22lr plinker pistols

any opinions of what is a good plinker. I'm considering getting one because I can. Didn't want to break the bank.

I'm highly interested in the Sig Sauer Mosquito and the Walter P22 since they are basically 22lr versions of their 9mm brothers. I've seen the bad function of the first run of the P22, but also heard that the newer ones are much better.

I'd also be interested in a 1911 style but those have been bank breakers that I've seen...but I've only really seen the kimber.

llama spit - that is all.

I love my Beretta U22 6" barrel. Super accurate.

Don't get the Sig Mosquito. Do some research on it, and you'll find it's not really a Sig, and is plagued with issues.

Just get a Ruger 22/45 and be happy.

I'm looking into this right now. I shot Tony's Ruger MKI and liked it. Everwhere I read said get it. I'm looking at the MKIII Hunter in stainless, unless I can find a MKII in stainless.

I dont think Ive ever read a review saying get the III over the II.
What are you doing with it Stevo? Since its the hunter - can I assume we'll be sharing the woods together soon?

I'm going to hunt humans, so I'm sure I'll see you in the woods.

It will be mostly a target gun, although we do a little small game shooting in northern Michigan.

Do any stores still sell the mkII? anywhere online sell them?

No you didn't, you shot my browning. I didn't bring the ruger out cause it jams all the time.

Break the bank, wanted to stay at max 350-ish willing to be flexible for the right piece....I'm okay with used if I can find something in good condition.

I have been told the MK3 from ruger is tits...but the looks are meh..and I know what I like in a grip and that one I don't think I'll like. But I'll give it a hold and see what happens.

A Ruger that jams? WTF did you do to it? They don't jam.

The Ruger is a super accurate pistol. I have the MK II gov bull barrel version. But is is THE worst gun the the world to break down and clean. So much that I rarely shoot mine anymore.

the sig and the walther suck. In the price range your in the Ruger is the best buy with tons of aftermarket. Go used, the loaded chamber indicator models suck. Also a nice browning is ok and in the sub $300 catagory look at S&W

Arrogance has to be earned.

Mine is a mark I, according to the serial number I believe it was made in the late 60's (ponch could probably tell me the name of the worker who made it and if he had a hangover that day, right off the top of his head). It's got a few years on it but is in great shape, but yes it does jam a bit.


To anyone looking at a ruger mark series, they are excellent guns, but man are they a major pain in the ass to field strip for cleaning. I like the guns a lot, but I'll never buy another one for that reason. hence I went browning instead.
