I want a p22

for me and the wife.


something small that she can shoot.

I like the swappable backstrap so we can use the smaller one for her hands.


and then I can shoot a bazillion .22 compared to the cost of larger calibers.





Thoughts?

I have a friend who has one, neat little gun, about as accurate as shooting spitballs through a straw.

Anything more than about 15 feet and you may as well have a slingshot because those rounds are going EVERYWHERE. Would be neat if you got a supressor but since that's a "no- no" in Illinois, save your hard earned for a Beretta Neos or something that will actually shoot where you point the thing.

BTW, I'm getting another .22LR in the next week or so, I'll let you know how that turns out.

Yeah, not too accurate. I have one that I'd sell.

Special edition package, extra barrel, compensator and mount with red dot.

You saw how accurate the 22/45 I let you shoot is. That is also built to work like a 1911. If you want I will let it go for a good price. Make an offer.

Sig Hammerli Trailside if you don't mind a very accurate Swiss designed .22 with an almost non-existent customer service and impossible to find and expensive (plastic) magazines. Sorta wish I would have known Sig doesn't service them anymore before I bought it.

It may fit the same holster that mark II fits. I have seen them before.

Who aside from the Mossad needs a holster for a .22?
+1 on the P22 being a POS.
+1000 on a Ruger MarkIII
I've had a Mark II Target with Hogue grips for about a decade. It never fails to impress me. Ruger's are uber accurate and reliable. Cleaning is a little bit of a pain. I'm adding a HiViz front site to it right now. Most of the Mark IIIs are coming with it standard. The Mark III Hunter looks very nice. Great little weapon.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I own a ruger, they are great guns, my only issue with them is the incredibly tedious tear down procedure, for that reason I never shoot my ruger as I dont want to clean it.

The buckmark has made me a very happy man, it eats up the cheap ammo if you want it to (although I use CCI green), performs flawlessly with excellent accuracy, and clean up is a breeze. Also I love the shape of the wood grips, they feel perfect in the hand. the only thing i want to do is a trigger job to lighten up the pull a bit, but thats every gun.

Yeah that rotation to lock in the main spring takes all of three seconds.

What are the differences between the Mark II and Mark III? I had heard the II was more desirable but I can't recall why.

Mark II is older. The major differences are the mag release, round in chamber indicator,a magazine safety (It prevents firing without the mag) a built in key lock and standard HiViz sights. Mostly useless shit.

+1 on Browning Buckmark, easy to teardown, never had a single jam or failure that was actually caused by the gun (of course rimfire's aren't 100% reliable) and definitely more accurate than I am.
