Re: walther p22 5-inch with threading?
I bought mine 2nd hand but it seemed to all have come in one kit in a plastic case. Two barrels, several alternative height front sights, a little wrench for changing the barrel out, allen wrench or two, and a factory lazer sight that is really easy to put on or off from the accessory rail. Easy to zero that sight in too. It also comes with a knurled thread protector and an alternative bushing nut so there are no threads on the end if you want to use it that way.
I like having both barrels. The gun is really light and in a holster you barely know you are carrying it. With the shorter barrel I think it would fit in about any pocket and in any kind of coat you would wear in the woods I'd think you could hardly feel it. I barely notic it in mine.
I know it doesn't sound like much difference from one to the other but it just makes the gun feel different enough that with the long barrel it's more like carrying my Ruger MarkII and with the short barrel it's more like a compact pocket pistol. It's a lot lighter than the Ruger even with the long barrel.
The barrel difference is significant enough to affect the velocity of 22LR amunition and it will keep some of the cheaper amo that may be at the breaking point of being sub sonic down in the quiet zone for use more economicly with a suppressor. I think it's a cool option worth the money. I'm glad I got the "full meal deal" on mine. Not a target pistol but deffinately a strap it on and forget all day, got it when you need it, hiking, hunting, working in the yard or cutting wood, and just carry around all day just because you want to and you are a free gun owning American kind of gun.
Send all those Vegans back to Vega if they don't like it!
Who invited them to this planet any way?
