By The Numbers - Walther P22

Accuracy is solid for a .22 LR pistol. The longer target variant may fare better here.
The P22 does need to be kept clean, which can be tough given how dirty .22 LR ammo is. When the gun is maintained, it runs well.
There are a decent amount of upgrades, and the rail allows for mounting of accessories.
The P22 is extremely comfortable, offering some customization of the rear grip panel. The ambi controls are easy to reach.

Taurus TX22

Taurus TX22


The Taurus TX22 is a great choice for target shooting, plinking, small game hunting, and sometimes even self-defense. Most .22 LR pistols hold 10 rounds due to concerns about rimlocking. However, Taurus seems to have figured this problem out and created an ergonomic, great-shooting rimfire pistol with a capacity of 16 rounds.  The TX22 features a polymer frame with an ergonomic grip design and match-grade threaded bull barrel.  Overall, the Taurus TX22 is a reliable and accurate 22LR pistol that’s ideal for a variety of uses. As with most Taurus products, it comes in at an attractive price point, and its features have put it ahead of many of the guns in its class.

FN 502 Tactical

FN 502 Tactical


“The FN 502 Tactical is a .22 LR built on the 509 design. It features aggressive texturing, 15+1 capacity, and can easily accommodate a suppressor and red dot. For those seeking a similar feel to the FN 509 but also wanting to save money by training with .22 LR, this is a great option. The gun also has a place in introducing new students to the platform. If you are looking for a tactically feature-rich .22 plinker, look no further than the FN 502 Tactical.” – Sean Curtis

Glock 44


“The .22 LR Glock G44 does what it is supposed to do. Shots on target, reliable with specific ammo, and it comes in at a great value. Plus it’s nearly identical to the Glock 19 which makes it the perfect training and plinking gun. Rounding out why this might be worthy of your time…accessories. Because it’s a Glock means that it has a ton of accessories and aftermarket parts ready to throw on.” – Johnny B.

final verdict

“This Walther P22 is just plain fun. How else can you send thousands of rounds down range without worrying about ammo cost? The best part is not having to compromise comfort or features for that cheap and fun range experience. I can say from experience that the P22 is pure gold with plenty of features, accuracy, and comfort!” – Bryan Rheem
