View Full Version : phoenix hp22a-hold open problem

03-02-2010, 4:28 PM
so -i just got my hp22 from Turners finally and took it to the range

had a couple of ftf and one fte

the main problem is that the weapon does not hold open after the last round so...

What is the cause for this problem and is there an easy solution?

Or... do I call Phoenix tomorrow and send it to them so they can fix it?

It is a fun gun to shoot...and I waited ten weeks to get it shipped and out of jail... it would suck to send it in after the first time I shoot it!

The HP-22 and HP-22A are not designed to hold open after the last round.

Looks like it's been answered but I'm also waiting on my HP22.

Thanks alot-I read the whole manual without mention of this...did I miss it?

This makes me feel better- I expect some malfuntions in a break in period and there is some filing to do to smooth out some rough machining BUT I reallllly like this gun-It feels great, its pretty accurate, and its very easy for youngsters and others(nonsexist) to shoot! I am going to get a mag and barrel kit but i can find one online that isn't on back order.....any leads?

Thanks again for the info...I would have had to wait for tomorrow to get that from Phoenix CS:)

Nice cheap gun! A little roughly made....

The 5" kit can come directly from Phoenix Arms $45 shipped, I think.
