Don't count out the Taurus TX22. I've put 4-500 rounds through mine without a hiccup. Comes with two 16rd mags, adapter to run a can, really good trigger, accurate, and can be found for $299.

Rugers are sweet shooters. I have a few mkii and iii super accurate. I also have an mp22compact that will eat everything and has put down many snared coyotes. The tx22 is probably the best value for the money for sure very reliable pistol.

I don't think you can beat the price/performance of the TX22 right now.
I keep debating picking up a Mark IV tactical... mostly because they look slick but they are a bit hard to find right now and I do like how well my Taurus TX22 has been running (it will pretty reliably run subsonic rounds with my YHM Stinger).

I run a .Kimber 22 conversion on multiple 1911 frames. I had machine an extension for the barrel but itís a great shooter. For grins I cut down a .22 T/C contender barrel and threaded it. A hoot to shoot with just the sound of the hammer dropping.

Yes, it does . The pistol is actually standing sideways/leaning against the back of a bench with the barrel rested on the box of shells. The mags on the bench are laying flat.
Deceptive.

whatever you get , stick to 4" barrel or shorter if you plan on getting most bulk pack ammo to stay subsonic ... had bought a 5" tacsol barrel and had to sell it for that exact reason .. also guns with closed chambers will be quieter to the shooter, but will also need to be cleaned more often .. example the buckmark is slightly louder than the ruger mk2. had both , shot them side by side all the time. if you want the feel of a 9mm , the m&p and tx22 are good choices , got both , love both ... slight edge on the M&P as you can get the 9mm sights on it , .. that's what I did to mine and the sights are now far superior... edge on the TX for magazine capacity.. my 2c .. good luck.

Default looking for a semi-auto 22 pistol to suppress

Iíve got a Buckmark Target model.

https://www.browning.com/products/fi...sor-ready.html

I bought it with Cabelaís bucks, so it was mainly a choice due to what Cabelas had as far as threaded pistols more so than my dream 22 pistol. I love the gun, but can offer 2 comments. First, the barrel is just long enough that about 50% of standard 36gr ammo reaches supersonic. 40gr LRN ammo stays subsonic. I believe a pistol with a shorter barrel like the Ruger 22/45 Lite would prevent that. Second, with the suppressor on, it is crazy long. Way longer than practical for field use.

One thing I do like though is the rail on top. Iíve got a micro dot sight from Primary Arms, and although the red dot and suppressor kind of make this the worldís largest and most unwieldy 22 pistol, it is super fun to shoot at paper or for plinking.
