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.

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:

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.
