I'm voting for a Ruger MII it's fun to shoot and easy to care for. If you want something special find an AMT Auto mag long slide. AMT isn't popular but the long slide in 22mag is a truly fun pistol to shoot and if you can find one it will go up in value as they are not so common. It also shoot as well as a Ruger mk2 or mk3

I've never shot a Browning .22 and the only slide type simi auto I've shot was a 9mm High Point, which I gave away just to get rid of.

But, I love my MKII 22/45! The only dislike I've had for it (besides the PITA disassembly/reassembly procedure) it's ability/inability to shoot cheap ammo.

When the gun was new, I could shoot nothing but CCI mini-mags, anything else would jam at least once per 10 rd. mag. 3,000 - 4,000 rd's later, it will shoot anything I put in it.

I've always loved the way the gun feels in my hand, and have had great luck with the stock sites. However, I would like to get a set of better sites for it. I think the gun is far more accurate than the factory sites will allow.

I was starting to question my purchase because I was having the same feeding/ejecting problems with my mkiii 22/45. I had 5-600 rounds through it and no sign of improvement. I ran 100 cci minimags through it without a single problem, and after that it would eat anything I fed it. Haven't had a single jam since.

You're not going to get a more accurate .22 for the money than an 22/45. While I prefer the mk2 series over the mk3 due to the magazine disconnect safety of the mk3s, it's easily done away with.

One other thing I noticed about my MK II is if I 'slam' the magazine in too hard, the first cartridge tends to pop half way out of the magazine. This leaves it at a funny angle, and and the bolt can't be closed. It will jam on this first round instead of pushing the round into the chamber.

Easily fixed though, I just don't 'slam' the mag in that hard. Which is sometimes hard to remember after shooting my AR, because if you don't 'slam' the mag in on it, it won't lock in right.

I wonder, could the mag for the MK II just be worn and holding the first cartridge in a little too loose?

Never had to slam either mag home to get them to work right.

My AR is new and tight. I've pushed the mag in until I was sure it was locked in, then moved the gun around and had the mag fall out. I've also closed the action and not had a round loaded. When I inspected it I found the mag wasn't quit in place, and the bolt/carrier was sliding just above the first cartridge.

yup, i would say the browning buckmark. It's accurate and everything like the other guy said and it will fire any ammo you put in it. It will handle anything.
