This is a fun plinker, very good price. I have a couple Rugers, a Taurus, and this .22 and they are all fun and relatively accurate. This gun has a nice feel and heft, although the grips feel a little cheesy, and the magazines sometimes need a good slam to lock in. This pistol is not as customizable as the Ruger and Browning models, but you can get custom grips (3rd party) and the 4", 5.5" or 7" barrels (from S&W) for this model. This is also easier to clean than the Rugers (not sure about the Brownings). If you can only own one .22 and want the least expensive and easiest to clean, I would recommend this model. If you are loaded you can upgrade to the Model 41, for about 4 times the price.
