    How are the 1911 style .22s as far as jams go? I had a Colt Ace at one time and that thing was a jamomatic. I didn't even bother with the option to switch it to a .45 (I already had a Commander anyway) because it wasn't worth it IMO. That's another one I wish I still had though... looking back.

    I asked about them a little while back, the consensus seemed to be avoid the Chiappa, but the GSG is ok. Also some of the .22 conversion kits have a good reputation, advantage arms comes to mind.

    But I would up going with a Ruger Mark 22/45, which is designed to have a similar feel and controls.

    I love that Ruger. And I'll bet my usual LGS still has one, but then I read how hard they were to clean or take apart... it might have even been in your thread, as it was a recent one.
    I guess those shooting shows probably get paid money, or given the gun to keep, just for using it, so they aren't going to mention any jams. It seemed pretty reasonable though (the Chiappa). I certainly don't want to mess with jams though, like I mentioned about that Colt Ace.

    My .22 pistol thread was almost a year ago, but here you go: Need .22 pistol selection help

    It got about 5 pages of replies, with some good reading in there.

    The Ruger is kind of a pain to disassemble, but, with practice it gets easier. A lot of .22's can be ammo sensitive, so you might need to try a few different types before you find a reliable one. But most .22s I have seen run fine of the Federal Bulk Pack .22 ammo for plinking.

    Either the Ruger Single Six or the Henry Rifle in .22mag

    Just ONE .22 would be tough - I have an even dozen of 'em - two pistols, three revolvers, two pump guns, four autoloading rifles and a bolt gun. The 10/22 gets my vote as the overall most versatile - in terms of how many different roles can it fill.

    I have a Savage .22 lr that I bought from Walmart 10 years ago for $99. Made cheap but works great. My Wife wants to get a 10/22. For a .22lr rifle, you probably can't beat the 10/22. Just this spring, I bought a Walther P22 with the 3.5 inch barrel. It likes high velocity ammo but is a blast to shoot. Pretty accurate too.

    If I could only have one .22 it would be a Ruger Single Six Convertible. I've got one, it would be the last .22 I'd give up.

    I'm really liking the looks of that Ruger 10/22 carbine.
    And the GSG 1911-22 seems like a nice way to get back into a 1911 platform. They've got some fun looking .22 rifles, too.
    I think I may just do a little "browsing" tomorrow...

    CZ 452 American. It's just about perfect.

    Remington Nylon 66 or a bolt gun, like a Sako Finn Fire.

    Ruger Mark III was my choice and I've never regretted it.
