Well I just sold my Walther P22 and I am in the market for another semi auto .22 pistol. Even though my Walther had more rounds through it than any other firearm I own, I was never happy with its accuracy or reliability. Therefore, I am in the market for a replacement plinker.

Ruger SR22- like ruger name, anyone know if this has a threaded barrel.

Ruger MK3- I know this is an accurate gun, only downside is I like a threaded barrel for a suppressor.

Smith and Wesson M&P 22 - this one just caught my eye, do not really know anything about it.

1911 .22- maybe a GSG or Sig...

Any thoughts, suggestions, or additional firearms I should consider ?

I have a Phoenix HP22 and like it a lot.

Browning BuckMark. You can get a after market threaded barrel for it. Very easy to change out a Buckmark barrel.

Ruger MkIII 22/45

P45GMK3PRRP no sights, picatinny rails, 4.5" threaded

P45GMK3RP fixed sights, 4.5" threaded

Both can be fit with 1911 grip panels if you want. Get rid of the
%$#&% magazine safety, drop in a volquarzen trigger, screw on your can.
Get some magazine basepads for it from TT Custom--worth every penny.

Only downside is that Ruger doesn't offer adjustable sights--but that's
fixable.

I have the railed one, with a C-more on it. Wife likes iron sights. We
shoot speed steel with them, and use them for cheap 1911ish practice.

I believe the Ruger Mark III has a threaded barrel or can be ordered with a threaded barrel.

If you want accuracy, look at S&W 41s and older High Standard Supermatic Trophy and Victors. They are expensive, but once you shoot one, you'll know why. I have two Ruger MK II Targets and they can't hold a candle to my High Standards in terms of quality and accuracy.

my sr22 does not have a threaded barrel, so far it has been reliable. accuracy was lacking at 25 yards tho. had to really try to keep them all in a 8 inch circle. but then again that was at 25 yards.

James Bond carries a Walther so if you want to be James Bond do like him.
In my own opinion smith 617 10 rounds revolver is perfect. Specially with the 4 inches barrel the 6 inches isn't bad but it's a bit heavier.
No one shot the 617 and didn't fall in love with it.

Note. It's a bit pricey for a 22

If you want the bees don't complain about the stings.
Good thing Walther is a smith and Wesson affiliate now so pay them a visit to their website.

I hate Rugers based on personal experiences in terms of misfires and stuff but they have the best grip

I'm going with the SR22 myself. Going to put some money down at my local gun shop next week. He hasn't even received the first one from Ruger yet and hopefully I'll be the owner of that gun when it arrives.

ive got a ruger mk3 22/45 they have a sub 5 inch threaded barrel model that comes with or without iron sights. the short barrel lets you use standard velocity rounds without them being driven to super sonic speeds.

highly recomend it.

came with the threaded barrel from the factory.

only mods are i disabled the loaded chamber indicator which improved reliability an astounding amount. went around 7000 rounds without cleaning before it failed to feed. not counting duds of course. also disabled the magazine safety which allows the mags to seat properly/easily and drop free.
