When I first got my G22 I noticed some flexing of the trigger bar when the trigger is pulled.
My thought was that this flexing caused the spongy feel.
The spongy trigger is the most common complaint of the Walther G22 Bullpup.

I have seen a wide range of fixes on the innerwebz for this issue.
One guy created a new trigger bar out of thicker metal & welded the
original ends to both sides of the new trigger bar.
another involved a wad of cardboard stuffed between the original trigger bar and the barrel.

So being a clever fellow I decided to come up with my own solution to fix the spongy trigger.
The Most Ultimate Walther G22 trigger Job Ever.

I needed a way to stiffen the stock trigger bar and thought I saw a new way to do it.
I took a length of stiff wire (not coat hanger wire. Stiffer than that) and bent it to conform to the bend In the factory trigger bar.
The length is shorter so it does not interfere with the connection at eather end.
Next I got ultra fine green craft wire and close wrapped the trigger bar and the stiffener together.
With the stiffener on top. (between the trigger bar and the barrel). it needs to be on top because the bend in the trigger bar closely follows the interior of the stock and there is not room for the stiffener below the trigger bar.

The craft wire wrapping is continuous and tight so that no metal shows through.
Next I saturated the wrapped wire assembly with epoxy.
The epoxy is just to stabalize the wrapping. Does not add stiffness.

This extra stiffener wire performs admirably and removes all flexing.
The trigger is now solid and precise.

For this experiment I actually fabricated a new trigger bar. I did not want to mess up my factory trigger bar if it didn't work.
As you can see the trigger bar is a little rough, but it worked and proves the concept.
Once proven I applied the fix to the factory trigger bar.

P.S. One safety note I found regarding the fabrication of a complete new trigger bar. If you get the length wrong the safety might not engage. That is why I only recommend stiffening the original factory trigger rod.

Thinking about converting my Walther G22 into a Bullpup

Huh?

The G22 is a Bullpup...

My Walther G22 Bullpup Trigger Job is better than a wad of Cardboard.

Don't weld use silver-tin solder, its an electrical grade and can be used to reinforce the bar by simply repeating the wraps with a wire that will accept silver tin solder and soldering he length of the bar, better than epoxy, its easy to remove with solder gun.

Sounds like a good idea.  Let us know how it works.

Hi Northdude
Im glad your new linkage is working well for you.  Im sure it is an improvement to the original trigger linkage.
However accurate gun part fabrication might be beyond the capability of the tools most of us have on hand.
I experimented with my Most Ultimate Walther G22 trigger Job method first with a trigger bar I fabricated myself,
I found that if the length is not exactly right the safety did not engage.  My experiment did validate my thinking that
the Most Ultimate Walther G22 trigger Job would cure the spongy trigger feel.
Armed with these two findings I went ahead and stiffened the stock trigger bar using my now famous
stiffener/wire-wrap/epoxy method.
Resulting in a perfectly functioning Walther G22 rifle with a firm feeling trigger.
