I stumbled across one of these on consignment while killing some time.
Box and papers and in very good condition. $99.00
I did a search on it. Ala Dan, it had to be made very close to the same time as the one you lost a few years ago.
My serial # is AE 380XXX (I can't remember the exact number right now)
It seems that e-gunparts has most of the parts in stock.

On extra magazines: I have a Sterling .22 that I was given. It will not extract consistently. I've tried all kinds of rememedies to no avail.
So, I realize that the IJ and Sterling mags are close in size.
I was able to modify the base of the sterling mag to fit and function in my new to me IJ.:D :D

I fired six rounds before I bought it just to function check. I'll try to get to the range in a day or so.

I picked one up about a year ago. No ejection or feed problems with it; however, it's got a light hammer strike and is finicky as to which brands will fire consistently on every pull. I sure do like it though.

I just picked up another TP22 recently (serial number AE379XX) in an unsuccessful attempt to satisfy my addiction to small .22 LR pistols. I like these guns. In my experience, the TP22s are prone to light strikes when dirty, but keep them clean and they will run fine with quality, high-velocity ammo (mine prefers CCI Mini-Mags). As part of a preemptive effort to improve reliability, I polished some rough machining on the firing pin and hammer strut. So far so good.

Yours should provide years of fun plinking.

I had a walther (American) tph .22. It had a rough chamber and once it was polished it worked fine, but only with stingers.

The Iver Johnson TP-22 was a very nice weapon~! ;)

HOLY COW~!
The weapon, box, and doc's for $99~!

I would call that a bargain, as those extra magazines (brand new)
would probably cost close to that amount.

GRAB IT, WHILE YOU CAN~! Enjoy~!

By the way, the serial number on the firearm that was taken during my wifes violent carjacking was AE 23221; with Bessemer (AL) PD holding the stolen report.
