Best .22 Semi auto

I was thinking about the Berretta NEO 22, or a Browning Buckmark....Any advice or feedback about the two?

Best .22 pistol

I had a BuckMark and had a lot of trouble with it. But, to be fair, I think it may have been missing a piece which then caused the slide to stick. The Neos is a piece of junk. It has the worst trigger pull I've ever encountered on a .22 pistol. Plus, it doesn't quite reek of "quality", does it? A Ruger Mk II or III is pretty foolproof. They can be tough to reassemble until you know the tricks, but they are accurate and reliable.

If you want a little more sport, get a Ruger 10/22. Walmart sells a slick one, SS long accurate barrel, they are only made for WalMart. I thinl it is a 22" bbl. Check it out.

22

If you are talking rifle: My Voere (Austria) is the best .22 rifle I have.

Pistol: My Buckmark is great but a Ruger MK-2 is pretty sweet too.

My advice is to buy them all!

.22 rifle and handgun

Handgun: Ruger MKII or MKIII , can't be beat for a primary .22 handgun.

Rifle: My primary squirrel gun (and lots of squirrel hunting up here on the Tennessee ridge!) is a Marlin 60 with a good Nikon 4X scope. My second gun (for visiting grandkids) is another Marlin 60 with a Bushnell 4X scope. Good reliable and accurate guns and tube magazine means no magazines to fumble around with for little fingers in the cold. I have Ruger 10/22 also, but it is for fun (plinking). I have a Winchester 190 that I have retired, as they don't make them anymore and parts are getting harder to find. The Marlin 60 is the consumate .22 hunting gun and all you will need for rimfire hunting.

It is fantastic and really nice looking to boot...

http://ruger.com/products/2245DE/models.html

I shot this pistol setup with wood target grips and a mini red dot at 7 yards and put five rounds into a hole you could cover with the base of 32 cal.

I had never shot the pistol before that. It is totally natural pointing and the trigger is fantastic. It has some weight to it so it does not move around at all and it comes with some great target sights.

Billy has one of these with a can on it and it's a blast, we shoot it in his back yard at cans in front of a little berm. He lives in a sub division and no one hears it or complains.

22 pistol for a keeper

then buy a Ruger Mark I, II, or III pistol. disassembly can have its tricks but they are accurate reliable guns that are hard to beat. If you are a 191 fan then look into the Mark III that has the 1911 style grip. I think Ruger calls it the 22/45. it is a very comfortable shooter and I carry a AMT Hard Baller 1911 style with a 7 inch slide in stainless.

Agreed, none better. Virtually indestructible and ultra reliable. I'm sitting on a stash of bills, waiting for the right deal on one.

We actually use these as loaners for the NRA Basic Pistol course for those taking it that do not own their own firearm yet.

Three or four of them are actually 10 years old or older and still function flawlessly.

.22..

I am embarrassed to say that I have never fired any of the Ruger .22's. I do have a Walther P22 that I am VERY happy with, and a berretta Neos that is a good pistol, but I wouldn't really recomend unless you get a good deal. It's a good .22 just to long and awkward for anything but bench shooting.

I'll add to the Ruger admiration society here. lol
My son has the 22/45 with a 7" SS fluted barrel. It's a dream. Picture below.
The Colt Woodsmaster (if you can find one) or Browning Buckmark are also good.
