Make sure to download the Walther P22 "Bible": .pdf link here

The P22 is a cute gun and very fun to shoot... provided you find ammo it actually runs well with. The one I owned was way too fussy so I sold it off.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
