    .22 Pistol Required

    I have suddenly become interested in purchasing a .22 pistol. Maybe its becos I have most other calibers but never this.
    Can anyone guide me to the best choice and where to get it. Also, price idea would be a great help.

    Walther p22 are commonly available and good plunking gun. If you can find Ruger mark iii or browining buckmark, they are excellent handguns. I like my ruger a lot than p22.

    @ahmad thank you for the reply. Walther has some negative reviews and I got put off. You are right, I would also prefer Ruger or Browning. Can you advice price range and place to get them.

    I have a Walther p22Q & it's lot better than the old one.

    I have used all types of ammo through it, subsonic to hyper sonic & it nom's all.

    I would suggest a ruger mark iii, I have shot my early competitions with it and I have found it to be above other .22 pistol known brands.

    Real Sigs go north of 3.5Lacs if you can find them. I have seen options from Walther in that caliber at somewhat reasonable prices when compared to Sig/glock prices. The caliber choice is good because of lower noise and recoil which is easier for newer shooters or long shooting sessions and it also helps in solidifying your fundamentals (less flinching). With good luck you can even attract the fairer sex into liking plinking with a .22 LR weapon which makes the session all the more enjoyable.

    Thanks for your response. As a matter of fact I'm offered a sig mosquito in mint condition for Rs.85,000/- from a dealer. Initially even I was surprised. However if you buy this weapon in the US its costs roughly around $350/- and thats almost half of what you pay here due to restriction on imports. I like your feedback on caliber choice as im totally bored of 9mm and want to switch over to something thats light and fun to shoot with at pepsi bottles. More feedback will be appreciated from experienced members
    Thanks!!!

    I know of someone who got a Sig mosquito for around 50k or so. the issue wiht hte mosquito is that the slides are prone to breaking. Hard to believe that a sig would behave this way.. But unfortunately, it has been known to happen. Apart from that, they suffer from their fair share of FTF and FTE issues. In fact more than many other .22lr guns out there.

    My personal favorite .22 is the Beretta M71. Are they available in Pakistan? They are very reliable with every brand, velocity, and bullet weight I have tried.
    Most .22s are picky with ammo, and they will jam until you find the ammunition they like best. Always test your new .22 pistol with every brand of .22 ammo you can find, one is sure to be an accuracy and reliability winner.

    CZ-75 Kadet is the bet to avoid ammo sensitivity..

    Salam All,
    -The best out there is the Ruger whether it be a MKii or iii or the latest iv. They will eat anything handsdown.
    -Below that I found the Browning Buckmark to be just as accurate and reliable. Though it has limited accessory options.
    -Now If you can find (there are some around in Pakistan) S&W model 41... well thats legendary.
    -CZ Kadet - a rimfire CZ75, very very good performer with a modern look, accurate (adj sights), feels right, will be cheaper than (should be cheaper than) Ruger or Brownings. Amazing piece.
    -Walther P22s, I get mixed reactions from people but I never had mine fail and used to even carry it most of the time. It was ammo sensitive on the s&b rounds but ate up everything else. I used to clean it only after the lead used to get onto my hands meaning it was caked on after too much firing. I never oiled it unless it was after cleaning.
    -Sig Mosquitos - great feeling guns, bought one ages ago when they first hit the market. Was very very disappointed. as there were too many ftfs even after going through many ammo variations. Returned it... few years later bought another... again disappointed as the same problem kept occurring. So I returned it and never looked back on it.
    Also if you can locate Advantage Arms .22 kits for Glocks - they are also a good deal.
    Well, that was my input.

    Sig uses cheap zinc alloy in their slides
