California shooters have a new choice in rimfire pistols with the introduction of the Walther P22 FDE.

The Walther P22 FDE is a DA/SA semi-auto pistol with excellent features in an affordable handgun. In addition to an ergonomic grip, the P22 comes with two backstraps and an ambidextrous magazine release. This allows both right- and left-hand shooters comfortable handling when firing.

The P22 FDE also comes with slide serrations and three-dot sights, which allow getting on target quickly. The sights are low-profile to limit snagging, and the rear sights are adjustable for windage.

The gun also features an accessory rail for adding lights or lasers, and a chamber indicator for fast status inspection. The manual safety blocks the firing pin, while the double-action trigger goes to single-action after the first shot. The non-slip grip surface provides good purchase, regardless of hand size.

The Walther styling on the P22 FDE is sleek and comfortable, with a tactical look. At the same time, the .22 LR chambering allows affordable plinking and training in a pistol that feels like a self-defense handgun.

Walther providers personal protection and recreational firearms of various calibers, ranging from .22 to .45. With a vast devotion for continued innovation and customer focus in a fast-growing industry, Walther Arms engineers products that are Built for Life.
