SR22 Pistol



Log in to see fewer ads
Just saw on Facebook that Ruger now has a SR22 Pistol and it's MRSP at $399. They are really starting to pump out a lot of new .22s lately and, so far, I'm liking this one.

http://www.ruger.com/products/sr22Pistol/index.html

I doubt it, but wonder what's the odds they'll bring out a .22 conversion one day?

Guess you beat me to it, lol

Nice looking gun so far. Think this may be moving to the top of my .22 autos list.

Range report? And comparison to the Sig and the Walther?

I keep telling myself I already have enough .22 pistols…………….but I guess one more can’t hurt.

Weird that the thumb saftey is opposite that of a typical auto (swept down to fire and up for saftey).

I wonder if this is a Umarex design licensed or copied. Looks like it to me.

Just what I am looking for. I was considering a Walther P22, but some of the issues and materials concern me.
I usually don't buy first year pistols, but I might make an exception.

I wonder why it has no resemblance to the SR22 rifle? Kind of confusing. Ah! but what is in a name?

Thought the Charger went tactical...

Yeah, my first thought was that it resembled a Walther P22. In keeping with Ruger's tradition, I'd be inclined to say it's a knock off.

The SR 22’s are For Sale in the Classified section on the Ruger Forum for $309 shipped. I have mine on the way.

It does have that German-esque look to it doesn't it? That said, it looks like a neat gun & should offer a good buy for the money if reliable - Ruger has always had a habit of taking ideas from elsewhere, combining them with their own ideas, and making something unique and affordable when they are done So I would hate to call what Ruger does a 'knock off' though I guess you could say that....I prefer to think of it more as 'creativity in reverse engineering' or something clever like that

Either way, I'd love to get my mitts on one of these....I have looking at the LC9 as a potential carry gun for some time, but this might be a more affordable, and practical choice for most of what I would do with it It looks to be a much more functional, and hopefully better made, iteration of the unimpressive Sig Mosquito....lets hope this is another good value hit from Ruger

Kind Regards,

~SH~

I think that down for safe is pretty common for pistols where the safety also is also a decocker.

Yeah, he gets them early. We should all be so lucky, but then all of the manufacturers would go out of business. Actually, I think that he has to return them.
