I have a S&W .22LR Masterpiece that was made somewhere in the late 1940s before they had numbers.

My favorite is still my 617, but my Ruger Mark II is a very close second. I'd hate to have to get rid of either one of them.

I had a Sig Mosquito a few years ago when they first came out. Bought it because it was like my P226, but never really cared for it. It was kind of finicky about ammo, and extra mags were relatively expensive. Seems like people are having better luck with them nowadays, but I was really disappointed. It was rare to get through a full mag without a hiccup.

If you're on a budget it might not be a bad idea to look for a used 22 of some sort.

Have to show a bit of love for my Beretta U22 Neos.

For an inexpensive target pistol, it really is a fantastic deal, especially if you're one who likes options with your piece...

1) It's completely reliable. I've never had a FTF with new ammunition, nor have I EVER had a FTE when the round went bang. Feeds bulk federal hp crap flawlessly, same with higher-velocity CCI and the like.

2) It's accurate. I've got the 7.5" barrel, but the sights are easy to use, easy to adjust (adjustable sights, btw!), and they zero very well. The full-length picatinny rail on top also lets you mount any type of optic you care to buy... I have a cheapo $30.00 amazon-bought red dot sight from NCStar and it's actually held zero for close to a year now. Brilliant.

This is done at about 25 feet, rapid-fire.



3) It's customizable. Don't like your barrel? Buy a new one. The entire system is modular; you can break it down to individual components without tools, including the separation of upper receiver/barrel. Fit a new barrel. Fit a new grip. Fit a carbine kit. Whatever you want to do with it. This modularity also makes it extraordinarily easy to repair and replace parts. There are not a lot of moving pieces to the action and it's easy to see what's going wrong and what needs replaced.

4) It's DIFFERENT. Maybe this isn't as big for others as it is for me, but I love the fact that no one has ever seen a U22 in person before... mine draws looks wherever I take it, no matter who's actually looking.

Of course, mine is a bit eccentric... so...

I've had a Ruger Mark 1 target auto since early in 1962... It never jams, it never fails to go bang, and I shoot it about 250 rounds a week out of it.

That is a lot of ammunition sent down the range.

I have many other .22 semi-auto hand guns. I have several high quality High Standard pistols, two Victors and a Supermatic Citation. I have three S&W model 41's. I also have a S&W 617, a K22, a model 34 and a model 63.

I like .22's either in rifles, or pistols.

A couple months ago I bought a new Ruger SR22 pistol, which is a close copy of a Walther P22. I love this little gun, its easy to carry, holds tight groups (even for me) and eats all types of ammo.

Have a beautiful 3 screw Ruger Single Six .22/.22 Mag. Also have a High Standard High Sierra .22/.22Mag w/ 7" octagonal barrel. Wouldn't trade either for the world. I've always wanted to pick up a Ruger MKII bull barrel.

Whatever you get just go have fun!

what is your other gun? can you get a .22 understudy or conversion unit for it? If not, I'd seriously consider replacing it with one that has such a rimfire "practice gun". You'll be a better shottist/gunhandler for having the 10x more shooting at the same price for the ammo, at least. That is, if you practice intelligently and diligently, not just blast away.

So far I've been looking at...

Beretta Neos
Browning Buck Mark
Ruger Mk. III (not standard)
Smith & Wesson 22A (41 is too expensive)
Sig Sauer Mosquito
Walther P22 and SP-22
Love my 41 but don't know if I could afford it today. bought mine in 1973. The only thing I will say is she has to try them and the one that tickles her giggle is the one she will like and will shoot. New shooter should be sure it is easy to field strip and easy to clean, it makes maintenance less of a bother and just a routine chore more likely to be done if you don't need to be an engineer to put the gun back together again.

One other thing, the mosquito is a crap shoot, some are stalwarts and function fine with anything you feed them and some are a pure pain in the yuppers, that is where its a pain, low and aft. You either will love the heck out of them or would rather toss it off a very high mountain into a very deep hole. I never met anyone in between.

Hello, I have a sig mosquito and have enjoyed it for about two years. I purchased an extra 10 rd sig mag. It has never had a hiccup and is more accurate than I am. I dont think you will be dissapointed. It Disassembles like all sigs, I find this a plus.

Sorry to type in so late.

Ruger MKII for me. Accurate and easy to maintain.



Bull barrel is a must have, 6".

Ruger Single Six. Six rounds of fun at a time, then reload.

I would like to get an M&P 22 for training at some point.

Several relatives and myself have Ruger MKII's and love them. Two friends have Buckmarks and I'm very impressed. I recently bought a Ruger SR22 and it's a nice little gun, very packable and lots of fun. I don't find the SR22 to be quite in the same league as the MKII so if I could have only one, it'd be the MKII. Also it's hard to beat Ruger single action revolvers in .22. So many nice choices out there.

My favorite 22s are the Walther PP and PPK/S. They are sleek, sexy, accurate and very easy to clean. Unfortunately they are no longer made, horribly expensive in good condition and the magazine prices stagger the imagination.

I have heard that Walther will be introducing a replica in 2013. I hope it will be the same quality, but we'll have to wait and see.

Another vote for the Ruger. Mine is a Mark 3 Target 22/45 with a bull barrel.

If I could do it all over again i'd buy a Smith 617 and never look back.
My S&W Model 617 is a wonderful revolver...!

My favorite is the Ruger SR22 - very fun to shoot and extremely reliable.

Mark III 22/45 Lite.



I have run about 600 rounds throug it so far and love it!
Light, easy to handle and more than accurate enough for me.
I just this week added a red dot sight to it. I'll report on it after I run it through it's paces.

I favor the buckmark, in the 4" skinny barrel version, because it can be ccw'ed if need be, its safety is much less awkward to manipulate at speed than that of the Ruger, and a barrel swap with the Buck is much easier than the Ruger. The Ruger's upper receiver is the GUN, it has the serial number on it, so you can't get another one, and Ruger .22 autopistol barrels are not only threaded into the receiver, but also silver solder is applied to the threads. So the Buck is a much, much better deal.

For DAO pocket gun practice, I have a Taurus PT22, set up with a 1/2" longer barrel, threaded on "thread protector, upon which a ramped, serrated sight is brazed. The rear top of the slide has been "capped" with 1/8" curved piece of steel, (tig welded all around) so that a REAL rear sight can be dovetailed into the slide. I'd like to fit an extractor, but the dimensions are so "tight" that I have put off the job.

I've owned a S&W 22A a S&W 622 (now out of production) a Ruger bearcat revolver and I currently have a Ruger Standard model (most people mistakenly call it a MK1). My favorite was BY FAR the Smith 622. I couldn't stand the 22A, the bearcat was a Single action revolver and therefore not really a good defensive arm. The Ruger standard is a fine shooter but I just really liked the 622 better. They can be had used for less money than most new.

Get you sent up for life on your third strike over a dinky .22
after all I know WHO you are... and generally WHERE you are

you want I should make a phone call? with all the crap hitting the fan in the gun world I'm sure the cops in your neck of the woods would really like to know about a convicted felon claiming on a public fourm that he owns a gun in violation of federal statute...

lolz...

idiot - you don't have ****, you lying sad sack.

go play in traffic and make yourself useful - just make sure someone posts it to you tube so I can laugh at you.
