    .22lr revolvers

    Sell me on a wheel gun! I've been sitting on the fence about getting one ever since I got my RPAL over 3 years ago. I think there is just something so nostalgic about a classic revolver but I'm still not 100% convinced to buy one.

    From what I've researched any one of the Rugers should fit the bill?
    Don't blame me, I didn't vote for 'em.

    I love my Ruger Single Six, just plain good old timey single action fun.

    But...You can't beat a S&W 617 10 shot, that capacity in a revolver is pure grin inducing pleasure.

    A picture of my 4" 617.

    A clasic S&W M17 is pure pleasure nostalgic.

    Very nice, but a 4" barrel is a prohib in the red, white and north.

    Tradex had some a while ago and of course they're all gone now.

    Handled a coupled Rugers at P&D today, the Bearcat is definitely out the equation as the grip is too small for me.

    You looking for single or double action? Single action can be had for a great price if you keep your eyes open. Last one I found was for $125 shipped, lots of fun and got a few people into pistols.

    Are the taurus .22 revolvers any good? Only 9shot but cheaper than the S&W 617

    So there is, thank you. Even found a couple Canadian dealers stocking them. May just have to save for a bit longer.

    Good question, I'd be curious to know as well. I have heard their customer service/warranty is less than stellar.

    I've owned 2 semi-autos and one revolver. I keep going back to the revolver. It doesn't jam, and you don't have to go chasing brass all over the range.....although that's not exactly a big deal with a 22LR.
