I greatly appreciate all the great feedback. Looks like you can't go wrong with the Ruger 22/45. And the shopping begins.

Sounds like the 22/45 would be what you are looking for.

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 ?
if you really like the Ruger Mark III, they do offer the 22/45 model with a threaded muzzle for a suppressor. i have the Mark III 22/45 Target model with the 5.5" barrel. excellent pistol.

I learned about the kel tec .22 magnum

30 rounds mag for a pistol that's impressive.
I haven't gotten any reviews but something to consider.

The only thing that the .22 mag ammo is the same price like a 9mm. so do the math.

Capacity or effectiveness. ??

I have a GSG and love it. I've had very few problems. Mostly user error. I tend to get too high with my hands and let my finger drag the slide causing FTF. If you want to shoot steel challenge, I don't think you can shoot 22mag. Not sure about that but I'm sure someone will chime in.

Bought me a SR22 last week, took it out and put about 250 rounds though it and couldn't be happier. New gun so aftermarket parts are lacking but will be here very soon.

I have the GSG .22 and have no complaints with my purchase at all. Also with websites like cwaaccessories.com you can trick them out if you really want to. Overall fun gun for the price.

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.
Jon,

I have the same model. Do you have the part #/source where you purchased the rail mount and grips?

You are considering a wide variety of 22 handguns that are quite different in many ways. All you left out was a revolver.

Since the only ones not discussed so far are the GSG & Sig Sauer 1911 22LRs, let me toss in my two cents. (I have the Sig) The guns are identical except for the finish on the and Sig offers a better warranty.

If you like a 1911, you're going to like a GSG/Sig. It is just like shooting one of the big boys until you pull the trigger. The Sig is fairly accurate out the box, but can't say it's as accurate as a Buckmark or Mark III. If you like modifying a gun you can get quality performance parts from GSGPro.com and ZR tactical Solutions.

The Ruger 22/45 comes with a threaded barrel option, I believe.
