I own two of these pistols. Each is stainless and has a six inch barrel. I shot both in the past few days. I shoot cheap value pack ammo from Wal-Mart. I have been shooting Federal hollow point from 550 round boxes. I am just a plinker so I am not picky about ammo if it works. The last two times I was shooting with a suppressor and had some jams. I don't know whether they were caused by the can or by my failure to clean the pistol. I think the 2206 with six inch barrel is a great value. I tried shooting them with an optical scope but this didn't work for me. I removed the scopes and shoot with the iron sights. These are accurate pistols with very good triggers.

I had an extra large padded gun case for the 2206. I added a strap and found that the case worked very well as a shoulder holster for the pistol with suppressor attached.

I've owned the 422 and 622. I always thought they were very reliable, accurate, and fun guns. Mine always would work with any brand of ammo I had on hand too.

Very nice 2206!:D I was just checking out one on another forum that looked pretty sharp with Nill grips on it: link. (http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/non-xd-other-gun-discussion-area/84898-best-22lr-target-pistol-5.html#post1381482)

This pistol works well with a suppressor. You can buy an adaptor on Gunbroker.com and use it to replace the barrel shroud. The suppressor screws right on, no barrel threading required. That is what I did.
