At ISSC Austria they
recognized the demand for an all-around training gun. So they
developed a pistol that would expose the shooter to operational
features found on today's defensive handguns, while shielding the
shooter from the excessive costs of defensive ammunition. Ideally,
anyone who trains properly on an ISSC M22 should be able to
effectively move from hammer-fired to striker-fired pistols, as well
as place shots not just on target but within the X-ring circle.
In addition to its economical approach to handgun shooting and training, all ISSC M22 pistols are equipped with multiple safeties to insure that shooters will enjoy their shooting time to the maximum degree.
The safety devices on the M22 pistol are:
* Hammer drop-down which also blocks hammer from firing pin;
* Loaded chamber indicator at rear of block;
* External key-lock to lock trigger in a no-shoot position;
* Trigger safety tab
that keeps trigger from being pulled unless trigger finger is securely
around the entire
* Magazine disconnect which does
not allow gun to be fired unless a magazine is inserted into the grip.
All ISSC M22 pistols are finished
with our proprietary Ti-clad finish which is comprised of the same
chemical properties used by automobile manufacturers for exterior auto
paint. This finish guarantees not only a very strong and even
application, but protects your M22 pistol from all the elements that
might otherwise harm the finish, including water, cleaning residues,
gun powders and other toxic chemicals. Our two-tone models are
finished in a brilliant, titanium-white colour, one of the newest and
most advanced pigments on the market today.
The ISSC M22 semi-auto
pistol was designed by Wolfram Kriegleder, who previously designed the
P22 pistol for Walther. His experience with Walther and other
companies gave him the desire to create his own company that would
incorporate his innovative design ideas into new firearms.
ISSC is located in Ried, Austria, which is where the M22 pistol is manufactured prior to world-wide distribution. The company's design and engineering work is accomplished at the company's ESC subsidiary, located in Ulm, Germany. ESC, which stands for Engineering, Sourcing and Consulting, is a fresh approach to firearm manufacture, in that this company aggregates all new manufacturing technologies, applies them to small-arms manufacture and then brings these new technologies to other countries.
Do not use BreakFree Powder Blast
to clean M22 pistols. This cleaning agent reacts against the aluminum
in any gun slide and will discolour or flake off the finish
