This new gun from Ruger seems to be getting pretty good reviews. I finally got one in my hands and it might be a contender for a light, accurate, reasonable, semi auto 22.http://www.ruger.com.../index.html?r=y

I picked up my SR22 pistol last night. There are waiting lists for these things now. My gun store got in three and the waiting list was for about twentyfive. Cabelas already raised the price to $350 (I paid $300). I definitely am using the second thicker grip and magazine pinky extender for my size hand. I hope to shoot it this weekend. The guns are CA legal according to Rugers web site. The guns claim to fame is accuracy and the ability to eat ANY 22 ammo from subsonic to stingers including the cheapies. Many reviews have tested this and found it to be true. Ruger is going to offer a threaded barrels for states that allow suppressors.

Rugers stated target market. The SR22 is a rugged, scaled-down version of a full-sized pistol, perfect for plinking, target shooting and small game hunting. I think perfect plinker and tactical trainer (for small CCW). A semi-auto that eats all kinds of ammo reliably is definitly an improvement to existing options.

I shot an entire brick of Blazer cheapie 22s through my new SR22 w/o a single failure. A Ruger Mark XX or Buckmark wont touch it on reliability of any ammo.

They are. Actually four of us ordered them and we have over 1500 rounds through the four with only two failures to feed that we are blaming on ammo. When you see the breech magazine design you will see why they feed nearly any ammo with enough omph. The round from the magazine nearly lines up with the barrel requiring very little if anything from a feed ramp. Its an impressive design - especially compared to the legacy guns like my Buckmarks.A review by grandpa glock
