    Well, I went to the range today and tested out the new P22 set-up.

    CLICK FOR GUN IN QUESTION

    Anyhow, I used Quickshock, Elly Scorpians, Remington Target, Federal 550 bulk, and Winchester 550 Bulk and all worked like a charm.

    This is quite odd because before I modified my gun, I could never even use a mag with 10 rounds full, it was always 8 or so and even then, I would usually have 3-5 malfunctions. But no today; no-sir-ee! It worked like a charm with everything I put through it.

    And, to make things better, I was drawing 2" red circles on plain paper and actually cutting out the center at 7 yards with my Walther scope. At 15 yards, I was a bit high, but no big deal, the groups were still decent for what I figure is a 5-7 MOA dot.

    So, there you have it. I guess leaving the hammer cocked for about two weeks eased up that super tight hammer spring; also, I took 1.5 coils off the recoil rod to slow 'er up just a hair.

    All in all, I am finally satisfied with my P22!

    :bigthumb: What did that setup cost you if you don't mind me asking? I don't remember if you said in your original thread. I'm thinking about picking up a P22 right after Christmas just for general plinking and shooting at the range.

    Umm, let's see...

    Frame -- $30
    Barrel -- $78
    Scope -- $80
    Mount -- $49

    And then of course the cost for the pistol whatever that was.
