    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! :D

    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.
  2. Hope its a good gun for ya :D You sound like you like it pretty good. Im sure after you get to put 500 through it you will really get to know it better.

    Well, yesterday turned out busier than I had planned, and only got 300 rounds in.
    I had no failures of any kind with the 50 CCI’s (no surprise), I then switched to the Remington Yellow Jackets. I had fully expected multiple feed failures, but all 30 fed great. However, I had 3 of the 30 that absolutely refused to fire. I then tried 10 rounds of Federal Champion. 6 of the 10 did not cycle the slide.
    Went back to the good ‘ol Federal 550 bulk pack, and of the 260 rounds I fired, I had 6 failures. 3 would not fire, 1 stovepipe, and 2 fired & ejected, but the slide did not move back far enough to pick up a fresh round. Still, for a cheap plinking / practice round,
    97.5% success rate is acceptable to me.

    But still, on the next outing I will be trying a box of CCI's BLAZER ammo. From what I have read, it is as reliable in semi auto pistols as the Mini-Mags, but priced almost the same as the Federal 550rd. Bulkpack.
