Ruger introduces SR22 Pistol


Southport, CT: January 2, 2012 – Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the new Ruger® SR22™ pistol, the do-it-all .22 pistol for the shooter who appreciates style and demands reliability. The SR22 is a rugged, scaled-down version of a full-sized pistol, perfect for plinking, target shooting and small game hunting. The lightweight SR22 has modern styling and is fun to shoot while using inexpensive rimfire ammunition.

“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, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “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,” he concluded.

The SR22 has light double-action and crisp single-action trigger pulls. Its external hammer is designed with a rounded spur for easy cocking and single-action shooting. The SR22 features a polymer frame and two interchangeable (no tools required) rubberized grips with angled serrations, allowing shooters to select either a slim or wider palm swell option. The aerospace grade aluminum slide has serrations on both front and rear for better grip and slide manipulation. The easy-to-use underside Picatinny rail features multiple cross slots for variable mounting of most popular accessories.

A reversible blade allows shooters to select two white dots or a solid black blade. Other SR22 features include a stainless steel replaceable barrel, an ambidextrous manual thumb safety/decocking lever, ambidextrous magazine release, plus a visual inspection port to determine the load status of the pistol. The SR22 includes two finger grip extension floorplates that can be added to the magazine for comfort and grip. Each SR22 is also shipped with two 10-round magazines and a soft case.

Oh look, Ruger is building a Walther P-22.

I wish they'd build the LCP in .22
They are doing the LCR in .22

I'll be anxious to see these at SHOT.
The Aluminum slide alone is enough for me. We've had a couple of Walters over the years...the zinc is prone to cracking. The last P22 taught a few boys handgun shooting... it was pretty worn when I traded it away.

I like the Ruger decocker also... the P22 was lacking that... I find it a nice touch myself.
After Ruger gets the mandatory recall out of the way I'll be looking for one of these.
I checked it out at SHOT. It looks and feels like a P-22...

I really liked the LCR-22. Still waiting for ruger to introduce an LCP-22 (they said no way in hell)

Pretty disappointed that their SP101 in .22 is only 8 rounds...
Lookin 4 a Gd 22... Whats 1 of those cost.?
Ive owned one of these since the first week of release. I have had zero malfunctions save some ftfs from bad ammo and one of my magazines had a bad follower spring. Ruger sent me a new one and a prepaid envelope to ship the damaged one back withing 4 days of my call. It is a hungry lil beast and has shot every thing from 15 year old winchester to cci velociter, in one session i put about 1000 rounds through it and even filty it feed reliably. From the bench I was able to manage very nice groopings bout .5in from 15 yards which is good for me. I have never been more pleased with a .22 pistol of this size in my life. The only thing I dont like about it is the magazine disconnect.
