I have a S&W 317-3 AirLite that I shoot .22 shorts in. It's fairly accurate but still shoots a bit high and I can't adjust the sights any more to compensate. But man it feels like a toy. Almost no weight at all to it.
But I shot a school gun in International Rapidfire mailmatches in college, a Hi Standard Olympic .22Short.
Wish I'd got one, but the standard "Starving Student" excuse kept clogging my wallet til they went out of production:crying: :crap:
I have a few 22 revolvers I use 22 shorts and those mexican 22 long (350 fps) rounds that make no noise in. Both are a funny for me to shoot but nice to teaching my daughter with and great for pest control if you're in need of that.
Just buy a wheel gun and you're set, shoot any of the 22 rounds you want in it from 22 ball to 22 LR. Just remember you can't interchange the 22 mags.
