Others here and some range friends have put them in their SR22's and they have had NO issues. Curious to see what effect this has on my ammo selection. Mostly CCI. Can't wait to try it on different ammo. Love this Ruger.

Anyone have any ammo issues after replacing the guide rod assembly with the Galloway metal guide rod assembly? What changes if any did you come across? Going next week to range with my SR22 and looking forward to trying ammo. Mostly use CCI Mini Mags, Blazzer and CCI SV. (and others with no issues just some more accurate than others)

aftermarket recoil spring guides?

fyi about galloway captured spring, steel guide rod for ruger sr22: it unscrews itself at muzzle end after 500-1000 rounds, making gun inoperative. i contacted galloway without luck. so...at every cleaning i ensure that the galloway guide rod is screwed in tight, and my oem plastic guide rod and spring now always comes with my sr22.

the sr22 is a truly fine “goldilocks” pistol. mine regularly flies with this snowbird for plinking fun and protection.

Went to range after installing the Galloway Stainless Steel guide rod. Had issues with the SR22 hanging up after first and sometimes second shot. Would not feed and the upper failed to move forward after the first or second round. Tried multiple magazines and could not get the SR22 to cycle. I put the original guide rod assembly back in and it ran flawless as it did before. Decided to keep original in and ran 250 rounds of ammo with out fail. Will go back to the drawing board on this and may try another attempt when I get more flexible range time. I love this Ruger SR22 and may decide just to leave well enough alone.

Had more time at the range without it being busy and installed the "Galloway Stainless Steel guide rod assembly" again. This time it ran and cycled without issue. I only tested with 100 rounds of CCI Mini Mags CPRN for this test and will return with more ammo for a more rigorous test before keeping the metal guide rod. This test was more out of being curious than anything else. The original guide rod assembly works great in both of our SR22's but just had to see for myself if the Galloway metal rod would run. Several range friends have Galloways in theirs for several years now without any issue. Our daughter has the TK in hers and it runs as advertised as well.
