The Colt Woodsman .22
The World's Classic .22 Automatic - A Brainchild of John M. Browning

I am a real fan of this classic .22 pistol. The fit, finish, and ergonomics are unsurpassed. These long discontinued pistols are much better than what has come since.

You must ask yourself whether you would rather own a current production .22 with plastic and stamped out parts or own a classic piece of history crafted out of milled forgings. For me the question is easy. I'll take the classic Colt Woodsman, one of the brilliant designs of the genius John Browning.

No .22 pistol offered today exceeds the Colt Woodsman for build quality. Few will equal the Woodman’s accuracy. Why is the Woodsman no longer offered? You know it would be prohibitively expensive to produce in today’s world.

Treat yourself to a classic. Your .22 pistol is the one you will enjoy time after time at the range. It’s what you will pick up to teach your children to shoot a pistol. You'll have it at your side in a holster as you wander through the woods.

Safety is an important consideration. The Woodsman has a positive safety that locks both the firing mechanism and the slide, making the pistol safe. The Second Series pistols also have a magazine safety that renders the pistol inoperable if the magazine is released. This important feature prevents an accident in the event a novice removes the magazine and then thinks the pistol is unloaded. I personally know of a tragic death that resulted from just this very mistake (involving a Ruger Standard Automatic). This safety feature was discontinued with the Third Series pistols.

I watch for good to excellent examples of this fine pistol and buy them when priced reasonably. I am not offering "come what may." When I buy a Woodsman I make the time and effort to disassemble the pistol, meticulously clean each part, properly lubricate and reassemble the pistol, and then test fire the pistol with at least one full magazine of ammunition to assure it functions flawlessly. After firing the pistol I again disassemble it, clean the bore, and clean all powder residue from the action. Only then when I reassemble it do I feel confident the pistol is ready to serve its owner under the most extreme circumstances. I will offer only those pistols that meet my demanding standards - those I would own myself.
