What's better, a convertible sport car or a dually pickup truck???
What's the best .22 is a question that can't be answered.
If you want a general purpose plinking and trail gun, light weight, double action etc, something like the SIG Mosquito, Ruger SR22, S&W .22/32 kit gun etc would fill the bill.
If you want a gun strictly for the range, a Buckmark or Ruger target model would be hard to best.
What you will use it for will determine which one is best.
For those who have fought for it, freedom has a taste the protected will never know!
Or at least they did before political correctness
