Did you clean it immediately or how many rounds before cleaning? And my Ruger sr 22 came with no manual or paperwork from academy is this normal?

The FIRST thing we did when my wife got her SR22. Learn how to break it down, patch the bore and light lube on the slide, recoil spring, hammer face and barrel. Worked like a charm during the first 100 rounds of Mini-Mags for break in.
Enjoy yours.

I clean any firearm new or used as soon as I get it. The SR-22 is a very easy gun to break down. It's pretty much the same as every other DA pistol. If your not sure how to do it and don't have a manual then I would just watch one of the YouTube videos online. After you do it once you'll have no problem doing it thereafter.

Cleaned when I first got it and each time I use it. You can log on to Ruger and get a manual and some help with cleaning. Take some time and get to know the SR22. For us it has been a good purchase and a good firearm. YouTube is a good source.

Itís a good practice.

Word Of Warning:
If you take down barrel and slide for cleaning. Be sure and close LATCH when you put back on.

I have had 3 SR22's. The first one went 2400 rounds before the first cleaning. It was starting to malfunction at that point. It took a long time to clean
The second one went 1500 rounds before the first cleaning. It wasn't malfunctioning or anything but it needed cleaning.
By the time I got the third one I was cleaning all of my 22s after shooting a brick or so of shooting.

I now follow this procedure for any new 22 -
Pull a patch through the barrel.
Go and shoot about 300 rounds.
Clean and lube.
We used to call this the 10/22 break in period. Nothing counts until after about 300 rounds. After 300 you start paying attention to accuracy and malfunctions.

It didn’t happen to me but I just thought it might happen to someone who doesn’t have a manual.

I clean and lube every gun before I ever shoot them. Should have come with everything that comes in the box.

Mine wouldn't function out of the box until I cleaned it. It has been flawless since.
