Considering a Pardini .22 for BE Empty Considering a Pardini .22 for BE

Post by xman 10/6/2021, 7:17 pm

After watching the Rapid fire 25M juniors in Lima, seeing the zero recoil of the Pardini.

What do I need to know about the the line up of Pardini 22s? Barrels?, ammo finicky? Dot sites? mounts, etc.

The full report please. I only shoot .22 for the full 2700 and EIC .22.

I would finance it by liquidation of my SW M41 with OEM 5.5 barrel and Clark 5.5 STC barrel with bridge for Vortex RD2 sight with 4 OEM mags

Also liquidation of Browning Buckmark Field Model with full length rail with 4 mags

Also liquidation of my Colt Hbar Sporter .223 with handle model with NM front and rear sights and at least 10 20rd Colt mags.

Yes it smacks of trying to buy points .. guilty.

I would suggest shooting a pardini before committing to buying one.

A three gun for one swap is never a good deal...

The Colt Hbar is a safe queen for the last decade or more. No more HP for me. The reloading trudge killed me then and it is not getting any better these days.

The Buckmark is my back up BE and EIC pistol, so not getting much use.

The SW with the Clark/Vortex is my primary BE pistol

The OEM SW barrel is my EIC barrel on the single SW frame that I have. Maybe 4 EICs a year max maybe 5 if I want to travel way out of state.

I figure I can use the Pardini, if configured correctly for both BE 2700s and EIC with irons.

A few years ago I relegated my Marvel to a back up and purchased a used Pardini. I have the newer version with the weights in the barrel shroud. It is not ammo finicky.
Yes, there is a 6” barrel version, unneeded
For dot sights you will either need to buy special rings or modify commercial rings to fit the Pardini rail.
I didn’t like the extreme angle of the European grip, bought a set of grips from the guy in Mt Vernon IL.
I made Distinguished by removing the dot and shooting the Pardini. The back sight opening is adjustable and different front sights are available
The trigger is infinitely adjustable
I did try one out first as I was torn between the FWB and Pardini. With the borrowed gun I shot a 100 long line with second target I shot with it.
Hope I answered all your questions

The Pardini is quick and easy to clean as well.

Kodiak mount and a dot with the Aimpoint style base is what you’ll need.

I made expert with a High Standard and an Aimpoint dot many years ago.
I had a friend switching from a Pardini to a GSP.
I was able to purchase the Pardini SPE and with I came close to High Master after two years of shooting it.
I now shoot a 2019 SP Bullseye.
I tried and did not like the balance of the six inch.
I also decided the compensator was more trouble to keep clean that it was worth.
I decided to try a set of Horton grips at the 1911 angle and love the way the pistol hangs.
I never could place my finger on the trigger where I needed to with the Pardini grips no matter
how I  adjusted the trigger.  
Next  will try a set of the tungsten weights and see how the extra weight closer to the hand feels.
My pistol has an Ultra dot on it and then negative magnification dose not bother me.
The pistol is not ammo sensitive however some others have seemed to be and your 
best to ask around and try some out to form your own opinion.
I believe a purpose built precision pistol will allow a shooter to maximize their potential
due to the fully adjustable trigger more than being more accurate in most cases.
For ME, trigger manipulation is the difference between a good shot that hits on call and 
an eight that I thought should have been a ten or X.

I moved from a High Standard to a Pardini.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the gun, I bought the champion's package with the mounts and scope directly from Pardini, and six magazines.

Best thing I have ever done as a Bullseye shooter, equipment wise. 
Second best thing was a Rink grip for the Pardini.

I have had 4 Pardini’s! 2 SP’s and 2 Hp’s both 6 inch and 5 inch. I sold the 5 inch ones because the 6 inch out shot them. You mentioned EIC so the extra inch might help out. With my SP I use Cci SV and it holds a tight X ring group from sand bags. I’m sure it would be one hole from a random rest. The trigger is prefect and if it’s not it can be adjusted to make it perfect. I want a grip from Dick Horton but money wise I need to wait. Some people have gotten on the band wagon that a 6 inch is nose heavy but it not to me so I don’t know where that comes from. I use the Pardini rings and if they are installed in the right place and are tight they won’t slip. There is a left and right to them and people don’t know that.

Hortons run me $300with shipping.
I have him semi finish and send them to me for final fitting.
Then i send them back for final stippling and oil finish.
So extra round trip is on my dime.

No worries at all.
Just want the OP to have the correct $.
I would advise anyone to try the grips sent with the pistol
and they may feel and fit great.
My case is somewhat unique as I have a thumb knuckle
that has been broken and no tendons in my thumb to permit 
reaching a thumb rest so that makes my grips need a lot of grinding 
by me before they feel correct.

If your just starting out, have family obligations, or just limited resources
I can understand having a hard time justifying the kind of money we spend.
I would bet our average age places us in a group that has an amount of 
disposable income and if we don't make the jump into the equipment we 
may have wanted in the past but could not afford.
Well, in a few years (or days sometime) it will be too late.

From reading every topic on this forum about the SP22 going back a few years before I finally bought mine, I was expecting to need to buy a Rink grip and that the factory Pardini grip would be undersized vs Rink sizes (I have Rinks RH and LH for my Pardini 45 and old 22).  

I've only had mine for a month so I will hold my tongue on other topics but I am very pleased with the factory Pardini grip. It fits my hand better than the custom Rink on my GT45, if that helps. As I bought the BE model SP it has the upswept palm rest, same as the Rinks I have. So far I'm glad I didn't order a set from Rink at the same time as buying the pistol because, for My hand, I'm skeptical the grip can get any better.

I ordered mine from Pardini USA and it arrived at my FFL in 7 calendar days. By the way, don't expect it to come with any hats or stickers or Pardini catalogs.

Full disclosure I have tried to like a Pardini, shot them on multiple occasions, it didn't work for me. Could I spend a few hundred bucks on grips and other gizmos to make it better for me probably, but at what final cost? Looks like $2800-3000+ is cost of entry. 

I also will probably sound like a bit of a jerk here but if you want to buy points, you are better off going to a bullseye clinic/class than buying a new gun. New gun syndrome is definitely a thing (get new gun, shoot extremely well initially because it is different and you are focusing on the fundamentals). The kids shooting Pardini's at Lima didn't just buy a Pardini and magically shoot great, they work hard at performing their best and have a coach. 

With that said, a Pardini is a good gun and works well for quite a few people, just don't go in with the expectation that it will magically fix all your shooting ailments.

Do it.
I have had a SP for 18 months, sold off 3-4 items to fund the project and never regretted it.

I have not has a single feeding or ejection issue with the firearm. I like the stock grips and sights and my plan of buying point did work Smile 

I am a mediocre older shooter and and knowing that I will never out shoot or have to buy another pistol in my life time adds some calmness to the game. The price of additional magazines is a bit disheartening. 

When I did order the pistol from Champion Choice, I did ask if they had one that was built in 2019, early 2020 were some very sad times in Italy and I wanted to make sure the technician had his mind on my pistol at that time.

Another option would be to find a wore out 208 or some type of 1911 conversion and be Apart of the Timed and Rapid Fire Alibi Crew!

While you are being petty, I have seen more 880's shot with a 208 or a conversion this year alone than I have ever seen shot with a Pardini. Zurek shot 889-53x with a Nelson at Remember the Brave earlier this year, a bunch of 880's shot by the AMU at Cardinal, Canton, Perry, and Atterbury. Henderson shot 884-42 at Ohio State Outdoor match with a marvel. 

Pardini's have alibi's just as often as 208's and conversions. Guess what happens if someone drops a pardini mag and the ejector gets bumped?
