The Walther G22 .22 Caliber "Bullpup"
Lookin' for that one last Christmas present for the gun nut on your list? Well, here you go. The Walther G22 "Bullpup" .22 caliber rifle.
As is typical with bullpup designs, the action is moved well back into the stock, greatly shortening the overall length, without compromising barrel length. Yep, that rectangular hole on the side is where the empties come out!
This could be a problem for a left-handed shooter, as hot brass being poked into your ear does tend to be a bit distracting, to say the least. Fortunately, Walther took that into consideration, and the G22 is also available in a left handed version.
Some of the other interesting features include an adjustable length stock, black or camo color scheme, Weaver style mount for optics, and a ten shot removeable magazine.
I wonder how long it will take for someone to come up with a twenty or thirty shot magazine for the G22?
At somewhere around $400. the G22 is certainly not the least expensive .22 out there, but Walther has been known to build some quality stuff, and I expect this is no exception.
It sure would be nice if the'd send me one to test, Yep, it sure would, I'd be glad to test it for them, really, I wouldn't mind a bit, no problem, I've got plenty of ammo.........
