so i have been thinking for a year or so that i would like to get a gun mostly for target shooting and something to take with me when we go 4 wheeling in the jeep and camping and i like how cheep 22 ammo is so i was looking at 22 lr pistols and found the s&w 22a and i was thinking about getting the 107426 it has the 5.5" bull barrel and the high-viz green sight and was wondering what some of your thoughts were on this gun.
I like mine. I've actually loaned it for some NRA Basic Pistol Safety classes.
It's an accurate little peashooter and even when some problems occurred (not the fault of the gun), S&W not only paid shipping both ways and fixed it fast for free...they sent me extra parts, too.
They've got excellent customer service.
Oh, and this was shot with my 22A from 35ft - offhand (no sandbags or rests)...and I've got a witness somewhere around here.
If I was a better shot, they'd have all been a little lower.
I bought mine for plinking and handgun practice. It is also a good gun for introducing new shooters. It is as accurate as Jetgirl's. Mine does not like Remington ammo, everything else it seems to run OK.
Not a bad "starter 22" add $45 for Ruger mark 3 or 22/45 (allow the use of scope with scope rail included)add $50 for beretta Neos or $85 for Walther P-22
Subtract $90 for Phoenix hp22a My friend's favorite lil' 22 ( with safety devices removed)
One nice thing about the Neos& Walther P-22/ Phoenix Arms HP22A is a very small grip that favor children &slight of build. Don't make the mistake most guys make- Take the wife when firearms shopping, it shows that you value her input& you'll never guess just what Her hand can hold securely & propertly
