    inexpensive .22 revolver not cowboy type?

    I am looking for a .22 cal revolver in the 300 dollar price range. I have found several inexpensive used .22's in the local gun shops but they all look like Wild Wild West cowboy guns. I would use the gun for fun plinking and small game hunting so i am guessing that i would need at least a 5 inch barrel. Is that right?

    I have a glock 19 and a .22 rifle and have my heart set on a .22 revolver pistol for this purchase.

    Is there a revolver in the 300's or close to it that dosent resemble the old cowboy pistols?

    Those "cowboy" type or "Wild Wild West" revolvers you're looking at are called single action revolvers. From your posting, it appears you are looking for a double action revolver. The only thing that would be near your price point of decent quality would be the Taurus line of .22 revolvers (or Rossi, same company). However, they do have quality control issues. The designs and metal are excellent. It's the execution that can sometimes be a bit off. Find one in a store and look it over.

    Your best chance is a Taurus Model 94 or a used H&R 929/939 series revolver. My $.02.

    S&W made or makes several. Model 317 comes to mind as one of them. Might be able to find a good used on on gunbroker in your price range.

    How to Buy a Really Good Gun, Cheap:
    Buy a used gun. Doing this just about doubles the power of your money.
    Get a time-limited, written, money-back guarantee.
    Take your "new" gun to a good gunsmith, and ask him to find out what's wrong with it. If it gets a clean bill of health, keep it. If not, return it and start again.

    If you can find one of those ugly 6" 929s, buy it. 9 shot very accurate . You won't wear it out. JBR
