I would say if you want a 1911 type 22 pick up the Sig, or GSG....I love mine.

The GSG looks like a great pistol but it's a full size 1911, the Browning's appeal is that small size which is why it would make for a good CCW.

I picked up a S&W model 22A target a few months back. Although it felt good in my hand, I was dissatisfied with the performance and build quality. Accuracy was not bad, but not nearly as good as my current MkII target. The mag release is located half way up the front of the grip and is recessed, making it hard to activate without removing your shooting hand and spoiling your aim for rapid fire. Upon taking the pistol down for cleaning, I found a small plastic retainer holding the spring, which had already developed an indentation from shooting. Looking in the case, I found a small envelope in the case containing several replacement retainers. I suppose Smith & Wesson expects that the original plastic retainer will be lost or damaged from shooting often enough to justify including them in the package at point of sale.

True....and while I am not one of those guys that says you are an idiot if you don't carry a 45....but rimfire is just too....well too too many things, unreliable ammo (yea I know better ammo more often goes bang)

But I would say if you are small in stature I would want the reliability that centerfire gives you....380 or even 32 would be my choice....but if all you can manage for one reason or another I think this would be a good gun for you, but I would rather see it in 22mag for someone looking to CCW it....little more oomph and still mild shooting.

Was at the range on Friday night and on my way out noticed they had four new Mark3 in stainless with the long fluted barrels, grovey grips, etc. Slept on it and picked one up Saturday morning. It'll make a great addition to the Browning Buck Mark my wife has.

Beautiful gun, just beautiful.

Now order a Sam's bushing and a LCI block off plate, makes the gun so much better.

I got both contacts at rimfire cental. Sam is from Canada and takes cash only, don't mention anything about gun parts or there will be problems.....

The gun fuctions so much better with the bushinng. Be sure to clean the gun before using it, mine would not cycle the trigger without a good cleaning.

Santa says my son has been a good boy...


Model 71 "Stevens Favorite" Commemorative - .22 LR cal., replica of original, 22" blued octagonal barrel, open sights, plain straight stock, brass/gold color trim on sights, action lever, etc. Made in as far as I can tell 1971.

This will be our second "Stevens" firearm...got an old but nice looking single shot 20ga. last year, exposed hammer for $75.00.

Together, a nice little collection. Perfect "teaching" firearms.

That!

Looks more like a 22mag than a 22LR. Got the GP100 like yours but wouldn't mind the 22 but laws here in Canukstan don't allow me to own anything less than a 4.2 inch barrel.

Beautiful Rifle for the Child. He has been good.

I like falling blocks.

I got it with both cylinders so I can practice with lr and carry the wmr. Still haven't shot it yet though.

Oh my God


Just came on the market today locally, early 1980's Smith and Wesson Model 41. With box. With instruction manual. With original wax paper pistol was wrapped in. With original cleaning kit.

Unfired. Fricking beautiful. I held it in my hand. $950.
