Gotta be careful with the Sig Mosquito.
I've seen three of them so far with either a broken slide or a crack on the frame next to the mag well.
In addition to that they only like the real high velocity 22 LR ammo.

My vote would be a Colt Woodsman.
Smoothest .22 action I've ever used in a pistol and they're better shooters than the rugers.

It's hard to beat High Standards. They are considered by many as the cream of the crop. I have a Ruger MK II Target and recently bought a High Standard Victor. The Victor is leaps and bounds ahead of the Ruger.

A Ruger, Buckmark, or Hi-Standard with a 6-7/8" bull barrel...

The s&w m&p22 is lots of fun. Also the lcr 22. Great trigger. I prefer the buckmark over the mark III, but both are great. I would get whatever is most similar to your carry gun.

Thanks everyone for your help and input. Ed
Ruger mark iii is great for range and plinking. Feed it federal auto match. I like ruger single sixes also. Very versatile as a trail gun since you can shoot lr, hp, snake shot, and wmr. I carry the single six more. I shoot the mark iii more.

I have the Gov't model without the rail...it is fun to shoot and easy to take apart. I have very small hands so I replaced the grips with ultra thin ones.

I've used Rugers, I liked them. Had a conversion kit for my Wilson Commander, it was made by Wilson also, sold that. I kept my H&R target revolver. The down side is that it has a loading gate and rod like a single action. It is double action, but is a much better shooter single. Bottom in pic.

The GSG 1911 .22 is the best fun gun around. You can add 1911 parts and the clips are steel not plastic. I had a Chiappa 1911 was not what I wanted. I shoot a Mdl. 41 S&W for Compt. but for fun the GSG 1911 is my choice. The GSG really likes the Federal Bulk ammo.

I've had great results with my Hamden made Hi-Standard Supermatic Trophy Militarys.

I have the Ruger Mark III target and I love it. I went from shooting 500 rounds on a Saturday because it was cheap to do so to joining a Bullseye league at the local range and shooting competitively on a weekly basis. This gun fits my needs exactly. I was able to learn how to shoot better with this gun and then without buying another gun, I was able to do a few upgrades and make it more fun to shoot. Not to say anything bad about other guns because I don't know but I do know that this gun is fun and shoots very well for the money.
