It seems the OP has two real questions in this thread.

He 'buried the lead' in the thread by revealing later that he has a chance to swap a Ruger P89 for a Ruger MKII and asked if he should do the deal. That seems like it should be the lead question.

The second question is what he asked first: what do we recommend in the sub-$500 category of .22lr handgun.

Pilpens, your comments seem to fit his original question well, but I had a follow-up question to your post.

You said that:
pilpens I have several .22LR pistols.
1. Browning Buckmark 7" Bull Fluted(2)
2. Ruger MKII - 5" Bull and 7 inch slabside(2)
3. S&W 41 5" inch heavy barrel (1)
All are good pistols.

Ruger MK is built to last.
I shoot the Buckmark slightly better than the Ruger but this may just be a consequence of the trigger.
S&W 41 is very nice but I would buy 2 buckmarks or rugers before I get another S&W41.
Recently, browning fix a broken rear sight rail screw for free (I had to pay shipping only).
Of the ones I have, I use the Buckmark the most.
If I were to get another .22, It would be a 22/45 with the wood grips.

Ok, Pilpens, Here's the question:

If you didn't have ANY .22lr handguns [none, zilch, nada], which would you buy as your ONLY .22lr [for now] and why?

I am genuinely curious.
