Two salesman who sold it to me are also gun smiths and they were scratching their heads, off to remington I feel i should get a new gun, I know how these factory fixes go.

Out of the box at 25, 50 and 75 yards (I ran out of gravel pit), mine killed a shit ton of navel oranges this weekend. Best fun money I've spent in a while.

We had a "plinking" session at the range Saturday. Lots of fun. The two hits of the day were ice and full pop cans. For the ice, we froze red beer cups full of water and placed the ice on the berm, which is about 60 yards from the shooting positions.

That's exactly what I was thinking about doing next time - thanks for the tip!

Just bought my first handgun (Ruger LC9) a couple of weeks ago and have spent way to much at the range on 9mm, so figured I would buy an inexpensive .22 to save some cash on ammo - if I can find any, but that's a different thread..

Have a couple of options I am looking at. First is a used Astra Constable at a LGS. $250, seems in decent enough shape, some patchiness on the bluing, and mild surface corrosion on the plain steel parts (hammer,trigger etc) but a real neat looking gun. All functions seem to work as expected. Shop policy is they will fix any problems that arise within a reasonable amount of time after the sale.

For the same price though I can get a new Beretta NEOS from Academy - although the local store only has the two tone ($300) at which price point opens up the Browning Buck Mark and S&W equivalent option.

I used to shoot a Ruby (Llama) .22 revolver with my dad way back in my early teens, but never have used a .22 semi auto.


So, what do the experts here think?

The Browning Buckmark and Ruger 22/45 always seem to bubble to the top when folks ask for opinions for their first .22 pistol.

Or the Walther P22, which some people say can be fussy but I love mine.

I'm still hovering over the "Buy Now" button for one after weeks of research.

My Romanian M-69 came in. This gun I am putting together to do an upcoming Appleseed event in my area.

This is how it came out of the box.





I plan on spending a little time working on it...



Like getting all the Cosmoline off ... Then going to try and refinish the stock....

early teens, but never have used a .22 semi auto.


So, what do the experts here think?

One other thought, from my experience- before I bought my LC9, all my shooting was single action revolvers and SA/DA autos. I found that the LC9 is not an easy trigger to get used to (I have whined incessantly on other threads and forums about it) unless you have a lot of DA experience. I've put about 400 rounds thru the Ruger and am just starting to get used to it.

If you are practicing with a .22 to get better with the LC9, maybe someone who has both could suggest a double-action .22 that might be more like the LC9 trigger. I dunno, just a thought- if I'm full of shit I'm sure someone will correct me.

Plus, any .22 with a trigger like the LC9 should be pretty damn inexpensive, I would think



oh and hedge, pilot hit the nail on the head in this thread- the p22 is slightly fussy about ammo, but the big trick is in how you clean it. Any excess oil or crud leaves you with feeding, firing, and ejection problems- and I think a clean pistol with too much oil is worse than a dirty pistol. I haven't gone to the powder lubricant yet but just an extra patch through it before going to shoot make a big difference.

Same here with my p22 . It will eat federal bulk with no problem don't like Rem white box stuff . I have about 2000 rounds thru mine and it shoots great. Short barrel w/ lazer . Of course my old ruger MK II target model that hasn't been taken down in 20 years will shoot anything.
Hawk has a Sig 22 that won't run a mag thru without a stoppage of some kind. Pisses Hottie off to no end

The Sig mosquito is the pickiest gun I've ever owned. I found that cci blazer works extremely well. Remington thunderbolts are also good rounds. The gun should have come with two springs. Use the lighter of the two. Once everything is dialed in, and with the right ammo the gun is very fun to shoot.

I picked up a Ruger SR22 a couple weeks ago and so far no issues feeding Federal, Winchester, or Blazer bulk. The Blazers gave me the tightest groups. The Sr22 doesn't group as well as my 22/45 (no surprise given the barrell length) but it fits my small hands better and is a hell of a lot easier to break down. Along those lines, I installed an aftermarket hammer bushing in the 22/45 last night to get rid of the mag disconnect. Makes reassembly a lot easier and the mags now pop out better. Best $10 I've spent recently.
