Introducing the Ruger SR22

Ruger SR22If you've noticed a trend in new .22LR guns recently, you've clearly been paying attention. It's an easy equation to solve: .22 ammunition is affordable, and in this downtrodden economy, we're all looking to save a little cash. Plus, it's great for small game hunting, plinking and just plain ol' fun at the range. That much isn't new.


After introducing the LCR .22LR earlier this month, the company has announced a second .22 cal. handgun, the Ruger SR22, a scaled-down, lightweight handgun that is designed to cover all the shooting sports.


"Ruger has built a solid reputation for excellence in rimfire pistols with the Mark III and 22/45 product families, and the new SR22 will contribute positively to that reputation," said Chris Killoy, vice president of sales and marketing at Ruger, in a recent press release. "This pistol is feature-packed and an incredible value -- consumers won't find a similar product with everything the SR22 offers at a comparable price. It functions with all types of .22 LR ammunition for extreme reliability; once rimfire enthusiasts pick it up, they won't want to put it down."

The polymer-framed SR22 features an external hammer with a rounded spur, designed for easier cocking and single-action shooting. The SR22 also features two interchangeable rubberized grips that also allows a slim or wider palm swell option without using tools to adjust.


The SR22's aluminum slide is serrated to allow for better grip and slide manipulation on both the front and rear. An underside Picatinny rail with multiple cross slots allows for variable mounting, and a 3-dot sight system features adjustable front and rear sights to account for wind and elevation. In addition, a reversible blade allows shooters to choose between two white dots or a solid black blade.

Other features include a replaceable stainless steel barrel, an ambidextrous manual thumb safety and decocking lever, ambidextrous magazine release and a visual inspection port.

The SR22 is shipped with two 10-round magazines and a soft case. Two finger grip extension floorplates can also be added the SR22's magazine. It will retail for around $400.
