Which one is the best .22 semi-auto handgun ?

Let's settle this once and for all. You can pick only one between Taurus TX22, Ruger Mark IV or Browning Buckmark.

    if the buckmark wasn't a pain in the ass thing to clean and so capricious with the kind of ammo (only winchester M22 makes it cycle properly without damaging anything) and it'll won easily

      I've got a Buckmark (black label) and it cycles pretty much any autoloading ammo I feed it : Federal auto match (white box), Federal value pack (blue box), RWS semi-auto...
      IMO the cleaning part isn't much of an issue, true it's annoying to disassemble, especially the black label because you need to unscrew the under barrel picatinny rail first, but you aren't supposed to disassemble it completely to clean it after every range trip. I just use a bore snake with some balistol in the barrel, a nylon brush on the chamber and bolt face, and that's it. I can easily shoot 1000 rounds before needing to clean it more seriously.
      My biggest gripe with it are that the magazines are pretty expensive

      My dad and I own all 3.

      Mk4 is the easiest to clean, and has the best aftermarket support. Out of the box, it's mediocre. The trigger is nothing to write home about and it is much harder to rack the bolt since the grooves are so small. The bolt lock is also really sensitive, so if you have an aggressive grip, you may end up not having the last round hold open. These can be easily fixed with about $300 of upgrades from Volquartsen.

      The Buckmark is gtg out the box, has a good grip angle and material, and a very good trigger. It's also much easier to rack the slide. It's a bitch to clean, which I find very annoying since it will get dirty very quickly.

      The TX22 is unironically a good gun. I've never had reliability issues with it, it's super easy to field strip, and has a good trigger.

      If I had a strict budget and didn't care about optics, I'd get the TX22. If I'd rather pay a premium to not have to deal with upgrades and like cleaning my guns, I'd get the Buckmark. If I have an endless pile of money and am willing to upgrade a 22 and won't question if it makes any sense, get the Mk4 22/45.

      My favorite is the Mk4. After a trigger, bolt, and thumb rest upgrade, I consistently stack holes and average a 1/4" group at 7 yards.

      you guys are over exaggerating how much of a bitch it is to clean a buckmark. yeah its a bit harder than the other 2 but still miles above a ruger mk2 or mk3. its not that bad. it being hard to clean is it simply being an older design that hasnt been updated. when the only options were ruger mk3 or buckmark nobody ever mentioned buckmark cleaning as a negative.

        Yeah true enough. Before Mark IV, Buckmark was leading.

    I like my mk4. .22 is kinda boring, you spend more time loading mags and clearing malfunctions from shitty ammo than shooting but the has less recoil than an airsoft gun and it groups really nice. I like the one button disassembly too. I am tempted to put a 5.56 flash can on it. Gonna take it squirrel hunting in a couple weeks

    Tx22 no joke and not even a question. Capacity and reliability king that isn't a pain in the ass to disassemble.

      Can you please stop posting this hideous abomination of shapes and angles that is your SW22? I'm sick of seeing this bullshit. The SW22 already looks bad but somehow you made it even worse. Why the fuck are you mixing 3 patterns on this thing?? Grip looks topheavy, but also you're mixing hexagons with small rectangles (carbon fiber), and then the can has long rectangles? Pick a theme retard!

    Ruger. It's reliable and the heft makes it feel like a real gun. Aside from that the Sig P322 gets an honorable mention.

    Mark IV was my choice, but TX22 was close second. Would buy both if possible.

      Why don't you just spit out that your first choice is absolute crap?

        Because its not true. Close second is still second, Mark IV is still peak .22 - durability, reliability, availability, aesthetic -, while Taurus is still some brazilian dirt brand, even when built in the US. I still want to buy a TX22 tho, no shame.

    I like my MKIV 22/45 but installing the VQ/tandemkross upgrades I put in it was a rat fuck with my huge ape fists - trying to stack shit on top of pins without needle nose pliers (i lost mine and didnt feel like buying new ones) was like the worlds most frustrating game of jenga. If you aren't rat fuck retarded like me it'll be way easier and after everything it's one of my absolute most favorite guns to shoot suppressed - but if I didn't want to go through the hassle/extra expense I'd have just bought a TX22 competition and called it a day.

      I wish the sr22 fit my hands. Loved it until I tried shooting it, had to hold the grip with a weird eagle claw hold because my hand was too big to pull the trigger

    Why is the Taurus so popular? Isn't it just another Trainer gun like all the .22 from CZ, Sig or FN? What's so special about it that you compare it next to target pistols?

      For whatever reason it's basically the best handgun taurus makes. Good semi auto designs for 22lr is something that evades R&D to this day. Even 10/22s are only mostly reliable and it's the most popular 22lr firearm ever made. As others have mentioned, you could have a $1200 Mark IV and it'll be beaten out of reliability hy thr TX22 almost every time.

    kel-tec cp33 with a can.
    The thing has zero recoil, is hearing safe and holds 33 rounds in the handle.
    I was concerned about reliability out of the quad stack magazine but mine has never once had a malfunction.

      Any good folding braces available for this? Seems like a great setup

      • 2 weeks ago

        If you look at the first picture I posted you'll see two small steel pieces sticking out. They actually have a slit in them. This brace adapter slips over and the screws tighten down. It telescoping, not folding. I have no idea if this gun meets atf criteria under the new opinion or not but I run a cheap and heavy can on mine. There is absolutely no recoil. I mean all muzzle movement comes from your trigger finger and because it has an internal bolt, the sights are fixed too. I just don't see any reason to get a brace for it. You don't need to put a lot of rounds on target quickly.

          I've been leaning toward getting a ruger because muh aesthetic while considering the keltec because muh capacity, but that pic is really making me rethink how ugly I think they are.
