many fine choices, choosing one depends on what exactly you want [ie: sa or da] and your price range.
sa: herritage rough rider 22 combo $200, made in usa. my first pistol, very reliable, accurate, 6.5" is perfectly balanced.
if you can afford the ruger than get it.
da: very little personal experience with any .22 da wheelgun.

I've had an old model 3 screw single six in 22mag for years and never had a problem with it. Get one and it will last forever. Best regards Dick

There are some alright double action .22 mag revolvers,but they are usually expensive.The Ruger single six convertible 22LR/22Mag is less expensive and tougher,you could throw it against a tree with no issues,solid gun.Plus I know you'll appreciate the 22LR cylinder that it comes with since the ammo is 80% cheaper than the mags.

My GP100 doesn't recoil much with .38special loads from wally's. It has a 6" barrel that helps reduce recoil by weight & leverage. It also has squishy grips to reduce felt recoil. I paid $400 for it new but long displayed. When i shoot .357mag rounds, there is noticeably more recoil. http://www.bulkammo.com/handgun/bulk-.38-spl-ammo Ammo isn't horribly expensive, but it isn't .22lr. Of course, .22mag isn't all that cheap either http://www.bulkammo.com/rimfire/bulk-.22-wmr-ammo
