Out of the box I knew right away I liked the feel of the M22. The weight of the M22 was balanced and the stock grip and its divided finger sections fit my hand perfectly. The safety action and slide release I could without an issue toggle with my thumb. Same as well with the magazine release.
The M22 comes stock with a Weaver rail, a full rail vs. Glock which only has 1 notch in their rail and an adjustable rear sight for training purposes. Basically it’s a 22 cal Glock 17 (same size overall) training clone. I feel they did a really nice job with regards to the polymer frame and action as well as iron sights.
It has a single stack 10 round magazine and a large magazine well. The slide release, magazine release, & takedown lever are similar in style to the Glock. The biggest difference is that the M22 is a single action only pistol. The most obvious difference to a Glock is that it has a hammer & safety/decocker. Other safety features it has are a magazine safety which will not allow the chambered round to fire with clip removed, a drop safety (firing pin safety) which is only disengaged when the trigger is pulled. If, after a fall, the hammer was released, then the firing pin would not be activated, and an
integrated trigger lock.
What I really liked is that it has an adjustable rear site with Glock type U shape notch as well as a larger front sight but similar in style to the Glock 17.
After inspection was over it I took it to the range and tested it. The loading of the ten-shot magazine was easy. The magazine spring worked well and didn’t need to be beat in to load easily like other cheaper .22LR.
Those wide white sights allowed me to group nicely on the first few shots. Double & triple tapping was a breeze due to the M22 4 Lb trigger pull. The recoil was the same as all .22LR, nothing major. I shot another 12 magazines through it and each time grouping got tighter. One big observation, I did not have a single misfire or jam whatsoever. I was firing CCI Mini-Mags & Remington Thunderbolts.
Overall I was impressed with the Austrian engineering and attentiveness to detail in its design. The level of safety in all the components and the relatively low cost of 22LR ammo make this gun a great buy for economical target practice and training.
