I'm thinking about adding a polymer 22lr pistol to the mix. 4 years ago, I was polymer free, now, most of my guns are polymer and I think I'd like to round out the collection w/ a poly 22.
So, what are my choices? Walther & Beretta? Anyone else? Any 1st hand experience, pro's con's? Any help is appreciated in this...

Another vote for the Ruger 22/45. Mine has yet to miss a beat and is accurate as all get out......when I don't fall for the baser charms of let em fly as fast as you can.

I have nothing but praise for the Ruger .22s.

I really like the feel of the Beretta NEOs but have never shot one nor do I know it's reputation.

I have a Beretta NEOS, and it's a great little gun. Some people don't care too much for the design, but I like it. The NEOS has proven reliable and pretty accurate.

Rumor has it that Beretta will come out with a carbine conversion for the NEOS soon.

I like my 22/45 a lot.

hmmmmm...:scrutiny: a NEOS carbine??? That might negate the 10/22 project I had planned for later in the year :scrutiny:

The Neos looks way cool and I really want one, but I'm not sold on the grip angle. I just got a P22 a few weeks ago. The only thing I regret about it is not having bought one sooner.

I love my stainless 22/45. No problems at all.

Yet another vote for the 22/45. Local shops have them for $225-$235. I have the blue 5" bull barrel model. 15,000 rounds and counting....

lendsringer,
How does your Neos shoot? How is the trigger?

I looked at one for my gal 'cause she thought it was downright purty, but I did a dry-fire (with a spent case) at a store, and it was a bit....heavy.

The Walther P22 with extended barrel/compensator? looks cool enough, but the standard P22 with suppressor is way cooler. :cool:

The 22/45 is a great gun at a great price! Wouldn't mind picking up a second with a much longer barrel than the 4 1/2" that I have now.

It's plenty accurate, and the trigger is decent. It's not a Browning Medalist or anything, but I can hit shotgun shells off a berm at 15 yards with it.

I really like the Browning and Ruger 22s, but I got to handle a Walther P22 at the gunshop the other day and boy that pistol felt awsome! Very light and ergonomic.

I have no idea how they shoot or if they work, but see if you can find one to handle and do some research. It sure looks like a nice pistol.

2500 rounds and counting since September.
The only malfunctions have been dud rounds that didn't fire on 2nd 3rd and 4th attempts.
I am completely pleased with this arm.
