New SR22
1 Attachment(s)
Y wife said she would buy me a new handgun for Christmas. I knew she would not go for the SR1911, because of cost. I decided to get either the SR22 or SR45. I liked the SR45, but since I like the SR1911 better, decided to get the 22 and wait for the1911. She won't let me shoot it until after Christmas though.

That's tough. :(

It is. When I bought it I was going to shoot it before I came home. However I ran into an old co-worker who was looking for a carry gun to carry when she works at her rental properties. She was a little uncomfortable with the choice and process. So I stayed and helped her. That took my shooting time, but I felt it was furthering our cause, so I did I. Another CCW, firearm owner and shooter is a good thing!

I love my SR22! It is by far the most fun plinker I have.
Unfortunately I have had problems with it but Ruger being Ruger and having the best Costomer service out there is making it right.

Has anyone had any ammo that the SR22 had problems with?

+1000 on the SR22. It is a fun shooter to be sure, fits the hand great and does not feel like a 'little' gun

This is what my mother came home with when I took her shopping for her first pistol. It's a great gun. Kinda tiny, almost subcompact. But it's accurate and will gobble up bulk ammo.

It's a slight oddball design. DA/SA rimfire, with a fixed barrel and decocker. But I like it enough that I'll probably add the threaded barrel version for myself in the near future.

Has anyone spent time with the SR22 AND the SW Walther PK22?

To much MIM for me on the Walther PK22, was hoping that the SR22 might be a big improvement?

I have a buddy who has a pk22. Constantly jamming. The slide itself isn't very smooth. I hear nothing but good things about the sr22

I have a couple of SR22's the kids shoot the sh!t out of them . They will eat any ammo out there besides sub sonics , they are just to underpowered to cycle it . Very accurate , very reliable and tons of fun. I would say we have ran well over 3000 rds thru them . They do need cleaned after 500 or so rounds or they will have issues . But they are the most reliable 22lr hand gun out there . Ruger has mastered the .22 lr handgun market
