    I just purchased this gun today... brought it home and took it apart.. wow.. it took me a half hour to put it back together.. my question is...when its all put together and the slide is locked and you pull the trigger as far back as possible.. do you get a tiny little resistance.. like its rubbing ?? because on my cz po1 its smooth as a hot knife going through butter...im just worried i didnt put it back together 100%..

    when the slide is locked back youll feel it grind and then click. obviously its telling you that its not meant to be fired that way ha

    how far did you disassemble it?

    it'll get better. when I first got my P22 a few months ago, it took me forever to reassemble it. now I can do it in one smooth motion in just a few seconds. great gun, enjoy!

    I've taken to using a technique to reassemble by pushing the guide rod through the slide a 1/2 inch or so and grasping it with my other hand. Then, with the spring compressed, I slide the barrel into the slide until the guide rod is captured enough and will not pull back through the hole in the slide. The little plastic rod do-hicky has never worked for me.

    Other than the awkward reassembly, my P22 has been alot of fun. More accurate than I expected and so far it eats all my ammo.

    Keep the barrel tight.

    I agree, it's a great little gun. Did you get the 3.5" or the 5" with the stabilizer on the front? I recommend checking the barrel with the wrench when you have it apart next time. Mine would occasionally start to work it's way loose. Also make sure you hang on to that tiny set screw behind the front sight. I don't know how many times I've been crawling around on the floor looking for it. As far as reassembly goes, I haven't had any problems. I use that little plastic rod to help align the guide rod and spring. Good luck with it. It's a fun little gun. -Magnum

    Yeah the first time i took my p22 apart, I was forever getting that darn spring back on, I thought I had dropped a part cause my p99 keeps ths spring compressed on the rod, and this one I had to compress with one hand and try to get it back on, then everyone here confirmed its normal, just a pain inthe neck. Great gun for me, lots of fun plinking, i have the 3.5 inch. I havent noticed any grinding of slide or anything, make sure youre spring is on right.
