  • .22 Target/Plinking Pistol Recommendations?

    Have recently decided to start looking into purchasing a .22 pistol for target/plinking/practice. Was hoping some members could point me in the right direction. Already have looked at the Smith and Wesson models as well as the Rugers, just curious on others thoughts/first hand experiences.

    You can't go wrong with a Ruger Single Six.
    I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

      My brother has a Ruger MK III that is a lot of fun to shoot.

        Ruger 22/45, Ruger MK series, Browning Buckmark (which I used to shoot competition with) and S&W/Tauraus .22 revolvers are good choices.

        S&W .22 autoloaders that I encountered, shot very well, but few people I used to shoot with had issues (fractured frames, feeding/ejecting issues). This was about 10 years ago, so I can't say how their qualities are now. To S&W's credit, they did the right thing by their customers by either fixing or replacing guns with issue.

          If you have a Glock, then you can use it. They make a .22 barrel and slide that interchanges with your Glock......

          Well maybe not, lol. I thought they did but ive looked and now i cant find that information.

            Ruger in one way or another. I've got an old Ruger Standard (pre Mark series) but basically the same thing- great gun. I've got a Ruer Bearcat- great gun. I've been wanting a mark III hunter for a while- that would be a squirrel slaying SOG. And been wanting a Ruger Single Six, cause I'm giving the Bearcat to the kid in a year or two. IMO Ruger all the way.

            I trust my life with J. M. Browning's design, the 1911.

              Browning Buckmark is an excellent gun for plinking. I have an Advantage Arms conversion for my Glock 26, but it is pickier about the ammo than the Browning. S&W 41 is also excellent, but very expensive IMHO.

                I couldn't agree more about the 41...with some of the other options out there i don't think i could rationalize spending over 1k on a firearm that wont see competition...so far i am leaning more towards the MKIII

                      Ruger MK ??? is a sweet ride. My brother purchased one couple years back and I haven't given it back yet. Hopefully he won't remember I have it by the time he goes looking for it.
                      This is for all you parents that like to put your kids names on the back of your mini-vans.

                      STOP IT! There are predators that will use that information against them!

                          The walther P22. I have shot at leastttttttttt 5000 rounds with maybe about 10 shooting problems with it while shooting an old box of Walmart blue package .22 ammo, and that was due to to non-firing ammo(tried with another .l22 with negative results with ammo as well).

                          Awsome gun with many additions available, such as suppressors, interchangable grips, and other attachments. You can also buy it in the standard 3.4" barrel(i have that) or the compensated 5" barrel. If you look in the first pic, you can see there is a small circle right above the trigger, that is a special key lock, its simple but effective secondary lock if you have small kids in the house.
