Thunderbolts are very very dirty. Plug the muzzle end. And fill the bore with your favorite solvent and stand the gun up on end and let it soak overnight. PS are you sure there isn't a squib in the bore?
Yeah I don't plan on buying Thunder Bolts again. I can get a cleaning rod through it with a 20 cal or smaller jag or brush. I think there could be some kind of small obstruction. I will try filling it with solvent though... It's worth a try... ThxThunderbolts are very very dirty. Plug the muzzle end.

That's probably what I will end up doing. I was just hoping to avoid the customer service run around and the months of waiting.There must be some kind of partly obstruction in your barrel. Discuss the matter with Walther. You were using standard, factory ammunition, so the issue should be Walther's.
If they feel it needs to go back to the mothership, they should send you a mailer

I'll definitely check it outSounds like a bad case of leading to me. Look into a lewis lead remover. Not sure if they make then for .22 or not . You may be able to buy just the screens(which are brass) and cut one to fit on your jag and bore and you keep pushing them through until you get all the lead out. When its bad the lead will plug up the screen and shavings will be pushed out the barrel.
Thanks for the reply... I'll plan on giving that a try!Copper "Chore Boy" aka "Chore Girl" scrubbing pads found in your supermarket. Cut one apart and wrap it around an undersized and worn out bore brush (trial & error here). You can use it as is or with Ed's Red, Kroil, WD-40 or the solvent of your choice on it. Works like a charm, is inexpensive and requires no special equipment.
