A little FYI on the SR22. If you use cheap ammo, it will hang up alot. Be sure and use quality ammo.

there is a video floating around where a guy has one and it hangs up over 200 times in just a short period of time. I had that trouble, but started using CCI's and it cured the problem.

That guy's video is about the only one I saw that indicated a real ammo sensitivity but it sounds like you had the same situation.

Most of what I read indicated it was pretty accepting relative to the P22 and the Mosquito; about even with the Bersa Thunder.

Had planned to not even bother with anything but CCI anyway.

It's not just 22 ammo, it's any ammo
