Ruger SR22 Pistol Review

A jack-of-all-trades gun, it's great for everything from informal target shooting and plinking to basic training and self-defense. It's lightweight, durable and comes with a manual safety.

The Ruger SR22 is a budget-friendly pistol that is suitable for anyone who wants to get into rimfires without breaking the bank. Its comfortable grip and crisp trigger make it a good choice for beginners, and its versatility and easy use will appeal to more experienced shooters as well.

This is a slick little pistol that is very accurate for its 3.5-inch barrel length. I tested it with a variety of ammunition at various distances, and the pistol came on target quickly and easily.

It also comes with a manual safety that is very easy to operate, making it great for kids or people who are not used to a pistol. Its light weight and compact size also make it an ideal pocket carry option.

Another thing I like about this pistol is that it has a fixed stainless steel 3.5-inch threaded barrel. It makes it very versatile as you can easily install a muzzle brake or compensator for noise suppression.

It also has an integral Picatinny rail that is very stable with most aftermarket laser sights and lights. However, it can be a bit challenging for beginner shooters to remove the buttstock, so be sure to consult with a gunsmith before you try.
