Which .22 will mimic my PM9 for cheap practice

I grew up shooting single action triggers, so I'm having trouble getting used to the trigger on my PM9. I know that lots of practice with the PM9 will tighten my groups, but I'm wondering if there's a .22 I could use that has a similar trigger to the PM9 so I can do more practice at a reduced cost. My guess is that a revolver might be just the ticket to get me used to the Kahr trigger, but if there is an auto-loader that is of similar size and trigger action, that would be even better.

What say you?

Thanks,
Ed

I'd avoid the Ruger Mark III because I think it's too hard to clean - when I had one, it always took me at least two hours just to get the derned thing back together. I realize you asked about semiautomagical guns, but I'm thinking that a S&W model 63 revolver is going to be the right weight and trigger pull for your practice needs, and it's a lot of fun to shoot, too.

I wouldn't much care for a .22 with a trigger like the Kahr. It's made for self-defense; a .22 with a similar trigger pull won't really be good for plinking or self-defense. A DA S&W isn't going to have the same trigger pull. Why not just spend the money on $10.00 9mm ammo at Wal-Mart? An S&W is going to cost the equivalent of 2000 to 2500 rounds. (Unless you just want a .22)

Yes, that makes sense, plus it would be practicing on the actual gun I want to carry. But, after the dollar equivalent amount of ammo that a .22 pistol would cost is shot up, the money is gone and all I have to show for it is the practice. Not a bad thing, but with buying a .22 I would still have something of (hopefully) increasing value to show for my expenditure.

I haven't been able to find any .22 DAO auto-loaders that fit the bill, so I guess a revolver would have to do.

Question is which .22 would have a trigger pull similar to the Kahr. I grew up shooting S/A triggers, so I want to re-train my muscle memory for shooting the Kahr.

I owned one of these back in the 1980's. If memory serves, it was double action on first shot then single action on subsequent shots. Isn't that right?

What I want is something with a similar trigger to the Kahr.

Sorry, wasn't thinking about the followup shot. First shot is pretty close though, long smooth trigger pull.

I never had a problem, but then again I follow the instructions and hints. I've owned one from each generation.


I think the closest to a Kahr is going to be a glock subcompact with an AA .22lr conversion kit.

Yes, Kahr is probably missing out on a lot of sales by not making a PM22

Wagonm,
I'm sorry it was a joke, I was referring to the conversion manufactures only catering to the 1911 & Glock crowd.

Sorry for the anxiety attack.

Jim
