I've shot a couple. Nice little guns, but quite pricey. If it were my money, I'd probably go with a Ruger Mark III or 22/45 over the Walther. Both would be much better suited to the role's a .22 rimfire handgun should fulfill (plinking, target shooting, and small game hunting).

[rquote=1507758&tid=105148&author=macon county boy]do they jam? can u put stingers through them?[/rquote]

I looked at em, but decided not to buy, as I heard they can be quite finicky with what they will shoot well, and can be prone to jam...... I think, there are some guys on here who do own em though... I think Rat looked at em too....:thinking:

Well, they are certainly small, light on recoil, and easy to handle. That said, I'd still take a good hard look at the Ruger and don't discount the Smith & Wesson 22A. You can find them brand new with a lifetime warranty for around $200 +/-. We've got two of them we use in our NRA Basic Pistol classes and they are great shooting guns. They have a longer sight radius than the Walther and are generally easier for beginners to shoot accurately.

Dude jump on it. They are awesome guns. They run great with stingers and federal bulk. I've had maybe 5 failures to fire after 2-3 thousand rounds.

Good deal I gave $200 for mine .. you'll like it.

Mine does not work well with "target" 22 shells but never jams with higher Velosity shells

Yea, I looked atem but got disinterested.
Nothing but good things I've heard about the walther but I was leaning towards the S&W 22A that choff mentions above after some research and for accuracy reasons.

I did buy a walther afterall though... not the p22.
