Aguila Super Maximum .22LR?

My Walther PP .22 functions reliably only with the hottest of .22 LR ammo. CCI Stingers and Velocitors are therefore its usual diet. However, they are virtually impossible to locate at present. My Internet search has turned up Aguila Super Max, which seems to be even hotter than the CCI offerings. Might anyone have used this round? If so, I would appreciate your evaluation. Thanks as always. --c

Aguila Super Maximum .22LR?

Corky,



As I have mentioned before, I own a PP .22LR and mine works just fine with most any 40 grain loading. One time I shot the remainder of a box of Winchester standard velocity Mark IV pistol match and it cycled okay.



Perhaps experimenting with a slightly lighter recoil spring would solve that problem. If you can get a replacement spring, you might try cutting off a coil at a time and see if that works. I have no idea where a .22 recoil spring that would fit the PP could be found, but I'll wager that someone on this forum knows.

Aguila Super Maximum .22LR?

Thanks for the suggestion, Roadster. At one time I had almost given up on this classy little pistol. Then I made the amazing discovery that reading the manual in the box was worth the effort! Walther recommends high velocity ammo for reliable function, but it should not require Stingers to cycle reliably.

Coincidentally, someone at the range yesterday commented on the heavy recoil spring. I'll search around for a lighter one. Perhaps Wolff offers something. --c

My Beretta Cheetah LUV's that stuff - works very well. But you should try Aquila's hottest offering in .22 - Interceptor. I'm sure your Walther will eat it up!

After about 25 rounds of Super Maximum, I called it quits. Every second or third round failed to eject. Back to CCI, if I can find some. --c
