Two that come to mind are the Browning Buckmaster series and the Ruger Mark lV.
I'm not sure where you saw the low marks for durability but I have almost 40,000 rounds through one I have. It takes just about any kind of rounds I put through it and it breaks down in seconds to clean it. I stopped shooting my model 63 after I bought it. The only thing that has had to be replaced is the firing pin. One month turnaround from S & W with no cost to me. I bought it for my wife to learn on when she started shooting. It's also a great trainer for the Shield since it modeled so close to it.Hi All - my paperwork is finally in and I am in the market for a .22 for training, low cost of ammo and to use to teach my kids. I recently tried the S&M MP .22 compact at the range and liked it (cost is right) but I'm starting to see low marks for durability.
I love my Legion 226 and would like a .22 with similar weight, durability and trigger if possible. Would also like to keep the purchase price down if possible. I see Sig has the P938-22. Anyone shoot it/like it/hate it?? It's a little more than I was hoping to spend but it is a Sig.
I've been shooting for less than a year so looking for suggestions/advice.
Thanks in advance
