Default .22 pistol question. If you have any experience.

Hi All, I am looking to get a .22 pistol for plinking. But I cant decide between a revolver or a semi-auto. Are there any pros/cons I should consider. And any particular brand that is better in your opinion. I have plenty of 9mm's and 1911's but this is relatively new territory for me as I have never owned one. Thanks everyone for your help and input. Ed

I have both but much prefer the semi-auto's. I have a Ruger Mark II Target in stainless that's my favorite.

I prefer semi auto pistols. The Browning Buck Mark and Ruger Mark III are proven platforms. The new Ruger SR22 Pistol looks very cool... it's on my short list.

Yes, in my opinion Ruger has the most bang for your buck in great, dependable 22's. The Mark II & III come in a variation of barrel lengths that are very accurate and trouble free. Their new SR-22 looks to be a nice gun also, but I have never shot one......yet.

Chiappa 191122lr...inexpensive, 2 10 rd mags, great fun. It just keeps going and going, 500 + through it so far, and just 2 fte's. Also, GSG makes a similar gun, not sure about the price or reliability...

The GSG 1911-22 hands down!

Made by Walther in Germany and sold unde several US marks like ATI, Sig, Colt.........

I have the ATI and have not had any issues with this great gun.

If you are a 1911 experienced shooter this gun will require no learning curve.

How many rounds put through it? I'm thinking about it.

Semi auto would be my recommendation. 22 ammo is cheap so you can burn through it rather than burning through your centerfire calibers. Ruger MK II Target is definitely the most bang for the buck. But if you want to get something on the high end, the S&W Model 41 is a very fine piece.

The Ruger MK2 & 3 are very good guns. When you factor in price, they look even better. They are a also great choice if you love aftermarket goodies. The S&W 41 is a very nice pistol, but they ain't cheap either, it has a spot on my wish list.
You mention that you have a number of semi autos, have you considered a conversion kit for any of them? I have a CZ Kadet kit for My CZ75BD. It's a bit pricey as kits go, but it's accurate and reliable. If you own a Glock a I know there are a some available as well. 1911 kits are available as well. I have no direct experience with either of them, however.
I'm still lacking a .22 revolver, but if your tastes run that way, there are a few good choices out there. S&W has a couple on my wish list.
