Trying to decide between a FN SCAR and a Larue Tactical PredatOBR any thoughts from those who've shot them?

It would appear I'm in the market for a new .22 pistol. Prefer 5" or so tube. Has to be able to hit a playing card at 20 or so yards. Can't afford a S&W model 41. LOL. I'd love a revolver.

If you can find one, Browning Buckmark.

I don't know how much a S&W 41 is, but if you can find a 6" Colt Diamondback in good condition and if you're eyes are good enough you should be able to hit a playing card at 50+ yards all day long.

I got to run a magazine thru a SCAR 17 and had to work to restrain my giggles - armor piercing tracers sort of do that I guess....

Only downside is that if I buy a $3K gun like that, I'll have to hide it from the wife....

I know what you mean, I have the same problem she'll shoot up all my ammo, then go but one for herself.

I shot the LaRue extensively over a couple of days and want to add a .308 to my safe and don't want to rule out the FN. Looking for thoughts on the FN performance.

Hm, did not have time for that. punching holes in a steel elk at 225 yards with iron sights was too much fun.

I don't know your budget, but the absolute best .22 auto is a High Standard Citation, Trophy or Victor. At 20 yards they will shoot into a dime or less with ammo they like, if you do your job. They run from somewhat less than a S&W 41 to a bit more for one of the 10X series.

http://www.highstandard.com/index.ph...cts/weapons#22

If your budget is less, look no further than the Browning Buckmark. In my experience the quality is very consistent and quite good. IMO they are a better choice than a Ruger MK III and can be had for about the same money or a bit less. Better trigger than a Ruger out of the box, and they are easier to get back together when you field strip.

Another good choice if you can find one is the Colt .22 auto, sometimes referred to as the Cadet. I got one several years back and really like it. Totally reliable, 1" at 25 yds, fair trigger. Unfortunately Colt quit making them some time ago, so you have to look on Gunbroker, or the like to find one, generally in the $400 range.

For a .22 revolver, DA, it's hard to be a K-22 Masterpiece by S+W, if you can find one in your price range - their price tends to reflect their quality. I've got a relatively early one and I was blown away by what they ask for them: They seem to have held their value - mine was my dads.

Solid, easy to shoot well, nice big grips - if you have SMALL hands you might want a Single-Six, which is of course a single action but also comes with a cylinder for .22 WMR which is handy for a critter load.

I also have a Mark I Ruger auto and it's accurate and easy to use as well, if you want an auto.

I'm sure there are plenty of other good .22 wheelguns out there, I just have the one.
