Important Notice: The site is currently being upgraded to a new software system. This process could take a day or two to complete. During that time, we are going to leave the site up here, on its old software. WHAT GETS POSTED HERE DURING THIS TRANSITION WILL NOT BE COPIED OVER ONTO THE NEW SITE, WHEN THE UPGRADE IS COMPLETE. When we swap over, the content posted while this message is visible will be lost. We wanted to give you folks a place to hang out and talk while we worked though. We will let you know when we are finished. Please pardon the inconvenience, during this transition.
The postings above will show you that there are only a few .22 pistols to stay away from. On the positive side, Ruger will give you the most versatility and dependability. There are plenty of parts and upgrades for Mark I, II, and III, and the 22/45. Pawn shops are a good place to find bargains (and overpriced guns-be sure to haggle). Feel the difference in the grip angle between the Marks and the 22/45- you have a choice. Want a particular barrel length? several to choose from in all those models.Want aftermarket grips, springs, etc? lots to choose from out there. My fun-gun is a MKII, 6 7/8 barrel, Hogue grip. For yourself, pick & choose until you are happy!
