    Tie between Hammerli 280 and Erma ESP-85A; with a slide and magazine change, both will also fire .32S&W wadcutters.

    oooh weee... the best??


    Wellll, Bill Ruger's Mark series .22 is probably the best selling, most used to the general masses.

    but, one of these is hard to beat..

    Sadly, that's an "assault pistol" in some states because the magazine is in front of the trigger guard.

    I like the Smith & Wesson Model 41 very much.
    It sorta looks like a 1911, is heavy, and is the best .22 Pistol I've ever shot.

    The S&W M41 is well worth the money for its accuracy. From there you're going to have to lay out substantially more money. I have not shot my M41 for quite a while, but used to use it for target shooting as well as hunting.

    In the opposite direction are target models of the Ruger and the Buckmark.

    I am not a fan of the Ruger Mrk III. I think the safety crap they added has degraded the trigger. I'd rather find a good, used Mark II.

    I like the Buckmark. I think it's an excellent gun in its price range. I have one of the discontinued 5.5" Field models with ful length rail. The Buckmark is based on the old Challenger, and the old Medalist is in this family.

    Some have mentioned old Victors. Yes, they're worth the coin. They're also not common to find. A similar model is the High Standard Military. A good used Browning Medalist is also worth the coin, but they're spendy and even less common.

    I shot one of these many years ago. It's a Russian Drulov 75 single shot...it was a "1 hole all day long" deal....

    That's like asking who makes the best toilet paper.

    For Bullseye matches, High Standard....it's closest to a 1911 and has won it all. Second place would be a S&W 41, they are not a good mix with a 1911. The grip is awkward when shooting 3 gun 2700 matches. Some shoot them very well though.

    Olympic shooting requires a totally different design as you see in the above post.

    Intl free pistol totally different again.

    Plinking, whatever works.

    If you really want to buy "THE BEST" you will have to buy at least 6-12 different models. SS, auto, revolver, 22short rapid fire, intl free pistol.....SEE, there is no Best, only the best for whatever you plan to use it for.

    Herretts made a 1911 grip set for my Model 41. They still make them. The grip panels look like a 1911, and the wood wraps around the back. You can get them in flat or arched. Big improvement.

    This is the version I ordered. At the time only flat backstraps were available, but they custom made mine with an arched housing. Now both versions are offered.

    Similar to, but not an exact match, of a 1911 grip panel.

    I own a number of .22 handguns, but the one that inpresses me the most for accuracy is my Walther GSP. It shoots any ammo that its fed, has an awesome trigger and sights and never jams. I also own a Colt Frontier Scout that is surprisingly accurate as well.

    S&W41 is your best bet. My wife uses one and shoots it very well. HMB

    I can't help it but I'm partial to the High Standards Victor. I have a 1976 vintage one that is a shooter.

    If she has small hands, then have her feel a Ruger with the old style grip, as it has one of the smaller grips in circumfrance for a non-compact .22.

    You might also look at some of the various Buckmark models. These are currently available with three different frame styles. Standard, URX, and UDX. Visit a well stocked dealer to have her try the different frames. The Browning website shows the different styles.
