Hey folks, Im looking for a cheap .22LR fun gun pistol this year. Maybe something thats hi-cap capable. So far I've seen Intratec-22s that have reliability issues or the Ruger Charger which is too big for what I'm looking for. I would get a Charger if I could find a custom with a more compact stock and shorter barrel or mod parts. But everything I see would nearly be the cost of a new Charger all told. The gsg-5 is too large as well for what Im looking for. Ideally $3-500. Any thoughts?

GSG-5 or GSG 5pk pistol




Grendel 30 or Keltec PMR-30 if you want to move up to 22mag

Love this gun. Fun, comfortable, accurate. I've nailed jackrabbits at 150 yrds with cci stingers. And can rapid ring a steel tank half size a propane tank at 100 yards. All with a red dot. More fun than my ar15 mostley cause rimfires are so cheap to shoot all day long. Ruger barrels have good accuracy for a ten inch barrel. My favorite gun.

On the archangel body would the forend be removable or be easily subject to removal and modification without compromising the receiver shroud? If I went with the charger and an eventually modified archangel body I would like to use a shorter barrel (tactical solutions 5.5" barrel). My objective is for a compact .22LR firearm with hi-capacity magazines that I could use one handed or in a standard handgun grip.

Check out the S&W M&P 15 22lr pistol cheaper than charger with archangel kit and looks better too. I have the rifle version and they don't jam like the other ar knockoffs. Ps avoid colt, unless you like clearing jams. Don't know about their 1911 just colt ar rimfires...

Thanks a lot guys! After reading this thread I spent the last two hours researching a .22lr pistol. Here is what I have narrowed down my list to: Colt Goverment .22, Ruger SR22 and a Walther P22.

This gun will strictly be for practice/target shooting. The reason for my choices are as follows. The main choice behing the Colt is that it is a 1911 chambered in .22 and I believe it will help me with familiarise myself with the 1911 (possible .45 1911 purchase in the near future). The same applies for the Ruger and Walther since I already own a G17 Gen4.

I chose not to go with a .22 conversion kit for one simple reason. The kit itself costs almost just as much as these three examples and I would much rather have one gun set aside for this purpose alone. I do not see the point in having one gun for a dual purpose when two seperate guns can accomplish the same goal for the same amount of money.

My next line of thought goes to the .22 ammo itself. I have noticed there is a huge market out there to choose from. In a previous thread I had written when I first joined I was concerned with a "break in period". I took the advice of a poster here and some friends and put 124 gr. (I recall buying a box of higher pressure ammo but don't recall what kind) ammo downrange through my G17. Is there any recommended ammo in regards to this or does the same scenario fall into place? From what I have seen so far, people recommended to me a few boxes of the more expensive CCI ammo and than just switching to you value pack 500 round box you can pick up for $12.

Any insight on the gun/ammo I have spoken of, good or bad would be highly appreciated. Heck, even if I forgot to mention any gun that you guys love please feel free to share!
