Misinformation on sr22



Log in to see fewer ads
It never ceases to amaze me the incorrect information that is occassionally presented on this site. I guess it goes along with the more often excellent stuff. I recently bought an SR22 and am very happy with it. I can understand how the same pistol can have differences. That's just manufacturing differences. What I can't understand is how someone can trash something with misinformation, ie - "rear sight on SR22 is plastic" - it's not; "one grip goes over the other" - it does not; "magazine hard to remove" - mine falls out; and my favorites : "I would not buy this gun because the safety goes the wrong way" or "because it does not come with a threaded barrel".
For the new members to this site some advice: don't believe everything you read here.

I can't wait to buy the gun! I'm just waiting to see what happens with the threaded barrel. I handled one at my LGS and it feels amazing, much better built than my P22. Lots of haters out there on this one, but I'm a fan

Other than the lack of threaded barrel and the reverse direction of the de-cocker safety, I haven't heard any of those complaints, but, then again, I haven't really looked at other forums in a while and remember seeing some bogus claims on some in the past. I don't really need a threaded barrel and plan on getting a P95, which also has a de-cocker/safety, so I can't wait to get a SR22P next month, especially with all the positive reviews it's getting here on RFC.

I don't understand the fascination of the threaded barrel. It has a 3 1/2 inch barrel. It's going to be loud no matter what you hang on the front of the barrel.

Mine functions flawlessly. I fed it AutoMatch, Mini-Mags and Stingers over the weekend. Easily shot 3 inch groups at 10 yards. A target pistol it's not. As a fun to shoot plinker, it has no match!

In My Humble Opinion.

Unless you put a suppressor on the end, then I imagine it would be pretty quiet. I'm thinking this: http://www.gem-tech.com/store/pc/OUTBACK-IID-13p19.htm

I have put my can on my P22 and it's quiet, I can't imagine the Ruger SR22 would be much louder...

Just saying....

Apparently these people have short memories or lack of experience. All of Ruger's P-series centerfire pistols with a decocker or a decocker/safety had their safety/decocker operate the same way, down to decock/on-safe, up to fire. Also, all of Smith & Wessons metal frame pistols in all thee generations had their safety/decocker operate the same way.

Yeah, it's different from a 1911 safety but it's not unusual or rare.

BTW, why hasn't the SR22 gotten it's own forum heading under "Ruger Semi-Auto Pistols" along with the various Marks and the 22/45?
