the only bad thing I've ever heard about them is that they are a pain to strip and clean. Aside from that people swear by them. I was going to pick one up but I got an awesome deal on a beretta neos in the marketplace here so I got that instead.

That's a fine choice. But if reliability is what your after, most 22's will become reliable after an initial break in period. Sometimes it may take 1000 rounds, but eventually they all come around. Even my Walther P22 is 100% reliable, but it took some time to get there.

I have two MkIII 22/45's with the 4" heavy bbl. Both shoot very well and love CCI ammo. Don't know about the 5 1/2" though. They are a pain to take apart/reassemble but that can be fixed by removing the mag disconnector. CHeck out rimfire central . com
