Looking for a .22 pistol
#1
What do the masses say? looking for a affordable/dependable .22 pistol for plinking and letting first time shooters use, looking to spend around $300

I like my M&P 22. I like the full size frame so you don't feel like you're holding a toy. The M&P line has great ergos, also.

The M&P22 is actually made by Walther.

I have a S&W 22A.

Accurate, dependable, and fun.

Only thing I don't like, is the sights.

I have a Ruger 22/45. It shoots great, but it is a pain in the ass to disassemble and reassemble. I might sell it and buy a .22lr converter for my 1911.

Stay away from the Sig Mosquito. It's quite a picky pistol when it comes to ammo.

At your price-point it's a trade-off.

You can go the Buckmark Hunter, Beretta Neos, Ruger (Mk series or 22/45) route and end up with something somewhat heavier, very accurate indeed, but quite different in look/feel than larger-caliber semi-automatic pistols.

Or you can go the Ruger SR22, Walther P22, Sig Mosquito route, and the operation and looks will be similar to those bigger semi-autos. (I didn't include the M&P, 1911's and conversions, since you said $300.) They're less accurate than the "target" pistols, much lighter, with lesser triggers, and a bit more felt recoil. But still great good fun. Of these, the Ruger is far and away the most well-turned out, being a newer design that learned from the others.

I have both a dead-nuts accurate Buckmark Hunter and a nice little SR22. Both are a lot of fun.

Ditto on the S&W 22... it's just difficult getting additional mags (It came with only one). I ordered only one additional 12 rounder when I first got it. Oh well.Shrug

Bought a used Sig and HATED that gun. Couldn't make it through a single mag without several FTFs.

Traded it in for a Ruger SR22 and LOVE it. Shoots GREAT.
