In a revolver I have always been partial to the Smith and Wesson line. Don't know if you could get one for your price or not.

Ruger or Taurus might have something in that cal. and price range.

I agree. In production Revolvers, S&W is tops. In my experience, everything is a more precise fit and functions smoother on a S&W revolver.

Finding a "new" or even a good quality used .22 revolver,for less than 300 dollars, is going to involve a great deal of luck. I'm not familar with any brands that sell for that price new, although there might be some that I have never heard of. Good luck with your search

I have three .22 caliber handguns. One is a Taurus revolver. It is a very nice revolver, modeled after the Smith & Wesson. It is a very accurate revolver. The other is a Ruger Mark II target model with the bull barrel. Again, a very accurate pistol. The third is a Iver Johnson double action .22 pistol. Now 25 years ago, you might have got one in that price range. As for finding a handgun for that kind of money... you might look at High Point pistols. Whether they sell a .22 for that money I could not say.

Take a look at Heritage Mfg. You can buy a .22 Convertible (.22 & .22 mag) for around $300 or a bit less. They are well made, have hammer block safeties and come stock with cocobolo grips. Also they now make them in 9 shot versions too. Here's mine;

Although I own a 22 cal handgun I, by far, prefer the more authorative attributes of the over 40 calibers that only come in Magnum calibers. I had an entire career in the military and in the air arm. Our motto was bomb the enemy from 8 countries and if the battle was close enough for any handgun it was far too close. The 22 is good for gaining shooting experience and fun to plink with but for any upcoming battles get something with more authority.
