i glad you went with the ruger. when you compare a p22, and a sr22 they do look like the same pistol. the differences are hard to spot at first. and some you cant see. the p22 mag release is a little lever on the rear of the trigger gaurd. the sr22 is a standerd button release right where it should be on the handle.the rugers handle can be changed very easily, just a quick pull. the ruger slide is made from aircraft grade alluminum. the p22 is pot metals( odds n ends all melted together). the p22 will function good with bulk ammo, it just takes awhile as already mentioned. had to put over 1000rnds of cci through one before it would take any bulk ammo. havent tried bulk ammo with the sr22 but intend to later today. ruger is made in USA. walther is imported

The older p22's where known for having ftf and fte issues. The newer ones seem to be improved. Ruger is the way to go when looking for .22

Yeah my p22 is from I believe 2002 and its the model with the compensator on the front. Both of which might have something to do with it acting up. Very shortly i will take it out see what happens and report back after a good once over since I haven't shot it in over a year.

My P22 is back at S&W for repair. It's a cute little thing, fairly light, but too questionable. My 22/45 rocks, eats everything and has never given me an issue that I didn't directly cause.

In my experience the sr22 is much easier to break down and clean. Other than that they are hard to tell apart.

Ya i agree when i was purchasing my Sr22 I had the p22 and it side by side and withouth the logos on there seemed like the same gun.. and then there's the mosquito........ Lol its to bulky if I wanted a gun like the mosquito I'd just get a 9mm.

I have a Ruger 22/45. I have probably had it for about 10 years. I will pass it on to my son when he is old enough to get his own place. We have put many thousands of rounds through it. But it still shoots like the day I first opened the box. It is not the least bit picky about what I feed it. I almost never clean it. It is a pain in the butt to clean. But I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 22.
