    I've been looking at them online and thinking about maybe purchasing one.Do they have any jamming or feeding problems.Does all 22's work good in them.I like Ruger quality.Semi-auto pistols that jam are very irritating and I've sold one that made me mad at a loss.Thanks for any information.

    I have shot 2 that friends own,one was brand new still in the wrapper when we tried it.No jams or problems of any kind.I think they are a great little pistol.I really like that it has adjustable,easy to see sights.

    I have had one for about a year now, I love it. Wish it had more than 10 shots but great shooter. I have fed it alot of different ammo with no issues at all. Definite must get!!!! Just get a few extra mags and you are all set.

    I've put about 4k rounds through mine. I love it as do most people I let try it out. Feeds most anything easily.

    I am under the impression we are talking about SR22 pistol, not the SR-22 rifle. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    The title of this post is about a "Ruger SR-22" so we must assume flyingtiger85 is asking about the rifle ... unless he informs us otherwise. :confused:

    I went into Sportsmans Wherehouse the other day and held it in my hand.They are very compact with a nice feel to them.And yes,I was talking about the handgun.I noticed the pallet end display that once had 5 or 6 types of 22 ammo that was stacked about 3 foot high was sold out.They said there was alot of sales on black friday.I can't wait to get the rest of my funds together and purchase one ASAP and go out and shoot it.I just love shooting 22's,pistols and rifles.

    I often wonder what Ruger is thinking.

    Naming a pistol and rifle the same name...brilliant. :rolleyes:

    So what is this thread about?

    I have worked on and test fired a few SR-22 rifles. They both functioned fine after a tear down and a good cleaning.

    Some of the early ones had a magazine problem if I remember correctly. They changed the follower and it's color so you know if it's a newer mag. Not sure of the details, too darn tired to look it. :)

    I love mine, have a hard time deciding whether to shoot the SR22 or the PMR30. Both are a blast and dead on. My SR22 has eaten everything I have fed it so far, runs pretty clean too. I am thinking about getting another and doing some custom colors on it. Time and $ will tell.

    shot one and loved it. But I bought the colt 1911-22. It eats everything I put in it.

    Did I miss something? The SR22 is a double action with a fixed barrel, so not at all a M1911 style action. Did I misunderstand?

    But as for the gun itself, all reports are that it is very reliable and rugged with no feed problems, accepting all brands and types of .22 LR ammo.

    No Popeye, you understood correctly, this is a thread about SR22 pistol like the first post states. The gun is awesome in my book, It keeps wanting to eat more and more and all different flavors. Accurate as hell too.
