anybody have any experience with the new Walther SP22 pistols. Theya have avery strange new look and I was wondering if they were still plauged by the problems of the older Walther 22 model.
So how does that work? Is it a 3.4" slide and the 5" barrel sticks out the front?Jeff Johnson said:I have the 5" bbl as well as the 3.4" bbl ... easily interchangeable.
It's not actually ported. Why port a .22?GeneticsDave said:The 5 inch barrel has fake porting on it. Looks like this:
The 3.4 inch barrel is just like a normal barrel. The same slide is used regardless of the barrel you use. Pretty simple substitution.
In the 5" configuration, it certainly has a longer sight radius, since the front sight is on the barrel stabilizer. The front sight can be removed from the main slide when using that configuration.coprtoppe said:So no longer sight radius for the five inch then.
How do they differ in shooting? Any noticeable difference in accuracy?
The grip is larger..wild cat mccane said:I read (so probably crap) that the sp22 wasn't zinc...
I am also very interested in this model.
I also heard the grip is larger then the p22.
I want one for my gal. perhaps if the p22 does indeed have a smaller grip I will stick with looking at those...
