I've been intrigued by this as well. From what I read here so far, after the usual break in they have been just as good as any other. The main differences between the two are the PLY has a slightly shorter barrel, and the frame (?) / grips structure is different. Don't know about compatibility issues, so I'll get some more coffee and sit back watch the tidal wave of info wash over the inner webs.Very interested in adding a pt22 ply to my family and would like some feedback on feel, reliability and magazine compatability w/ standard pt-22!
First, Welcome aboard and Greetings from Ft Worth, Tx. There are / have been a few threads about this already. I am interested in the 22 also, and have been researching. From what I've read, there is no significant difference between the two models. I believe they are identical mechanically, and just different grips and slightly shorter barrel on the PLY. Any 22lr gun, from any maker, can have 'issues', (like ammo sensitivity) but so far that I've seen nothing that can't be worked around. You can probably find all the answers you seek with the search functions. Good luck.I am very interested in a PLY22 (poly version of the pt22 in 22lr). I have read of reliability issues with the pt22. is the ply22 any more or less reliable than the pt22?
If anyone has expierence with both your opinions would be welcomed.
Thanks. I own a new PT-22 Polymer and want to get some extra mags as only one came with it. I cannot find anything online that indicates more than one mag being available, albeit there is a different mag for the pt-25.The difference in the mags is not hard to figure out. With any "improved" new model like the PLY-22 is, as much re-engineered as it is, the old mags for PT-22s wil not fit the PLY models or vice versa.
It's like the regular version first generation PT111 mags will not fit and function in a Millennium Pro model.
