I want to buy a .22 pistol that is easy to clean and has a decent price. Any ideas?

P22,Buckmark,MarkIII,Mosquito

The P22 isthe coolest and easy to clean.
The Rugar Mark III is most reliable. (hard to clean)
Buckmark, I have nothing to say about it other than its an option.
The Sig Mosquito is new and there isnot much out about it, But I like it and might pick one up when the price goes down.

My new P22 runs well. My Neo is fairly easy to clean but my next will be the Ruger 22/45.

My 22/45 shoots great and not all that hard to clean once you get the hang of it.

I love my Ruger Mark 2. Never had a hangup, and its still stock out of the box.

The above options are okay, but I personally like the Buckmark for your concerns. The Mark II/III are also very nice, but fail the "easy to clean".

The CZ Kadet is nice, but a bit pricey.

I'd stay away from the P22 and Mosquito.

if you want something really easy to clean have you thought about revolvers? and they are less picky about ammo as there is no cycling/feeding to be an issue.

The Misquito has a LONG WAY TO GO. Mine had four different problems and I sent it back where upon SIG replaced it with a new one which I returned for a refund. Garbage is garbage regardless of who made it.

Browning Buckmark. Reliable and accurate.

Target shows 100 rounds fired over iron sights at 15 yards with old, fuzzy eyes.

I love my Buckmark. The Ruger would be my only other choice.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 3:34:15 PM EDT
Buckmark No. 1........Ruger MarkII or III next. They are both excellent guns.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 5:58:33 PM EDT
Excellent... I will be doing a lot of reading up on these two. Thanks for the recomendations. Now then... Any web sites have them on sale?

You don't have to spend the extra cash...CDNN has 'em on sale

I would vote for the Buckmark or the Ruger MkII (I don't have a MkIII, and I personally abhor the "improved safety" aspect of 'em...look for a MkII). I have two MkII's (a KMK512...5.5" stainless bull barrell and a 6 7/8" "slabside" model) and a Buckmark 5.5 Target. They are all fun, accurate, and reliable. I would give the Buckmark a slight edge in accuracy and ergonomics though.

They don't put guns on their website, but if you download their catalog (worth it) they'll be there

IF and when Sig works out the bugs in the Mosquito
then I will purchase one.

Buy what fits your hand the best. Don't base your decision solely on price. Wait a bit if you have to and get what you want. I have a Buckmark which was around $200 IIRC. I looked at the Rugers and they are fine pistols, but the Buckmark fit me better. You will shoot better and enjoy it more if the gun fits your hand. When the pistol fits your hand you just stick your arm out and you seem to be right on target. The Buckmark is a joy to shoot and cheap to shoot. I shoot it 5X more than all the other handguns combined. Same ratio with my 10/22 and the other rifles.
Don't worry about "easy to clean." Once you get the hang of a particular gun, disassembly and reassembly are no big deal. Mostly, it's just a patch down the bore anyway. Detail cleanings are infrequently necessary.

Try to find a Beretta mdl 70s. It is a small to mid size single action pistol. Mine has never jammed or failed to feed and fire. Not a target gun but just the right size for everyone to have fun with. My wife felt comfortable carrying it when she was a new gunner. Simple takedown.

another vote for ther Buckmark . I love mine
My brother loves his Ruger MKII.
Go figure .
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:13:53 PM EDT
+1 for the ruger MKII 22/45

My moms got one of those and we've never had problem with it.

If you own a Glock, think about an Advantage Arms upper... very accurate, reliable and great training for your carry gun. Oh, and no 4473 to fill in, so its one less item to take for a boat ride if/when the time comes .

I like my Walther P22. Inexpensive to buy, easy to clean, fun to shoot. I've never had a single malfunction with mine. It's fairly accurate, but it's not the most accurate pistol I've ever had.
Link Posted: 1/16/2006 9:06:51 AM EDT
I love my stainless MkII
Link Posted: 1/19/2006 5:10:06 PM EDT
I have a Colt 6" target thats nice and accurate. Does take a little longer to clean but well worth it. The bull barrel is very nice absorbs all the heat, and if they they get close enough a pistol slapping would knock em right down!
Link Posted: 1/19/2006 11:33:02 PM EDT
If it is down to the MKII or the Buckmark, Then put my vote in for the MKII/III. I have most of what we are talking about and my pick would be the P22 with the MKII 2nd. The only bitch about the P22 is if you get the wrong one then it is a POS. But mine goes with me shooting every time and I can't say that about any other gun.
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 4:05:59 AM EDT
Smith and Wesson M41 in either 5" or 7-1/2" configuration.

A higher price point than the others mentioned, but well worth it. About 900 new, 6-800 used.

You'll never be sorry. Easy to clean, and a dream to shoot. Very high resale value.

HA HA. Try downloading that on dial-up. 30 seconds would be a dream.

One of the nice things about the CZ is that you can make 20rd mags for it fairly easily.
