Default Recommend a 22LR Semi Auto Pistol?

Advertise Here

I'm looking to add a good quality 22LR pistol to my collection.

No safe queen but a good plinking fun to shoot semi auto pistol. Something that will handle a day out on the range, blowing away the cans...

Reliability is important. Id rather be shooting it than clearing stovepipes all

What would you recommend?

Rugers are excellent, but I bought my wife a Walther P22 when she was first getting into semi-autos.
I got it because the price was right and I thought it was a good-looking gun. It turns out that it's accurate and reliable (so long as you don't feed it Federal ammo). You can get a brand new one at a gun show for just under $300, and I've seen used ones for a little less.

I bought the Ruger Mark III 22 (in the "45" style) with a 5' barrel. $225 new from Davidson's (on-line). It's a very accurate pistol. I do stay away from really cheap ammo with it, but it works flawlessly with CCI. There are a couple of tricks to reassembly after a thorough cleaning, but there are also a couple of good guides to doing this on the web.

Walther P22

Ruger has worked to undermine your second amendment rights, especially during the Clinton era. I'm not keen on sending them any of my hard earned $$$.

I own and love my Beretta U22 NEO Target/Plinking 22lr, it has a 6" Barrel and a 10 Shot Mag and came with two mags. Out the door with all the tax and fees it set me back $225.00.
It's a great little gun to shoot, it looks funny. But it's a fun gun to own.
Being ready is a choice.
Getting ready is a way of life.

Ruger MKIII is great, Browning Buckmark is great and even the little Beretta 21A that I have is great (only time it stovepiped was 2 times with the first magazine fired). I would get a 10/22 rifle or a nice bolt action to go with the pistol too.

I have pounded out several thousand rounds from my Walther P 22 without a problem. I just love it.

The Rugers are great .22s. I've got my grandpa's High Standard Duramatic, and it's a great little .22 semi-auto. So far, it eats anything I feed it without a problem.

More on Ruger:

And Bill Ruger has been quoted as saying:
* "No honest man needs more than 10 rounds in any gun."
* "I never meant for simple civilians to have my 20 or 30 round magazines or my folding stock."
* "I see nothing wrong with waiting periods."
