    it takes a lot of time and effort in the uk to get the papers together, but i got my self a g22 walther, semi rifle today.

    put a decent scope with red reticule on it, loving it, only thing is, it seems to jam, at least once evry 50 rounds.

    is it cheap shitty ammo, or do i need to take my gun back?

    what ammo are you using? i use cci minimags in my 10/22 and i havn't had a problem.


    ...now that i think about it, in the 1500 rounds of assorted ammo i've put through it i've never had a problem :dunno:

    The older P22's were picky about ammo I'm not sure if its the same case with the G22, I'd try picking a couple different types of ammo and see if some work better then others.

    IIRC handguns are banned, not all guns. It's still really hard to get even a hunting rifle though, let alone something "scarier."

    today my p22 decided to be picky. I had like 20 failure to feeds today with in 200 rounds $1.07 Federal Champion.

    some times the slide wouldn't close all the way, sometimes it would close but wouldn't chamber the round. I even had a live bullet get pushed into the barrel.

    WOW, CONGRATS on getting that in the UK!! So who were your references? Local priest and such?

    Whereabouts are you in the UK anyway? I know some areas are more stubborn about it than others....

    Sorry, no help on the issues with the weapon though.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost you with all the legal stuff?

    whats really sad is that in any state in the US, an 18 year old can walk into a shop, and AT MOST, 10 days later walk out with the same rifle for way cheaper and with probably 5% the paperwork

    Congrats on the purchase :bigthumb:

    One out of 50 may just have been the ammo, try out some different ammo as suggested above. Let us know when you get it sorted out.
