Smith and Wesson or Ruger. Can't go wrong with either. I'm more of a Ruger guy myself.

If you like single actions, you can not go wrong with ruger. They offer several revolvers in .22 caliber. The single six gives you the ability to shoot .22 lr or .22 mag with a simple switch of the cylinder. The ruger bearcat is a really nice small frame .22 revolver and the single ten is a great option if you only want a .22 lr. Several years back ruger came out with the single ten (.22 lr) and single nine (.22 mag) both of which were designed specific to each caliber. The single ten and single nine give you an increased capacity and supposedly superior accuracy to the single six since each revolver is designed specific to its caliber opposed to being interchangeable. I have never had anything but good experiences with the single six though and I don't think you will disappointed with any ruger revolver.

All true words, but the bearcat , at least in my hands, is not as accurate. Mine is an old model (1970). The blade and notch sight and short sight radius are not the best set up for accuracy. Some of the new bearcats are available with adjustable sights and I imagine that would be a help.

The bearcat is a great little kit gun, but if a guy is only going to have one .22 revolver, he would probably be better served with one of Rugers other fine revolvers.

I have a Ruger Single Six in stainless 22/22mag and a Colt Frontier Scout. They’re both outstanding guns.

Bought a Ruger Bearcat 1962 still have it. Shot a lot of squirrels with it in the 60 and early seventies.

If you want a single action work horse then go with the Ruger. Colt would be my second choice but they are more expensive and harder to find.

If you want a double action I'd recommend a S&W Model 63.

I know there are other manufactures of 22 revolvers but I'd stay away from anything that is not named S&W, Ruger or Colt.
