    I've got one. I like it. never had any issues, except that it has a tendency to not be terribly forceful when it extracts, so the spent casings tend to roll across my hand.

    Personally, I'd rank them Beretta Neos > Sig Mosquito > Walther P22
    But, I don't own a ruger or buckmark, which I'm certain everyone will say is better than all of the above.

    Some can be picky with ammo from what I have experienced.

    I would picked up a Ruger MKIII and love it, so far it has shot everything I have ran through it.

    I'm hoping to pick one up after the new year. The only reason would be to attach a can to it tho.

    I used to have one. It's a decent plinker with cci minimag or stingers... but geez is the grip ever small. Also, make sure you get the model without a compensator: that fucking thing unscrews itself so easily even during fire, and the front sight is fixed to it. You can't loctite that bitch either because then you wouldn't be able to disassemble...

    Unless you can't stand Rugers or Tanfoglio Force .22, get a 4" model...

    it would be easier if there were real gun stores around here, because it makes gun shopping hard having to go to pawnshops... but since there are not any, the pawnshop's inventory is usually 30% new.

    Can you attach anything but an XML on that tiny ass rail?

    that crosscut is waaaay below where it should be for a standard rail.

    I'd love to see a head to head comparison between this and the Sig Mosquito

    the Sig looks and feels better than the Walther, but I haven't heard shit about it. I was wanting to get one or the other for my wife (and to put a can on it also)

    Nope, xml is the only thing that will mount directly to it, I think I've seen an adaptor that extends it so you can use a regular light but I don't remember who made it.

    That's what I thought. I'd be a much bigger fan if the STD rail was really STD.

    Still, nice little plinker, I'm jealous of the can. Our CLEO says no.

    Buddy of mine has a p22, its feels tiny in my hands, and if you don't like the mags just right it jams constantly
