Walther P22 .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We eventually found the non-functional muzzle brake to be a detriment because of the fussy dismounting needed to field-strip the pistol. The false muzzle brake only added weight, which didnít help the gun or its accuracy over the shorter version.

Hereís the P22 taken down. The two metric Allen wrenches are needed to get the brake off. Vibrations from shooting caused the brake to become loose. Walther provided a note in the package to watch for looseness. We didnít like the brake, its effect on the barrel looseness, nor the extra effort to dismantle the gun, all of which gave zero advantages to this version, in our opinion.
The arrow points to the smaller Allen screw which helps hold the false brake in place. Note the capped hole in the slide just behind the brake. Walther offers a suppressor for this pistol, for those who qualify.
