I am planning on buying a new .22 pistol, and I am trying to decide which to go with. As for background... I recently sold ALL of my pistols except for an old Colt Agent that I absolutely couldn't part with and a G19.

I have always shot 1911's, and so my first choice for a .22 was the 22/45. Now that I am shooting most of my rounds through the Glock I am curious which .22 will be the best match.

My main issue is the grip angle, can anyone who primarily shoots Glocks tell me which grip angle they feel is the best match for the Glock between the mkIII, 22/45, and buckmark?

.22 conversion for the glock would be the best match.

None of these really match the Glock grip angle. The MKIII is, if anything, even more pronounced (more like a Luger), the 22/45 is more 1911-like by design and intent, with the Buckmark somewhere in between. If you want a .22 that points and handles like your Glock, get a .22 conversion unit for it. It will simulate everything but the weight (the slide is aluminum) and, of course, the recoil. The Advantage Arms unit is in short supply at this time, however.

the best training aid would be the Advantage Arms .22lr conversion kit. conversion kits allow you to not only have all the controls in exactly the same place, but also allow you to train with the exact trigger.

that's what i did when i was looking for a trainer for my Sig 9mm, i was just lucky that Sig offered a factory conversion kit

We have these in the shop and i took one to the range with the other instructors. It seems to be quite an accurate and decent 22. We kept one to hand for new shooters to handle due to its form factor being Glock like. We didnt conduct lots of testing on it but its easily as accurate as the short barrel P22s we have.

Now you all have peeked my interest on this pistol. If it's that accurate it should be a good plinker that I can practice with and do so cheaply.

The ISSC M22 is hammer fired DA/SA, not striker fired.

The ISSC M22 also needs quality high-velocity ammo.
Otherwise it's reliability is less than that of the SIG Mosquito & Walther P22.

Friend bought one, had reliability issues with it. Sold it to get a Walther P22, which has been more reliable than the ISSC M22. Reviews on other forums, also indicate that it needs to use quality high-velocity ammo (CCI Mini-Mag and CCI stingers seem to work best) in order to have decent reliability.
