There are a couple of Ruger 22/45 Bull Barrel models around but I haven't seen a Browning Buckmark yet.

The most common (or the ones I have seen in matches), are:

Astra Constable Target
Astra TS22
Baikal IZH-35M / Baikal IJ-35M
Baikal MCM (Margolin)
Benelli MP90
Benelli MP95
Bersa Mod. 23
Bersa 226
Colt 22 Cadet
Colt Match Target
FAS 607
Hämmerli 280
Hämmerli SP20 RRS
Hämmerli X-Esse
Morini SM22RF
Pardini Mod. SP
Pardini Mod. SP1
Ruger 22/45 BB
SIG Mosquito
Smith & Wesson 422
Tanfoglio Force 22 L
Walther GSP
Walther GSP Expert
Walther SSP
Walther P22

Some .22 rimfire revolvers also show up like the Arminius (Weihrauch) HW-9 ST, which is phenominally accurate (25m, offhand always), but ill suited for the 10 second string in Standard Pistol matches.

...and some others that I will add when memory serves

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy 2017

Do you ever get a chance to shoot any of those other pistols? Or are the owners angry with a P22 shooter? Got a favorite from the list? I haven't shot any of em. M1911

Oh yes!

I have shot all of them, at one point or another. No exception.

When someone comes to the range with a different model, I am tapped on the shoulder and asked to sight it in for them. That's my unofficial function, so to speak. The same with match air pistols at the 10m range.

The FAS 607 has the best grip angle and fit for my hand and the trigger is a dream to behold, by far and was used as the basis for developing the Walther SSP. I have shot my highest score with a FAS 607 and with a Walther SSP (540+).

The Walther P22 can outshoot all of them but the Walther SSP and occasionally the new Pardini SP1 (I have outshot the Pardini SP1 twice but never the SSP). The old Pardini SP (the first model), doesn't stand a chance.

I fires some type of high end pellet gun that Pilkguns owned.....don't remember what it was specifically but it sure shot well. You are just having too much fun. M1911

Was it Crosman's Model 88 Skanaker?

The Skanaker was ahead of its time and everyone copied it.

I like the Flash Gordon space-sporting Crosman Model 600 semi-auto CO2 pell-gun in .22 cal., a lot, for sheer plinking fun.

Crossman...??? I don't think so.....felt and looked pretty high end. Steyr perhaps. Among many other things he makes high end pellets. I was pretty fascinated watching the machine run. I made a video of it in action.....spitting out several pellets per second. This was the first full grip pistol I'd ever fired. I can see the advantage of the palm rest fitting tight again the bottom of the hand, the top portion wrapping over the top of your wrist. Really made holding the pistol steady at the wrist and hand much easier. You still had to put the front sight on the target though. This was up at a Walther shoot one weekend last fall in TN, about 2 hours from here or a little shorter.

I never did figure out how you recharge it.....scuba stuff I think. Anyway it was a pleasure to shoot, five round clip/magazine things that were inserted from the left and fed out the right. Aluminum. I even hit the pond occasionally with it. M1911

It appears he handles those Crete......but I'm pretty unfamiliar with all the air pistol/rifles. In fact I have no experience with them other than a Daisy Red Ryder.....

It was most most probably the 5-shot semi-automatic .177 cal. pellet model STEYR LP50, compressed air match pistol. A scuba diver's reservoir is used to refill it using an adaptor (pictured below).



I have a similarly functioning 5-shot semi-auto repeater that uses CO2 gas instead of compressed air (like that found in fire extinguishers), match air pistol made by Feinwerkbau in the 1980s (imported in the US by Beeman), called Mod. C5, in .177 cal. (seen below).





These are excellent trainers. Pricey to get but then they run cheaply with pellets. I have zeroed mine at 25m and use it for practice on the same target as the .22 rimfire and get excellent results. I wished the Walther P22 could match the C5.

The difference between the two is the trigger (I prefer mine a little better), and that the LP50 is made of aluminium and is a tad lighter, while mine is made out of steel and is a tad heavier. I have shot the LP50 side by side with my C5 and I can't tell the difference in accuracy and handling.

Is the 4,3x1,5 O-ring size correct for the P22 recoil spring rod base?

I am trying to fit an O-Ring to the P22 recoil spring rod.

I am content with the 4,3x1,5 O-ring NBR70 (Nitrile Black 70 durometer).

Is it the correct size? It fits in the frame well, and is the same diameter (as far as I can tell) as the rod's nail head.

Which size O-ring are you using?

I have no idea metrically speaking. Sorry, didn't see this question. I'm sure I have a picture somewhere of one installed on the guide rod/recoil spring. Seems it was a #83 something purchased from a large home improvement store...plumbing section. Nothing rare or expensive. The inner diameter is just large enough to fit loosely over the recoil spring but not so loosely as to flop around.

When installing the slide all you have to do is make sure the O ring is not sitting on top of the takedown lever or you won't be able to press it upward. When installed, the main body of the rubber ring matches the muzzle cup and simply gets compressed when the muzzle cup would otherwise slam into the takedown lever. A buffer is all it is. It is softer than the polymer take down lever so the stop is not as abrupt. I can easily feel it when firing.

If I try to put two of the O rings on the guide rod/recoil spring then I run into a problem of the slide not being able to be retracted quite enough so that it can be removed from the pistol and if the slide doesn't move enough rearward the slide stop won't work. One O ring is fine. Two, no. 1917
