Can someone enlighten me why someone would own this gun? Is it just because its a tad cheaper still to shoot .22lr than say a 9mm? I'm not being a dick, I am just curious what use cases one would use a SR22. I already own a SR9c, LC9s, LCP, so just wondering what justifies $300 on a SR22.

I don't have this particular one but bought something similar to introduce firearms to my girls. They were scared at first to fire a 9mm but after working with this for awhile, they're now comfortable shooting 9mm and 5.56.

it's not a "tad" cheaper, it's massively cheaper.

9mm, on sale, is 20 cents a round for the cheapest stuff out there- and 25 cents a round for good subsonic ammo.

22 is 6-7 cents a round on sale, and only ~8 cents for good subsonic ammo.

That's about a 2.5-3x price difference per round.

For folks who shoot a lot that adds up.

(And that's in addition to the value using a 22 as a trainer for new shooters might offer)


And I mention subsonic because 22 is more fun to shoot suppressed than 9mm is- and while this particular model of the SR22 doesn't come threaded, they do sell one that does (or you can get an aftermarket threaded barrel)


Plus the SR22 is very reliable, easy to break down (unlike many other 22 pistols from Ruger and other brands too)....has a lifetime warranty like all Rugers, and it looks/operates more similarly to "regular" caliber semi autos than many 22 pistols do.



Now, all that said, it's my second recommendation when people ask for advice on buying a 22 pistol.

The Beretta NEOS is #1. It's even more reliable (it's the only pistol I've used that cycles CCI Quiet reliably) and it's about 30% cheaper too. But it's looks are a very love it or hate it thing versus the much more traditional looking SR22.

No, they don't actually.


It's weird, you thread crap every 22 gun thread with that exact claim, then never support it.

Here's you doing the same "cost too much" nonsense quoted from over 20 other threads-

To add to Knightshade's reply, the SR22 appears to have similar controls to the SR9 and SR40. This would give it some practicality in being a practice pistol if either of the other two are carry pieces.

Agree... I introduced target shooting to my nephews and nieces when they are about 8 years old using the Beretta NEOS. The kids love how the Neos looks because it looks like a laser gun and for me I never had any issues with it and I can feed any cheap ammo I can find and it always goes bang everytime.

I guess I was thinking on the lines of ammo availability. During the shortage era of the 22lr, I was afraid to use any of the 22lr bulk pack I have. My goal was to teach my son using the Savage Mark II long rifle. I guess perhaps down the road I could look into picking up one of these 22 pistols.

So in summary, good for volume target practice and training pistol?

Yup.... and also very easy to clean and not very picky on brand of ammo, which isn't true of many 22 pistols (probably like whatever crap ones the EVERYTHING IS TOO EXPENSIVE dude has)

In fact regarding reliability, when the SR22 came out the joke was it was "A Walther P22 that actually works" because it looked very similar, but unlike the P22 didn't choke on half the ammo you tried to use with it.

I don't need it, but I'm always glad to see firearm deal on SD. Seems like they are being blacklisted most places these days.

Hadn't heard/seen that on the ones I've used... the good news it's a Ruger, so free repairs no matter how old the gun is.
