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, gunpowders and other toxic chemicals. Our two-tone models are finished in a brilliant, titanium-white color, one of the newest and most advanced pigments on the market today.
NOTICE – Do not use BreakFree Powder Blast to clean M22 pistols. This cleaning agent reacts against the aluminum in any gun slide and will discolor or flake off the finish.
he ISSC M22 at first glance does mimic a Glock (as it was intended to be a Glock trainer). The frame is almost exactly identical to a Gen 3 Glock, with the magazine release, take down levers, and slide release all pretty much in the exact location as it would be on a Glock 19. If I gripped the pistol with my eyes closed, I would swear that I was holding a Glock until I actually start to feel the slide.
The ISSC M22 differs from a Glock mechanically with its action—all Glocks are striker fire pistols while the ISSC M22 is a single-action pistol. The M22 also have quite a few more safety features than a Glock. While it has the same trigger safety as a Glock, it also features a safety/decocker at the rear of the slide, and a trigger lock safety—which is actuated by the supplied key.
ISSC shipped us a version of the M22 that featured a longer, compensated barrel (most models I’ve seen before this have the shorter barrel). It also sports adjustable rear sights, and also comes with a screwdriver to adjust those rear sights. The front sight is adjustable by replacing it with taller or shorter front sight posts which are also supplied—and luckily so, from my experience with my second range visit.
Overall the ISSC M22 seems to be a constructed with great quality (except for a front sight problem that I’ll get into later). The polymer appears to be as strong as a Glock and the overall feel of the gun is rugged and doesn’t resemble its affordable price tag at all. This version of the ISSC M22’s MSRP is $399; however, I’ve seen the price anywhere between the high 200s to mid 300s.
