22 EIC Matches
 
What is the most popular pistol being used in the 22lr matches?

Thanks!

There isn't a clear winner. Any reasonable .22 will get it done. I'd wager most of the Distinguished shooters so far used a Hammerli 208S, but that's only because they're High Masters and that's what they use for Bullseye. HMs for the most part shoot Hammerlis or Marvel/Nelson conversions, so that's what you'll see in .22 EIC.

And High Standards.

As far as I'm concerned the only 100% correct pistol to use for .22 EIC would have to be a High Standard Space Gun. In two seasons of this match no one I've seen has gotten it right!

I think the 10" max sight radius might be a problem with the Space Gun, depending on the barrel length. I've been using my HS Victor with the 5.5" barrel. Six points down, a bunch to go.

Thanks for the answers...............

So my Ruger MKII w/ bull barrel etc wouldn't be very competitive............ ?

No, that's fine--I've got a couple of hard legs and they were with a Ruger 22/45. The only problem is a screw holds on the front sight and it keeps falling off, so I have to remember to tighten it.

I see a lot of Pardini SP BE editions, Hammerli 208S, and Nelson/Marvel conversions with Master/High Master crowd. The rest is a grab bag. The Mk II or Buckmark are more than good enough for leg points.

The Ruger MKII or III are fantastic pistols for the .22 EIC. In fact the achievement pins have their image on them them. Any .22 in good working order that fits the guidelines can clean the course of fire with good functioning ammo. Just like rifle EIC, it's the shooter that earns the points. Use the pistol you have and save the money for ammo, and good pistol box to be organised. Mine is a S&W 41 7". It's as good a pistol that has ever been made for .22 Bullseye, and a whole lot of MKII Rugers have kicked my fanny.

Thanks again for the answers............I'll start practicing with my MKII. :)

(Hey.... any reason to shoot and practice is good...........)
