    Ruger SR22 Rimfire pistol?

    Ruger® SR22™ Rimfire Pistol Models

    Any thoughts?

    Personally, I have always been disappointed at the .22 options. You either get a pocket rocket like the Beretta 'shoot your finger off'' snubbys, the long and unwieldy 'target shooting' Rugers, or the cheap foreign knockoffs of production 9mms and .45s. I've always wanted a service-style and sized pistol chambered in .22. The question is... is it any good?

    No... but I generally don't use youtube reviews anyway... when I can watch video, I turn on the TV :)

    Wow, Hickok45 needs to spend more time on a treadmill and less time on the range!

    Looks like a neat plinking gun.

    I just picked up one this last Monday. Reading a lot of reviews and nothing but good things. I bought two different types of ammo and headed to the range this Sunday. Take down of the Ruger is very simple and no tools required like the Walther. It has been cleaned and ready to go.

    Finally got to shoot the Ruger. Very impressed by this little gun. NO FTF's or anything with 200 rounds fired. Smooth and accurate. The friend I went with was also very impressed and was shooting his P226 with the 22LR conversion. A few FTF's for him. One of the guys working the range came by and was checking out all the guns we had. I pointed out the new Ruger and let him shoot. He was impressed . I shot two types of ammo the CCI Mini Mags and the Winchester HV. On the target was some of the P226 and just running ammo thru the Ruger. Once I saw the Ruger wasnt going to have issues or anything you can see the group of shots on this one target. Overall=

    Nice... when the budget recovers from my last firearms purchase, I'll have to get my hands on one :)

    from all accounts it's a great gun with very few issues(besides a couple with loose barrel nuts from the factory). a lot fo guys claim though that the grips are very small so larger handed fellows might have trouble with it. all comparisons I've seen blow the sig mosquito and walther p22 out of the water

    So far the barrel is tight. I'll keep an eye on it though!

    ^^^ it was only a few isolated incidents, I think it might have just been one sloppy factory worker and they caught it pretty quick and "fixed" the situation

    Interesting...My barber picked one up recently. I'll keep nagging him about it. I'd love to have a reliable .22 semi-auto pistol.

    Yep - when I get some more cash, this little baby is on my list of guns to buy. I hope it is better made than my Walther P22. I still love the P22, but I must confess it is not made very well.

    Ah, so now I have a reason to sell my MKIII 22/45. I have two of them, one is the low-cost, blued with integral polymer grips, the other is the stainless target with the cocobolo grips. I'd sell the low-cost one, keep the other, and buy one of these.

    From what I've experienced, the Ruger guns are just about the most reliable guns you can buy.

    I just picked one up. Changed the grip to the larger grip. I love it. Eats anything I feed it. Trigger is good and is smoothing out. Accurate and a great cheap alternative to train drawing and shooting on the move with. I am going to shoot the he double hockey sticks out of this one!! It took someone long enough to make a reliable compact one. Good solid build quality. Smith and walther and sig weren't reliable enough. Two thumbs up to ruger yet again!
