.22lr pistols under 5" overall lenght

...I already know the Beretta Bobcat and Jetfire and the Taurus PT22, but that can't be all the market for very small (as above: smaller than 5 inches) 22lr guns, can it?

Since the number of guns I am allowed to own is limited, I want something small AND plink-able, so to speak. And yes I know 22lr is not a good SD round.

Thanks for your suggestions, if there are any.

Love my Phoenix Arms HP22a. I polished up the feed ramp and it's been nothing but reliable. Over 500 rounds without a hiccup.

The website lists it as 4.1 x 5.5 inches.

http://www.phoenix-arms.com/Products/HP22A.html

There's also a range kit available for it that has a 5" barrel and extended grip magazine.

Some folks seem to have issues with the multiple safety configurations but IMO, I don't think they're that cumbersome. It's just a matter of muscle memory/conditioning.

The Jetfire is a .25. It's counterpart, the Minx is a .22 short. Fine little guns!
Astra made the Cub in .22 lr in later years. I don't know the length as they were not imported to the US. Bernardelli made a very small auto in .22 short and .22 long, but no LR.
Armi Galesi made a small .22 lr about 5 inches long.

Phoenix HP-22

Great little $149 MSRP gun with a lifetime warranty for the original owner. Mine works great!

The Beretta Bobcat is 4.9" long, and a hoot of a pistol.

The Bersa Thunder 22 is a fun, relaible and accurate little shooter. It also sells for a great price.
