So I was wondering which is the best .22 target pistol with extended barrel.
And want to know if they can eat all types of .22. Or just the expensive ones.
My heart is kind of between Walther SP22 and Beretta Target87. Just confused.
And want something easy to assemble.
All ideas, sugggestions are more than welcome.

Ruger Mk III Competition is a good one for target shooting. Very accurate and no ammo problems. You can see its performance both in Handgun Accuracy thread and in Competitive Shooting and Marksmanship thread.
Walther SP22 is known to be ammo sensitive.
Have never fired Beretta target87 but have heard good things about it.
Best of luck in purchase. :)

Salam All,
I OWN the following and they work FLAWLESSLY with all ammo - And I have owned most of the listed below for over three years:
Beretta 87
Walther P22
Walther SP22 (bought this one to the ISB GTG)
Browning Buckmark
Ruger 22/45
Advantage Arms Glock .22 conversion

The Walther has always been my all around carry for fun plinking.
It may NOT give the same .25inch group at fifty yards as the Ruger or the Buckmark - but then again its VERY CLOSE like .50inch group.
All the guns have performed very well for me in scenarios like shooting at extreme distances at a brick or something.

The Mark III Hunter is one of the best but do remember its only target gun - you can't carry it everywhere.

My humble experience with -22s first hand is as under;

best all around Ruger Mk 2 and 3
best for CC or back up Walther PPK or Walther PP
best Match gun for Standard Pistol Match Hammerli 280, Pardini and Walther Expert GSP
best International Rapid Fire Pistol Match Pardini RF
My list of lemons include the Walther SP 22

Moeen bhai, .50 inches group at 50 yards :o :o This is dream shooting. Is it the result from machine rest or shot by a shooter?

Dear Sir
You nailed it. It was actually Walther Expert GSP that I had in mind.
Thanks.
Let's see If I can find and afford It.

Dear Brother's
You have voted MakIII hunter as your favorite. But one bottleneck that comes to mind is
assembling the beauty?
And If i remember correctly older version used in the movie Assassins starring Stallone and Banderas.

Best Regards

Ok. I played a bit with Target 87 at a dealer's place. Just loved It. There was some expensive sights on it too. Just awesome.

They don't come with the gun. Separate product and additional bill.
Waheed bhi, If you ever get bored with your Target 87. I would be the right
person to contact.

how about the old bird colt woodsman .22lr ? any one own or every used it ? the third series is i think the best looking .22 target pistol ever made the feel in hand is just great and its 6" barrel gets you amazing range and accuracy . it is a very old pistol though, some model or most of the model are pre ww2 , but still is one of the best target pistol i have ever seen ,or used .

Salam All,
Ahh, the Browning Buckmark CONTOUR URX 5.5. I have had the pleasure of owning one now for about three years. GREAT gun.... direct rival to the Rugers (which I also own). I like the Contour URX for the ergonomic grip angle (which unless you have the Ruger 22/45 like me) which on the standard Rugers is slightly more angled. The buckmark looks and functions just as good as the Rugers I have owned in my lifetime. It is I have found to be a very very accurate gun. It comes with fingergroove rubber grips, scope rails, gold plated trigger, adj sights.

COLT WOODSMAN is a dream pistol, it has a tremendous collector value. There is nothing like it .
