    I'd prefer something not made out of old pots and pans.

    :hsughno: just answering your question.

    But really, I don't know if there are any decent ones out there. This is the only one I have ever seen, my grandfather gave it to me a while ago.

    AMT made a semi-auto pistol in .22 mag.

    A pawn shop local to me had one for years. Hell it may still be there.

    that's a fair bit to pay for a .22 pistol

    and why are they not California compliant?

    it's a .22 for fucks sake!

    The .17 HMR is the one that is not available in Cali. .22 WMR should be fine.

    "This semi-automatic pistol is now available in .17HMR** and .22 WMR.
    ** NOT FOR SALE IN CALIFORNIA"

    I think it's just too new to be on the approved list.

    No love for the Ruger Single Six...

    Yeah, I figure that those .22WMR hollowpoints will leave a really nasty welt, maybe even cause something to bleed a little when shot at.

    As for .22WMR autoloaders, there's the AMT / High Standard AutoMAG II, the previously-referenced Accelerator Pistol, and some other model that's evidently harder to come by than weapons-grade plutonium.

    Probably far more .22WMR rifles out there than pistols.

    North American Arms makes several different models of their Mini Revolver in .22WMR, .17, and .22LR.

    Good luck finding one and use the right ammunition.


    Edit: 30 rounds magazine FTW!

    I just shot the Single Six. It's almost satisfying shooting the magnum rounds - you get a bang-like crack and a kick that says hey - I just might have enough oomph to actually hurt something. Fire .22LR and you could almost miss it since the mass of the gun soaks up all that recoil.

    But then you go to replace the magnum rounds you gleefully expended because they came with the loaner and you realze just how costly that .22WMR really is. $8-$10 per box of 50 is common. I pay less than that for small quantities of FMJ 9mm. It really sucks compared to .22LR - the $0.01-per-round munition.

    I guess that .22WMR has its uses - mainly when .17HMR isn't cutting it against the tougher varmints and you want something with better KE than .22LR - but I can see why it's not so popular.
