What one would you recommend for general use. Target shooting etc and easy to field strip
I'm going to recommend the Ruger Single Six Convertible. It is dead-nuts reliable, plenty accurate and comes in different barrel lengths. It is a single action six-shooter that also has an extra cyliner in 22 magnum as well as 22LR. It's like getting two guns for the price of one. Very simple to clean. Pull out the cylinder pin, remove the cylinder and get after it!
Thanks. Barrel length? Blue or stainless?
So far I really like the sr22
after putting about a case of ammo through a buckmark and i started having trigger reset issues that my gunsmith couldnt fix, at least couldnt long term fix, ive gone to the rugers and love them. it takes 3 hands to put a buckmark slide back together. i can put a ruger mk back together in under a minute. it just takes some practice.
or if you want a revolver old s&w k22's are BADASS! i would think the ruger .22 revolvers would be durable too. but the old s&w revolver triggers are NICE!
I prefer the BuckMark. Not sure why it would take three hands to take one down as mentioned above??
Outdoor Hub mobile, the outdoor information engine
i never found a good way to get the spring to stay down while attaching the top portion of the slide. some of the little components of the slide would always try to pop out. i got tired of messing with it.
I like the Ruger Mark series, but they aren't all that easy to field strip.
Okay, maybe a little finicky, but more accurate than you'd expect (I can make a soda can dance at 50 yards, every shot), and super SUPER fun.
You can still find older three screw models for a great price as well.
Ruger MK 3 or 4, Heavy.
I have a SW 22A that is pretty great.
Smith 41. Whole new world compared to Rugers and Brownings.
Smith41 or Sig Trailside
If you want a .22lr/.22WMR single action revolver, Bill Keith is spot-on. My mom handed down her 1971 Ruger Super Single Six convertible to me.
It's functioned flawlessly for 41 years.
If you're after a semi-auto .22lr, you can't go wrong with either a Ruger MKIII or a Browning Buckmark. My Ruger MKIII Standard, the least expensive in the lineup, hasn't failed me, and is surprisingly accurate in my hands.
If you want to sacrifice a little accuracy & gain ease of cleaning, take a look at a S&W M&P 22.
I have a Euger MKII with a 5.5" bull barrel that I bought in 85, it's been flawless. The bluing is mostly worn off now but it keeps going. These pistols are very accurate too.
I've shot the S&W autos and also the Buckmark and didn't like them.
best is a relative term.
semi-auto = SR22
wheelgun wise a H&R sportsman is the best shooting gun i own period and that includes rifles, ect...
S&W M 41 for trigger pull and accuracy - if you can get it to run. Mine jammed on every brand and type of ammo.
So I much prefer the CZ Kadets I've used. Their SA pulls are nice; they're reliable with various kinds of ammo; some of them are extraordinarily accurate; and they duplicate the MO, weight, size and ergonomics of my 9mm CZ 75's.
