I've always wanted a .22 pistol.

I'm currently debating any of the 1911 .22 conversion units (please indicate make if you recommend one of these) versus the SIG Trailside.

With the Trailside, I'd probably get the standard model with fixed sights only because I'm not sure I'd like the "target" style wood grips. I would likely add adjustable rear sights at some point, however. I am unsure on the 4.5" v. 6" bbl though. What are these going for? I'm leaning toward the SIG as a dedicated gun.

I would just be using this for general plinking. Kind of a "fun gun" if you will.

For a bit less money you can get a superior .22 in a Browning Buckmark.

Shoots wonderfully, has the same feel of balance as good as a High Power. Grips allow good fit for right or left handed shooters.

They will outshoot virtually any .22 under the S&W Model 41.

Thanks for the info. Haven't thought of the Buck Mark.

So, I guess what it comes down to is:

MSRP: $482

I'm not sure what the features are of the SIG v. Browning, so am guessing that these are comparable models.

Please fill me in on the details, etc.



Approx. $440??

EDITED to add that I really need to get out and handle both of these pistols.

You can buy Buckmarks for around $225. I haven't priced a Sig lately so I don't recall where they are.
