It's a fixed barrel, straight blowback design similar to the Walther PPK or the P22. The slide is made of aircraft grade Aluminum, and the frame is made of Walther's proprietary mystery metal which is supposedly an Aluminum alloy.Congratulations! Buying another is the ultimate compliment, of course, but tell us more about it.
It's a blowback 22, right? What's the slide made of? Is it 100% 1911 functionality? Ammo preferences? Talk, talk!
I remember many, many years ago a friend and I would go out shooting 22 rifles. Mine held 9 rounds. His held something like 20. Needless to say, he had more fun while I was reloading.Why does more ammo = "more fun"? Guess I don't get it. I have as much fun with my revolvers....or cap and ball. What's the point of high cap .22s? To see how fast you can waste ammo?
I hope to have a "shoot off" soon with my .22 semi-autos... The Taurus TX22, the Colt 1911-22, the Ruger SR22, the Ruger MKIII 22/45 lite, and the KelTec PMR30 (.22wmr)That's a nice looking gun and I bet it is fun (and inexpensive) to shoot. I just don't understand why, in a full size 1911 frame, they don't hold more than 10 (or 12) rounds. Doesn't a TX22 hold 16? I'd think you could get 22 or so in a 1911. Now THAT would be fun!
