    I'm looking around for a good .22 pistol; I like the Walther but I was wondering if there is another that might have a higher mag. capacity than 10.

    It surprises me that they don't double stack rounds in magazines for the .22. I mean they're so tiny!

    Anyway, let me know what you guys got.

    I really love my ruger Mk III, nice accurate little pistol and rarely, if ever, jams

    Get a Ruger Charger. It uses the magazines for the 10/22.

    You can't stack rimfire ammunition. They need a ritary mag or one like the 10/22 or Rem 597 uses.

    For a true pistol I really like the Browning Buckmark.

    When it comes to Fun, Plinking Pistols...NOTHING beats the Calico M-110!!
    100-rounds per mag & has a 3/8'ths rail you can slap a laser on :D

    I'd second you look into the Charger if you want something with a greater than 10 round mag. The Calicos are fun to shoot but are hard to find and are not extremely accurate.

    Mine does alright...if you remember that its a 4" barrel and treat it as such :)

    Great for pie plates out to 25 yards , but after that, its shotgun patterns.
    Laser helps a LOT!!

    They're all over Gunbroker & other auction sites...

    The Buckmark, Ruger (Mk series and 22/45), Smith & Wesson 22A, the Beretta Neos, Whitney Wolverine, and nearly every other semi-auto 22 pistol use single stack mags. There are some exceptions, I know of a couple of 22 magnums that use double/stagger stack mags, not sure how there working out, the Remington 597 uses a stagger stack as well. (see quote & link from Remington below)

    The Ruger 10/22 actually uses a rotary mag.

    Smith Wesson 617 Speedloader

    I have a Smith & Wesson 617 10 shot and a Speed Bee speedloader and loading block. You can reload in 10 rounds in about 1 second. The smith 617 is a great gun well built accurate!

    Buy the Smith at you local gun store I found the 617 speedloader at speed-beez.webstorepowered.com

    be sure and get the loading blocks that's what make this gun fast to reload

    I have of there largest loading block and I can load up a value pack of ammo for walmart and I ready for a lot of fast shooting that's how I got the knick name master blaster.

    I have a k-22 masterpiece with the HKS loader wish someone made a loader like the speed bee for the six shot.

    If you want a highly accurate 22LR pistol and if the price doesn't matter,I'd say a S&W 41 or a High Standard pistol.They are probably the most accurate 22's ever made.
    Next would be either a Browning Buckmark (my favorite) or a Ruger MkII orMkIII.The Ruger might shoot a little better than the Browning,but the takedown/reassembly of the Ruger is a PIA,and takes time to learn how to do it.

    I recently purchased a Ruger Mark 3 Target, and I think it is the best .22 pistol I have ever shot.

    If you want a tactical type .22 i prefer the bersa or firestorm .22s, If you can find one they are IMO much better quality then the walthers. (damn zinc slides.)

    S&w .22

    I had no idea these were so much fun- everyone who has shot it has had a smile on their face.

    I have one too. It's my favorite gun. you may want a speedloader for that ten shot cylinder...I found a great little speedloader for it on Amazon.com just search for the Speed Beez 617 speedloader to find it get a loading block too. A big one you'll be glad you did. Makes reloading almost as much fun as shooting the 617!

    The top of mine says Speedbeez.com

    I would agree with all the Mk supporters... For a reasonably priced .22 they are probably the most dependable and ergonomically the most like shooting a standard handgun. This is especially true of the 22/45 series. Take down can be a headache, but do it a couple times and it becomes easier. They require this be done fairly infrequently, though, and for my money it's a Mk or nothing...

    Old stuff still out there for sale

    The late 1980's and early 1990's anything was possible. Calico,Grendle,Tec


    I thought I'd shake the tree some with some classic blaster rimfire handgun suggestions!
    I never own'd a Grendel model 30 but had two buddys that did!:) they both liked them even though they were finicky of the .22mag ammo they fed through ther 30 round mags:eek:
    they had a carbine big brother the R31.
    I had a Calico 110 but lost it in a bet.(dont ask)
    and had a Tec 22 for many years and lost count of the bricks of ammo that spill'd that bullet hose.

    Ran across a high standard m101 in nickel Monday at a local pawn shop, they are asking $400 for it, granted it looks in near mint condition, no scratches dings exc. But is it really worth this much, I would be buying it as a teaching pistol not as a collectable, which is how they are looking at it
