I want that new plastic Ruger .22 pistol

I haven't fooled with all my pistols in years. So one day I stop off at a strip mall for a yogurt and there is a small gun store next to it. I wander in and was looking at all the new crap and spotted a Walther P22 and thought it was cool. Almost bought it. I already have enough center fire mil spec shit and just like plinking with cheap ammo. Have a bull barrel SS Mk3 but its too heavy and long to toss in my pocket and a bitch to field strip.

Well anyway, I manage to leave without buying. So a couple weeks ago I see this new Ruger 22 and it seems like it might be quite a bit better in all ways.

Anybody got one?

Are you talking about the Ruger 22/45?

Hard to decipher what he is talking about.
It might be the latest offering from Ruger here..

What new rugar?

I haven't heard and can't find any info about a new Ruger 22 pistol. Do you know what they call it?

My fav pocket gun for walking in the woods is a SIG Trailside. These guns shoot great.



I also have a Sig Mosquito. The Mosquito is not a well thought of as the Trailside and good deals can be found. Lots of people report jamming issues and the trigger pull is more mil spec than target. I found that if keep the gun a little wet (oil where parts rub together), the gun shoots all day long without any problems.


FWIW, most 22 semi-autos work much better with generous amounts of oil.

The 22 pistol I have always dreamed of is the Browning Medalist.

I've been wanting a P22 for years ever since my first trip to a range where a buddy let me shoot his.

An awesome little pistol.

The SR22 is the first .22 pistol to make me think twice about the P22.

I have a P22 and it's a cool little pistol. It does have the occasionaly non-feed though, often enough to make me wonder about it. If I were buying today I'd get the Ruger.

22LR ammo seems to be very hit and miss. My Ruger MKIII doesn't like to shoot anything but CCI, and never has a problem with that. I love the MKIII (mine is the Hunter model, SS with fiber optic sights and the 6 7/8" fluted barrell, gorgeous gun) but it's a freaking nightmare to disassemble and clean. I'd shoot it a lot more if it wasn't such as hassle, but I may end up with one of these SR22 pistols too.

Well I hope they didn't clone all of the P22's issues. I have one that has been a festering piece of shit from the time it was new. I've found I'm far from alone. But fortunately someone here pointed me to the P22 Bible, and I've been able to figure out what the problem is. I just need to do the work, and for perhaps the first time the 5 + years it will actually feed ammo with some semblance of consistency.

One other direction for a .22 pistol- I have a Browning Buckmark it is a fantastic little gun and actually my most enjoyable gun to shoot. very accurate and will operate with any ammo I have tried with it. It also just feels right in the hand also.

Don't tear it down every time you shoot. Shoot it till you notice it being nasty. Drop the mag, lock the bolt back and turn the gun where the mag well is up. Squirt some gun scrubber into the chamber area and also in the slot in the middle of the bolt to push any funk out the front of the bolt. Use an old toothbrush on the bolt face and the breech end of the barrel, prop the gun up on some newspaper to drain the gunk off, run a brush and patch through the barrel and wipe it down, put a drop of oil on the shiny spots and you're good to go.
Has worked well for me on MKI's and MKII's with thousands of rounds.

Same here- I currently own several handguns and the wimpy little Browning Buckmark is by far my favorite.

Seems like the P22 is hit or miss....I filed the rough edges off the trigger bar ears after I got mine to limit slide wear and it has fed everything I have ever put in it without fail. The only issues I ever have is the occasional FTF caused by using cheap bulk ammo.
