I have two:

Taurus 970 Tracker 6.5" - used as a small game hunting gun.

Ruger Bearcat Shopkeeper - used as a utility gun while in the field or on the farm.

This is my favorite by far. It has great balance and just feels good in addition to shooting great with both .22LR and .22WMR. It was really difficult to find one but was worth the wait, this one will never leave me.

I have shot a good few .22 pistols but very few revolvers. My favourite has to be the 6.5" Single Six I once owned. That said, I wouldn't mind trying the S&W .22s mentioned in this thread!

My favorite .22LR revolver would be my H&R 999 Sportsman.

My favorite .22WMR revolver would be my 9.5" barrel Single Six.

Here's a couple of my favorites right now...

Ruger OM Super Single Six unconverted that I scrounged up a .22lr cylinder for.


And this one due to it's scarcity. Iver Johnson 3rd Model Hammerless Cycle Model.

I bought one of the new 22 LR GP100s several months ago .... a very nice revolver but only AFTER I completely overhauled it. Trigger pull was extremely heavy and was full of creep. Now it works just fine but I must say .... I totally agree with Waveform. My favorite 22LR revolver is my S&W K-22 Masterpiece Model 17 (6" barrel) and my Mod 18 Combat Masterpiece (4" barrel) is my second favorite. The GP100 comes in third .... well ahead of my many Single-Sixes.

Here's my new 22LR GP100 (5" half lug barrel):

Had a single six years ago, didn't like it and was sold. Picked up a S&W 48-4 in 22 mag, ex police weapon if you can believe that. Wife has a Sig Mosquito but doesn't like it.

My S&W model 17 is by far my favorite. Sweet double action, as well as single action if needed.

I don't own revolvers, but my wife is extremely fond of her SP101 in 22lr.

MY all time favorite was a Colt Diamondback 6" barrel. In 1982 I traded it in on a new 6" Python in blue which I still have Wish I had held on to the Diamondback too. They would have made a nice pair. My Lipseys special Ruger single ten is the favorite one I have now.

I had a 1975 Colt New Frontier 22lr/22wmr for 20 yrs. Great balance and very smooth action.

My favorite is a single six I did shoot a nine round H&R that is my uncles and it was as accurate as any pistol I have ever fired.
I would like to try some of the S&W,s have always heard great things about them.
I really like to get first timers to try a single action just to give them the basics, my 19 year old son had a roommate from college this weekend that had never fired a gun before so he let him shoot his single six, Henry Frontier 22lr , a SR22 and then a 10/22 to round out the experience. I think it gave the boy some new confidence and at the very least a big grin. It always surprises me how many people have never shot a gun and don't realize what a great sport it can be.
