i've been wanting one of these little guys but wanted to wait until the ban expired hoping Walther would make higher capacity magazines for it. i checked the website and it has no info on it. anyone have the scoop? i'd really like one of those little buggers.

I doubt very much that Walther will make "hi-cap" .22LR magazines for the P-22 or any other weapon. No one else does. Rugers have a much longer grip and have always limited their mags to 10 rds. It isn't because of the AWB, but rather that the rimmed .22LR won't stack more than 10 high without having to curve the magazine, which would make it less than totally reliable.

IIRC, one or two manufacturers made some double-stack .22LR pistols, but they are no longer made. Probably because they weren't reliable.

I'm sorry Hgator, but there have been some who have made straight .22 mags that hold more - my fathers High Standard HD Military mags hold 12 each. And is very reliable, with standard velocity ammo.

Gotta watch them blanket statemets!

I doubt it. You might get a couiple more rounds in the same size mag, but anything else would certanly need an extension, and is that really worth it vs. possible sales volume, in Walther's view? Prob not.

Would some other after-market mag maker? Maybe. Get out a ruler, and figure out how long a 14-15 round mag might have to be, then decide if you think it's worth it. I don't really know. If I could get a 'few' more rounds in a reasonably short extended mag, I might buy a couple, just to PO Feinswien or Schumer.:evil:

You could always convert it to belt-fed operation... :neener:

I think Ramline (?) makes transparent 12rd mags for Buckmarks. Are they any good?
