    New Phoenix Arms HP22

    While at the gun show this weekend, I spied a little nickle plated 22 semi that was just plain cute! I picked it up and held it, it felt good and solid. Then I noticed the price. Could that be real? $115.00 + tax. I had to have it, and so I did. I didn't get a chance to go shoot it yet, but I will soon.

    I would like to have some feedback on this little gun if any of ya'll have one. I had people tell me good things about it at the gun show, but I'd rather believe what I hear on this forum from people that have one or have at least shot one.

    I bought one of these in nickle for my wife about 5 years ago. The little thing goes BANG everytime she pulled the trigger.

    The safties are a little tricky to work with but once you get use to them, their cool.

    If you can find it, there is a taget shooting kit that goes with it. It includes a longer barrel to stretch it to 5" and a extra mag with the extention for your pinkey. http://www.outdoorsuperstore.com/pro...CONVERSION+KIT

    For a little over $100, you can't really go wrong. I'm not sure you would want to consider it for CCW, but it is better than nothing.

    I think it's just fun to shoot. Enjoy.

    Good value lil' plinker! I got mine way back - in a case with the two barrels. It shoots well and in fact you can empty a mag, very quickly

    I did have the mag release bust on me - it was inadequately rivetted over - dealt with that myself. I also found after a while that accuracy was best with the long barrel and so that is how it stays these days. Time I played with mine again

    I must have gotten a lemon

    I picked mine up used.
    I would advise against using CCI stingers, because when I did part of the frame cracked, the part that holds in the cross pin. I had tried numerous brands of ammunition and a new magazine and hadn't ever gotten it to shoot 100%. I didn't want to put the money into fixing it, considering what I had paid.
    It was my first "real" handgun so I keep it in a display box now. I hope you have better luck with yours

    I'm looking for the conversion kit. I haven't had any luck yet. I did find spare mags with the extended finger plate.

    I have had much success every time I've taken mine to the range. Great little gun.

    Anyone have contact information for Phoenix Arms? I'd like to call them up and see if they have the conversion kits.

    We sell em at the shop, I recommend against them for the most part due to the number we get back for repairs right out of the box.

    Something like 50% come back with problems the day after the sale.

    Good to hear others are not finding theirs has issues, though I still can't recommend them in good conscious.

    I bought one a few months back .. works well. Here is my first suggestion though. DO NOT FULLY DISASSEMBLE! Repeat .. DO NOT FULLY DISASSEMBLE!!!!! There is one spring in it. Relatively small and unmanageable. If you take that spring out like it says, you will catch hell putting it back in. I managed to bend that spring up the first day I got it. Gun still works, but that spring gets stuck occasionally. I should order a new one, but I'm afraid I'd bend the damn thing again. Just blow some cleaner down the pipe and wipe it clean. Don't bother removing that spring.

    Mine was decent new, but after a month or so of shooting it the springs weakened and the safeties got loose. I found out they have practically no resale value; I traded it for a couple boxes of 9mm and .22 ammo.

    HP 22

    The only thing tricky about it is the multiple safeties. Magazine safety plus two manual safeties, and one must be on to remove the magazine. Not bad necessarily, just different than everything else. If you intend to use it as a CCW, better get some practice in. Reading the manual might help, too.

    here is a link for a conversion kit.

    http://www.outdoorsuperstore.com/bra...d=PHOENIX+ARMS

    not a bad price at all.

    I've had mine for a long time and I love it. But for a small pistol, it's pretty loud. I get a lot of looks when I pull it out and then touch one off. lol.
