They got beretta M92 .22 conversion kits for 270.00, it seems awful expensive though

I would go the the ruger mark III. This is a good gun, reliable and accurate. If per chance you happen to own a 1911 handgun I would seriously look into a Kimber 22 conversion or a marvel 22 conversion. I think Wilson Combat is offering a 22 conversion as well. I personally have a ruger markIII 22/45 and a kimber 22 conversion. Both shoot well, but the ruger is a little bit more accurate. Just personal opinion.

Default Ruger Mark III is a great pistol.

That said I am having trouble with the front sight that is getting shaken loose.

It has great accuracy and a perfect fit and fell for my hands.
I have the Mark III hunter model in stainless with a 5 1/2 inch bull bbl.

The only other 22 lr pistol I would get if I had unlimited funds would be the S&W model 41. That is a deluxe out-of-the-box tack-driving-work-of-art. Its not cheap though!!!
Let us know what you pick up.

If your budget is really tight, do some shopping for a USED Ruger- I swear you could wear out a ball peen hammer before you wear one of these out.
I got mine gently used for $500

My personal fav. is the Browning Buckmark. It is as good as the Ruger, just alot less of a pain to clean.
The Ruger is great also. If you shoot them alot, you get accustomed to the process to reassemble them.
I would seriously narrow my search to these two, unless you find something dirt cheap.
Don't be afraid to buy these two manufacturers used. They are very good quality.

I picked up my Mark 3 (Scarlett) this morning, NM doesnt have a waiting period thankfully

Out of 50 rounds, I had one Failure to Fire (It was probably the ammo) and one jam, nothing too bad considering its a brand new gun and needs to be broken in

Armedoc. That causes me pain to have read that. I'd go down to whoever sold you that gun and tell them you know they burned you and not only will you never purchase a firearm there again, but you're gonna bad mouth them every chance you get.

Indyfan, that looks fun! Been a while since I gifted my MK I.

Hmmmmmm.....
