I was looking to purchase a .22LR so I did some range time with the Ruger .22 Hunter MKIII, S&W, Walther P22, Beretta Neo and the Browning 1911-22. My final decision was the Ruger .22LR Hunter MKIII. I really liked the feel of the Ruger. It is very accurate and t will eat anything you feed it! The only down fall I have found is to the Ruger is breaking it down. It is not a simple task, but they all have there downfalls. It is somewhat on the expensive side for a .22LR, but the base Ruger .22LR MKIII is comparable to the other models I mentioned.

I just picked up a Ruger SR-22 on Gunbroker today for the kids. I have a Browning Buckmark which is also a great .22.

I's mine and it's shoots Winchesters and Blazers both. I've put 200 rounds through it and never had any problems. Shots 1" groups at 25 yds and 2" to 3 at 50 yds. Easy to strip and clean too. I have a 22 High Standard Citation that I shoot at matches, but you will have to pay a lot more and they are hard to find too.
I also have the Colt 1911 22 made by Walther. It's has been retired to the safe along with the other Walther. I've never had luck in competition with a Walther. There are a lot of Walther lovers out there though but I just don't see them ever win anything.
Don't let me talk you in to anything though.

out of the 3 mentioned the ruger sr22 is by far the winner.. has a much smoother finish than the p22. so far ive only ran cci but it worked fine and i intend to run cheap stuff the next time out. it fits well and the mag release is like a larger pistol unlike part of the trigger gaurd with the p22. and because its light it has a tiny amount of recoil which is fun. also consider these other 2...the browning buckmark and ruger mk series 1 2 or 3. they are great shooters and eat most types of ammo

I don't know anything about them, but in the research I did on when buying the Ruger and reading reviews, it sounds like the Walther has plenty of issues and is finicky about what you feed it.

I have P22 love it, fun to shoot, use mini mags although i have had very little issues using cheap stuff. The laser you can get for it fits nice and almost looks like it is part of the gun.

I have the GSG 1911 which is the same gun as the sig and it eats anything but gets dirty fast and starts to have some issues after a couple hundred rounds of cheap dirty stuff.
