SW M41's are okay! I prefer the medalist or maybe a challenger.

I've put thousands of rounds through my Ruger (MkII, blued, 5-1/2" bull barrel), without any modifications other than some red loctite on the front sight screw as it seemed to repeatedly back out.

I can't recall any ammo it didn't digest without a hiccup.
Accuracy is holding very steady (bad shots have been me, not the gun).
It's still going strong and, I assume, will for a while.

I don't have much experience with most of the other models. I have a Beretta 87 (Cheetah, not target). It's a sexy gun, fun to shoot, but with the short barrel it is NOT a target pistol. Also, it costs $$$ compared to Ruger.

Hope this helps and good luck on the purchase.

I have loved my MKII Bull Barre as well. They are great starters.

thanks every one!! If you know of any one who could possibly help out in my quest for a nice target shooter would you please let me know. because i have my first warm-up match in a couple of weeks and i really prefer not to have to use my .22lr contender for rapid fire(if ya know what i mean) but it works great for the squirrels..

I have a High Standard Supermatic sumpthin' or other with 3 barrels. Feels great, adjustable trigger and excellent grip. You can usually find them in CA even thought they're not listed.

I think there is an exemption for some High Standards that allows them to be sold here even though they are not rostered.

HIGH STANDARD MILITARY TROPHY .22 LR
HIGH STANDARD MILITARY VICTOR .22 LR
HIGH STANDARD SHARPSHOOTER .22 LR
HIGH STANDARD OLYMPIC ISU .22 Short
HIGH STANDARD OLYMPIC ISU MILITARY .22 LR

Those are competition pistols. I'm pretty sure you need to show that are to be used for actual professional competition if you want to "import" one.

BTW: The higher end Target pistols are more ergonomics of Olympic shooting. Alot of other guns with the proper barrel can be just as accurate.

Just my $0.02

I have a Ruger MKIII Target 5 1/2 Bull Barrel and really enjoy shooting it. I,m sure it,s more accurate than I am but I just shoot for fun mostly.Whenever I go shooting and no matter what else I take it always goes also.:)

I have seen people shoot clean Bullseye slow fire stages (10 shots in the 10 ring) with Buckmarks, Ruger MKIII, and Smith 41 pistols. Out of the box with the right ammo, these pistols have more inherent accuracy than most shooters are capable of.

If the Smith 41 is in your price range, you might want to go looking for one of the European pistols mentioned in another post, used.

I've retired my Colt Woodsman Match Target 2nd gen. and East Hartford High Standard Victor in favor of a Marvel .22 Conversion on a 1911 frame. The Marvel will outshoot any pistol that I own.

If you can find one the Sig Trailside (target model) is worth the money. I've had one since the first issue and love it. Won several matches, never a hick-up w/ ammo and a breeze to clean.
Have a Ruger MKIII 5.5 SS bull on the self for sale.
$440.00 + tax & DROS

Iused to shoot S&W model 41 for the international standard pistol matches in 80's. It is a very capable pistol. I switched to Walther GSP later in my conpetition years. I believe Rugers are nice also if it is tuned a little.

Most of the guns listed will shoot better than 99% of the shooters on this site. Not dissin anyone just sayin. My 41 gives me higher scores than both my MKII's. fit is a big difference and sight picture. Guys in a bulls-eye league I shoot score 598-600 with both the Ruger and the 41. So mostly its the shooter with these guns.

I recommend either one of these two pistols for .22 target shooting: (1) Ruger Mark II, 6 7/8 in. Bull Barrel Gov't. Target Model and (2) Smith & Wesson 22A, 7 inch barrel. I've put at thousands of rounds on the Mark II and hundreds of rounds on the S&W. I took out both pistols to see which one will outshoot the other; 3 silhouette targets, 2 mags of 10 rounds, 40 rounds per target, distance of 17 yards or just shy of 50 feet, TARGET CONCENTRATION of 20 head shots and 20 center mass per target. Accuracy Results: 3 inch group for each, head shots & center mass. For pics, email me at classof77tulisan@yahoo.
