Angry Hippo you can remove the mag disconnect or leave it in and remove the small spring that operates it. All it does is hold the trigger bar down and away from the hammer strut/sear until a mag is inserted and presses it up and away from the trigger bar. A lot of people have removed them.The most aggravating thing, to me, is that my pistol has a magazine disconnect as well as no decocker. I'm pretty sure the only way to decock the pistol is to insert a magazine and pull the trigger with the safety on (the hammer falls but the safety blocks the hammer from the firing pin). Never felt safe to me. I understand that this problem has been resolved on the more recent P22 Q model.
I echo what AdmiralAckbar said above. Mine is a 2013 model and has been fed thousands of rounds of nothing but CCI Mini Mag 0030 and CCI Velocitor 0047 both in 40 grain. From day 1 there has never been a failure of any sort.Had a P22(Q) for about a year. It has been happy with CCI Mini Mags and Velocitors. Aguila low speed has given me a lot of light strikes and failure to extract.
It's small, I think of that as a bonus. Cleaning is straightforward, nothing to complain about really.
Man o man.....I'v fired a few hundred thousand rounds through P22s but I can't find any that will punch holes in the steel. 55 yds is a long way. Good shooting. Now "trigger snob" if you really want to play around with your P22 remove the DA hammer strut. You will be left with a SA only pistol but the trigger will reset in about 3/16". Overtravel and pre-travel and you have a fun target pistol. Want to go a step further....add a relief cut to the sear and adjust the edge of the hammer hooks until you get to the trigger pull weight you want. I run 2.5 lbs.18” steel plate. 55 yards. Off hand standing on me hind two. CCI Minimag. 40 rounds fired with 38 hits. P22, 3.45” barrel. I slicked up the trigger to a crisp single action no creep 3.5 pounds pull weight. I did also add a trigger over travel stop. Trigger snob I am. View attachment 100902
