    ruger mk2/mk3

    p22 isnt really a marksmen type of pistol. not super accurate, but accurate enough to be a fun plinker. and it is like 75% in size to the p99 with the same features. cool gun. i think i might pick one up

    I'm limited to autopistols but in my experience Ruger MKIII >>>> P22 for acc. YMMV.

    I havn't shot a mosquito yet though.

    Edit: Browning Buckmark is pretty accurate also.

    mosquito is great, but there's not much that will beat a ruger. The mosquito is more than accurate enough for dicking around though (more accurate than I am) :dunno:

    I just picked up a Ruger 22/45 w/4" bull barrel for $219 at Gander Mtn. Haven't shot it yet, but seems like it will be a fun & accurate little pistol.

    Ruger 22/45 MKIII

    Same as the regular Ruger MKIII's, but the grip angle and controls are similar to "real" guns like the 1911. I'm getting one if my friggen FFL dealer would return my damn calls.

    For the Ruger I just picked up, I also bought a BSA 42mm red dot for it. I'm debating on taking it back though.

    Ruger or Browning Buckmark...

    Both have a good aftermarket selection of new barrels, triggers, grips, etc.

    I wouldn't consider the P22 an accurate target pistol. Plinking it what it's for.

    ruger mkII's seem to be the general best buy for .22 target pistols. ive got a slabside model and its awesome...thinkin about getting a volquartsen trigger/sear for it but honestly, the factory trigger on it was actually pretty damn nice....debating whether the 50 bux for the volk parts will make any huge difference

    the marks are crazy expensive tho comapred to the walther.

    $300 for a .22 is tempting.

    A Ruger 22/45 Mark III is under ~$275 at most gun shops.

    It really depends on which model you are looking at. The blued 4-7/8" tapered barrel MkII/III usually costs less than a P22. If you are looking at the stainless Hunter models with target sights and wood grips then yea, those are pricey.

    I think you need to ask yourself if you want a target gun to get everything in a dime sized group at 50 yards, or if you just want a normal accuracy gun that shoots cheap ammo.
