The Ruger SR22 is a semi-automatic, double-action/single-action pistol with an exposed hammer that utilizes a straight blowback action and is, as its name suggests, chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. Featuring an extremely light weight and a design that shares ergonomics with the rest of Ruger's SR series, the SR22 is a versatile pistol that is perfect for plinking, target shooting, small-game hunting and much, much more. Each SR22 comes with two 10-round magazines.
It was in 1949 that Sturm, Ruger & Company, Incorporated, more commonly known as Ruger, was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm. Since then, the Connecticut-based arms manufacturer has been recognized as a leader in centerfire and rimfire handguns and rifles and renowned for their reputation regarding both reliability and durability. It is that reputation that leads the company to produce firearms like the Ruger SR series. More importantly, it is that very same reputation that allows the company to build on successful firearms like the SR series and produce exceptional additions like the Ruger SR22, which is surely seeking to surpass the performance of predecessors like the Ruger Standard and the Ruger 22/45 in terms of both quality and performance.
The Ruger SR22 pistol features a 3 1/2 inch barrel and an overall length of just over six inches. Its aerospace-grade anodized aluminum slide contains front and rear serrations and joins a Zytel® polymer frame to combine for a pistol that weighs in at 17 1/2 ounces, making it easily handled by shooters of all skill levels. But that is not all. The SR22 contains a wealth of other features, including adjustable iron sights, two interchangeable rubberized grips, ambidextrous controls and a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail for the attachment of lights and lasers. As noted, each pistol also includes two 10-round magazines for a "10+1" capacity.
The Ruger SR22 may look a bit like the Walther P22, but it has a unique style and high performance that is all its own – unsurprising consider it was made by a company with over 60 years of experience with rimfire pistols. The Ruger SR22 is an excellent choice for:
