    I like to collect and shoot pistols that come in .22 rimfire versions and centerfire versions.

    About a year and a half ago I started to compile a list of these guns,,,
    With the help of a lot of people at another forum,,,
    I was able to compile this list.

    Can any of you good folk add any other handguns to this list?


    Astra: Constable in .380 ACP & Constable in .22 LR.

    Beretta: Cheetah (84, 85, 86 series) in .380 & Cheetah 87 in .22LR. (I own the 85/87 pair).

    Beretta: Model 70 in .32 & Model 71 in .22 LR.

    Beretta: Bobcat in .25 ACP/.32 ACP & Bobcat in .22 LR.


    • Chia Pet,,, eerrr,,, Chiappa model 92 in .22 LR.

    Colt: S.A.A. & Colt Peacemaker .22

    Colt: New Frontier & Colt New Frontier .22

    Colt: Bisley & Colt Bisley .22 (Never a factory offering..but popular conversion in 20's thru 50's)

    Daewoo: Model DH380 in .380acp and the Model DP52 in .22 LR.

    EAA: Witness Combo 9mm/.22 LR. Sold with both a 9mm and a .22 LR upper.

    Ruger: Single-Six in .32 H&R Magnum & Single-Six in .22 LR.

    Ruger: SP-101 in .38/.357 & SP-101 in .22LR,,,
    This is the old style with full lug barrels and non-adjustable sights

    Ruger: SP-101 in .38/.357 & SP-101 in .22LR,,,

    Sig: SIG P229 in 9mm/.357 Sig/.40 S&W & P229 Classic 22 in .22 LR.

    There is an interesting thing about these .22 Sigs,,,
    Sig sells the SIG SAUER X-CHANGE Kit™ conversion kit for all three of the Classic 22's,,,
    That kit converts the .22 pistol up to shoot the appropriate centerfire cartridges.

    The S&W Model 17, or at least the version I have, also matches, in external dimensions, the S&W Model 19, which I also have.

    Iver Johnson TP22 and TP25. This gun was also made by American Arms and Erma As the PX22 and PX25.

    Beretta 948 came in .22lr and .380 and maybe .32, I'm not sure.

    Are the Walther P22 and PK380 close enough to be the same gun?
