I believe Ruger makes the best overall .22 pistols. If you want something that eats up practically any type of .22 ammo, I suggest a revolver where it spits anything out from high velocity, standard, sub-sonic, and even the Colibri (no powder) regardless of ammo manufacturer.

Ruger Mark II/III (very sturdy, not super accurate out of the box but can be tuned)
Browning buckmark (a bit more accurate but not as durable as a Ruger, also very tunable)
S&W 41 (the cadillac, awesome out of the box but $$$)

Those are the best...conversion kit uppers are nice in that they replicate your firearm more closely, but they generally are not very reliable.

Picked up my M&P 22LR on Thursday and cleaned all the excess grease off and took it out today to test several different 22LR ammo. I used the following 3 types of ammo brand and velocity and not a single issue. Worked great!! I love this pistol. I appreciate everyone's help/input.

Waiting for my FFL to call that my M&P22 arrived. Can't wait for my new plinker. Fell in love with plinking after i got the buckmark. But after i mounted a scope, i got too easy. My new m&p should be a nice new challenge

Default Best 22LR Pistol

My personal best is GSG 1911. I have not experienced any malfunction.


One feature from it that I like is I can dry fire it all day without a concern by adding a piece of rubber on to the firing pin where the hammer strike.


As far as accuracy, the group shown below is good enough for me at 7 yards

Talking Browning Buckmark Camper

Which exact Manufacture/Brand should I purchase that gives me a reliable pistol at a reasonable price to practice with and plink around with no restriction on the 22LR ammo type? Figured it will also be a starter pistol for my wife to get comfortable with shooting.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Browning Buckmark in any model you can get your hands on. My Browning Buckmark gobbled up just about every brand of .22LR that I've fed it. As long as you keep it clean & lubed, it won't fail you. It hasn't failed me, and I've treated it like a lawnmower...hahaha! The Browning Buckmark Camper is a very economical and reliable pistol. Check it out. --1911ShooterPhil

My vote is for the Ruger MKIII - great gun and never fails.

Same with the Ruger MKIII, I did a test and went over 3000 rounds without cleaning it and still 100 percent reliable with all ammo from Thunderbolts to Minimags. The design just works, and with the spotty availability of .22 lr you want your gun to be able to shoot any ammo you can get your hands on.
