Looking to buy a semi 22lr

Want to buy a Semi auto 22lr rifle and pistol for plinking and shooting practice. What in your opnion would be a good buy?(Rifle -Ruger 10-22, S&W M&P 15-22, etc and pistol Ruger MKII, MKIII, Buckmark). As far as price is concerned, I am looking more at a good 22 that is easy to take apart and clean.

Ruger 10/22: cheap, tons of aftermarket parts, easy to take down and clean

There are many other great semi-auto .22 manufactures out there, but I have more experience with the Ruger.

Good Luck,
KILLERtj

You can't go wrong with a Ruger 22/45 MKII.

Agreed. The 5.5" stainless model is pretty common, and is a great pistol. Add a Clark hammer bushing and sear pin, Volquartsen trigger and sear, and it will have a nice 2# trigger that is clean and crisp.

The MkIII's are too much hassle.

Here is mine

The stainless 22/45 was my first pistol, its had over 40k rounds through it and still works as well as the day I bought it. Its also never had a replacement part.

I ended up with a blued one as well

I would also suggest a Ruger 10/22 in a rifle & a Ruger MKII in a pistol..
Can't hardly go wrong with them & well priced..

Hard to go wrong with a 10/22 but I really like my S&W 15-22. Everyone in the family wants to shoot the 15-22 so the 10/22 ends up staying in the safe.

I have had a 22/45 for years, and is has been nothing but reliable.
It's not a MKIII btw.

I also have a new MKIII, that is kind of turning me off from Rugers.
It has been nothing but a nightmare from the beginning.
I finally believe I have all the bugs worked out if it, but your average shooter would have sold it off within a week of buying it.

I met a gal at the range today that just bought new 22/45 6-7/8" Hunter, MkIII. It wouldn't chamber a round from the mag that came with it. Tried one of my mags; bang bang bang.

Ruger's QC seems to be questionable as of late. My 22/45RP has been perfect, but if there was an issue I could fix it.

Keep your eye out for a Hi-Standard

Mine will feed and fire everything. Literally everything I've put through it without a hiccup (other than a few fail to fire from bulk packs). Which seems rare with .22LR. Great trigger. Mine had been fired enough to wear the sear down to the point where it needed replacing.

I recently also picked up a Ruger MK III Hunter thats fed at least 250 rounds of CCI Mini Mags,Aquila Hypervelocitor and CCI Stingers without a malfunction from either mag that came with it.Mine just runs.I hear there are a few problems with them but I luckily must have gotten a good one.

Have a couple of 10/22s. They are the most reliable rimfire rifle IMO. Shot a gazillion rounds through them with absolutely no problems.

Rifle- Ruger 10/22 unless you want a bolt action then Marlin or CZ.
Pistol-Ruger Single Six Hunter

I've had a lot of problems with the Ruger Mk 1, 2 and 3.
Don't trust em, won't bother with em ever again.

pmwglock19- As far as a semi-auto .22lr pistol, I do not own one. I have shot many Ruger Mark II's, III's and High Standard pistols. They seem to be pretty reliable, but I'm a .22lr revolver fan. If your looking for a bolt action .22lr, I would highly recommend a CZ-452.

Good Luck,
KILLERtj

Four out of four magazines in my gun would hit the casing on the way to the ejector. I have recut two of the so far.

I had no problems today with it.

I have a Hamden 107 Supermatic Citation. It is a damn fine pistol, better than most in it's class.

I have twenty-three 22/45 mags, and five 22/45's (well that will be +2 mags, +1 gun this time next week). With the mag disconnect properly disposed of, all the mags work in all the guns. No issues, no mods to any of the mags other than thousands of rounds of ammo.

I have a 10/22 and a 15-22. Both are great guns and you will be happy with either.

The ruger has tons of aftermarket support and many configurations are possible, from tactical, to benchrest, to squirrel killer. The 15-22 also has tons of aftermarket possibilities since most any AR goody can be hung on it.

The 15-22 has a higher stock capacity. The ruger is pretty picky with aftermarket mags. The ruger is almost half the cost so that could be a big factor.

I only have one .22 pistol and it's a hand me down Browning Buckmark. I got it from my dad, and I love it. Don't really have any experience with any others.

Rifles: Ruger 10/22 or Marlin Model 60. Out of the box the Marlin is all over the 10/22, but a nice Green mountain barrel added to the 10/22 then you have a heck of a shooter.

Pistol: Browning Buckmark hands down. Not a big fan of the Ruger Mark series.
