When I went to the approved FFL dealer to finally pick up the gun there were no front sites included in the box. I emailed ISSC on friday morning (4-1-11) and recieved them on 4-6-11, while I appreciate the promptness of ISSC in sending the sites; the FFL dealer that I picked the gun up from put in a Glock front site for temporary use that I like better than the ISSC sites provided. After 100 rounds of CCI Mini-Mag 40gr 1 FTE. After 200 rounds of Remington Thunderbolt 40gr 2 FTE and 1 FTF. The gun is great and is perfect for what I was looking for, cheap and reliable. My rating is based solely on my opinion of the gun

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.

Thanks, BUDs, for another great deal. The ISSC M22 is simply a pleasure to shoot! Yes, CCI Mini Mag 40gr. RN are what it loves to eat. Didn't reliably feed/fire/extract the Win Super X "Super Speed" (1300 fps) RN, but now I know. Haven't even tried bulk pack yet and probably won't. Overall, a very accurate pistol with a very good trigger, good balance, easy to take down, etc. One caveat: I had to super glue the front sight upon arrival. What's up with that, ISSC? Why tarnish your reputation over sub-standard sights? I'd buy this gun again and recommend it to others. It isn't my Ruger 22/45, but is awesome for those of you who love Glocks and want something similar to practice with. It really helps fight the flinch that so many people develop with larger caliber handguns, especially if you alternate them while practicing. Clean WELL before shooting the first time, as this seems to thwart a lot of common problems with new guns. Wish it would eat other ammo brands, but w/CCI at about 6 cents a round I can't complain. Inexpensive fun!

There are always two separate things to discuss when purchasing anything from anyone. One, is the customeer service from the firm, and second is the item you purchased. Of all the purchases I've ever made on the Internet, this had to be the easiest, the most painless, and drama free transaction ever. I'm really impressed with these guys. I will buy all of my guns from them from now on. The gun was well researched before I decided to purchase it, but I was still surprised by some recent developments. My Father bought one a month or two ago. His came with a sighting target and additional front sights. Aslo, his had a trigger guard that looked exactly like a Glock. The version I received today had a rounded trigger guard, no target, and no addtional front sights. ISSC's website does not reflect any of these changes. To make matters worse, the one front sight I did have, had broken off my gun laying in the shipping bag. I called ISSC and they immediately made arrangements to ship a complete a set of front sights out to me. Let's hope the gun shoots well. If I knew what had changed with the product, I wouldn't have been slightly annoyed with ISSC.

Shipping was as expected, ordered on a weekend and at my FFL on Thursday. Have put 500 to 600 rounds on this gun. Went to the range today and the gun finally felt broken-in. Have settled on CCI and Aguila Hi-Velocity ammunition with minimum velocity of 1260 fps. These types of ammunition cycle in this firearm and I had no problem with FTF or FTE. (Did have some strike failures, but that's more the ammo.) Ammo that does not work well includes American Eagle, Federal, and Winchester 333. (Insufficient power to cycle.) Winchester Dynapoint GT's did work somewhat e range today but there were FTE's ( consider it a form of tactical emergency practice.) All in all, the gun has broken in and I am pleased. I just wish there was the spare magazine and spring that came with earlier offerings. BTW, my serial number begins with AAC, for those following this gun and any reviews/reported issues. That said, MUCH MUCH CHEAPER than the Walther P22!

I got mine about a month and a half ago. First, Buds service: it is superb!!! I ordered the gun on a Friday night and it was at my FFL on Wednesday!!! Very easy to do business with Buds. Second, the gun: it is VERY picky on ammo. Make sure you only buy CCI Mini Mags 40 grain round nose (part # 0030, between $7 and $8 for 100). I tried about five different brand of ammo and had so many headaches; fail to feed and eject are very common with all the ammo expect CCI's. Even with those, you will experience a few FTE problems. It is a nice gun, but honestly, I think a Ruger Mark III would have been a better choice for a .22LR. The M22 is very accurate, the magazine is easy to load and eject, the safety features are good, and the trigger is very smooth. All and all, not bad. The main complaint is the ammo. I am giving the gun a three because of all the multiple ammo problems. By the way, Buds service is a five!
