    Question Which Ruger .22 Pistol?

    I am looking at .22 pistols, and I think Ruger has the best of them, minus maybe the M&P .22

    So which one of the three would you get?

    INTEDNED USE: Plinking , target practice, training/muscle memmory

    Ruger Mark III
    Ruger SR22
    Ruger Charge
    Ruger 22/45
    OR.. Smith and Wesson M&P22




    Thanks!

    I voted charger before I read your intended use. The charger is a blast but I wouldn't call it a plinker. Mine goes to the range every time I do but that's off a bench. It now wears a Kidd barrel and the trigger has been upgraded. You can cover 5 shots with a quarter at 50yds.

    For your intended use I would go with either the Mark III or 22/45, whichever one fits your hand better. I'd also get a bull barrel. Makes a good plinker & for target practice.

    If you own a Ruger 1911 (or any other), then I'd go with the 22/45, since the ergonomics are supposed to closely match a 1911; otherwise, go with the one that feels best in your hand ...

    In my case, it was the one that felt best in my daughters hand; which was the SR22

    Just picked up my SR22 tonight. NO range time yet but this weekend for sure. Got some federal (1240fps), and remmington(1255) to start with. Get some CCI mini mag as well I guess. Don't know what is actually recommended yet just try a bunch and see who does best.

    Recommendations?

    Have not shot .22 in many years but looking forward to it.

    The Ruger. I'm biased I've owned one for years and shot thousands of rounds through it and have never had a jam or any other issue with it. Very reliable and accurate.

    I like the MkIII, but field stripping and reassembly can be a real bitch. I've got a MkII I purchased in the early 80s. If I had it all to do again, I might buy a Browning Buckmark instead - much easier to maintain and customize.

    You may consider a Sig (GSG) or Colt (Umarex) 1911-22. They are very accurate and, as far as the Sig is concerned, it breaks down much like a true 1911 and has the same feel and weight as it's bigger brother. My Sig 1911-22 is super fun to shoot and cost under $350.

    The Mk III is as tough as a T-34 tank.

    If I'm limited to Rugers only, it would be Mk III or 22/45 for range/plinking and the SP-101 22 for camp/trail gun.

    That is all.

    Find yourself a Browning Challenger III . It will be well worth the effort.

    I recently compared the Mark III, 22/45, and SR22, knowing that I was walking out with either one of those, or a Browning Buckmark. I ended up getting the SR22. After I installed the larger grip and the magazine extensions, it fit my hand perfectly, and was a joy to shoot. It weighs next to nothing, and because of that, it will likely get carried when and where others wouldn't. Two Thumbs Up.

    I have two Mark III 22/45's and I am very happy with them. They are inexpensive and can be modified very cheaply to become very good shooting pistols which then become very easy to disassemble and reassemble.

    I'd go with the MK3 or the 22/45. They will do everything you need them to do, quite well. Which one will boil down to personal preference.
