ummm ... what revolver is it?I'm looking into pickup up a .22 pistol. I am not real happy with the revolver I "inherited". Anybody have any thoughs or suggestions to share.
Ahh ... the 9 forty-niner ... those H&R are good plinkers ... you'll find very few 22 revolvers with decent DA triggers barring Smiths ... thus, you'll be well-served by getting a Buck Mark unless you spring the $ for a Smith 617.I've got a Harrington and Richardson 9 shot 949 revolver. The trigger is way too stiff as a double action. I have to cock it every shot and shoot it SA.
There is also the classic Ruger 22's (MKII & 22/45) ... these are good durable pistols (very sturdy build) but the ones I've tried did not have a trigger that was as good as my Buck Mark ... very crisp with little to no "slack". Browning offers many models from the budget Camper & Standard models (probably what you're looking for) up to Target models. In all, expect to pay ~$250 for one of these at a gun shop ... you could probably do better on the Net but Buck Marks are harder to find than Rugers so you'll need to do some searching ... I know Davidson's has em (http://www.galleryofguns.com).Extra $$ is not an option. Half the reason for getting a .22 is being able to shoot it dirt cheap. I will be looking at the Browning Buck Marks.
Very true ... now if only the triggers were as good as the Steyrs then they'd be perfect.One advantage of the Ruger Mark I,II,III series pistols is the grip angle is almost the same as the Steyr M and S series.
Rails can be purchased for as little as $30. There is one nice one available that merely replaces the Buck Mark sight base and allow you a cheap way to add a scope/red dot. For more info, search the Browning forum over at RimfireCentral.comThe plus side with the Trailside is that it has a built in rail, you would have to add one on with the Buckmark.
