My second handgun
Over Christmas I bought myself a S&W Sigma 9mm. Love the gun. Not that I won't ever shoot the 9...but now my thinking is to get a .22lr for practice and the "inexpensive" ammo (I'm a cheap bast.). What would you recommend? Something like the M&P22 or the 22A? I am looking for something that will perform similar to the 9 but less taxing.
Thanks for any help.
Some of the best shooting, best made, and accurate 22LR semi autos have got to be the Ruger Mark series. Although I have no direct experience, I hear the Browning Buckmark series are very similar. I highly recommend these as top notch 22LR pistols.
Now, in terms of the best and most similar fit to your S&W Sigma... maybe these guns don't make that cut. If you want the same grip, trigger pull, and sighting then the best you can do is get a conversion kit (if available) or get the same gun in a 22LR caliber (if available). Everything else is going to be a compromise of some sort. If you find yourself compromising too much.... then check out the Rugers or Brownings mentioned earlier. I don't think you can do any better in terms of quality, accuracy, and reliability.
The M&P-22 is a nice pistol, The Walther P22Q is a nice pistol. To me.Both are the best in there class....:smt033
