ISSC M22 M111000 22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We liked the full-size faux-Glock feel, and its training-gun concept. The M22 handled and shot like an ‘A’-rated gun when paired with CCI ammo, but it had multiple malfunctions with all other test ammunition. A slide-release issue and a uncomfortable ribbed trigger also cost it points.

The M22 internals are fairly standard, with the exception of a recoil spring, which surrounds the barrel of the gun, rather than using a guide rod. Disassembling the M22 was Glock-like. The two latching levers are depressed while tugging the slide slightly rearward, retracting the slide fully to the rear while lifting it upward, and then sliding it forward off the frame. The ISSC had problems with non-CCI ammunition, often failing to fully return to battery.
The ISSC’s ambidextrous decocking levers worked, but were a little awkward to operate.
Sights consisted of a white rectangle on the front, with an adjustable rear sight that was framed with a squared-off white line (shown). The sight picture was easy to access and was judged the best out of our trio of contestants.
