Well I picked up my PP .22LR today .......
It is  "ID' dated with the "Eagle over N" and has the ULM staghorn on the frame
Has "Eagle over N" on the slide ..... no Interarms import .....
matching serial #...

Came with matching serial # box, testtarget, instruction and one fingerrest mag...... I already have 4 extrag Walther factory mags in .22LR without the fingerrest .......

Now since it is a ID dated gun I was first confused how it was that it did not have Interarm markings...... till I got the PP and took closer looks.... the inside of the box has a sticker for the Canadian Importer.... and once I removed the mag ... the inside of the magwell had the american importers marks engraved (at least that is my assumptions)....... I love it..... you cant see them unless the mag is out and you look ever so close......
The only thing that kinda confuses me is that it does not have marks on the barrel at all......
other than that.... $450 out the door of my gunstore @ 80% finish,,,, not a bad deal I think....since it comes with all the goodies I wanted.......

Now it will go, sooner or later, to Ford's or Tripp for refinish to be a good looking PP..... and eventually I will get a extra barrel to Gemtech to get it threaded ......
pics sooner or later will be posted on Glocktalk-Waltherforum

*Edit
pics.... once more still not hosting myself.. sorry for the redirecting

anyhow...... does anybody know if in the timfreame "ID" they marked the barrels with "eagle over N" and the yearstamp that I have seen on some Interarms imports....
Not sure if Walther made a difference with Interarms and PP's that got exported to other countries.....
I am just curious due to the frame and slide having the "eagle over N"  and the frame got the staghorn and date code?

Allrighty..... so my barrel has the "eagle over N).... you can only see it when the slide is back and you look at the bottom of the barrel...... so I guess all is the way it came from factory.....

OMG I just got back from the range..... such a sweet thing that PP... The guy at the range ask me why I got such a grin on my face... I opened my box showed him the sweet lady....
I am one happy camper.. it was worth the money spent ...

Oh yeah, well I just got through shooting my P22.
A whole bricks worth of .22's...

Some how, I don't think it's quit the same.


It would be fun to shoot them both back to back...

How well can you double tap with yours?

How was your reliability?

Someday I'd like to get a book on Walther's. I really do like their guns!

I have to say... quality on the PP is much better....
I handled a P22 today at the range ... and it starts out withe the mags...... The PP still has mags that are sturdy and feed well..... it weights a lot more than the P22 but hi it's not hard to figure that out
I was shooting Remington Value pack..... which I had left over from my G22 that will not eat them suckers.....
sure enough the PP just ate them with pleasure.....
I didn't have any issues at all....except that every so often it would not pull the last round of the mag.....
I took a look and my magfollower and it has some (big)scratches. SO I belive  that this was the couse for the last round not being pulled out of the mag... but I have 4 mags in storage that need a good cleaning before they are being used. I just didn't want to do that.. so I reloaded one mag 30 or so times...
*edit
too sweet to be true... yes it is....
one thing that I didn't like at all.... the initial DA pull on the trigger to move the hammer back is just out of control... It's hard, I mean way to hard... so I only shot it in SA mode....
Since it will be a blinker I might get that Bullseye kit that I have seen for the PP .... 3 replacement springs and see what that will do

I remember asking Carl Walther why they stopped producing the PP, and if they considered the newer pistols to be of better quality.

The only answer I got to those two questions was, that for the new pistols, I should consult the catalogue. I found this answer was telling a lot.

Way to hard? Der Walther braucht ein bisschen Muskuln, mein Sohn. Have some spinach! I'm serious, take some exercise. When you give a man a hand, make sure he regrets it.

Yeah uncut! You pussy!
 LMAO


That is where the P22 has got you, on the DA trigger. It is pretty darn smooth and easy... My old PPK/S had a tremendously hard DA trigger pull...

Yea I know the P22 has a lighter pull.....
I still got a P22 on my wishlist.... matter of fact my gunstore is going to call RSR monday to find out if they can get a short barreled one for me (blau-garau frame)
I want that "grey" frame to match my G22 and also I want the short abrreled one to attach a suppressor down the road....
and with a preiedifference of $60 or so I don't need the 2 barrel set....

Agreed. I have the two barrel set. The "Limited" edition... I prefer the shorter barrel. It's easier to clean and shoots VERY well for me... If I knew then what I know now, I'd of only purchased the shorter version... Got a nice case with it though!
