    I've owned an SR22 for awhile and I have no significant issues with the function with the exception of an intermittent failure to feed with one of the magazines. That's a project for another day.

    My question to other owners of the same pistol is about barrel leading. I find that every time I shoot the weapon it is necessary to remove the barrel from the frame and de-lead it. I have never owned a pistol that leaded up as much and in such a short period of time as this one does. Other than the extra work involved in cleaning the gun, I find it a pleasure to shoot.

    Any other folks out there experience similar issues?

    My wife has the sr 22, owned it for about a year. We do just a basic cleaning after each range visit never had a buildup problem. Might be your ammo, we use federal, blaser and Cci with no problems.

    We have about 1000 rounds through our sr22 and just cleaned it for the first time.. There was a lot of residue but the gun was still shooting like a champ.. I think that is the nature of 22s..
