Default Suggestion on a .22 Semi auto pistol

Hi to all fellow cal gunners, I am in the process of buying a .22 semi auto hand gun. Any suggestion or input is highly appreciated. So far, I like the sig mosquito and ruger sr22.

Thanks!

I've shot the Mosquito. AWESOME gun, fun to shoot. Looks good too!

Just bought a GSG 1911-22. Have not shot it yet, but read several good reviews. If you own any Glocks, you could always get the .22 slide/barrell for them.

The Mosquito and SR22 are copycats of the larger caliber cousins. I had a SR22, and the take down lever broke on it after a few hundred rounds. Fun thing to see the slide just shoot off the receiver after taking one shot. Got it fixed by Ruger, and then replaced with an aftermarket one, killing the warranty.

EDIT: Just to add, the reason why take down lever broke, I was using CCI Blazer and Velocitor ammo, and Ruger gave me a No-No on using those ammo.

Both pistols work, but if you want something that will last, get a Browning Buckmark, or a Ruger MKIII. And if you do get the Ruger, disable the magazine disconnect, makes the magazines easier to get in and out of the pistol.

Ruger Mark III is a great gun. Have 22a, mosquito, but really only shoot the Ruger.

Any of the Ruger Mark's is going to be a blast! I love my Standard! Eats anything and is a lot of fun to shoot.

i've been reading a lot of threads lately and have decided on the ruger mark III 22/45. turners in socal is taking orders for them and expected to be in in 2-4 weeks. here's a couple of videos, one was posted by a member in another thread comparing the mark III 22/45 to to the SR22;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QUJXkGgUbA

and if you haven't discovered hickok45 on youtube, you're in for a real treat. i've been watching a lot of his glock videos lately. here's one where he reviews the SR22;

good luck!

In order of preference:

1. M&P22
2. SR22

The rest are not as great IMO.

Benelli MP95 Atlanta. Precision shooter, reliable, very weird looking. Love mine and just got one for my wife. Try Larrys Guns in Maine. Only problem is that it's hard to find the 8-round magazines for them lately.

Just got the Ruger SR22 and love it. Put 500 plus rounds through it the other day without a problem. Also like the Walther P22 and Ruger markII Target, both good solid guns. The Walther is a little picky when it comes to ammo.

I love my Ruger MK II Comp, a little picky on ammo, but accurate as hell.

I have the Ruger 22/45 bull barrel and have had zero problems with it. A great little 22 and I find it highly accurate. You will not be disappointed!

I have the Ruger MKIII with the 5.5" bull barrel and the SR 22. Both are great guns and are fun to shoot.

i love my issc m22. its a glock clone, so much so that glock tried to sue them for copying pretty much everything. its a great gun, super accurate. i fed it about 500 rounds of cci stingers and now it'll eat just about everything but american eagle.

If you have the cash pick up a sig 226 and get the conversion.
I just bought a 226 stainless with the conversion and love it.
No problems at all. Eats everything just keep it clean.

I'd go with a gun proven to last. Either a Ruger MKIII or a Buckmark. If you want to go used, you can't go wrong with a S&W41 (around $1000), any Ruger MK I or MK II, any Browning, Any High Standard, Any Colt, Any AMT, etc. The Mosquito, S&W22, Walther P22, Berretta Neos, etc. do NOT hold up to long term use as proven by ranges that rent guns.

Seen a lot of members he's saying that they had problems with their Sig Mosquitos with feeding. And members selling them in the market place here.

The Ruger and Browning models sound good. The Ruger would be my choice.

i'm the 2nd owner of an ISSC M22 pistol. it's got maybe 10000 rounds through it and keeps going. prefers CCI mini mags and stingers. If you cali peeps can get them out there, i recommend them. fits my glock 19 holster nicely.

SW model 22A or Ruger MK111 should be a good choice

Love my Ruger MKIIs and Beretta Jaguar, had a SW41 but too nice to shoot . The revolvers are great as well, especially the SW 617 with 10rnd speed loaders.

Another vote for the Ruger. I've had a Mk II 5 1/2" bull bbl for at least 20 years, and countless tens of thousands of rounds without a hiccup I can remember. Maybe after a long session it got a little sticky due to excessive crud build up. It goes to the range just about every single trip and has been used to teach at least 8 new shooters.

I'm considering a Mk III so I can use it for some rimfire matches (the Mk II mag catch is slow), but I will never sell the Mk II and it will go from my bullseye gun to my plinker when I can find a Mk III at the right price point.

You would be well served with any of the Ruger (Mark II or III, etc) series or one of the many incarnations of the Browning Buckmark. They have decades of proven workmanship and reliability behind them, and really have set the benchmark for what a .22 pistol should be.
