Talk me in or out of an SR22



Log in to see fewer ads
Hey all,
Researched one for a while and like the fact about a steel breach block in an aluminum slide and steel trigger group enclosure frame/rails. No Zamak or zinc in sight.
Shot my friends lady friend's 3.5" and it was nice (2016 improved model from the 1st issued ones from 2012). You guys know the improvements Ruger did.
Shot several mags of various rounds (Rem HV Golden 525 pack, CCI MM in 40SP's & 36HP's, Win Sup-X in 40SP's & 36HP's and not one FTF,FTE or FTF.
Has that tactical feel like a centerfire Glock, XD, S&W Sigma, Walther PPQ, etc. My only other .22 is a revolver and I'm looking for a semi.
I would be looking at the 4.5" and I would right away install an aftermarket takedown latch (machined polymer).
HiViz front sight and replace the rear blade with a white outline "U" because I do not like any 3-dot set up (yes, a Ruger WO for a MKIII will fit). the "U" and fiber optic would get on target real fast.
And either install the 13 round follower kits in both mags or maybe the 15 round bumper kits. Both mods would lose the last shot slide lock. I can count my shots and lock the slide manually when empty. This will eliminate any wear the slide stop does (yes I know about the pin in the slides stop notch and about de-burring and polishing the stop). The stop would never even ride under the aluminum slide like it does when it senses the mag follower pressing up on it as the last shot cycles.
So, this might turn out nice unless there is something I missed during my research.

Why would we want to talk you out of one? They are a nice pistol, and worth every penny.

Just wanting to know any other issues you SR22 owners have. And I'm aware of making sure that the barrel hex screw is tight always.

I've owned one for several years with no issues at all. One of the most unfinicky 22s I ever had. It shoots anything as long as it is high velocity. Some people complain about the upside down safety but I've never found it to be a problem.

You know, I forgot about the reversed safety and the complaints. I never had a problem with it when I was training my friends girlfriend when I finally shot one for the first time last weekend.
Not a concern to me.

I've had one for a couple years and like all the features it has that you typically don't see on a .22 pistol. Like SA/DA, interchangeable palm swell grips, and adjustable rear sight. Eats any ammo I put in it without any issues. It's also a great handgun for teaching new shooters with. Also not that I ever plan to sell it but you can buy one, put 10,000 rounds through it, and still pretty much get back what you paid if you wanted.

My only gripe is the magazine disconnect. I could do without it.
Must be for Cali Cert.

Got the 4.5" today. Very nice and going to mod as stated with the above mods. Bigger grip insert felt best.

Why did you buy such a boring gun? It'll eat anything. Get something exciting like a Sig Mosquito/GSG which will at least give you some malfunctions to deal with! Snore...........

You want some excitement, use 2014 vintage RGB in a timed event.
I would load them for my wife when she was practicing for her CCP.
I could count on at least one misfire in every two mags. Good practice
for second trigger pull and then clearing a dud.
She got her CCP first try!

I am sure if you could talk to the 5 rattlesnakes, 2 raccoons and snarly coyote that mine has dispatched, they would tell you no.

Small ranch, mine is a tool just like my pocket knife.

The SR22 is a little rimfire that has become a favorite of mine. This thing is a lot of fun to shoot. It was used when I got it so I don't know how many rounds were through it. I cleaned it before I ever shot it and it wasn't too awfully dirty inside. I haven't cleaned it since, and it has had nary a hiccup.I decided I'd shoot it until it started giving problems and the I'd clean it again. I know it's had at least 6 boxes of the Federal bulk ammo through it.
