.22 revolver for plinking

What is a good INEXPENSIVE .22 revolver for plinking?

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

Re: .22 revolver for plinking

I've fired or had a bunch of these .22 revolvers. Can't get much better than the Ruger Single Six.

Re: .22 revolver for plinking

Heritage revolvers look good, although I don't own one. I have a Single Six along with 4 other .22 handguns. My favorite is my old H & R which I got 45 years ago. If I had a dollar for every round down the tube on that one would be going to Africa for a super safari.

Re: .22 revolver for plinking

I have a Heritage Rough Rider. It's a good gun for plinking, and only costs around $200. I take it to the range with a brick of bullets and my buddies and I take turns with it until we get bored with it. I have both cylinders for mine.

The single six is a much nicer gun, but typically cost around $450 new.

Re: .22 revolver for plinking

I've got 2 Ruger's, and enjoy them both. 1st. is the MarkIII Hunter with a 2X Weaver on it. So much fun to shoot and cheap. 2nd. is a single six with the 22mag. cyl. on it most times, and it's wearin a 2X Burris more fun for cheap money and great to hunt critter's with. Soon as I bust a chuck with it I'll post the story.....later

Maybe on a 22 but that improvement goes away quick when you hit heavier calibers. gotta set sitting in the safe that came on a 41 mag I bought. Changed them out quick before even firing the gun.

Re: .22 revolver for plinking

Just like the echoes in the previous post "The Ruger Single Six". Not only accurate target gun but and excellent gun for hunting. My favorite when I want to take a 22 with me for coon when I'm calling fox..
