    If you are able to purchase a S&W M&P .22 Compact in that lovely state I would check that pistol out. Both my and my buddies M&P's work flawlessly, his with a supressor much of the time. Many a trapped Texas feral hog has bit the dust to these pistols, one pop in the brain and you have sausage ingrediant number one. The Smith seems to feed about anything I capture and stuff in the mags including some old Wards, Sears and Western Auto ammo I found in my stash.

    Any reason you are skipping over the usual suspects in the 22lr world? the ruger mk-whatever and buckmarks? or even the s&w liberty? Unless you want a kinda crappy single/double action trigger over a nice single action for some reason.

    I agree! The Ruger Mark II I can attest to as well as the Buckmarks. The Ruger Mark II eats anything and spits out tiny groups FME.

    Here is at least one positive, recent report about Walther customer service:
    https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/thumbs-up-to-walther-service.818078/

    For years they were handled by S&W as apparently a red-headed stepchild, but I think that is no longer the situation.

    I didn't mean it as Walther customer service stinks.

    I just meant that it's inconvenient to send a gun back..... no matter who the mfg is.

    Not really, IMHO good customer service is defined by sending you a pre-paid shipping label and turning around the repair in a reasonable time (~2 weeks or less). If you have to pay to ship it back as an individual you are looking at ~$60 for any "warranty" work. Kahr & EAA can you feel me?

    I get what you're saying, but, imo, having my truck fixed for free under warranty in a cpl hrs is stI'll an inconvenience.

    Granted, it's still better than the alternatives
