    Looks like a knockoff of the Wather P22 to me. That's not necessarily a bad thing as Ruger is well known for quality workmanship. Has anyone compared the two?

    Yes, I owned the walther p22 junk for about three days before I sold that cheap cap gun like ftf failure. The Ruger is night and day compared to the walther and it's pot metal slide.

    Here is a review that are not mine but I agree with it.

    I agree with just about everything in this review except the take down lever I found to be rather easy. I picked up mine for $315 OTD. Using three different types of ammo I've ran about 300 or so rounds of thru mine with no issues. I cleaned it with MilCom due to this is all I use on my Sig. I plan on finishing the Wally World bulk ammo sometime next week. One thing I must say if for 700 rounds you sure missed the target quit a bit. LOL!! Sorry I had to. LOL!!

    35 bucks is unacceptable. So there is my negative with the new SR22

    Doesn't Ruger give a % off your fist purchase after registering the gun with them?

    Yeah I know. I am cheap. That is a known fact among my friends. That is why I can afford a M1919. I just hate paying more than 15 bucks for rimfire magazines. I can get Glock 17 magazines for less than these

    Pity they can't do a double-stack magazine in a .22LR gun like this. I know I'll catch flack for saying this. But if there were a gun like the Ruger SR-22 that was extremely reliable, no larger than the gun we're talking about already, and held 20 or more rounds.... I'd probably prefer to carry that as a self-defense weapon. My philosophy is that in a crisis situation I may not be able to aim reliably and I'd like to know I have the ability to pull the trigger a whole bunch of times if needed. I'd rather put 5 small holes in a person than 2 bigger ones. I think I'd stand a better chance of one of those holes hitting an area that would stop the threat.

    The Kel Tec PMR 30 is a .22 Magnum pistol that holds 30 rounds. They're not quite as small, but hi capacity.

    Just a quick update on this one, I have two and a half bricks of federal through this weapon now. That is 1400 rounds plus the other 200 misc rounds I have put through it for a total of 1600 rounds. It has not had one single feed or ejection issue. 2 thumbs up Ruger for getting it right.

    Thanks for an excellent review. I'm considering getting one myself. Sounds like a solid gun. I tried the P22 and Mosquito and found them lacking.

    Awesome review. So glad I found this thread. My fiance needs to learn to shoot and I have been looking to get a quality .22LR. I was leaning towards the Walther until this review. Thanks!

    I've been looking for another 22 since I sold my Browning Buckmark...looks like I have found a serious contender. I'm going to have to take a close look at the SR22 soon.
