    A .22 Pistol

    Any .22 Pistols that you guys recommend?
    I would like to get the CZ-75 Kadet but it's just so expensive! Is it worth the 1.5k?
    Cheers

    I have the GSG and it's pretty good. Change the ambi safety or knock the sharp edge off and its good to go.

    There's a used Sig at Gunsupplies for @$800
    https://www.gunsupplies.co.nz/used-f.../542-sig-sauer

    and with a suppressor for $950.

    The .22 adaptor kit for $1100 for a CZ75/SP01 is too pricey for my blood.

    Deadeye Dicks have brand new Sig Mosquitos for $600. Deadeye Dicks - Rimfire Pistol

    I've got about 10K+ rounds through mine, works decent enough. It's only 90% the size of a P226, so my thumbs sometimes touch the slide and cause malfunctions. 22 Sigs, GSGs, Chiappas and Walthers are made from cast zinc alloy (potmetal), which is only used for it's cost effectiveness. But then Hi-Point make their 9, 40 and 45 from cast zinc alloy if that says anything.

    If you want a service style plinker I'd get a M&P22. Product: Smith & Wesson Model M&P22 - 12 Rounds
    They have 12 round mags (all the rest have 10), are full sized and nearly identical to centerfire M&Ps, and are made from machined aluminium.
    Petone Gunshop have some on order, but couldn't give me a delivery date when I emailed them. They said they'd retail for around $600.

    If you're not worried about it looking like a service pistol, you couldn't go wrong with any of the Ruger 22s.

    (Hi Points are the worst junk)


    I haven't shot a huge heap of .22 pistols but I like the Ruger 22/45, easy to shoot, similar manual of arms to most centrefire semi-auto pistols (1911 control layout), reliable, easy to get parts etc.

    The 22s (at least Sig and GSG anyway) use 'Zamak 5', while Hi-Points use the weaker 'Zamak 3' and obviously fire much higher pressure ammo, so the 22s aren't as shit as Hi-Points.

    The only thing I don't like about the 22/45 is how the mag inserts at a different angle to the grip, but they are better guns than any of the look-alike 22s.

    Oh yeah, I was just saying that Hi Points are garbage, nothing to do with the .22s. I don't like the GSG .22 1911 clone much. It's sort of airsoft grade.

    The 2nd gen GSG are nicer than 1st. White bright logos are early ones.
