    I've got the itch to get a new 22lr pistol/revolver. I've already got two Ruger MkII so let's leave those, Ruger, out of the discussion.

    What would you get at a price cap of say $800?

    Also, try to give some info on your choice if possible.

    Thanks

    I have a Colt 1911 22lr. it was made in 1972. if you can find one it will be worth it, its the best 22 pistol i have ever owned.

    Do you ever take new shooters out for their trip to the range?

    For that, I like a good double action revolver. The one I use the most is a S&W K-22

    For new off the shelf, the S&W model 617 is the same gun in stainless steel, with a 10 shot cylinder vs. the 6 shot of mine.

    Get one - you'll love it.

    Take care,
    Bob S.

    You can find a used Smith and Wesson Model 41 for that price. Here's mine that I got for $700.00. It was made in 1978 and has the 5" heavy barrel and the cocking indicator. It's an "A" Prefix.

    I also scored a nice Belgian Browning Challenger that is one of my favorites. It was made in 1968 and was only $300.00 when I got it a year or so ago.

    They both shoot like a dream and have the best triggers.

    I'd love to see a pic of that High Standard. What model is it?

    I am fond of the K frame 22 revolvers. I especially like the six shot stainless 617 as its trigger is nearly as good as at least one four-ish decade old K22, and the stainless is quite easy to take care of. Sometimes I wipe the surface and once a decade or so I squirt some WD 40 onto it.

    Deadite,

    How reliable is the 41? That has been on my list for awhile, but is a bit on the high side.

    A S&W 17 or (K22) is a great revolver. Ive had mine for 20 years and shooting it never gets old.

    I just bought a Ruger Single Six .22lr/mag a couple of months ago and I can tell I will like it just as much as the S&W.

    Browning Buckmark is another great gun, but you said you have a Ruger Mark II.

    I have all of the above. If I had to limit to two, it would be tough, but it would have to be the Ruger Mark II and the S&W 17.

    Since you already have the best 22 out there (Ruger MKII). The next pick of mine would be the S&W 41. I have an S&W revolver also but 6 shots in a 22 is just not fun!

    It's designed for standard velocity ammo, so when I use it(CCI SV), it runs flawlessly. A must have. :)

    My father in law has one and even used High Velocity and his works with those as well.

    Another vote for the Model 17- (3). Mine shoots so well it makes me look good.

    I'll take a blue gun over stainless steel anyday. And six shots is plenty for me. I'm in no hurry to shoot up my ammo.

    YMMV.

    Everything pictured was acquired for under $800
    +1 on the model 41 and Model 17 S&Ws.
    A Walther PP .22 is another gun to consider.
    Lightweight, easy to carry, reliable and as accurate as some larger target guns.
    Only downside is the extra magazines are quite expensive, but I love mine nine the less.
