Bumble Bee, or Wasp Stinger You know looking at the spec's it says 22LR, if the stinger is just a more high powered version, it should load and fire. But I would bet if it is longer even by a bit, it would be a no go in those mags.JimL said:Will a PT22 chamber a stinger?
I know the Stingers are longer and I know why. I also know that I can use them in my Browning rifle, but only because I can pull up on the lever and force it in. By forcing it I get about 1/16 inch of rifling imprint in the base of the bullet.adam731432 said:Q: The 22 LR Stinger case is longer that a regular 22 LR. Why?
Then there's that. Stingers are definitely around 1/16 inch longer.Robby said:I would bet if it is longer even by a bit, it would be a no go in those mags.
So say internet articles. When I wrote that the Stinger is longer, OAL, than the LR, I was referring to the ones I have in my hand, which I measured with a micrometer.adam731432 said:The shell is longer to make up for the shorter bullet. The over all length of the bullet is the same though.
This looks like a lost cause. There are posts out there saying yes and saying no. Of course there is no guarantee that older PT22's are identical to later models. It looks like the only way to be sure is to buy one and try it out. I won't do that, because if they won't shoot Stingers I don't want one.NYPD in AZ said:According to this guy, no.
Mine shows .0030 inches.adam731432 said:I also measured the cci stinger,and bulk pack federal and remington golden bullet. It is very close,only a hair longer.
That's what I said.But if you notice the only part that touches the rifling is the base of the bullet
As soon as someone opens a gun shop with PT-22's in it I'll hop right on that.adam731432 said:Calm down buddy. Go to the local gunstore that doesn't have a commando working there with is own opinions he sees as fact,and ask if you or they can pop the barrel up and see if it chambers/drops in easily and has a short enough OAL to fit in the magazine.
OK, I just changed the title from "chamber."The guy with the tuarus pt22 just says they wont feed. He doesn't say they wont chamber. Maby it needed break in,was dirty, ect.

You know, I could almost swear I've seen that comment somewhere else just yesterday... Same thing. Used Aguila ... a split slide ... an irate Taurus...Gopher said:I bought mine in 1996 and it works well with them. I however did split the slide on it with just three rounds of that hot Aguila stuff. Taurus repaired it but sent a strongly worded letter saying not to shoot any hyper velocity ammo in it.
I had this same thought the first time I read this. I'd like for someone to tell me how a hot round splits a PT22 slide. Were does it split?Gopher said:I however did split the slide on it with just three rounds of that hot Aguila stuff.
