Walther QAP22003 P22 Standard 22 LLR 3.4" 10+1 Black Grip Bl
by Gerald W. L Date Added: Friday 11 January, 2013
This gun has been something of a disappointment. It won't shoot much of the ammo available unless you're willing to spend $$$ on the top line stuff. FTE's were constant with all of the bulk .22 ammo. Even more troubling is what I term a pretty bad trigger. It isn't smooth and doesn't break cleanly. The potentially worst problem is with the trigger bar. Since buying this pistol, I've done a lot of reading about its total disassembly and some modifications.

The ears on the trigger bar - and several other components - have burrs and look to be unfinished in spots. Some parts have "seams" like one would see on a diecast toy car. The trigger bar in mine was tearing up the slide. Every time the gun would cycle, the ears would strike the slide, leaving a dent in the slide. This can be a fatal flaw that ultimately destroys the slide after only a few hundred rounds. While mine wasn't terribly beat up to look at, I ended up taking the gun completely apart to fix the ears, the trigger, and deburr everything internal. Frankly, for a German gun, this one isn't worth the trouble in my opinion. If you don't have gunsmithing skills, this could be an expensive experiment.
