    Very interesting pistol

    I ran across this and did some research. Supposed to be a tack driver. Sometimes I look at it and like it other times not so much, but at over 500.00 I will not own one.

    The 22/45 was always an OK gun, but I've never seen one I'd pay 5 bills for...But when I think of all the High Standards and Colt .22's I've bought and sold, I get heartsick because today I don't have any of them......Ben

    We got a couple of those (22/45 lite) for the kids to shoot. I dont like them but im spoiled. My biggest beef is that they dont always feed well. Really finnicky about how the magazine goes in. I suppose they shoot ok, minute of beer can for sure - but its hard to teach a kid to shoot when you get missfeeds. They also feel cheap and plastic compared to my MK II target or my colt match target.

    I dont think i paid anywhere near $500 back then. If i did it again I would have plunked down the extra few bucks to get the bull barrel MK whatever they are up to now. $.02

    This is the one I have. S&W 422

    That's a nice looking pistol.

    Thanks. Back when Wal-mart sold handguns, I bought it around 1991. One of the mechanics I worked with told me about it, they also had a plastic grip and fixed site one, he suggested this one.
