What's your favorite/most accurate .22 Hangun?

With .22LR now pretty much available everywhere again (except Wal-Mart) I just began again to give my collection a workout again. My own favorite for accuracy has been the Ruger MK II target with the 6 7/8" barrel. I bought the CZ Kadet Kit pretty much as low cost trainer for the CZ 75b, but I was so impressed by the accuracy I would rate it right up with the Ruger. I was carrying a Bersa T 22 on my hikes, but switched to revolvers, the old three screw Ruger Single-Six or the Taurus M94 to shoot up some standard velocity ammunition that doesn't function well in semi-automatics. I even shot up some rounds in my Charter Arms Explorer II. I never did find a holster for that beast. The Advantge Arms conversion for the Glock 21 proved to be a good investment. The only fault I have with it is what I posted earlier about the lighter weight being a factor as a trainer. The CZ kadet kit's weight is near that of the 9MM slide, better for training. Enough typing, I think I'll burn a few hundred rounds up.

I've only got 2 1/2 .22 pistols currently. A Beretta M71 (3 1/2" barrel), my wife's pink Kimber Rim fire target model and a Kimber .22 Conversion kit for my Colt Series'70. None of them are as accurate as the Ruger Mk II Bull Barrel I sold a couple of years back

I've not a .22LR pistol at all right now.

But I'll be searching for a Ruger Mk II target like I used to own.

Although I'm intrigued by the new MK IV ones. Although I don't want to be a Beta Tester for them.

I've only got a Ruger 22/45 that I bought to use teaching. Since it's my only 22, I guess that makes it my favorite!

I have noticed that it jams a lot more than I'd tolerate in anything but a training aid, though. Since I don't know anything about how it's built, and can barely detail strip the thing, I just use it to teach about jam drills.

What ammunition are you using? The only malfunctions I have had were directly related to standard velocity bulk stuff that also malfunctioned in my Bersa T22 and Ruger SR22.

My .22/45 is the only .22 pistol I have that has been 100% with any ammo I've put in it. Most .22 pistols can be finicky, and some horribly so; but the .22/45 has been completely reliable with everything so far.

CCI has Standard velocity and Mini-Mags, they both come in plastic boxes. The standard velocity is about 220 FPS less than the Mini-mag, I think.

Fwiw, my experiences with various loads in three different .22 pistols: Various .22 loads in different pistols

The mini-mag's are still the only ones to run 100% in any gun I've tried them in. These three pistols, a 10-22, and a marlin 7000; all of them just gobble up mini-mag stuff like it was premium Hornady Match or something. It's taken the place of stingers as my "put back" stuff.
