It seems most of them aren't built to the same standards as their larger counterparts. However, there are a few that seem still worth the money: -Phoenix HP22. It sounds about as good as the rest of the more popular compact .22s (needs something fixed every few thousand rounds, and tends to only really like heavier, high velocity rounds). -Bersa Firestorm .22. It also sounds pretty good. The Walther P22 is pretty popular and is overall probably pretty good, but it doesnt sound like it is worth the Price Tag. Though, I think it is the best looking of all of the pistols in question. The Sig Mosquito is about the same price as the P22 but seems even less reliable overall, though I also like the way it looks. The Taurus PT22 doesn't sound all that reliable, as I keep reading stories of people having to send them in over and over, and eventually just giving up and dumping them. Sadly, it seems the only really reliable autoloading .22LR pistols are the target pistols, but I want something smaller, or at the very least something that doesn't look like a toy / target pistol. What do you guys think? I dont mind spending upwards of $300 if it means I get a reliable, non-target-looking .22 pistol, but so far I havent found anything. Hell, I might even consider a similarly-price .22LR revolver if it had the reliability I am looking for and at least 8 rounds.
