I really thought I was getting a good training tool for my 92f that I use in USPSA Production division. 9mm is much more expensive than 22lr so I figured to have a weapon identical to my competition gun would be a great training tool. I was pleased with my purchase at first with a few disappointments until one day at the range the gun exploded in my face. Fortunately I was wearing safety glasses. No damage to the pistol was seen but the spent cases were clearly bulging and in some cases cracked.

This caused me to stop shooting the gun and return it to Chiappa for inspection, repair or even replacement. After sending it back two times (both at my expense) with no fix for the exploding / expanding cases. I decided to dump this pistol soon after making this video. So if you are looking to buy a Chiappa firearm. I would suggest you think twice.

From the Chiappa website:

M9-22 STANDARD – Wooden Grips
Item Number: SEE CHART
The M9 Semiautomatic is a 9x19mm Parabellum pistol that was adopted in 1985 as the official sidearm of the United States military after winning a competition in the 1980s, beating out many other contenders. The 92F survived exposure to temperatures from -40°F to 140°F, being soaked in salt water, being dropped repeatedly on concrete, and being buried in sand, mud and snow. Additionally, the 92F proved a MRBF (mean rounds before failure) of 35,000 rounds, the equivalent to five or six times the pistol’s service life. It officially entered service in 1990. The Chiappa M9-22 is a replica of the US Military sidearm chambered in .22 rimfire and is available in two versions, the Standard model featuring fixed front sight and windage adjustable rear sight, and the Tactical model with novak style fiber optic sights. The standard model is available with black plastic or wooden grips; the tactical model is supplied with black plastic grips.
