    We had one as a range rental, it held up pretty good. Broke a firing pin (with a high round count). It's not a sturdy part but is easy to replace and cheap. I like them, held up to rental use better than the Walther P22.

    I got it for about 240 bucks...plus tax......would I concider it for CC??...oh heck no.....a 22 does not have enough stopping power ...it's strictly a target weapon in my mind......or maybe even varmit weapon with proper sights.......
    I carry a Taurus PT145BP.....10 rounds plus one in the pipe......


    now any weapon can kill if employed.....but I'm thinking it's a good target plinker..

    $240 is a good price!!

    PT145 is a good carry but to bulky for me, but I do like the PT145.

    Ive never seen one of those in person but I have to say it really reminds me of a Beretta neos. I got to run a brick of ammo through one of those, I have to admit it was a great plinker just using iron sights.
    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit

    That's a pretty good price for a 22A... They seem to be good plinkers...A friend has had one for years and put 1000's of rounds through it without any troubles...

    22a

    Have owned and shot one for five years. Mine has a 7 inch barrel and is a great plinker. Easy takedown too (similar to a Hi-Standard).

    How do these run with the cheap bulk ammo?
    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    Took a few hundred rds to break-in, but now eats whatever I put in it.

    I did notice that the finish on the bolt face and breech seemed to get soft after a couple of mags, causing some FTE. Removed the finish and polished the surface and haven't had any more issues.
