This is confusing. Your pitting an M21 suppressed mini-22 against a M41 Target pistol as far as accuracy then say it's only 1/3rd as accurate. Their not even in the same class of firearm and what does a Taurus PT22 have to do with either?The silenced M21trail pistol, with luminous sights, SA-only, speed safety, Pt22 1 rd increase in mag capacity and a bit longer grip. has only about 1/3rd that much accuracy, but it's silenced in nearly the same size, and considerably less weight. You can have one for $3000.
Nothing at all. But you have to understand the speaker......But what does the $8000.00 M41 have to do with it?

Since the M21 is his favorite 22 handgun, it's obviously better than any other 22 handgun, and is to be compared to every other 22 handgun; regardless of accuracy, regardless of how much cobbling up you have to do to it to achieve the +1 extended rimfire capacity, etc.
Basically, "the beretta 21 is the only 22 handgun that makes sense, so it might as well be the only one that exists and therefore the better accuracy and increased power of __(fill in the blank)__ gun is irrelevant".
As someone who's owned numerous 22 handguns since the 1970's and has had a Beretta 21 since 1986 or so, I know better; but firsthand knowledge is irrelevent when pontifications are at stake.
That's that Bob Loveless custom gun being auctioned in the opening post. It's a neat conversion, being substantially shorter and made to have an exposed hammer. But odds are (like most top-end custom guns) it'll end up in someone's safe or wall display and not get much, if any, use. Sad, but that's what seems to happen....I've been looking all over for a $8,000.00 .22 for plinking.
