The SR22 is the best of the bunch in the smaller ones however Walther makes a PPK style 22 and Bersa has a pretty good one also based on the PPK. Look at the S&W M&P 22 for a mid size. There are also several others based on the 1911 style. Some are full size and a couple are reduced size like the Sig. (Not the Mosquito.) There is a large difference between the MKIII and 22-45 Rugers. I have a 22-45 Lite. If you can find a Sig Trailside used, grab it. The 2 I would focus on are the Ruger SR22 and the S&W M&P 22.

Got an SR22 for the wife for Christmas. It is awesome, 100 rd CCI MM, 400 Rem Golden, 50 CCI Stinger and a couple hundred Fed bulk and not ONE problem hand it shoots good and straight. I have also owned a MKII Government Target and it has been flawless for years . Just recently the bolt isn’t staying back on the last round.

I own a S&W model 17 revolver. Very nice gun, but not inexpensive for a 22.

Probably the pistol that stands out in my mind of late is the S&W M&P 22. My brother in law has one. I shot it back a few weeks ago and was very impressed with the trigger.

There is no such thing as perfect and inexpensive. If you want inexpensive, you'll be making some sacrifices.

I have the Beretta Neos. Shoots everything fine and plenty accurate. Styling is not the only thing weird though, the controls are needlessly different.

If you don't mind the styling it's a good gun and relatively cheap.

I do like the S&W M&P 22. I looks like a nice gun.

Default New or Old? what do you want to do?

Id had a few, depends what you want to do with it and your personal prefrence.
Id suggest getting exactly what you want after trying several diffrent types.


for fun fun fun (wherd my pay check go?) I'd get a Calico 110 or a Tec-22.

for plinking a Browning Buck Mark, or a older Colt or any of the Ruger Mk series or a single six revolver.

My all time fave .22 plinker was shooting my friends 1995 Colt .22 automatic, you dont see them much now but they are worth it if you find one, very much like the late 1960's High Standard semi's.


I have a couple older High Standard's one is a Semi and one revolver (Victor and a Sentinel)

My fave revolver is a 4" stainless taurus 941 revolver (.22mag after market grips and wolf spring kit) thats really grown on me that gets allot more use than the old worn 3" HS Sentinel Mk IV.

the hot ones for 2013 are the Ruger SR22P, 22/45 lite, S&W M&P22,Taurus Tracker 922, Walther P22, Sig/GSG 1911-22, Sig Mosquito, Beretta Neo, Browning Buckmark, Charter Arms .22LR, Phoniex HP 22.

Default Perfect .22 LR

I've been shooting .22 LR for about 50-years...I like the CZ-USA line of rimfire rifles. They just came out with a new auto-loader. While I prefer their bolt-action line, all of their products are great...When if comes to rimfire handguns I have always found any of the Ruger Mark series to be exceptional, reliable, and accurate shooters for their price. If you want beauty look at the S&W M41 or any of the older High Standard Citation models. Good luck on your search and shooting.

GSG 1911-22 (Sig Sauer 1911-22) has been a great pistol for me. I shot a friends Sig model a few times and loved it, the feel and the weight, plus fairly accurate...so I bought one of the GSG models (Little bit cheaper, same gun) and it has been working flawlessly. You can also get some neat aftermarket parts for it, as well as use different 1911 grips....might have to do some fitting for the ambi safety though. This gun rocks!
