    260-280 is about right depending on the finish and the barrel options.

    IS this a good pistol? I've seen them a few times I thinkt he 87mm version and it was really small. Seemed like a cool gun to target shoot every once and a while. You guys that have one have any pics?

    Have you handled one yet? If you have even medium sized hands the P22 might not be the gun for you, it's pretty tiny. Quality seems to be hit or miss, if you get a good one you are in business, if not, run. The gun seems to like hot .22 loads to cycle correctly.

    It is tiny. I was going to buy one until I held it and could palm it. I went with a Ruger instead.

    it is a small gun... i have some pretty big hands and it fits fine with the longer finger rest, without it can be uncomfortable though... overall i would definately buy it again if needbe... heres my list of ammos ive used and any problems i've had

    Remington Target ammo: works fine... fairly clean ammo... no major problems, i think i had around 3 failures to fire...

    Winchester white box: had some issues with this ammo... it would get stuck trying to go into the barrel.

    Federal 22lr HP: this ammo sucked for mine, it got stuck alot going into the barrel and ejecting

    CCI Shotshells: these were fun to try however not once did they eject right...

    I tried a few more but i cant remember which ive actually tried lol... i did a little torture test on it and shot 2500rnds of the remington target ammo over 3-4 different trips to the range without cleaning and it started having problems recycling after around 2000rnds overall id say this gun is definately a good range gun

    If you have a small or medium sized hand, it'll be fine. For me, I had to settle for a Smith and Wesson 22-S. The P22 was just too damn small for my huge hands.

    Shotshells don't cycle the action on any gun I've shot them out of. I've got a 22/45 and a friend has a p22 and we always have to cycle by hand.

    I personally don't like the P22. It seems too small for me and more like a toy.

    This isn't a pic of a P22 in somebody's hand, but here's a pic I made that might give you an idea of the size...

    it is much thinner than the 23... go to a pawn shop/gun shop and hold one... if it feels alright then go ahead and buy it... if it doesnt feel bad in your hand you'll love it

    It's a lot smaller than a G23/G19, but I would disagree that it's "too small". I have pretty large mitts and while it is tiny in my hand, you don't need that firm of a grip on a .22LR.
