    I was looking at 2 .22lr pistols: an AMT Automag and a Smith and Wesson 422. The AMT is $215 and the Smith is $175.

    I like the profile of the Automag with the vent rib and the barrel, but I am afraid of not finding parts etc for this gun.

    Any ideas?

    He also has a used Buckmarl with a nice Aimpoint on it for $295....

    The AMT may have a decent profile; if you are talking about the AutomagII in .22WMRF these pistols have possibly the worst trigger put on a firearm. The ones I've seen had heavy pulls and were very inconsistent. I'd opt for the S&W 422, its a proven product you can get parts for it if need be.






    If you believe it is reprehensible to possess the will and means to repel a criminal assault...how can you rightfully ask another to risk his life to protect yours?

    I am looking for a plinker for my wife. She likes my Dad's High Standard Duramatic. Of course this is after I just purchased a Colt SA Ne Frontier 22LR for her. Money is a little tight, so these two lloked good. However, I think the Automag is probably a .22WMR, not a 22LR. I have yet to see one on 22lr so far.

    I am now leaning towards the Buckmark with the scope (which I could remove) or I may just get the 422 and call it good....
