I haven't (yet) read through the whole thread but, if your looking for the very best .22 LR pistol, that can only be a S&W model 41. Nothing else even comes close.

Oops, just read through it all. Seems a couple have already mentioned the 41.

The best .22 cannot be defined unless you state it's intended use.

If you're going to use it for serious competition, a Smith 41 or a Hammerli would fill the bill.

For a range gun the Rugers and Brownings are near perfect.

If you want a plinking/hiking/tackle box gun, the SR22, Walther, SIG etc are great.

The others fall somewhere in between

Well I took my MNT 22 out to the range tonight for its Maiden voyage. What a fun gun, accurate and great grip
Glad you like your new M&P 22. But be careful because you might just find out that you need one in 9mm too.

Most of firearm mishaps occur due to poor maintenance, or using bad ammunition. So stop criticizing eachothers oppinions and let the guy be proud of and enjoy his pistol.
It's not made by S&W it's made by umarex.

Not heard the bad stuff about the Smith 22's. I don't have one and really have no interest n one but they seem OK. My lack of interet lays mainly in the fact I have a couple really good 22 pistols and probably wont get another...Unless I just can't run from the deal or something. I have a 22/45 Ruger that I put a Tactical Solutions bbl/receiver on that is a serious tack driver. Have no idea what it is made of. Some type of aluminum. Shot the crap out of it and it's still the most impressive 22 auto I've ever held. Got a cheap 1911-22 (Chipppia..That spelled right?) that does as well as I need it to. Not as good as the Ruger but it wasn't made to. Both sure are a blast to shoot!

Look, 22's are usually not usually built like tanks...because they are 22's! Find one and shoot the hell out of it. If the OP likes his Smith then great. I don't think I would but I aint buying it so I can really give a crap truth be told. I hope he and any other person that buys some pistol I don't really care for get more out of it then they ever expected. I just don't see it as my place to tell someone that got a bad gun. If it's the case the truth will come to light pretty quick.

Oh..I really like the Buckmarks too. Great triggers out of the box.

It's okay for you to stop crapping on this thread. You have beaten the horse to death then kicked it some more. Go troll somewhere else.
