Finally picked mines up today.



Cleaned the packing grease out, lubed with TW25B, grabbed 500rds of minimags, 200rds of Blazers and headed to Jackson Arms - one of the few ranges in my area that allows "rapid fire."

I started with minimags to break the pistol in. Had a few failures to fire in the beginning but the problems slowly worked itself out after about 150rds. In the end of 500rds of minimags I fired 100+ rounds with no failures. I then switched to blazers, it's amazing how noticeable dirtier this ammo is. It ran about 100 with 2 failures to fire and 1 stovepipe. Not too bad, definitely better than my buddy’s POS Mosquito.

Here's a 5rd group with CCI Blazer Round Nose. 6" Target, 15yds. The pistol is better than I am.


My only gripes:
* Slamming a magazine in to close the slide will not chamber a round.
* thumb safety gets in they way of the slide release

Here it is at home next to my Walther PPQ


If only Walther make a 22LR pistol to sell under their own name that is as good as the M&P22..
