Since I have purchased this weapon I have put around 500 rds through it, which by-the-way took quite some time. I had 3 to 4 jams per mag of different types.
Most common jam was the rounds did not load into the chamber, the rounds stopped by the ramp going into the chamber. Second was what I call stove pipe jams which is very dangerous.
Third when the weapon recoiled the slide would not return on counter-recoil. I still have not figured this one out. I was firing Federal ammo.
Fourth was rounds that did not extract.
I called Walther and spoke to a Tech. He told me I needed to fire many more rds of CCI mini mags. Needless to say I am not satisfied. Walther should have a recall on this weapon and fix the problems. It is really hard to believe this weapon passed QA.

Have owned this Pistol for over two years. This replaced my Ruger MkII which I had for over 10 years. Big mistake.
This little Walther is a delight to shoot, but extremely picky about its ammo and not as accurate as my MKII ! The Walther would feed only Federal Auto Match Grade Ammo, so beware.
I had numerous feed problems until a friend advise me about the ammo. Now it feeds and shoots great, but nothing like my old Ruger MK II , which was a tact driver with any ammo I loaded .
My wife & kids like to shoot the Walther , but I'm searching for another 22 Caliber Target Pistol to buy .

We found that this pistol that is comfortable, operationally smooth, very accurate, easily cleaned and maintained. My wife and I have never experienced a misfire or a jam. The reassembly after field stripping can be tricky until one masters the technique of keeping the spring aligned during the otherwise easy process.
Overall, we are very pleased with the Walther P22. It's a really fun gun to fire.

The first time I saw this I fell in love the star wars look. In the hand it feels as good as it looks. Ergonomically, this pistol is without a doubt a 5+ star. Shooting this pistol is delightful. Excellent accuracy.
That said, I'm very glad that I fired one before I purchased it. Two misfeeds out of 10 in the first magazine (on a weapon that had been broken in). Every magazine had a misfeed/ failure to fire.
I did some research and found a multitude of people who experienced the same issues. Most rated this the worst pistol they ever owned due to the misfires. One reviewer identified the problem with the misfeed is that the slide hangs up on the hammer when it is cycling.
The problem was resolved by removing 1/16 inch from the hammer and polishing the slide rails. Obviously not something most of us would want to attempt, and something that would cost a lot to have a certified gunsmith perform. Obviously this is a design defect, and quite honestly, one that would be easy for the manufacturer to correct.
If the reliability factor was resolved, this would be a 5+ without question and I would purchase it in a heartbeat. However, any weapon with this level of unreliability, is for all practical purposes worthless and potentially dangerous.
