HP22 .22LR NICKEL BLACK GRIP
[HP22ANB]
$129.00
by Ben S Date Added: Thursday 06 March, 2014
I probably don't review like most other people. When I pay $135 for a gun, I rate it like a $135 gun. For $135, this performs rather well.

It had 1 problem that I don't really consider major, seeing as how I was able to fix it myself- and I am NO gun smith. On the back of the slide, where the hammer makes contact, there is a black plate. On mine, the black plate sat a little too low and as a consequence the slide would jam backwards every once in a while as the plate lip would catch on the hammer. I slowly ground down a very shallow notch in the middle of the plate protrusion (for the hammer) with a rounded file and the problem was fixed in no time.

I was actually fairly worried when taking my first several shots with the gun. I had several FTE's (even after fixing the slide). I had just grabbed a handful of rounds out of an open box of .22's in front of me. Found out later that this gun, mine at least, hates Winchester SuperX cases. When using CCI, Blazer, Remington it works perfectly.

It's a bit of a pain to learn to take the slide off and get it back on (spring is a hassle and WILL shoot off at nearly the speed of a .22), but it's a $135 gun! Some people would complain about some of the inconveniences like that- I applaud them for being able to make a $135 gun!

Did I mention it only costs $135?!
