I was wondering if any of you own a 22a and what your opinons of them are. They look like nice little plinkers but I dont know much about them. I know you can change barrels around like with a model 41.I was thinking of getting one for my woman.Whos been carressing my model forty ones and leturously looking at them and making comments such as I dont need two of them.
This is a very distressing thing for me that I feel maybe a 22 a would cure.
But if they are junk I dont want to waste my money.

They're definitely not junk. The 22A is probably the best gun you can get for the money.

They tolerate most ammo just find and shoot as well as any. Many people consider them to be the basic equivalent to the Model 41.

Accurate, reliable and fun are its best points.

You can sure buy one cheap.I read a few reviews on them and they were realy mixed some said they were very picky with ammo some said they ate any thing.Some said you gotta break them in and they do fine.I figured in here I could get some honest feed back on them.I heard they were as accurate as you can shoot. I think they are ugly as the day is long though and I would definately get her a red dot for it.With a scope or red dot it breaks up that air craft carrier looking scope mount on them.
Thanks for the reply kevets

If aesthetics are part of your firearm pleasure, these come up a little short. But they sure do work well. I have shot a couple of them and both seemed quite satisfactory. Never saw one of them fail to function with any ammo, and the triggers were really decent. fwiw.

I'm also considering a 22a. I've heard lots of good things about them and you can't beat the price.

Sooo many guns on my wish list!

I checked out this gun at Academy today. 22a with 5 1/2 barrel.
Looks like a nice gun! :)

The only thing that surprised me was the weight. It felt heavier than I thought it would be. Seemed solid though.

I'll put it on the list!
