    I have Colt and S&W .22 revolvers but for what you want to spend I think your best bet would be a used Single Six. It's a well made gun and usually comes with 2 cylinders. Mine shot more accurately with the magnum cylinder.

    22 revolvers tend to have very heavy DA triggers to ensure reliable ignition. to me it's a fun gun i would go with a single action where the ruger single six or ten series really shine. the wrangler no doubt is a winner assuming the build quality is solid. good thing is ruger will take care of the gun should anything be sub par. for the price i would also be looking for a wrangler.

    I have a Ruger Single Six with the 9.5'' barrel. At the time I was going back and forth between it and a bolt action rifle in 22lr as I wanted something that could shoot basically any 22lr load out there. Overall it's a fun little plinker and ought to be good for small pest extermination if needed/able. The one downside is I do find the cylinder can get gunked up pretty good after not a ton of rounds so getting fresh cartridges in can be bit of a pain. It's not really the situation if you use the WMR cylinder.

    I hav a Ruger single six that I bring to the range often, great gun, but I have S&W pre 18 combat masterpiece that is the most accurate 22 revolver I own. It's a keeper. You can't beat the old Smith and Wessons.

    Wiegand makes/sells a great base for scopes or red dot sights for the Single Six --- no drilling / tapping required I love mine
