    I have a Walther I fell out love with.I need to replace it though.
    I already have a Buckmark hunter and a Ruger MK III hunter.
    I'm looking at the S&W22-a1? 1A? target and would really like to find a Hamerelli Trailside long barreled pistol (5+")
    Maybe a S&W 41 that isn't $800? (haha)
    Not sure I could ever like the Beretta Neos

    Which guns am I missing? Doesn't need to be a new issue either

    (I'll get a single 9 besides this anyway,someday)

    Thanks
    Mike

    No question- High Standard.
    Built out of real steel in the US. Parts are becoming a little hard to find, but still available. Should be able to get a NICE setup for well under $400, and an honest 'shooter' for around $275 if you look around.

    Any reason? I love mine and it performed well in the Ruger Rimfire Challenge in October. Have you fired one?

    I like the Ruger mark IIs. My favorite is a blued model with the 6-7/8" heavy tapered barrel. Second would be my SS model with the 10" bull barrel.

    Colt Woodsmans are accurate guns.

    A Ruger mk III Hunter is on my list. Just other things get in the way.

    You mentioned the Ruger single nine. I believe they have the fiber optic sight. I have a MK III 22/45 bull barrel with the FO front & V-notch rear. May just be me but that setup isn't as accurate as standard adjustable (target) sights for me.

    If you find a great .22 target gun post a picture!

    Forgot to say: I'd love a S&W maodel 41 too. But when the price gets up above $800 I start thinking rifle. :)

    Don't think I gave a range. But I had the 48?, the 22mag and it wasn't much fun having to clean it all the time. Tolerances were so tight,after 10 rounds you couldn't open it.
    I should have said semi auto
    Thanks for the responses

    They're a little spendy, but super nice. Also check out the Volquartsen website.....

    Sell your Buck Mark, Ruger & Walther, buy a S&W 41 and be done with it. The 617 is nice but at that price you might as well get the 41. Just my $0.02

    I have a Neos too and it's a great little shooter. I like the style although I can see why others would not.
    You might try one out though before eliminating it from your list.

    The big negatives with the Trailside is that the design used to be Hammerli, then went to Sig.....during that transfer the problems started popping up. Last I heard, Hammerli is now owned by Walther. The Trailside pistol went the way of the dodo, so any parts you want are aftermarket from here on out.

    What about a Excel Arms MP 22 magnum it seems cool!
    Other than that the 41 is a dream gun expecaly with the optics rail on them now, but I just can't justify the price. I know you can buy a nice Kimber or Anschutz rifle for that.

    Excel Arms .22 Magnum Model MP-22 Accelerator Auto Pistol
