Rugers and Browning Buckmarks have the best reputations IMO.

Since you didn't reply and I would be remiss not to say anything. The colt hunstman (based on condition) when .22 ammo in available is $1000+ gun. I've seen them sold to ffls for around $150 (cringe) and then promptly flipped for close to 10 times the price.
Don't make that mistake.

Ha, yes I've pretty much got it down now. The first time took me about two hours I wanted to smash it with a sledge hammer. lol

That's about how I felt first time I did a trigger job on one. Lol

Okay. In my opinion, the Ruger Mark I, II, or III are very nice .22's. I don't want to hear any complaints about stripping it for cleaning. If I can do it, you all can do it. I bought my Ruger from JonM who could take it apart and put it back together within a minute or so with no tools. I'm not that good but it's not that difficult to do, either. The worst trouble I had with my Mark II was trying to install a new thumb safety to go with my Valquartsen grips. But I'm telling you, every time I shoot that pistol I forgive it for being a "problem child".

I have a Ruger Mark II, a Browning Buckmark, and the Smith and Wesson 22-A1. Although I enjoy all of them, as far as weight, comfort, trigger pull and accuracy I will say I use my Smith and Wesson 22-A1 more than any other. It's just very enjoyable to shoot and it won't break the bank. Fantastic training pistol from my wife and kids as well. The target shown is at 45 feet with Federal 36 gr. ammo. Extra magazines are inexpensive and it's a great target / backpack gun. The original price is pretty good too at about $300 or so. I have no complaints and highly recommend it.

I have a Ruger 22/45. I wont be getting rid of it anytime soon. Super accurate. I never clean it. (Because it is a pain in the butt) And it always goes bang. My step daughter has a 22A. I took it apart to clean it for her. I was not impressed. To each his own. I believe my Ruger is much more accurate. Maybe I am a lot better shot. Well I know I am. But I still like my Ruger better.

Economical? Try an Airsoft gun.

Dont remember the name but the bolt latch upgrade for the Rugers takes all the fuss and frustration out of taking apart and reassemble. They had the kit at NRA convention for $55

I have the 22a with a cheap Red Dot from Walmart. At 15 yds there is one hole in the target where I emptied 2 mags. I certainly like the 22a with the 7" barrel. It's a full size gun with the appropriate heft for target and general plinking. Mine was around $200....but that was 10 years ago. Keep it cleaned and stay away from Remington ammo and it's just fine. Get the one with the better fibre optic sights is you aren't going to add your own red dot or holographic..
