Suppressor-Ready Plinking 22s: Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Walther

Respectively, the threaded-barrel contestants were the 22/45 Lite, the Model M&P22, and the P22Q Tactical Pistol. Two of them handled a wide selection of ammo choices; one didn’t.

Rimfire plinking pistols should be fun to shoot and easy to operate and maintain, and if they offer a little more for the buck, even better. We recently came across three 22 LR semi-autos we thought would be fun to shoot and which offered threaded barrels for suppressor use — a definite upgrade over the basic 22 LR tube. Our test candidates were the Ruger 22/45 Lite No. 03900 P45MK3ALRPFL, $499; the Smith & Wesson Model M&P22 No. 122000, $419; and the Walther Arms P22Q QAP22522 Tactical Pistol with Hi-Viz Sight and Threaded Barrel, $440. The sizzle on these steaks is supposedly their suppressor adaptability, so let’s start there.
