.22 Semi-Auto Pistols

What do you guys reccomend in a decent .22 semi-auto pistol? I have heard the cheaper ones jam unless you use only high powered rounds?

Re: .22 Semi-Auto Pistols

a .22 semi pistol is nothing to skimp on. every cheap one i shot i wanted to toss in the river after a few minutes.

the walther is a pretty good one.

Re: .22 Semi-Auto Pistols

I have an older Ruger Mark II semi.22 The thing is a blast to shoot.That pistol has performed flawlessly over the years.It will shoot anything.

Yep. The Ruger is a really good gun. I've shot them, and know quite a few people that have them that love them. They come in many different versions to choose from too.

I have a Ruger Mark II with bull barrel. It is a joy to shoot and never lets me down.

Re: .22 Semi-Auto Pistols

Another vote for Ruger Mark II. I have one, and I've shot a few of my uncle's, no problems with any of them. I also like that they have a good feel and weight to them, even for a 22.

Another vote for the Mark II. I also have the bull barrel and it is a lot of fun to shoot and extremely dependable. My wife is not a big fan of guns but even she had fun when I had her shooting targets.

Re: .22 Semi-Auto Pistols

You know, I was lookingat that pistol on the Ruger site last night and would probably go for the standard 4 3/4" barrel model or the 5" bull barrel model. I`ll check out the Walther also.

Thanks-Jack

Re: .22 Semi-Auto Pistols

You can't go wrong with either a Ruger or a Browning. As far as used guns go, if you can find an old High Standard they are great guns too. As far as what you'll be using it for there are other considerations. If you just want one for plinking any of the above will work. If you want to get into target shooting then the Browning will be better then the Ruger. The Browning's come out of the box tack drivers, the Ruger's need some customizing to be equal to the Browning. Unless you pay the big bucks for the high end Ruger with the flutted barrel.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
