    Lightbulb Inexpensive .22 cal. - 5 or 6 round

    I am looking for a cheap yet reliable .22 revolver. I would also be interested in a derringer type .22 with a breakdown barrel, any advise? It would absically be used for the range and novelty. Anyone have any ideas or links?

    Ruger Single Six or Super Single Six, maybe a Bearcat? What barrel length are you looking for?

    I would be looking for something in the 4 inch range, but a snub nose would also be an option. It all depends on the price.

    If - fairly big ''if'' you can find a good condition Charter Arms Pathfinder - that might be handy. One I had was rather loose when I got it but they are great lil guns - nice grip and 2" barrel. Wouldn't cost a whole lot either.

    If you can put up with longer barrel then Single Six is a nice revo - if too you don't mind SA.

    Used H&R or other might make a good , cheap .22 plinker.

    As a default, consider a used Ruger MKII.
    My favorite handgun, period

    Get the ruger single six , 6 inch barrel, and a .22 mag cylinder, too.

    I agree with Rocky on the H&R. I bought a VERY well used 9 shot in 1962, and it still goes fishing/camping with me. Has never failed.

    While its not cheap , my old S&W mod 17 has shot up enough bricks of .22 ammo to make weights for heavy equipment . The finish on it is shot but mechanicaly it is as tight as it was when new . I really think that due to the number of rounds you are likely to fire with a .22 vs a centerfire it is no place to " go cheap " . In .22 you literaly need to think of how many rail cars full of ammo it will live thro @ say 8 bucks for 500 rounds it adds up fast .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Bob - I nearly mentioned the K-22/M17/M18 category - I love those and of course a benefit having DA and swing out cyl. Only problem is possibly that prices for those are on high side and so not exactly a budget gun.

    Sure tho - if one can be afforded and found - great guns. Not sure without checking whether they went much shorter than 6" tho - if hagphish wants a 4" or shorter.

    That is a tremendous gun. I have shot more rabbits with one than my .204 ruger and my 22 mag rifles combined.
