You'll hear some folks saying that it mis-feeds, jams, etc. I have had two and the key to their reliability is to use ONLY steel lipped mags and good, fast ammo. I use CCI stingers or Mini-Mags in mine and very rarely have feed /jamming problems. It might happen once in every 300 rounds or so. I can live with that.. They are also more accurate then you might expect. Lastly it's a fun gun to have and frequently makes it to the range and gets a lot of attention because of it's looks and loudness.. It sounds like much more then .22LR... If the price is right, get it. If you don't, let me know where it is, I wouldn't mind having another..

P.S. they bumpfire very nicely.

Some inspiration... The space remaining on the left side of the case is where the suppressor will go...

Lots of engineers at various firearm companies spend a LOT of time trying to design guns that fire automatically, and here you go dumping on one for doing it out of it's own accord? At least the gun is taking some innitiative!

I'm part of that "crimminal-type group" being marketed to. White. Male. Conservative. Fringe political party. Prior military. Constitutionalist. Terror suspect. All around bad mutha@&%$#.




Tec 22's are neat. I wanna find one, one day, but it's not a priority right now.

My intratec tec 22

When I first got the pistol, I had problems with it. Steel feed lip magazines (Ruger BX 25), high velocity round nosed ammo (CCI mini mags) and keeping it clean help it out.

Here's a video of my son shooting it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6-IYanTYmI

No problems now. Still jams from time to time, but it's like once or twice every 500 or so round. 22 ammo is dirty after all.

Looks like this now:



Got mine for $300 at my local pawn shop and if you're ever looking parts I found this site: www.sksparts.com
Haven't used them yet though. Fun little pistol and I get a lot of looks and comments the way it is now.

i don't want to sound like a no it all, but have you check to see if your forward grip is legal?

i thought putting a forward grip on a pistol makes it an NFA AOW. before you can do this, you must file a BATF Form 1.

there are many members on this forum, who will know.

Agreed, from what I understand NFA paperwork is needed for this to be legal. Please read up on this and when in doubt, check with an attorney.
Stay safe!

I worked P/T for an armorred car service back in the early 90's... The range master/ firearms trainer had a Tec 9..He was a Balto. City Cop.... It was Full Auto (after some modification from him) go figure.....

When I qualified to get my permit he let me shoot it, and a few other toys he had in a locker in the range. What a blast! (no pun) It was the first time I had shot anything full auto. I emptied 2 magazines in some ridiculous time..

Not the Tec 22 but still cool to shoot!

Agreed. This is an AOW. Take the forward grip off ASAP and send the BATF $5 to make it legit.

I need to get educated. Had to look up all the abbriviations. I was unaware this was illegal without the proper paperwork. Removing it now. Thanks for the heads up. It would have been bad showing up at the firing range with it or worst explaining it to an officer. Still looks good without it.

The AOW stamp is five bucks. It's two hundred for the SBR stamp.

no problem. hang around, read, ask questions (doesn't matter if it is simple or not) and the knowledge will stay with you for a lifetime. be safe and shoot straight!
