So... I bought a p22 off a friend yesterday. He said it was practically brand new and it looked like it was. He's had it for about a year, shot 50 rounds through it, cleaned it and put it away. FWIW, I believe the guy. I don't think he had any knowledge of what was about to happen. I've known him for quite a while and he's helped me out of a few jams and is an all around good guy. Anyway, I went to the range and was loving it, and then... WTF. Looks like the hammer spring? broke and now the hammer won't drop. This was after about 200 rounds.
