Will end up with a suppressor on it at some point.

Suppressor is already purchased an inbound......

I bought the Buckmark tonight. I may buy another 22lr pistol though, so keep answering.

All the way baby. You can even have it fitted with an integral suppressor, very cool!

I'm a big fan of the buckmark.
The walther would be my 2nd choice.

Anything ruger would be bottom of the list. (They sold out to the clintons, remember?)

SHEISLEGEND has a Buckmark and absolutely loves the frickin' thing.

I almost got one too but then the MKIII came out at the right time and I got it. American mag release! American mag release! w00t!!!
They both shoot like lasers.


awesome review of MKIII on Gunblast

Go over to the Walther boards and read how reliable (lmao) these P22's are.

There is actually a thread titled: "How do I make my P22 NOT suck"

They have been around for 50 years and are always in Bullseye competitions. They have something going for them.

I am quite possibly the largest fan EVER of the BuckMark, I have two of them. One of them is WELL over 50k rounds, was scoped for awhile, and even as "broken-in" as it is, was shooting dime sized groups at 25 yards without much trouble. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. I am not yet a fan of the Mark III, because of the loaded chamber indicator, but it could be just fine.

I think Brownings can be had quite a bit cheaper if I recall correctly.

LMFAO!

There's more...

The PHOENIX silenced pistol is a silencer system constructed on a stainless steel Ruger MK II. Through the use of an advanced baffle design, the PHOENIX delivers an unheard of 43 dB reduction with no first round pop, without the use of liquid or coolant assist. This makes the PHOENIX the most efficient suppressed Ruger MK II in its size class. The PHOENIX contains no mesh, wipes, springs, or any other user replaceable packing materials. The combination of stainless steel and CNC machined aerospace quality aluminum result in an attractive and durable sound suppressor system, which will last the life of the host firearm. The tensioned barrel provides accuracy two to three times superior to an unsilenced Ruger MK II while the calculated barrel porting ensures that projectiles will remain subsonic over a wide variety of environmental conditions while still delivering enough velocity for animal or pest control. Options include factory installation of match grade trigger components and tritium sights.

Looks and sounds(as in description) just like Cieners MkII integral setup. They start with a bull barrel MkII and turn the barrel down,drill the holes,fit the aluminum baffles,and slide a ChroMo or S.S. sleeve over it and a threaded end cap.When it's done,it looks like a fat bull barrel.

I picked "other".

If you've got a Glock - I cannot reccomned the Advantage Arms 22 kit enough. I also believe they make a barrel w/ threads on the end as an option. It's the only 22 pistol I shoot now-a-days. These things are nuts-on accurate.

Ruger Mk II or III. The III is a trade-off.... Don't care for the loaded chamber indicator but the mag release is an improvement. And they put that silly warning on the bottom of the barrel.

Here's a MkII slabside that Kurt did for me recently. Thought it turned out pretty good.:



Link Posted: 5/24/2005 2:46:26 PM EST
The Buckmark's controls are laid out in the same pattern as the 1911. If you are a 1911 fan, you will be able to transition to the Buckmark very easily.

I found the Buckmark to be much more reliable and accurate than the Ruger Mk.II. I have never seen a Mk.III, so I can't comment on it. I found the II/45 to be an ugly gun, and I prefer the Buckmark's slide system anyway.

The Mk.II has one advantage, though; its slide system (with the two little "ears" on the back) makes it easy for someone with small, weak, or injured hands to rack the slide.

Politics aside, I vastly prefer the Buckmark. Politics included, I wouldn't touch a Ruger with *your* dick, much less my own.

Big MFn +1 for the AA kit on the Glock.

Friend of mine has the AAC Phoenix and a silenced Buckmark. Both are nice.

His Phoenix has a really well-done match trigger on it. I have never shot a pistol with a nicer trigger. It is accurate and very quiet.

The Buckmark he has is also integrally-silenced. It is just a whisper quieter than his Phoenix, but the trigger is not quite as sweet.

All in all, I like the Phoenix just a tad better. It isn't quite as quiet as the Buckmark, but the difference is miniscule. And that trigger is all the difference in the world.

Most people will say Buckmark or Mk III. I have an old Mk II 512 and it's extremely accurate (i.e. fun) but a chore to clean (i.e. a total bitch). As was said by someone else, the mag release on the III is a HUGE improvement, it's a push-button up on the frame instead of the old shit mag release on the the bottom of the grip on the Mk II. Either get some rails for it (some models come equipped with them NIB) and make it a super-accurate plinker or suppress it, which is what I'm doing to my next Mk-series pistol.

I'd buy a nine-shot 22LR revolver. You could then use any 22 ammo in it reliably. I've seen too many guys at the range with Rugers, Brownings, and especially Walthers that spent time trying to get them to run. When I had my CCW class, about 2/3 of the people had 22 autos, and they all had problems. With a revolver, it just works. Also, you can fire shorts or primer-only rounds if you want.z

S&W Model 41 5-1/2" Heavy Barrel

I'm not gonna knock any choice. I LIKE .22s.

I voted MII cause that is the one I have and I am very pleased with it. Shoot good groups and is vewy vewy quiet.

I also have a S&W 41 but I shoot it rarely as it is ammo sensitive and I don't have it suppressed. And, well, I like the Ruger. BTW - I hate IAMLEGEND. I am trying to control spending and you show me THAT beautiful Phoenix? All I can do to control myself.

Here is my Ruger:

Another vote for the Mosquito. I'm thinking of selling the Buckmark for one.

The Ruger's are very nice as well, but pricey when I get done adding everything I want.

Walther has completely lost any semblance of respect that I may have had for them. A friends G22 that he bought the previous day literally had parts flying off of it before the end of a brick of ammo. Last trip to the range, I saw the first automatic single shot P22 I have ever heard of. Only a few weeks old and with (the owner claimed) very few rounds through it, it ceased to function, requiring him to pull the slide back after every round.

I just bought my son (ya right) an MKIIwith the 7" barrel.

It's a classic and shoots like a lazer.

I looked at the Browning, Walther and Ruger 22/45. The Browning, well, I have suppressed, all thumbs, knuckle dragging syndrom and I just don't like plastic. (no I don't own a Glock). The other ones didn't have the 7" barrels.

Edited, PS I went stainless.

Ruger MK512.

That's the one I wanted, but I ended up with the 5 3/4" standard barrel without target sights. Damn, damn accurate. I love that little pistol.

I second this. I have a Sport King 103 and it is the finest 22 I have ever shot. It has never given me a problem in countless boxes of ammo. It feeds and ejects everything I feed it that has some sort of coating on the projectile (just about all .22LR rounds these days). Its diet generally consists of the cheapest 500 round box of bullets that Walmart has to offer. It is several decades old and older than me, but is very tight still and shoots like a laser.

I know in TEXAS you can carry a .22 auto, but you cannot qualify with it. I don't know about SC though.

I'm not sure I would count Sig Sauer's T&E as "blazed", it does look promising so long as the Mosquito runs well without a can I imagine it should do OK with one.
