    Of the ones's you own, what is your favorite rimfire:
    Revolver

    What is your favorite rimfire:
    Semi-Auto

    Edited to include favorite rimfire Rifle


    For me, my ONLY .22 revolver (so far) is my Taurus Tracker with the 6.5" barrell, but it is VERY accurate. Even thinking of adding a red dot scope to it if I can figure a way to add one and keep my iron sights intact.

    Favorite semi is my Sig Sauer Mosquito, because it feels so much like my Sig Pro 9mm. My wife and I have several other semis, and every one of them are great in their own way, but for now that is my pick.

    As for rifle, we only have 2 and my wife doesn't know about that on as it is my Christmas gift for her.

    Like picking a favorite child
    I love my Browning Buckmark target 5.5 AND my Ruger MK2 with a 10" barrel AND my High Standard 103 with the "spacegun" barrel
    IF I was alloud only one the 5.5" barrel is my choice

    it's nothing uncommon or special, but my Ruger SR22 is a great shooter for me and everybody that tries it out loves it too.

    C'mon ozo. Where did you get it and what kind of improvement did it make. My wife has a GSG 1911 and I may want to add that to hers.

    The link is there on my post Donnie
    Watch the video....he splains it.
    But check the rest of his site also.
    edit:

    I always dis-liked the allen screw for takedown....
    now I don't need it.
    As Chet explains, the allen screw also pulls the
    barrel down when tightened.
    Look inside your OEM barrel bushing....

    This was disconcerting. I am a huge S&W HE fan. But my favorite 22 revolver is my Flat Gate Single Six. With autos the choice is a little easier, since I only have three. But my Mark I Liberty Gun gets the nod.

    Rifle? I think it's whichever one I have in my hand at the time.

    SIG 1911-22
    Same gun as the GSG
    and the Chet Whistle works on it also.

    As for rifles I forgot my AR15. It is a .223/5.56 but I have a .22 drop in conversion kit for it. It would be hard to imagine anything any more fun to shoot.

    Browning Medalist. This one belonged to my Grandfather, and has his initials on a brass plaque on the case. Now my dad has it.

    Mine is an old favorite. Ruger MkII. An Uncle had one and I loved it, so much that I had to get one later in life for my own. PITA to clean and take apart and put together but the best shooting-est .22 pistol I've ever owned.

    Taurus 92 Small Frame-only revolver I own

    Ruger Mark III 22/45-more accurate than my Colt 1911 so it wins. Both are great guns.

    Savage Mark II BV to put small groups on paper, S&W M&P 15-22 for plinking fun at the range.

    I own many more .22s but these are my favorites. At least 4 are with me every time we go to the range. Sometimes the Savage stays home if we're not feeling like shooting small groups at longer ranges.

    Kind of a toss up between my Ruger Bearcat and Browning Buckmark. They're both fun to shoot.

    Taurus 92 is a centerfire, therefore not eligible.[and not a revolver]
