Need advice on .22 pistol.

I'm in the market for a .22 pistol for my little girl. I would like to stay in the $250.00 range. Any suggestions?

Ruger mk or a Browning buckmark.

Will probably need to go with a used one to make your price point.

Your price range is going to be a little tough, you may have to go up another hundred.

I recommend the Ruger SR22 or Walther P22. I have both and take them to the range often for youngsters to shoot due to their size and ease of use.

I would recommend a Browning Buckmark, mine has been fantastic in the 13-14 years I've owned it.

I love my Ruger MkIII
It will cost a bit more, but it should be the last .22
you need to buy. This is a gun she can use now and when she is older.

I bought a used 22/45 11 years ago for $225. Put thousands of rounds through it and never fully stripped it to clean. Just swabbed the barrel and lubed the action. Never had a problem. I like the control configuration better than the Mark series. Great gun.

Get a used Ruger Mark series pistol.

Stay away from the pot metal and plastic stuff like the Walther P22 or Sig Mosquito.

I will also say a Ruger MK pistol.
They have been around for many a decade and with millions of the out there. Buying a used one in good shape should prove no problem.

They tend to work stock, but are hugely upgradeable.


I can't speak for the pot metal crap on the market. Nor really any for the polymer guns. I do know that my Brother in Law has a P22 that's a piece of unreliable junk with a super heavy trigger pull.

I'm gonna say Ruger SR-22 and here's why;

It's designed more closely to resemble a bigger caliber semi auto. Likewise, it breaks down more like one. This is much more simple than the traditional Mk .22's... This can also be great for beginners, especially if you are going to also tech them how to clean the gun. The slide and overall construction is also much better than similar .22 pistols, like the Walther and Sig.

The Mk series are more accurate and beefy, but also complicated. The SR-22 is worth a look.

Good points here. My grandkids love my sr22. The mark2 just seems a little heavy for them. YMMV.

+1 on the Buckmark. Taught my then-10-year-old on mine and it is still her favorite. Introduced a friend and his 11 year old daughter to it and she liked it so much that she got one as last Year's Christmas present.

SR22 for all the reasons mentioned above. Great for kids, women and grandpas. You won't be disappointed.

Get a Browning Buck Mark and it'll last forever, literally. Mine is 20 years old and is in great shape.

How old is the kid? A Beretta 21a is really well made, light and pretty unintimidating. Has the user-friendly pop-up barrel too.

Is she into horses? The cowgirl in her might fancy a Heritage Rough Rider.

I've seen both right at $250 used.

Daughter with a Buckmark. Has the Buckmark red dot sight. However, as I was writing this post, she looked over my shoulder and said "but i like your Glock more, now". That's my girl

A Ruger Bearcat is also a great .22 revolver for those with dainty hands.
