    Who has a 22lr pistol?

    Guys, I'm looking to get a 22lr pistol for casual target shooting. I'm not interested in the Keltec PMR, but aside from that, my only requirement is that it be a dedicated 22 design. So that rules out all conversion kits, things like the Sig Mosquito, the ISSC M22, along with any variation of a 1911. Anyways, if you have a 22 pistol or have experience with one, please tell me what you like about it? What do you dislike? What would you recommend?

    I have fired Rugar and Browning Buckmark. I like both of them. They are fine target / plinking pistols. Try to find any of the two. I have also fired Walther P22 but that has some FTFs. But Mian Jee is quite happy with his P22Q.

    P22 is based on the P99 anyways so it's not quite what I want. Was it Ruger's 22/45 that you tried Leon? It seems the 22/45 and the Buckmark are two of the most popular choices in this category. I'm sure there are good reasons for that, but it would be nice to have something different. Which one of those did you like better?

    Fudge, I have a standard mark ii with 4" tapered pipe & Fixed sights. It is the most fun shooting gun i ever had, equally liked by kids & friends. Leon being a dear brother & friend has also fired it on many occasion. I think he is referring to this specific markii not 22./45. However you know it is based on Luger which was a full 9mm gun so it might fail on your liking. However i would vouch it personally after owing many 22 handguns including P22, Star lancer, Erma & PPK.

    Yup! Rugar Mark II. Sorry, I forgot the model. That's why I didn't mention.

    Rugar Mark II is damn machine. It fired even 40 years old Eley ammo. This was the ammo which failed to break thoothi when fired from Brno Model I.

    Browning Buckmark belongs to Denovo87 (The Moderator) and it is also a fine machine.

    I have a Walther P22Q. it's shooting CSi mag, S&B without a single issue. Advantage is that S&B .22 ammo is available easily.

    I see. There isn't much that separates the MKII/MKIII and the 22/45 anyways, so which one do you prefer?

    Beretta's U22 Neos is also interesting, has anybody tried one?

    I also like the way S&W's Model 41 looks, but not sure if it's worth the $1500 they want for one...

    If you love 1911's then 22/45. We don't have many choices although

    Yeah that is a nice barrel. But the Tactical Solutions barrels for Buckmarks look pretty cool too...

    That's interesting, Hammerli never crossed my mind, thanks for bringing it up. I wonder if they have some models that look like "normal" guns... All the ones I've ever seen are full on target pistols.
