Right now I am thinking about either the Taurus 94 or Charter Arms Pathinder.

I heard the pathfinder has a some what better trigger.
And I like that the 94 holds a few more rounds.

What do you think? Or do you have any other suggestions?


EDIT: Is their any Single Action 22's for under $200?

What do you want to do with it? Just a plinker? Maybe some hunting? Camp gun?

I'd look around for a used Single Six in good shape at a good price, in fact, that is what I have been doing. If it's between the two you listed, my natural instinct is to buy the one that does not say "Taurus" on it.

Mainly as a plinker. Im guessing they all a Single Six that for SA. Do any come in DA/SA?

If I read that right, you are correct the Single Six is SA only. If you want DA/SA maybe check out the Sp101 .22 version. I have not had a chance to fire one yet but they seem like nice revolvers. I am in the market as well, and while I would love a S&W 617 I simply can not afford one. I'm trying to find some middle ground between the Smiths and the dumpster fire that is Taurus.

That seems awesome, but more then I can spend right now. Is there any thing else that you can think of for under $300?

Neither. Look into the Ruger SP101 in .22 lr.

If you have the funds, the S&W 617 is the best .22 revolver on the market.

The Taurus 94 isn't a bad gun. I can't speak for the Charter Arms.
I have approx 750 through my taurus 94, it is a solid reliable accurate shooter.
The DA trigger is heavier than a comparable S&W revolver ( I have one of those, too), but lightens a bit with use.
With Taurus revolvers, quality varies from one sample to the next, but if you inspect before buying and choose a properly built gun, it will be fine.

yah, i didn't remember how much they were asking, thought it was less. You can find em around 5 bills though, probably less if you look. The only other ones I know of sub 300 are Heritage Rough Riders, and other guns that are basically, Rough riders with a different name. They work for what they are, but maybe not what you are looking for.

I hear Ruger is doing the LCR in .22 for some reason, but I know nothing about it.

The heritage is cool for the price, just don't expect a 617 when you get it. For the money they are fun, and they work reliably from what I have seen.

If I could only have one .22 it would be the 617 without question. And in .22s I like revolvers more than pistols. That said, with current prices I think 300 would probably get a much better .22 pistol than it would a .22 revolver.

I have a couple of Heritage Rough Riders.

They are reliable, accurate and fun.

They aren't a Single Six, and the price reflects that, but if you want functional, they will do.

I just bought a Model 617-2. I chose it over a Model 18 that was priced $100 more.

The Model 18 is prettier, but I think the 617-2 is a better gun.

Try out the trigger pull on the Taurus before you make the purchase. It's godawful.

For under $300, find a used Taurus M96. It's like the cheaper version of the SW M17. Trigger pull is much better than the current Tauruses, though accuracy is only blah. Fit & finish is OK. Like I said earlier, it's the cheaper version of the SW M17.

I was going to suggest a used J-frame SW in .22LR, but I think those are a lot more than $300.
