Iain Harrison Reviews the Ruger SR22

The .22 rimfire has been a big part of my training regimen since the great ammo drought of 2009. For the rifle component, I like the Nordic AR 22 conversion, but finding a reliable pistol counterpart isn't easy. When the Ruger SR22 showed up last week, I felt duty-bound to give it a good look over.


If you've ever picked up a Walther P22, you'll get a sense of deja vu when you encounter the Ruger. They're almost exactly the same size and shape, but while the Walther has a cast zinc slide, the Ruger's is machined from aluminum, with serrations allowing for better grip and slide manipulation.

The SR22 also features an ambidextrous mag release and safety, making the gun as easy to use to lefties as it is to righties, plus an external hammer with a rounded spur for easy single-action shooting.
