Default Perfect .22?

Is there a really good quality .22 handgun that is inexpensive? I like the Ruger sr22. I really like the look of the Sig Sauer Mosquito but I have heard it's very bad reviews. I was wanting some reviews of good guns. I don't like the look of the buckmark and ruger mii and miii. I think they're ugly, I am looking for more of a slide action kind of gun.

The Ruger Mark I, II, or III along with the Browning Buckmarks are very accurate and reliable guns. I have read nothing but poor reviews on the Mosquito and to tell you the truth, I have never heard anything good about any 22 auto pistol that resembles that platform, not to say there isn't one out there somewhere but the Rugers and Brownings have their reputation for a reason, most folks who want a semi auto 22 are going to go with one of these 2 makes because they are proven. I don't have any experience with the SR22, Ruger is known to be a good manufacturer but I don't really see the point to that particular gun, it looks more like a small cc type gun and I don't see the point in carrying a 22. For a hunting/range gun to have fun with I'd stick with one of the Marks or Buckmarks or 22/45s. My opinion is they'd be a much more accurate and enjoyable gun, but then I value function over looks. However I'm sure the SR22 is a decent gun if that's what you're into.

Do you want a revolver? I can't really think of other good ones.

Most .22 LR revolvers are kinda cheap, but funtional.

There are a couple that would be right up your alley. One to look at is the S&W.

Wow
The Ruger Mark III surely did do right by me. A rental it was, too. So it was beat to crap.
Used it for teaching a friend to shoot. She became very good. We both shared that rented Mark III for the ccw course we took. She scored the best of all the students there. My scores weren't too hateful. A great gun - and a rental...
So... I bought my own Mark III ... it happens to be a 22/45 Mark III..

Yea a local gun shop had those Neos things on sale for about $260. I couldn't get past the Buck Rogers look. I ended up with a Ruger 22/45. Haven't got to shoot it yet.

I believe most of the bad SIG Mosquito info is on their early models, issues that I have heard have since been fixed. I shot a new one recently with a member of my gun range, and he put about 700 rounds through it on the first day with only a couple, <4 FTF withit. It seemed to run pretty smooth.

Can't go wrong with a browning buck mark though...you can always add a Tac Solutions upper later on & diff grips if you want to dress it up, but shoots great as is. The GSG 1911's seem to have a good reputation.
