Hello!
I am another P22 owner and I am quite happy with the gun's performance. However I have started to experience some problems. After the last round is fired, the slide would not stay locked open, as it should! What could be causing this? Is this a condition that will cease to occur after I "break-in" the gun? Will the new chrome magazines help solve this problem?
Help!

First thing I would do is to teardown and clean the magazines…
Did you get the P22 new? Have you ever cleaned the mags? The reason I ask is that a lot of people think because they are new, they won’t need to be cleaned for a while. That’s far from the case. The new mags have a heavy grease on them and will foul up rather quickly. Since it’s the mags function to lock open the slide after the last shot, I have to suspect a fouled mag, considering it just started to happen…

Hope this helps, because it’s an easy fix…
