The biggest improvement and probably the most important, Rugers slide does not have the tendency to crack in half! And there are other improvements, but that one I just stated is the biggest reason not to get a Walther P22.

What a load of ****. LMAO Walthers p22s do not have a problem. Tell me another fairy story. From what I have seen its only the ones with the compensator that may have a problem.

Fairy story 3 & 4. Half way down there is another pic.

You get the picture. Fairy story, I think not and those are all without the extension! That was just from the first 4 lines of images on google. I could post plenty more. I could post TONS more if I added the links with the extension model. Walther even knows about the problem. So like fairy story 5 states, I would not buy one, nor would I recommend one to anyone.
The thought of possible flying metal hitting me or anyone around me is good enough reason to stay away from a P22! I am not saying that it will happen to every single one. But there is enough proof out there that shows there is a serious potential for this kind of failure. So armed with this knowledge, why would anyone take that chance?

I looked up Ruger sr22 and it has its own issues. I also see that its not that common in the p22 and Walther is taking care of it if it happens. Most of these seem to have a lot of rounds and by a lot some over 100k. You could not find 100k 22s if you looked to buy. I have seen frames on glocks crack but that does not mean much. The pins on my two SR9s walk out every 50 rounds. My two mini 14s are not worth fire wood for how accurate they are. Ruger told me that it was due to them having worn out tooling. LOL does not help my POS well soemone elses POS I sold them. SR22 owners are instilling the same O ring to help bugger the take-down lever which is failing on them allowing the slide to jump ship.

The Walther P22 has some flaws in manufacturing that Walther repairs but don't happen all that often given the number of guns out there. But the P22 has some basic design flaws that make them unreliable.

Ruger has better and faster Customer service and the designs are solid. Frankly, the only guns I rarely find manufacturing issues with are SIGs.

I have had some issues with Rugers and they have had great CS. My walking pins on my SR9 I sold one, the other I sent back twice and they finally fixed it. Been working great. My every day carry.

Just a quick search and found a bunch of rugers with cracked frames and slides.

Frame rail cracked....with 13# spring from Wolff. - Page 2

Now you are just trying too hard! Those are all different Ruger firearms, one even had upgrades which could of been the cause. The 10/22 is one in MILLIONS! Also if you read the whole post they come to a conclusion that it is in the forging, not a crack.
