Default Your Favorite .22LR, What should I get?

Looking to pick up a 22 just for some fun at the range since ammo for it is so cheap, I was looking at the GSG -5, but found out they are hard to find lol.
I also don't want to just get a .22 upper.
What .22 do you have that you enjoy?
What would you recommend? Open to rifle or pistol.

M&P 15-22 (have not had a problem yet).

Ruger Mark III

I like my on roster Buckmark, but it is second for a semi.

I also like my Ruger Single Ten.

If you don't already have one the Ruger 10/22 is a classic.
I think there are more of them in America than almost anything else and with good reason, plenty of accessories and things like custom aftermarket triggers etc.

I know other people prefer the marlin 60 but there just isn't the amount of aftermarket equipment that just bolts on, even though I do believe those are fine rifles in their own right.

the Ruger 10-22's I have shot always have been more accurate than they needed to be and are just the perfect thing for fun plinking in the wood, casual target shooting at the range, and even bringing home small game or if necessary pest removal at the farm.

If you're going semi auto pistol I like the Browning Buckmark.

But I actually prefer revolvers when you're going to a .22 handgun, just in the slim chance that they is a dud, which is more common in rimfire than centerfire cartridges. Not that that happens to frequently anymore with modern manufacturing of ammunition.

Another factor is some .22 semi auto pistols can be finicky on what brands they shoot reliably where almost all .22 revolvers will shoot any brand including the low noise /no gunpowder Aguilla cartridges.

My favorite .22? I couldn't tell you for sure. I do have an affinity for gallery guns and the beat to sheet Winchester 1906 that was my grandfather is definitely one of my favorites.

You haven't really given anyone enough info on what your requirements are yet. Are you looking for a bolt action pistol? a belt fed, semi auto rifle? a niche gun that looks like a centerfire? a rimfire that operates just like it's centerfire counterpart? an expensive revolver? a cheap revolver? an oddity? a bolt action rifle? a break action rifle? a falling block? a lever action? a pump action? or ?????

I find my heritage single action with the 9" barrel very fun for $200
Ruger 10/22 with a summons scope is also fun and very cheap

I'm interested in semi auto, I do like the thought of a semi auto rimfire that operates like the a centerfire, oddity would be cool as long as it's reliable and doesn't carry a big price tag, I'm also very interested in rimfire clones.
Sorry it's so vague I'm Not too picky on this, just open to ideas so I can make a good decision before I purchase.

I have my 10-22 my Dad bought me in 1977 (still have the receipt) and a 15-22. Both are fun. Wife and I both seem to prefer the 15-22 for an unknown reason.

Well, if you want a semi look at Rugers. 10-22s are probably the best choice for 99% of people who are just looking for a .22 semi auto. They are inexpensive, reliable, will last a couple of lifetimes and there is the most aftermarket support for them. If you want a pistol, the same holds true for their MK series include the 22-45s.

I haven't seen many high quality .22lr look-a-likes. However, there are some guns that are truly rimfire counterparts of their centerfire cousins. The WASR22 is an example of a real AK in rimfire whereas, most other rimfire AKs don't operate anything like an AK does. They just have an AKish look. There are also a couple rimfire Lugers around that function like a Luger instead of just looking like one. As far as the GSG5 goes, it's not a gun that is going to last. It's mad with pot metal. It does have a certain cool factor. I bought one when they first came out and like it for what it is. However, I have plenty of other .22s and knew what I was buying.

My S&W M&P 15-22 is the most fun .22LR rifle I have. My Sig Sauer 1911-22 (with upgrades and trigger job) is the most fun .22LR handgun I have.

You get to do the HK slap, it's fun, looks tacticool, not picky with ammo, and rock solid reliable. At a time it was priced really cheap at Big 5 although I heard it is hard to find nowadays. From a CA perspective, the 10 round and 25 round magazines look identical.

If I was going to get a 10/22, I'd get the takedown and then install Magpul's Hunter X-22 Takedown chassis. Dunno how reliable the takedown version is compared to the regular one.

The Browning Buckmark is incredible. You will not regret it.

OP I would stay away from the GSG-5 but i'm open to sell mine... I would recommend a 10/22 Marlin 795 or if you want a pistol a Browning Buckmark.

Favorite .22 : Mossberg Palomino 402. Lever action fun with .22 price. Gotta agree with 10/22 or marlin 60. Black Friday will also have some deals and you can buy one for about $200.

Most definitely 10/22. They are so damned versatile you can do as much as your cash will allow you to do. I have 6 in various chassis companies. 4 are .22lr and 2 in .17 mach2. All are aluminum assault style chassis except for 1. It's in a custom wood stock polished receiver and full float stainless .17mach2 barrel. All seem to never to be finished. I reckon that's the fun and interesting thing.

My 22 is my Marlin Model60 SN and soon to be taken is the marlin XT22TR TUBE FEED. I'm sorry but this is something that I can't help myself to it.

Tube-fed lever action. About the only legal way to carry 10+ rounds. I've got a Browning BL-22 and it is a great all-around rifle. Carries 15 LR or, IIRC, 21 shorts.

Love my 10/22 takedown, it's my favorite gun in my collection by far.

Virtually no recoil
Highly customizable
REALLY fun to shoot!
