I have just started buying Walthers(P99 9mm) and I am now going for the second. I was thinking of the P22 for inexpensive fun shooting/training. Anyone who has one please tell me your opinions.
Thanks,
Albert

Albert,
I had one for a short while and took it back.I wasn't happy.Horrible double action pull,kept misfeeding and accuracy was soso.Since then I've been told that it takes about 300 rounds to break in so maybe I was too hasty.

Good little gun

Accuracy is good.
The handle is very small, if you've got big hands, forget it.
The Da trigger is hard and the SA is ok, but you can fix the SA quite easily.

Some misfires at the beginning, but it straigtens up after a couple hundreds.

Yes, my P22 was DREADFUL for the first 100 or so rounds, but it straightened up nicely. It does take a fair amount of concentration to shoot it accurately because of the wide gap in the rear sight. There's a lot of space when you center the front site between the rear


I love it now, and my 9 year old daughter likes it too.

Regards,
James

How much smaller is the frame? I am 6'1" 225. Most Glocks,1911's,Beretta's, Sig's fith nicely as does the P99. Can you give a comparison as to size?
Thanks

It's about the same dimension as my Glock 26, with the exception of width. The P22 is skinnier.

I've had two P22's. I sold the first 5" model to a friend because I wanted to buy a "first edition" model that came with both 3" and 5" barrels. Both have work very well. Accuracy isn't great, but the main reason I bought the P22 was to supliment my training on the P99, which is much more valuable to me at this time. If I wanted accuracy, I'd buy one of Walther's Olympic style guns.

I like the longer version and plan to pick up the smaller barell to try it out.

Very pleased with the accuracy so far...use it for steel shoots and its a tack driver....

The P22 is 75% scale of the P99. It comes with one extra grip sizer (the P99 comes with two) and the larger one helps for larger hands. But for XL hands, I dunno.

I wear glove size, large. It is comfortable (with the larger grip sizer) and considering the low recoil the grip length is okay but some will probably not care for it. Aside from the dimensions of the grip, the ergonomic shape is pleasant enough. There are certainly 22 autos which will have a more hand-filling feel.

I love mine. I finally got it good and broken in, and it shoots great. The picture below is of a target that I shot at 15 yards, 100 rounds, offhand.
