I've got one in .22LR and love it, however, I've never had any desire for a .22 mag. The price for .22 mag. ammo is the same as .38 Spl., and the .38 is a lot more versatile. Good for plinking, small game, varmints, and self-defense. Fantastic fun in a lever gun.
Its been listed since Oct 2006 so this gun must be overpriced. I have a 9mm, 357 and .32 magnum SP101 and thought it would be neat to have a .22 just to complete the set. This one was too expensive for me though.
