They come up quite often on Gunbroker and Auctionarms. Keep an eye open on your local auctionarms site, good chance of snagging one locally.

I like to see the guns in person before buying, I am very selective about what I get, so I rarely buy on auction sites or online without great pictures and documentation. That being said, I will start to monitor those sites and see what comes up and go from there. Other than that, I will continue to search the tables at gun shows and, when I get sent on the road for work I have a network of cool little gun shops that have interesting stuff for me to check out in my travels.


Ride safe !

800 is actually not too bad....mine was actually a tad bit more than that. That cell phone pic does not show it but it is in real nice shape with nice color....That CZ above it is fresh out of the box....I almost did not post up the pic as it looks like total hell.

Great tip about the subsonic ammo.

Just sent the paperwork in, I hope to hear in a few days about a Romanian M69 in .22lr I found.

Got one.....you are going to love that thing. I bought mine about 10 years ago box fresh....then the bacement flooded and I lost ALL the boxes to ALL my rifles....talk about pissed. The guns all OK, but to lose the boxes that really ticked me off.

Yep it's a single. Very accurate even with the cheap glass on it. I think the rifle is from 1929.

My new collection. The target is my dickin around with the new Savage. First day at the range, haven't shot in a few years. Standing, supported on my elbows. Not great, but I'm happy with it. A little more zeroing with a proper rest and it'll be a tack driver.

Taurus Tracker 991

Thinking about picking up another 22. I really like the looks of the Taurus Trackers. In my price range also. In either 22lr or 22 wmr. The magnum especially looks fun since I don't have one. I have other nice 22's. Just looking for a good knock around-glove box-saddlebag gun. The problem is that they have a reputation for being junk. Has their quality improved at all lately? Any of you FF's have or had one, and want to rate it? What is the advice of the collective? Pick one up or drop it and run?

If you're wanting a 22 wheelgun, consider a Ruger Single Six platform. Some of the models come with a 22lr and 22mag cylinder.

Single Actions!

Are a pain to load and unload especially in 22. Even poping the cylinder, give me a double action anyday.

Yup, it has to be a double action. Really just looking for opinions on the Tracker. Especially intrested in anyones experience with the 22 WMR model. Let me splain a bit here. I have a really nice Dan Wesson .22 lr. Beautiful blue at about 98%. Looks like they're getting up there in value, and I'm looking for a replacement to take the beating off the DW and keep it nice. I did a Giggle search for 991 reviews and found page after page of people bitching about Taurus quality defects. Well, we know how the internet is. Complains out number praise 50-1. I have a Taurus m# 85ch. 3 inch snubby .38 spl. I think it's a fine gun for the price paid. Shoots fine. So what happened to Taurus? Since I lurk on this thread all the time, I thought I'd try for an unbiased opinion. Anybody got one in 22lr or 22wmr?

100% agreed. I am a ruger man. 10/22, sp 101, Bisley .44. However, I want a double action. no compromise on this feature.

No. And granted it was a long time ago, but the one and only Taurus I owned was a festering piece of lead shaving shit. Customer service was equal to the gun itself - two trips to the factory to try to fix. One took 6 months, and when ot still didn't index properly the second trip took 4 months. They never got it right.

I'll never own one again. Not because they made a bad gun, but instead because they provided bad service. Nowadays I'd rather spend more and cry once. My bottom is Ruger (not so elegant but quality is good), then Kimber, and maybe one day something from Wilson Combat.

Currently I am waiting for a new fluted barrel version of the Ruger 22/45 lite to show up at my local dealer. It should be a fine .22, though it doesn't sound like it will meet fastdadio's criteria.

Tarus Tracker

I have a Taurus Tracker, 22lr, 7 shot, 6" barrel (Model 970). I like the gun and it shoots great. I want to get some different grips. The factory grips are soft rubber and feel a little squirmy. The best thing about a 22 revolver is they don't care what kind of ammo you use.
