    The 22s have to get a lot more popular with the way ammo prices are going. The problem is that is cost as much to build a good 22 as it does to build a larger gun. Doesn't seem right to pay so much for a good plinker. I have an old AMC Lightning that I don't care much for so I bought the 22 conversion for my CZ75. I really do deserve a dedicated 22 though.

    My hands down favorite 22 pistol is my S&W 41. Very nice to look at, feels in hand as nice as that Sig 210 and accurate as the day is long. Mine is an early one 1973 with the cocking indicator pin on the back.
    There's one on auction now that is got some serious pock marks on one side and clean on the other, kind of tempting as it's a lot less than they generally go for but still a lot at like 800. Even though it's rough looking I bet it's still a great shooter.
    I'd like to find a 5" top end to be able to swap.

    I've not known anyone that is so excited with their later vintage M41. I've literally learned three new bad words from members at my range that tried to make them work. I had an early 80's that was sorta ok after the extractor tweaking nonsense. I learned that from the Federal ammo folks after I complained to them that their ammo was no good. They set me straight with with full illustrated instructions on jimmying the extractor to make it reliable.

    My fav .22 is my MKll with the full Volquartson treatment. Sweetheart.

    I've never had an issue. Never tweaked anything on the extractor. Maybe I'm lucky it's an early one or perhaps it was already tweaked or didn't need tweaking before I got it.
    I have a 3rd model Colt Match Target that aggravates the heck out of me. It shoots a round ejects and feeds a new round fine but doesn't reset the striker. So it a shoot rack shoot. I replaced the recoil spring which didn't seem to improve anything. I'm not done, I love it and it was my favorite until the 41 came along.

    I am not blessed with a S&W 41, nor a Sig 210 (although, man, maybe I should change that). But, I have had the opportunity to play with the new TX22 Competition from, yes, Taurus.

    It is pretty impressive, and a small fraction of the cost of the Sig. It is one of those pistols everybody seems able to pick up and pleasantly surprise themselves with how well they just shot.

    If you use a reflex type of sight, it bolts right to the barrel and all of that stays stationary. The factory mags are 16 rounds, and there are extensions available for the mags. I do have .22s., a few Rugers, even a Keltec CP33 (which doesn't work as well for me).

    Anyway, they are worth checking into if you are looking for a tournament worthy pistol that doesn't break the bank.

    But you do have a lovely S&W 686 (not plus). Your a lucky man. Send me that Shield sight and I'll hang it on my Canik for trial and evaluation.
    Thus far I've not been smitten with the red dot craze on hand guns but apparently they really work. My entire old department will transition to them as soon as they can secure ammo. They are hoping for mid year but ammo's tough right now.

    I did hang one on my AR and I get along with it fine, have flip up irons in case it fails. Also put a magnifier on it which helps immensely on the longer shots.

    Congrats, they are sharp looking guns. And for some of us, what's not to like about a .45?

    That is not a very pretty pistol. But I know it is a fine shooter. I think it was designed by the Bolsheviks?
