I'm just starting to build my handgun collection, and I'm to the point where I want to get a .22 lr semi-auto to plink with/shoot with beginners. I don't want to spend much over $300. My buddy has a Walther P22 that doesn't exactly make my socks go up and down. Then again, nothing compares to the Model 41 I grew up shooting:wow:. Alas, out of my price range. Any suggestions?

I have a Beretta U-22 Neos. It looks like its straight outta Buck Rogers...but shoots like a dream. One downside about it though is the lack of aftermarket parts for customization.

+1

You can find the Ruger Mark II, III, and Mark II and III 22/45's for that price range. All good.

I suggest the Mark II.

So far looks like it's between the Ruger MKII or MKIII, or the Browning. The Neos got good reviews but loses because it's so freaking ugly. I like the "look" of the Browning the best.

The P22 and mosquito are hit or miss. Some people like them, some people have nothing but problems with theirs...

I've got a P22, that was good for about the first 1000-1500 rounds. Now it doesn't work so great. I'll have at least 3 FTF/FTE per magazine now...

t8b5o4s1k
01-06-2010, 00:08
Thanks man, kinda leaning toward the sig. The p22 is just a little too small for my hand. I've heard there's problems with the sig out right out of the box (FTF). I'll be getting the p22 or mosquito within a couple weeks. All ready youtubed these two guns to death, figured i'd stop here for any last minute advice.

Any1 else with info, or better yet, any1 thats owed both, i'd really like your input.

Thanks

Sounds like you need a Ruger MkII :)

http://i392.photobucket.com/albums/pp4/brycemorgan452/P1020860.jpg

Not sure what these go for in the US, its a S&W 2206 and uses the same mags as the 41.

http://i392.photobucket.com/albums/pp4/brycemorgan452/P1020834.jpg

Its a great shooter, I think they make a light weight model with an alloy frame, the S&W 622 I think, might be something to look for.

t8b5o4s1k
01-06-2010, 19:57
That 622 looks pretty slick. Big gun for a .22 chambering, probaly really fun to shoot. Ruger mk III has last shot hold open right?

The one in the pic is actually my 2206 which is all stainless compared to the 622 which has an alloy frame. The extra weight makes the recoil almost non existent.
It's never hit me as being an overly large .22, its quite slim and fits my hand nicely.

If you want a big .22 though;

http://i392.photobucket.com/albums/pp4/brycemorgan452/P1030205.jpg
I picked up that S&W 41 only a couple weeks ago, I think I paid $300 or $350 for just the pistol with 7" inch barrel and another $200 for the other top end that has the compensator.


As far as I know the Ruger MKIII have last shot hold open, all mine are MKII's though.

RUGER MKIII

1) Magazine disconnect/release location and different magazines.

2) Magazine safety.

3) Loaded chamber indicator.

There is nothing major wrong with the Mark III, but I believe that you'd be much happier with the Mark II. If you go over to Rimfirecental.com and look up the Ruger rimfire forums you'll see that most of the guys that have the Mark III are modding it to be more like the Mark II. The reason is because the "improvements" to the gun actually hinder operation for some.

Don't get me wrong. I like the Mark III and have one that's tricked out, but if I knew the problems that are encountered with the Mark III's, I would have gotten a nice used Mark II first. Odds are that if you get a Mark II, you'll not have a problem, but read the Ruger rimfire forums before you make your decision.

Here's my Mark III that's pretty stock right after I got it:
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq15/deadite_photos/P9050001.jpg

I tricked it out to this:
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq15/deadite_photos/P7140006.jpg

I installed Volquartsen sear, trigger, extractor, etc., and I also installed a nice red-dot. I also installed a Majestic Arms Speed Strip to make the incredibly difficult Mark III disassembly much easier. This is a problem that you most likely won't have if you get the Mark II. They're so much easier to deal with.

Here's the Mark II I got to replace the Mark III:
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/qq15/deadite_photos/P8310014.jpg

I've tricked this one out, too, but I don't have shots of it yet. I installed Volquartsen extractor, sear, trigger, extended mag release, hammer bushing, had it drilled and tapped for a rail, and installed another red-dot on it. It's laser beam accurate. I got a handfull of mags and the Ultimate Cliploader to make it the perfect plinker.

I also have a Smith and Wesson Model 41, a Browning Challenger, and I used to have a Star Model FR-Sport. I'm a little into rimfires. :)

Btw, if you look around, you can find like-new Mark II's for less than new Mark III's and you'll find that they're more desireable at gunshows than the new models.

I have a Beretta Neos and I have shot 500 rounds through it this last week never a misfire. I put a 29 dollar red dot scope on it I gave $250.00 out the door It shots great a lot of bang for the buck.

glockman23
01-09-2010, 11:44
Yeah, I saw the neos used at the local gun mega-mart. They're actually not that ugly in person.

Handled a S&W 22A, didn't like the grip feel. They had a few MK III's that looked decent. Probably overpriced. No MKIIs. I didn't have much time to look around, I may go back in today. It would be nice to get a clerk that isn't a total a-hole and could actually answer some questions.

They did have a couple of old high-standards. They had a long barrel for $379 that I liked, but when I handled it the grip was loose:upeyes:.

The S&W 22A is very easy to disassembly/reassembly, the barrel comes off with the push of a button and also make this pistol a good choice for those "not mechanical inclined" or who canít comfortably handle other pistols like the Ruger MKII/III. I got rid of my 22A because one thing I didn't like is that the recoil spring is rather fragile, it bends very easy so you need to keep an spare one just in case it gets damaged. Also the pistol comes with two extra plastic recoil buffers in an envelope but you also need to keep few more of them because they wear out very quick specially if you shoot a lot. And the last thing I didn't like is the magazine release, is an odd spot, on the front of the grip, which seems like it could lead to unintentional ejection of the magazine.
I now own a MKII Std and MKIII Hunter I'm very happy with them, no problems at all...:supergrin:

The Sigs are very ammo sensitive. Many will run with only CCI Mini-mags. They're not made by Sig either.

$300 and under? That's easy, Ruger semi-auto. $300 will cover several brand new models, but I would suggest finding a MkII with the 6-7/8 tapered barrel or 5.5" bull barrel. They can easily be found in good condition, usually <$300. I just sold one for $275 shipped (after paying $290 FTF, doh).

Looks like you are getting some good advice here. I actually have many of the guns mentioned myself. Around here, a P22 is gonna bust a $300 budget new. I have one of the earliest ones and recently purchased one of the latest ones for my wife. LOTS of people have had bad luck with theirs. I have had great luck with mine. The keyed safety did cause me some problems initially, but I dealt with that and have had no problems since. They come with threaded barrels, interchangeable backstaps and are fun to shoot. My brother has a Mosquito. It is a very nice pistol, one that I want to love. I cannot, though, as it is so unreliable, and I hear too many other owners whose experiences mirror those of my brother. My dad fell in love with my 422 S&W. So, I gave it to him for father's day or something many years back. I went to the next gunshow to purchase another and ended up getting a deal on the (then) new 22A. I figured I would buy another 422 later. The 22A is a really good, accurate and reliable pistol, but I just cannot love it. Of course they quit making the 422 and they are a bit hard to find now. When I started teaching my wife to shoot, my dad let her try the 422, and of course, she fell in love with it, so I had to find another. One of my buddies has a Buckmark, it does exactly what it is supposed to do, it doesn't really get my blood pumping, though. I have no experience with the Neos, although I do have the Beretta 21A (I think thats the model) with the tip up barrel. Its pretty good. I tried a similar model by Taurus recently and it was pretty poor. What to buy if I could only have one? With no 422s available, and assuming that I wasn't being driven by a specific need for a particular feature or characteristic, I would be looking for something in the Ruger MK family. They are very natural pointing and very reliable and accurate. Probably the hardest choice for me would be whether or not to try one of the 22/45 versions or stay with the traditional one. I love the P22, and I am sure that there are plenty who feel just as strongly for the Mosquito, but, there are quite a few more dissatisfied owners of each of these than there are the Rugers, so Ruger it is.

Rugers are the crowd favorite, but I found the Buck Marks to be at least as accurate, durable and reliable. They also have better triggers and sights, and are much easier to maintain.

I've owned a P22 and put lots of rounds through the Neos and Sig Mosquito. None of these are even in the same league as a BM or Ruger.

Wow, I sorta can't believe it. Everything is a little over-priced there. Even if it was a Mark I lower, it would still be worth much more than what you paid for it. I'm assuming it didn't come with the original upper.

You are correct, No original upper, case, any extra mags, manual etc. What you see is what I got. Even at that I am still VERY happy. This is my first foray into optics, so I really have no idea what I have. All I know is that it shoots where I put the red thingy, lol.

What I do need though is a set of covers for the lenses, I am missing those and don't want to scratch the glass, Do you know of a good place to pick some up?

Probably Silver Bullet, Al and Bob's or, I bet, you could order a set from Match-Dot themselves.

Just so you know, Match-Dot is one of the best red-dots for this sort of platform.

You should be very happy with your find. I wasn't kidding about he $600-700 range.

Mark III, $350.00
Tac-Sol upper, $200-250

Thanks, I am excited. I was putting it at about $500 so I was close. The scope says Ultra-dot on it I am guessing Ultra dot = match dot? Sorry for all of the questions, this style of pistol is new to me.

My bad, I meant Ultra-Dot.

No prob on the questions. I dig talking about rimfires. :)

Curious, does it have an upgraded trigger and sear? I can't see the trigger in your pic.

Reason I ask is, I have a hard time believing that someone would upgrade the upper and not do something with the trigger and sear. If so, it would be worth even more. :)

Cool thanks. I would have had bought you lunch and a brew to show me how to take this thing down to do a detail cleaning but I got in over my head yesterday and had to figure it out on my own. Nothing like a trial by fire when you have a hand full of parts and pins in your hand. :whistling: I learned more about this little guy in two hours than I think I ever cared to. But, I enjoyed every second. Once you figure out what does what, it is actually a pretty simple design.

The lunch and brew are still available though just because.

Amen to that. I was about to run out into traffic the first time I disassembled mine. :) Now, it's easy.

Anyway, the Mark III is harder than the Mark II.

I cant tell, someone else on MGO mentioned it looked like a Vol. trigger but I don't think so. All I know is its hard to believe that it can shoot any better than it does now. Let me see if I can get a better picture.

Cool. Here's a picture of my Ruger Mark II with Volquartsen trigger to compare it to:

Even if it doesn't look like this, it could be a Clark Custom trigger, which is almost as good. You really don't need a V trigger, but it sure makes steady shooting easier.

I dont think it is, the trigger is serrated, not smooth like yours. Also, where it disappears into the frame is a slightly different shape.

Not sure, but it looks like it has an adjustment screw, so it's either homemade or a Clark Custom. Great find!

Here is a closer/ larger pic. It looks like a quality screw job not a home brew thing, so I am guessing its a clark based on what youre telling me.

It boils down to, you got a great deal. It probably has an updated sear, too.
