Here's a pic because a response is just better with one...lol



Now that i pretty unique.!


Thanks. Yes it is indeed unique. This is a 1961 Mark 1 with the factory compensator attached. I just happened to be visiting a LGS when a guy walked in and put it on consignment. After he left, I purchased it for $250.

They are accurate little pistols. I think the closest modern pistol to the ease and price of a hi standard is the victory.

What's your take on the Beretta target? Worth the buy in? 1k for a 22 seems a bit excessive to me, but I can't convince myself I don't need one.

Like the 617 too. Have a 4" model. Fun little range toy.


A Perpetual Disappointment...

Well, the 87t is a super nice gun. I like the smooth rolling trigger. Some do not like the trigger at all.

For less money the sig trailside is a better buy. At the same new price the xeese with its few upgrades over the trail side would be an execelent buy. A used 41, 6 inch 617, colt woodsman target are all options. To be honest if you want one by all means. It is a super fun pistol. I picked it up after many recomendations on here. As for accuracy, dime sized groups at 50 ft with practice.

It is a competitor for target and fun gun.

I have a 87T because my LGS had one for over a year with no takers. My guy offered it to me for 600 and I couldn't say no. That being said, I'm not a fan. It isn't a target pistol in trigger quality and the SAO nature limits its field/carry use to me. Save your money and get the standard 87.

22's have always been and will continue to be my favorites. I especially like old school steel and wood types. While I was never down to critical mass with the ammo shortage it is nice to see the supply of 22 commonly on dealer shelves again, even if not at old time prices!

+1 on the beretta 87. Best quality and most reliable 22 combat style pistol out there- Definitely worth the $900 .

I am a great fan of the M41 and I have two of them. It is not the world's best target pistol but it's certainly in the top five or so.
The grip angle, trigger, and balance of the M41 with 5.5" barrel comes near to shooting a tuned 1911.
I have owned a lot of 22s in the 65 years that I have been buying them and I keep coming back to the M41.
Some barrels are a bit picky about ammunition but when I use CCI Std Vel or above I can shoot 3-400 rounds without a FTF.

I was looking through my photobucket for a 22 pistol family picture and found a couple, however in each picture I'd let about 1/2 of them go. There are a few I kind of regret letting go of; S&W41, Browning Buckmark Signature, an H&R Sportsman 9 shot ... but they just sat in the safe ... I still got my Hi Standard 8" Trophy, Colt Cadet with the 4" and 6" target barrels, a couple Ruger MKIII's and several Beretta's, one of which is a NEOS which after 3-4 years I've still haven't decided if its going to stay or go ...

I guess its time for a new family picture!


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

I'm looking at a second 22/45.



And if I didn't already have one, I'd be very interested in the 70s I see for sale....ah who am I kidding...

Yes, my friend post up that family photo.

Picked up this MKII tonight at a LGS. I'll take it apart this weekend for a good cleaning.

nice score, i have such a soft spot for MKII pistols. The safety lever looks like it had a bit of dried oil. This should be a solid shooter. It will be a joy of a project.

Your guns always make me weak in the knees. If my name was Chris Mathews, my leg would be tingling.

I shot a new PPK in 22, and it had jam after jam after misfire after misfire. Mayyy have been the ammo - just a 50 round box of federal stuff - nothing special. but it was a bit disappointing to say the least.

Mine are both '60s era pistols with cocking indicators. However, I see little difference between the old ones and new. Actually there seems to be little difference in price either.
I suppose somewhere there is someone who has worn one out, no one that I know has done so.

I bought one of mine new and the other from another target shooter, both have shot at least 100k rounds.
I have done very little but replace springs and one mag release.

If something happened to one of mine I would not hesitate to buy either used or new. The trigger out of the box is as good as any production pistol made. Usually 2#+ a couple of ounces and very repeatable. Trigger travel to break is very, very, short.

Barrels are available and easy to change, if you watch you can find a Bully Barrel (Ray-Vin) which is great for Red-Dots.

My only serious regret regarding sales/purchases of firearms, was my sale of a Ruger MkII Target model.
