Are you wanting a DA or SA revolver?
I'm thinking of picking up a 22 revolver but don't have the foggiest idea of what's out there. My dad has an awesome S&W that dates back about 50 years but that's the only one I've ever fired.
How about a pick post....show me what you got and how you like it?
I would think that the great majority out there are DA, yes? Honestly I'd prefer DA but wouldn't rule out SA if it's a really cool piece.Originally Posted by Vom Kriege
The Ruger Single Six models are very nice. As for DA, S&W still offers 3 versions of the 617. Ruger makes the SP101 in .22lr, but they aren't that common. Taurus makes a few .22lr revolvers.
My favorite .22 revolver is the S&W model 34-1. it makes a great woods walking gun. It comes in 2" or 4" barrel and also is available in Stainless steel as the model 63.
My father has a 9 shot 22 revolver - not sure the brand. He's had it since I was a boy. Even when it is cocked, the trigger pull must be 12-15 pounds. And, in DA mode, it's gotta be over 20 lbs. I keep telling him to get a smith to work on the trigger. You can't hit anything with this gun.
My favorite is the S&W 617. Mine is a 4 inch, 10 shot. Great shooter.
ruger bearcat is fantastic, but it is a single action.
I looked for a picture of my S&W Model 43 but I can not find one. This is an older airweight revolver and the best 22 revolver I have ever owned. If my name was rgs1975 I would search the Internet and gunshops until I found a Model 43. Happy hunting and regards, Richard
I'm not a big fan of Tarurus but I did pick up Tracker 22lr DA 6inch barrell and love it and great price.
I almost picked up one of those Taurus 45 ACP guns on closeout from CDNN.
How do U like the Taurus?
If you shoot a lot I would stay away from them and go S&W or Ruger. Anything over a 22 will come lose on you with the Taurus. I'm just talking about their revolvers. That's why the price is so cheap on them. You get what you pay for. I don't know much about their auto's.
Well, if I ever get one, it would be a Ruger or a S&W. I figured the quality wasn't as good on the Taurus, but I just assumed the trigger wasn't as good. Didn't really know anything else. I've always been a semi-auto person.Originally Posted by spacedoggy
I found a photo of my S&W M43 and a hiking, fishing, and plinking gun doesn't get any better. Regards, Richard
M43 with Herrett grips:
I talked to my pop last night and confirmed what his was. It's a S&W 22 Masterpiece. It was made in 1953, before S&W used model numbers. It's got a 6" barrel and 5 screw frame...the thing is pretty darn sweet.
Just got a Single Six, and just love it!
Has an interchangeable cylinder, so I can shoot 22LR or 22WMR. It is a Single Action. Got it used, set me back about $200. Sweet shooter.
