Have both the Ruger SR22 and the Beretta M9. Like them both, I use the SR for my CPL loaner, closely approximates size, action of CCW pistols. Been pretty malf free, keep clean. The Beretta M9 is a full size pistol, I have the 9mm M9, so this is my practice gun, love the 17 round mags, carry in the military holster when am out and about on the farm.
So, depends on your main purpose; light weight, ccw type or full size range gun with lots of rounds in mag.

Not "full size" but Bersa's Thunder 22 is DA/SA and is a really nice shooter. Good 3-dot sights, cheap to purchase.

Regardless of size, I would recommend a Bersa.

I would highly suggest a S&W Victory model for the price. They are deadly accurate and have a real nice barrel and triiger package out there already if you feel you need it. THey come with a really nice trigger already and are very easy to disaemble for cleaning as well.

A great revolver option is available!

Ruger LCRX! Available in snub nose and 3 inch.

Shots every thing from shorts to long rifle, no worries about cycling quiet rounds not blazing fast stuff, nor shot shells.

It will be my choice in a month or two.

Love my LCR in 327. Sold my 22LR about two years ago, buying a new one soon.

But, but, but....to stay with the OP's request....full size only, $400-$450, DA/SA trigger in a semi auto. That eliminates half the pistols being suggested...SR22, P22, Smith compact are all small,certainly not full size. Hope that Victory has a better barrel than the ones I've seen...but isn't it SA only? 1917

I have to disagree, big time. Bersa Thunder .22's, In General, are very picky as to what type of ammo they like. I have one and love it, AFTER I did a ton of mods to get it to work with nearly any ammo. See the mods at:

All I can think of right now is the Beretta M9 in .22 LR. DA/SA full size, $400 ish. Don't know how ammo picky it is though.

Just go to Gun Broker.com and do search for 22 pistol etc. There are a lot
of older discontinued models that shoot well and are cheap... as in $150
give or take a little. I bought three, a Buckmark, a S&W and an older Ruger.
all 5 or 6 inch barrels full size. I dont think any of the big name brand
pistols ever had any real quality issues. Get what you like.

5] New or used price of around 400.00-450.00 ish.

I used to have a Walther and wish I had kept it. I like what I have read about some of the Walthers, S&W, Sig, but do want to be able to pull back the slide on it for a true SA/DA gun. I currently have a Colt full size .22 LR which looks like the government model .45 but I just want to switch to something else.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
Well, it seems an easy choice to me. If you liked the Walther you had and wished you'd kept it then just get another one and be happy.

Kadet for sure. Even more accurate than the SW 41 target I had for years. Mine is threaded and used with Sparrow suppressor.

SIG P226 Classic
http://tssoutfitters.com/shop/sig-sa...0-1-poly-grip/

$487.48 Free shipping.

I cut my SIG teeth on this model several years ago. For a couple hundred and change more you can add an X-Change kit in any number of calibers. I got a .357 SIG kit for mine and got stuck on the SIG train for awhile after that... But that's another story.

The SIG fits your requirements and is a fine handgun...at least I love mine !

Happy hunting !

I think the Ruger SR22 would be a good choice. It is similar to the walther you had and the only downside is, its not quite fullsize. I had a SR22 and loved it. I traded it off for something I wanted more at the time but never had any issues with it. The Berretta M9 22 would also be a good choice. I dont have any experience with most of the Sig pistols but..... DO NOT GET A MOSQUITO!!!!!!! My brother in law had one, WORST gun I have ever shot. Unreliable with everything I had(including minimags) and worst trigger I have ever experienced and I dont care about triggers most of the time. I wouldnt take a Mosquito if you gave it to me. I have shot a bunch of Ruger MK I,II and III pistols and a couple Buckmarks but if you want SA/DA stay away from them and the Victory, you wont be happy.
