    Anyone have any suggestions for a .22 pistol? i want it mainly for plinking at the range and to fine tune my marksmanship with a pistol so i can see what im doing wrong. plus its always good to have a gun that shoots super cheap ammo. i want a good mag capacity, reliable, and accurate.

    welll. the best way to do this is go to a dealer and hold all the .22 pistols. there are so many to choose from.. the best one to get is one that fits you good. but some options are.. browning buckmark, ruger mark II or III, walther p22 and many, many more. from semi autos to revolvers. just hold a bunch and find one you like

    I was thinking the same thing. I have 2 Mark II pistols. I love 'em!

    i just checked out the ruger site and looked at the mk IIIs. they have some with a 1911 grip on them, figured that might help since i plan on eventually getting a 1911.

    The Ruger would be a good choice for you! Also the Browning Buck Mark is a good pistol.

    I got the Ruger mklll 22/45 with the shorter 4" barrel because I needed to improve my accuracy and I wanted something to match the size of my 9mm,but don't be decieved,that short barrel will reach out and smack stuff at 100 yards no problem.It's super reliable and accurate and at $265 NIB,it makes it all even better.Note:The mklll's hate any ammo that's too flat tipped,shoots round nose or round nose hollow points just fine.

    I would recommend, like the others have, the Browning Buck Mark or the Ruger Mark series. Also have you considered a revolver? They're loads of fun :D.

    ive thought about that but then i came to the conclusion i might as well get a conversion kit for my 1911 when i do get it so i can swap back and forth as needeed.

    i am seriously considering getting one of the rugers.... and now that you say that about the mkIIIs its more to consider lol. thanks for the info tho. this is the input i need

    the browning is a good lookin pistol and one im really lookin at.... and i havent really considered a revolver. they are fun to shoot but i want something with a higer capacity magazine and semi auto because i dont own a larger caliber revolver right now. im sure i will get one in the future tho. my dad has a .38 revolver thats pretty fun to shoot and surprisingly accurate.

    havent had that issue with mine. but i made a few simple mods removing the mag safety and loaded chamber indicator and also removed the internal key lock but i dont think the key lock had any effect i just detest key locks. plus i typically run it supressed which adds a bit of backpressure enhancing reliability

    thats an interesting idea... i didnt even think of suppressing mine.... how much did that cost you and how difficult was it to make the pistol recieve a suppressor?

    I was refering to a rimfire revolver like the Ruger Single Six or the Ruger Single Ten.

    yea i know. but im just not a fan of revolvers. fun to shoot but to me not as practical as an auto loader. and im purchasing a .22 pistol to make myself a better shot with my current pistol, an FNP 40. any clue if an lcr is available as a rimfire?

    if you're not completely opposed to a revolver, you could check out some used H&R 22 revolvers, most were 9 (9!!!) shot & very acccurate & reliable. you can get a nice one for under $200 with a bit of looking.

    i do agree with peoples mentions of the Ruger. I just picked up a Ruger Standard .22 with a so-so outside finish but excellent bore, after checking the serial number i found it was made in 1955. it still eats, shoots, & spits out anything i feed it without an issue. plus there are so many different barrel lengths & styles that it'll make your head spin

    Just making sure what I was refering to came across correctly :eek:. Regarding the LCR, I believe it's only chambered in .38 special and .357 magnum.

    yep i gotcha. the lcr does only come in 38 or 357. i like that it is hammerless tho.
