    Use only remington golden bullet or CCI Mini Mag 22's.

    I tried using federal, but it sucks more cock than krott at a team glock match.

    tried remington tonight and shot 300 rounds without an issue.

    Pricing didnt seem that much different, I will probably make a decision and order one in a few months.
    still considering a couple other things too, but really like the G22


    FAKE CF FINISH ftw

    They are the main importer of walther guns in the US. The other importer is earl's repair service http://www.carlwalther.com/page2.htm but his prices are...creative. S&W as a result provides the warranty service on walther guns here with their usual excellent customer service.

    My buddies S&W is the same way. .22 auto-loaders can be really picky about thier ammo.
