Default looking for a 22 LR pistol.

Hey guys i am going to get a 22 LR pistol. Does anyone out there have a favorite. I of course loomed at the Mark III but am not a fan of the feel. I also checked out the Sig Sauer mosquito and was pleasantly surprised by both fit and feel. Any opinions would be appreciated.

The mosquito doesn't seem to get many good reviews, and the browning buck mark seems to be well liked.

I personally don't own a .22 pistol, this is what I hear from other members

The walther p22's are a decent value and you can change barrels. Without exception, every one that I've handled needed feed ramp work to eat HP's but other than that they were surprisingly fun to shoot. The barrel s also threaded so adding a suppressor is easy.

I should have added the Buckmark. With the bull barrel it's one of the most accurate 22 pistols I've ever fired. I picked the walther for my response since they practically give them away price wise so it's a good value.

Personally I really like my Ruger Mark III 22/45.
It is supposed to have the feel of a 45.
While I dont feel that it truelly replicates the feel of the 45 it has a different feel than the other Ruger 22 pistols.

It has been very reliable and feeds well too.

P22 is a great gun. You do have to find the right ammo for it though. Cci minimags feed great in it. Zero problems.

Yup. As I said in my first point, it needed serious feed ramp work to handle almost anything other than stingers. Now it eats lead HP's all day long.

The Sig does tend to have feed issues.. The Browning and Ruger are much better choices.
