Well, after MANY hours of review reading on the PUMA 1911-22, the Ruger 2245, the S&W 22a, the Browning buck mark, the Taurus PT22, the Beretta 21, and the Phoenix HP22, I had narrowed it down to the 3 that I made a poll on. So I went to our new local gun shop last night to go get the Ruger & to look at the PUMA just for the heck of it, and low & behold in the gun case was a new Austrian Arms ISSC M22 (Glock clone) with the 5.5" ported barell. It was $59.00 over my max budjet, but the second I picked it up I was immediately in love. (Being a Glock fan, that came natural) So, budjet be danged, it came home with me! Only got to put 50 rds of CCI Stingers through it. Probabaly was not a good idea, but I shot it before I even cleaned out the initial factory gunk it was packed in. ( Since then it has been cleaned VERY well & lubed with Remoil w. Teflon additive) I had 1 falure to fire, and it was no fault of the gun, as the rim had a very good fire pin impression in it. Still odd though. I think that out of the last 500 rounds of CCI I have fired, this is the FIRST CCI that has failed to fire from a solid pin hit. Oh well, goes to show that no ammo made, reguardless of brand, is exactly 100% reliable. 99.999998% maybe! lol. I plan to put over 800 rounds through it this weekend. That is, if my fingers can survive! :wink1: Will post a follow up.
