I'm looking for a .22 Semi Auto pistol that looks like a normal hand gun.

Most of the .22 pistols I have seen look like they have long skinny barrels

Please post pictures :-D

Sig Sauer Mosquito (CCI minimag only)
Walther P22
Phoenix Arms HP22A

All on the list.

S&W 22A (may be too "target pistol;" for you.)

odd most .22lr handguns look to me like they have ridiculously overbuilt bull barrels. Are you referring to ones with centerfire style slides?

Check out the Sig Mosquito or the Walther P22. They're both less than $400 and don't look like a marksman .22 pistol.

you will be sorry if you buy one of the "cool" looking 22 pistols.

stick with the ruger or buckmark for reasonably priced pistol. s&w 41 if you have more to spend.

The ones that look cool work like crap.

The alien looking ones look alien.

Only real decent looking guns, actually function the best. Ruger and Browning

Definitely not normal by any means, but I like it!

For reliability and performance, you cannot go wrong with a Ruger MK II or MK III. I have a SS MKIII678 Hunter. It is my best shooting .22lr handgun.

CZ makes the Kadet conversion for the CZ-75, and I think they also sell it as a stand alone gun(probably not on roster though)

For something you can definitly get, Ruger 22/45, it definitly does not have a skinny barrel(it's bigger around than the barrel on my actual .45)

The Walther P22 will do fine as long as you feed it good ammo.

I'm using Federal Champion (bulk) on my Mosquito with no problem with ocassional ftf. I just fed the failing round again and it fires fine.

Really
I cant remember the last time I had a FTE or any other malfunction. My Kimber shoots as good if not better than my Ruger 22/45 and my friends Browning. Yes its not as inexpensive as a Ruger or Browning but I wouldnt give up my Kimber for anything.

I feel your pain. I wanted a cool looking 22, but after reading all of the reviews, I ended up with a 22/45. I am very happy with my decision and its look is actually starting to grow on me.

Sweet. These are pretty reasonably priced for Kimber quality. I just got Miranda, my sig in .40sw. Been eyeing the 22lr conversion for her.

Currently, I own a Mosquito (really not bad and fun to shoot with cheap bulk green box Remington) and a Neos. The Neos looks like a space-gun but it is well balanced and it comes ready to scope (I put a red dot Burris on mine). However, I am going to suggest something else...
Look around for a clean used Colt Woodsman or Targetsman, here is mine, made in '59:

Beautiful, graceful, accurate and no longer being made. It also doesn't hurt to have been made the same year as me ;)

Other than that, I would suggest a 22 upper for an existing handgun, if you have something that can accept one. One day, I plan on getting one for my Colt XSE.
