    I've never fired a Woodsman Match Target but have an possible opportunity to buy either 4.5 or 6 inch 2nd series. They both feel nicely balanced. I will not be shooting much over 20-25 yards. Plinking only; no bullseye matches. Would appreciate any recommendations, Regards, Bill

    Great gun Bill, in any barrel length. Since its a range gun, I would opt
    for the longer barrel~!:D

    Whoops... actually 3rd Series

    just realized these are 3rd series as the mag release is on the base of the grip. Are these still quality products? Best I recall is that the 4.5 inch SN is approximately 7XXX S and the 6 inch is 14X,XXX S. Regards, Bill

    If you're going to add a scope to the gun, get the four-inch model for the lighter weight. If you're going to shoot it with iron sights, you'll probably do somewhat better with the longer barrel, which delivers a longer sight radius.

    Assuming the guns are in good mechanical condition, barrel length will have very little impact upon accuracy: four inches is enough to stabilize a standard velocity .22 long rifle bullet.

    Yes, third model guns are very nice also.

    As it happens, I have shot Woodsmans, including Match Target models, for several years, and find them to be routinely accurate and fun to shoot.

    Have fun!
