Default Want a hunting 22 Lr semi-auto

I want a new semi-auto hand gun for small game hunting. Considering the Ruger target or a browning target model. I want one with sights and a rail to mount a red dot. Probably a Burris speed dot.

Any other guns I should look at?

I had a S&W 22A with wood target grips which I liked. Seemed heavy with the red dot on it. Finally sold it to a friend. Accuracy was good.

Once I got a S&W 41 it became my favorite. New ones are drilled and tapped.
The S&W Victory has many good reports and is quite reasonable in price.

Yes I found the victory target model with the rail. I want to handle one.

I have only heard good reports so far. I am tempted to as well.

The mor I look at the S & W Victory target model the better I like it. Its lighter than either the Ruger or the browning. I text my SIL in Atlanta and asked him to go by the big sports store, outdoor adventure when he gets a chance and check one out. Were going up there in a few weeks I may bring one home.

I used my Ruger 22/45. It's an older model, not the new funny looking ones.

I can highly recommend the 22A. solid mount on top, good trigger, accessory barrels.

I much prefer the Ruger 22/45 for a semi-auto pistol and the grips on it are the reason. It doesn't give up accuracy to any of the others and is just a better fit for my hand. Get the itch to customize? There are a lot of options available for both it and the regular MK IV if you prefer that grip.
