    Hi Standard if you can find one. I had a Supermatic Citation once but foolishly sold it. A great accurate 22.

    Colt Woodsman, er , WoodsMEN. The match target in the upper left is the sweetest shooter ive ever had the pleasure of shooting.

    Found one in my LGS a couple of years ago. I thought it was a steal at $275

    WOW! That's like a trip in the Way Back Machine! I always wanted a High Standard Target .22 but I was usually on a Ruger Mk. II budget!

    How does it shoot? There was one sitting at my LGS for months before my buddy finally took it home, but he hasnt shot it yet.

    Haven't seen one of those in a long time! There use to be a gun shop that carried Llamas (among other makes like S&W, Colt, and Browning), and the owner use to have them advertised in Shotgun News for like a little over dealer cost. They were awfully tempting at those prices but back then I didn't have the discretionary funds to buy all that many guns.

    I shoot my Nelson 22 conversion on a 1911 frame more than any other pistol I own. I have built a dedicated lower for it, using a Caspian frame. So I didn’t have to swap anything, I built a twin to it, one with red dot sight the other with irons. Both are extremely accurate and eat any ammo I put through them.

    All are great but the Ruger standard has accounted for rabbits, squirrels, turkeys, and quail.

    They are a bit finicky...you have to use standard velocity ammo and they should be solids. Keep it clean. Magazines are hard to find...I have only 3.

    I did not learn to shoot a handgun until I practiced Bullseye with my High Standard Victor and as a Life Member of SNM-Sons of Neanderthal Man-nothing beats the Feel of Steel.

    I did somewhat the same thing with a TacSol 2211 upper on an old Essex frame I had picked up many years ago. The TacSol unit fit perfectly and runs great with Wolf Match Target and CCI Standard Velocity ammo.

    Those S&W in the 422,622, 22XX (stainless) are nice.I picked this one up about 1984-85.

    I love the magazine bumper pads. Any info on them? I'd love to find a couple of them.

    Can't go wrong with any of the S&Ws. Here is an inexpensive, well made, .22 of mine. Made by Unique (France) for JC Higgins, model 85. It's all steel construction and has adjustable sights.

    The bumper pads are the 1911 type. The screws will have to be shortened otherwise mag capacity is reduced to 8-9 rounds depending on length of the screw.
