Pretty much what the title says above. I have my own opinions about trigger action, accuracy and availability of parts/mods. But I can't really advise him because I've never shot the S&W 22A. Good deal? Crappola? Somewhere in between? Looks inexpensive, and I think that's probably his biggest motivator. Are there better .22 semi-auto pistols at the same general price point that he should look at instead?
