It's a single action rimfire revolver I'm considering for squirrel hunting.

I hunt squirrel high in the Alleghenies where the light weight of a handgun is a real asset. I have an accurate Belgian Browning Medalist that I use on my own property, but am looking for something I can take to the national forest and game lands.
(you can't hunt with autoloaders or double action revolvers in PA)

Anybody have experience with this revolver. I'm wondering if it is accurate enough.

They are certainly accurate enough, but if yours is a 22lr/22wmr combo it will most likely be more accurate with the 22wmr... 22wmr is .224 (like the 223, 220 swift, etc) and 22lr is .221... so the LR bullets will wobble slightly in the barrel..
