Ruger SR22 Simple, Reliable, Comfortable
Roy Lin
The SR22 is the newest .22LR from Ruger. It is instantly familiar to anyone who has held a Walther P22, but the SR22 stands tall where the P22 falls short. The small SR22 has a true full size feel, the thumb safety is easy to operate, the trigger behaves like DA/SA should, and thanks to the interchangeable grips; my large hands fit the piece nicely. The fized barrel keeps it very accurate, and it feeds all ammo with very few complaints.

The SR22 is the latest .22LR pistol from Ruger, makers of the extremely accurate MKIII pistol line. It features an ambidextrous thumb safety and decocker, three dot dovetail sights and the rear sight is adjustable. The SR22 has a double action/single action trigger and feels like a full size trigger. This is a great pistol for training and instruction. The grip is interchangeable between either a smaller one, great for teaching children or a larger one that will give you a full sized feel when practicing. Recoil is what you would expect from a .22LR, though a bit more than the larger MKIII pistols.

The pistol comes with two magazines, each with changeable base plates which provide a slight pinky extension for those of us with larger hands. Disassembly is easy; once the firearm has been cleared, simply rotating the takedown lever inside the trigger guard and rack the slide to the rear and lift off.

Anyone looking for a semi auto .22LR for practice or just for some cheap plinking will find this to be a great pistol and a step up from the popular Walther P22 pistol!
