is a cleanliness issue.

I suggest everyone clean their G22 VERY well, which can be a pain in the ass. I promised to post a full cleaning how-to w/ photos and diagrams, and I've been working on it, though I've had to travel for my job and won't be able to finish until some time in late June or July. Until then, there are other posts on here that'll get you started - keep it clean and it should work fine, or at least better than when dirty.
