Walther P22 WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW By admin | May 26, 2023 | 42 Walther P22 WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW All the problems with the Walther P22 Posted in Walther
I noticed my extractor was suddenly loose after 1000 rounds. Upon closer inspection I noticed a hairline crack in the slide just above the extractor. The gun was purchased eight months ago. Now I’m looking for my proof of purchase…
Lol now Glock has a 22. Id love to get the Glock 22lr but California…
What 22 would you get instead?
Some instructors say don’t dry fire. I’d always heard that. But other instructors who teach trigger control say dry fire until you can pull trigger wo moving your hand. What say you all ?
Complaining about a paddle mag release which is just silly because some shooters, like myself, prefer it. As for the non captured recoil spring that can be replaced, the hammer and feed ramp can be polished and gen 2 mags can be purchased. All your problems go away. OR you can get a Gen 2 which addresses all that and you’re done.
I’ve pulled a couple off myself. Used a drop of glue myself. And put a drop of loctite in myself. And yes I absolutely hate the stupid spring.
3:48 it’s just like that because of California’s laws that’s why they designed that feature like that so I can comply with their stupid laws
So the morale of the story is MAINTAIN your firearms 🤦♂️ some people don’t do their due diligence with their firearms. It’s good to come here on YouTube and find video’s teaching people things like this.
Thank you for this video. I am picking up my p22 this afternoon, thx for that warning of the screw inside/under the slide… First thing I’m gonna do is unscrew it a little and put a drop of locktite.
A safety on a gun is “stupid”???
They do !!…. Glock makes the Glock 44 , itz a 22 LR calber but the slide is also polymer so under lots of firing , I question the quality of the plastic slide 😒
I hear the Glock 44 only likes to run with high end ammo. Which is what we’ve come to expect from a .22lr pistol but not from a Glock.
Is it ok to dry shoot the walther p22 CA? I jjst got my walther p22 and just curious ? I need some tips and watching this
Man 10 years is alot but yes needs better upgarde
Now have they changed any of these issues on any of the new models of this gun? I was going to buy one for my wife because walter usually makes really good guns and I think she would feel more comfortable having a safety aswell.
What do you mean why do guns have safety it’s a little kids can’t play with them so you don’t actually shoot somebody on accident
Thanks for watching, please like and subscribe.
Why you have a gun you dont like? Go get a makarov, and break the saftey off. While youre at it, stop dry firing rimfire guns, and remember: pants first, then shoes.
I have one with the old style frame and I love it but yeah I really wish there wasn’t the small issues that could be remedied at the factory easily.
I just blew off the tip of a threaded barrel yesterday. I was shooting CCI frangible copper rounds. They are very high velocity but really? Anyone else have that happen to them?
I have two 1st gen P-22s. Purchased them back in the early 2000s. Short barrel and long barrel. The long barrel is still new in the box. The short barrel p-22 I almost tossed it into the Charles River. Sent it back to S&W when the grooves on the slide showed signs of metal chewing and the safety too kept dropping during firing. S&W sent it back to me saying it was normal wear…Liars! Instead of tossing the gun I kept it and let it collect dust. Now I want to purchase a new complete slide. I wonder does the P-22 QD slide fit the 1st gen frames?
10 years wow. They have significant upgrades since.
So my front sight has a screw running into it up theu the slide, maybe yours feel out?
My slide cracked in three different places piece of junk,..I hope Walters warranties it !!!we’ll see.
My Walther P 22 has a longer barrel and the extended 2" slide at the barrel spins, any ideas? An Allen wrench will not tighten the extended slide.
Glock does make a .22 it’s the G44
Hi – You mentioned that you have had this for many yrs., I believe that all of those issues have been resolved with the new ones.
"Safety on a gun is stupid"
Said the guy who will soon shoot himself in the foot.
Ps don’t buy a used gun
I have 2 of these. My wife’s and mine. They are the new ones and no problems whatsoever. Call walther up and they are really good about helping you out. Send the gun to them and you won’t be disappointed.
This is the old P22, all these problems have been corrected with the P22Q.
& I would highly recommend the Ruger SR22 …..
Loctite is your’e friend also if you push the front sight down hard enough and make sure it’s flush the slide the sight post should flair out when pushed in holding the sight on … your gun is older than mine (2years old) i don’t have the issues (did they make a fix?)on these issues.
Your P22 is the 1st Gen, and Walther has solved all your issues with the 2nd Gen. Unfortunately, some the 2nd Gen is installed with 1st Gen parts like the 1st Gen guide rod and long recoil spring instead of of 2nd Gen capture recoil spring, 1st Gen magazine which caused feeding issue, 1st Gen hammer caused friction with slide push backwards or when blow-back etc…. I really don’t understand why Walther do that stupid installation with 1st Gen parts ! Remember, don’t use ammo less than 1000FPS, CCI Mini Mag is PERFECT ! !
However, its a lot of fun as you said when shooting with this P22 ….
I’m sorry, but after a few seconds, the whining about this pistol got pretty hard to listen to. Most everything you complain about is either based on lack of maintenance, simply personal preference or something that can be corrected for pennies.
Why it took 9 or 10 years to begin dealing with the bad things about this pistol tells me a lot … Cheers
having a problem with the loading?
It’s crap. We have one.
Walter needs to issue a recall for their p22 or at least issue a free fix for the failure to eject and failure to fire issues.
I too like shooting my p22. But I won’t buy another Walther. My firing pin broke. Maybe 5000 rounds in this gun. That’s just wrong. And I cannot get the parts I need. It’s a big problem finding and getting service for these guns.
What other 22 have you shot, which do you like best
well if you had the gun for 10 years and just now finding out about these problems maybe you need to take it apart put some Loctite on it is to put instead of putting the weapon on YouTube saying how bad it is fix your gun or send it back to a Walther to get fixed you’re the one that’s stupid
Is that the new p22
Mine the shells keep getting stuck in the chamber and a lot of miss fires.
