I'm very partial to S&W revolvers, in my opinion they are head and shoulders above the competition in the fit and finish dept.

Let me explain my negativity toward the Taurus .22 revolver. The wife and I both carry snubby .38's, so I thought a snubby .22 would be great for practice. So I bought a Taurus 94 at a gun show, where they have everything bolted to the tables and won't let you dry fire. The DA trigger pull was so stiff I could barely pull it and the wife couldn't pull it at all, or cock the hammer for SA. I installed a reduced power spring and the trigger pull became tolerable, but the gun would not fire, so I had to re-install the original spring. After about 100 rounds, the gun started to jam, the cylinder would not turn. Sent it back to the factory for the "lifetime " repair. Traded it off as it was virtually useless for practice. Found a nice used S&W model 34 and just love it.
Also had similar issues with a Chiappa 1911-22, was sent back to factory and returned to me with the same issues. Two brands I will never own again!!
Taurus are not inexpensive, but they are cheap, and the market is flooded with them. If you are looking for a .22 semi-auto I highly recommend the Browning Buckmark, very accurate and reliable.
