    Solid, cheap .22 revolver

    I currently work at a sporting goods store and lately have been able to get ahold of more and more .22 ammo. I don't currently own a .22 but would like a decent 22 revolver. Single action. The 22 semi auto handguns are just too dang finicky for me. Revolvers don't care, and I like that.

    Ruger and S&W make nice ones and you get what you pay for. ( Used??? )

    If you weren't set on SA only, I'd suggest a used High Standard Sentinel. I found a 9 shot snubbie and really enjoy it.

    Ruger single six fire 22 or 22 mag...taurus also makes a quick change gun


    Just note a good number of double action 22lr have rather heavy trigger due to the round...

    For a SA revolver you're best bet is a Ruger Single Six.

    Those High Standard Sentinels have kinda a cheapo feel with the kind of metal the frame is fabricated from but they do "shoot a house afire." Plus the ergonomics are really outstanding with the factory provided molded plastic stocks. Really, the frames mostly just look tacky with wear and use and are fine for the .22 cartridge. I've shot a few over the years and my brother-in-law has one. They're really pretty nice and not too expensive if one can find a good 'un.

    How about a Heritage revolver? We have them at the place I work and it seems like a well made handgun.

    I like .22 revos too. But good ones aren't cheap.

    My Ruger .22/45 is very, very reliable with a wide variety of ammo (and scary accurate.) Some bulk stuff won't go bang at times, but I've had that happen with that stuff in most of my .22's.

    I always thought the H&R sportsman was a pretty cool 22. Don't know what they go for now a days

    I've seen the Heritage on sale at my LGS and they throw in a brick of 22LR. My problem is I can't keep enough 22LR in stock to justify another 22 caliber gun purchase.

    I bought a used Iver Johnson Sealed Target 8 revolver a while back. The sights are really basic, but other than that the gun is just fun to shoot. And the fact that you have to remove the cylinder to load/unload helps to slow your shooting down, helping accuracy and conserving some ammo.

    I enjoy shooting .22 revolvers, too. I FINALLY broke down last year, and bought a S&W airweight snubby in .22 Lr.

    That gun is actually a lot more fun to shoot than I ever imagined. I thought it would be a cost effective way to practice with a snubby, and it is. But the bonus was the fun element.

    No question that the Ruger Single 6, or 8 models are great guns, as well.

    I have the Heritage Revolver, it's a very nice plinking SA. It has been reliable, accurate, and has a very nice price point. I really like mine.
