.22 Around $150



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm looking for a .22 pistol that will be reliable and last a long time. I'm new to pistols but have been shooting for over 20 years. I'm looking for pistol preferably a semi-auto for around $150. Are revolvers cheaper? What are your suggestions? Thanks

If you look long enough, you'll probably find a well used, not abused Ruger MkII, 22/45 or Browning Buckmark. Both are very reliable and accurate, but with a different fit and feel. I have a buddy that loves the 22/45 but I prefer the fit of the Buckmark. Patience is the key here.

I agree with libertyman on the used 22/45 ruger .You might be able to find a used HS sentinel revolver for 120-150.

I think you're better off w/an auto, for that kind of $.

The better quality revolvers (think S&W K-22) seem to hold their value extremely well.

My vote goes for a used Ruger MKI/II. 22/45s seem to go a little cheaper- I've seen basic models on sale in MN for $200 new.

Like Libertyman said, patience is the key.

Good luck, there's lots worse duty than looking for .22 pistols!

For around $100 you can get a Phoenix Arms HP-22.
Not too bad a gun, I bought one in 1995 (my very first gun), and have had great luck, few problems. Mine likes Stingers. The HP-22 can be bought as a Rangemaster kit with accessories like a longer barrel and some cleaning stuff.

Their service department is first class, with the few problems I've had.
They replaced a pair of grips for free after I melted them with brake cleaner. Oops.

Maybe not what you're looking for, but the price range you suggested may limit you on a new gun.

One of the guys on our pistol team showed me a blued MKII with a heavy tapered target barrel that he just bought. It looked like brand new. He paid $150 for it. They are out there if you have some patience. I remember the owner of a gunshop telling me a few years ago to stop back and check out the consignment guns that were sure to show up after the January and February credit card bills showed up. He said lots of people come in trying to sell him guns to pay down the Christmas overspending.........chim
