22 magnum revolvers



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm interested in picking up a 22 WMR revolver for shooting range use. I am fond of the cartridge and getting a 22 WMR rifle, so I want a revolver to match. For those familiar I want to get a list of maker and models which exist. Which ones do you know, and if you have one, how does it shoot? Any type, single or double action. Thx for replies.

Taurus makes a model 991ss. I don't know the track record of these pistols, but a buddy of mine has one and absolutely loves it. From what I remember, it shoots very well and has a real nice single action and decent double. http://www.taurususa.com/product-det...adcrumbseries= Looks like they also have several in the small frame series as well with barrel lengths from 2" up to 6"

S&W 351 PD is another one. Had an itch awhile back. Ruger single-six has interchangeable cylinders that could come in handy since the WMR makes for a loud bang in a revolver.

I think I would look at the Kel-Tec PMR 30 if I wanted that caliber in a handgun.

That Taurus is gorgeous, at least in the pictures. Will seriously consider if I read some good reviews.

I just got a Heritage 22lr/22mag single action.. One of the most inexpensive on the market right now. Does not have the fit and finish of a Ruger but its 1/3rd the price too. As far as accuracy goes I would match it up against any other single action revolver with fixed sights out there...

.

another vote here for the ruger single six,this time in the hunter configuration...i think the taurus is actually better looking for my purposes (i`m fascinated by shiny objects )but i believe getting a good one is hit or miss

my single six hunter with houge grips and fiber optic front sight

This is a Ruger Single Six that I found a 22 Mag cylinder for. It shoots well, but is fussy. Likes 40 grain WW a lot--- hates 32 grain CCI.

Cocobolo grips were invented for the Single Six.

I bought a new 4" Charter Pathfinder .22 Mag (only), when they were introduced.
When it went back to the factory under warranty for hard extraction, I bought a new 5" Taurus .22 Mag Model 941.

Long stories, short:
The original .22 Mag-only Pathfinder was replaced under warranty with a (then) prototype Dual-Cylinder 4" Target Pathfinder that's been flawless for the last couple of years that I've had it.

The .22 Mag Taurus Model 941 stand-in started side-spitting from the 1st cylinder-full of ammo I put through it.
When it quickly got worse, I returned it to the selling dealer, rather than deal with the known Taurus warranty hassles - and bought this older (1970's) 3" Charter .22 Mag Pathfinder from the same dealer - which has NO issues.



Once upon a time, when it was first introduced, I also had a .22 Mag S&W 351P - the one with the special (titanium ?) frame. I didn't care for it, for subjective reasons, and sold it in less than 5 mins @ a gun show, since it was then new & unobtainium.

I was going to buy a S&W Model 651 .22 Mag/stainless - but was able to buy two Charters for the price of the decidedly better Smith.

I have a 4-3/4" Heritage Rough Rider which I fire 99% with .22 mag. I purchased it to go with my Winchester 9422M . . . .

The older New model single sixes had fluted magnum cylinders. I have a 9.5" Stainless Convertible with one such cylinder.
