Default 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.

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.

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.

Not a fan of the Mk III. The S&W M41 is very good, without a doubt one of the best American 22s left, but not as good as a Pardini SP, Feinwerkbau AW93, or Hammerli 208 or the classic High Standards, and never will be. Much of that is due to the reliability, barrel blank and lack of adjustment. That's why you don't see them at the Olympics or with the military shooting teams. It doesn't mean it isn't a fine pistol, but there are better if funds are unlimited.

Again all can/will get you points. But there are some differences that only your wallet may be able to appreciate.
