    Looking for a 22 handgun

    I am looking for a 22 caliber handgun and am looking for some recommendations. I have a Glock 22 and have looked into the conversion kits that would enable it to fire 22 caliber. Is this a good way to go? Alternatively, what is good reliable model in 22 caliber.

    Any thougths or comments are appreciated

    Thanks

    I'm not sure of conversion kits for the Glock 22, but if available, that's not a bad option. It allows you to practice with the same gun, which it good.

    As far as a reliable 22, the Buckmark is well regarded. However, I opted to go with the Sig Sauer Mosquito, because I wanted one that is similar to my P229 and P239 (in operation) so it would be helpful to teach my wife with.

    Good luck.

    Browning Buckmark is an excellent 22 pistol, I also have owned a smith and wesson 22a which never gave me problems.
    Current collection: Too many according to the wife...

    Many good .22 options out there. For the most part a conversion kit will cost nearly as much if not more than a good .22 pistol. I have a Ruger Mark ll BBL that I love to shoot. Granted Ruger's can be a PITA to clean, but it's a good shooter.

    What are you looking for in a .22 handgun? Match shooting? Fun with plinking? What's your price range? Do you want to use cheap bulk ammo or performance ammo?

    FWIW, I wanted something cheap to plink with and teach my wife how to shoot. So, I wanted something affordable, reliable with bulk ammo, and easy to take down and clean. I chose the Beretta Neos and am happy I did.

    Here is a range report I did on the Neos. http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ally-ugly.html

    P.S. The 'ugly' had nothing to do with the Neos.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I'd go for the conversion kit if you're looking for cheaper practice. I'm getting the conversion for my 229 so I can plink with it.

    I think Bud's has the Sig 220(?) .22s on sale right now. You Sig guys may want to check that out before considering investing in the conversion kit. For a .22 pistol, I just bought a SS Buck Mark Camper. Still haven't shot it though but I'm excited to get it out to the range.

    The Sig Mosquito sucks. My P22 is quite reliable and lots of fun to shoot. That said I would look at the Ruger, Buckmark, Walther and the S&W .22 revolvers too. Ruger has a new .22 Charger that looks nice too.

    For what it's worth, I have a 22a that I absolutely love. Simple, accurite and affordable. However if I had a Glock that I could change from a ## to a 22 I think I would do that simply for the convenience, security and the training that is afforded by using the same arm.

    On the other hand, a nice little 22A adds yet another pony to the stable.

    Best!

    ps, the 22A eats recoil buffers. S&W will send you some free or you can buy them from Brownells. If you shoot CCI 0030, you will need to replace the buffer about every 1000 rounds. Some more, some less. Otherwise a nice little investment.

    I think it was a Sig 220 with the .22 kit already installed. Something's going on with Bud's site right now and I can't find it. There's a notice up that they are having problems.

    Are you talking about the initial run of Walther p22s?

    Mine, which came with the "a" magazines is a nice little gun except that I had to buy "b" magazines.

    I'm not sure what you meant by "recoil buffer." If you meant the spring, mine has lasted for several thousand rounds and I use mostly mini-mags, a few hundred stingers too, and some plain old Remington LR.

    I unfortunately bought from one of the earliest production runs, but I don't doubt that the newer ones are going to hum.

    It's really hard to beat the Ruger 22s or the Browning Buck Marks but there are a lot of good ones out there. I have a S&W Model 41 and if you can survive the sticker shock, I'm not sure there's a better production one out there but Rugers & Brownings will do darn close to the same job for a whole lot less. I currently have the Model 41, a P22, a Taurus Model 94 and a Ruger Single Six. I actually have the most fun with the P22 but it is a bit picky about ammo and being limp-wristed.
