F.I.E. E 22

Postby nwmousegunner » Wed Jun 14, 2017 8:54 pm

I am looking at a couple of these on Gun Broker and I am asking for information. I have never seen one . I am familiar with the F.I.E. Titan .25 and they seem to be nice enough for the price. What can you tell me about the E 22 as far as quality, accuracy, reliability. thanks Dave

Don't know too much, but I'll share what little I know.
I have looked at these from time to time on the auction sites, they go for decent money.
They're larger than the FIE/Excam Titans.

The FIE E22 and Excam GT22 are the same gun; my guess is there probably is a QFI version as well.
Apparently the were two variations in the slides - but I'm not sure if it is cosmetic or otherwise.

Sorry this doesn't answer your question about reliability or accuracy.
Hopefully someone will chime in with more info.

I've never touched one, but found some opinions from those who have. The first group are positive:

And then negatives. Some views here may be based on prejudice but one guy worked on one:

Thanks for your replies. I have not seen of this model locally. Gun Broker prices seem reasonable until you add shipping and a transfer fee. I was thinking of something I could use in my teaching and coaching in the 4 H shooting sports program that I wouldn't be concerned with the extra wear on a gun that would be difficult to repair.

In that case I'd go with a used Ruger Mk I or Mk II and buy a Right Tool https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... WO-cmbohaA
