which would you get and why?
the walther just cause its so damn sexy
but the ruger would be next in line before any other .22
The ruger just seems to fancy, like it'll jam in a second.
i've only shot the ruger so far. i loved it. not one problem.
that browning looks pretty sweet.
the browning feels better and is much cooler. if i were to buy an integrally suppressed .22, a buckmark would be it.
If we are talking beginner/amature shooter, I would have to say Ruger; face it -- it is a proven gun that will eat anything it gets fed.
Now, if you are a tinkerer/hobbiest who knows a decent bit about guns, then I would say the P22; these things are rarely right outta the box and gotta be tweaked to get them to run right. Thank the Lord mine finally works. Not to mention, the sweet trigger pull that I put on it. Furner is right, it is damn sexy; but this bitch is even hotter when it works right.
I've seen Ruger's on the range plenty of times. Seems to be a proven shooter. But I would not give up my Walther P22 though. I've fired thousands of rounds through it without any problems. But cleaning it is a pain in the ass with the fake compensator though...
what did you have to tweak on it and what was giving you trouble?
Browning Buckmark Bullseye or S&W Model 41.
Smith 41 is probably one of the best .22 pistols made. I don't recommend the walther at all.
