No matter your personal preferences, rimfire handguns come in a variety of styles and with an array of features to accommodate your unique needs. While some rimfire pistols are both single and double action, others are simply single action, which means you have to manually cock the hammer. Look for rimfire handguns with predrilled and tapped Weaver- and/or Picatinny-style rails to easily add accessories, and seek pistols with front and rear sights to help ensure greater precision. Handguns with a one-button takedown afford quick and easy field-stripping and cleaning, and pistols with interchangeable backstraps allow you to alter the platform to fit your hands. Choose from a full range of materials, including rust-resistant metals and wood grips, to complement your personal style and withstand the rigors of your shooting application.
