There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it and it is definitiely related to how tight your grip is.
Just wondering if anyone has a solution for the brass smacking you in the forehead?
Check the Sticky Jack put up there regarding the history of correcting ejection direction. The extractor plays a huge part. Since Walther has not chosen to further enclose the rim on the breech face that is the only thing I've been able to come up with to correct the issue. VQ sells improved extractors and Walther finally revised theirs.
Now I did put up some really good threads with pictures explaining the internal function of fire control components and a thread with pictures on what to do about no DA, SA only.. Jack must have been sleeping on those. They are back a few pages somewhere. They explain exactly what each internal part does, how the P22 fire control components work, how the hammer is released in DA vs SA release. If you are solving issues....the first thing you need the know is how stuff works.
When I was down under....all that blood running to my head made me a little dizzy.....that and not allowing the womenz in the pup.
