That thing is akin to them having built a 4" single action break-open .22 revolver and calling it the "new" SP101 in .22LR!

If this turns out to be a reliable, accurate little gun without the early production recalls, it could be a winner.

Think about how freakin ugly some of the .22 autos are......

This one looks decent, hopefully it will perform.

One thing I noticed is that the web site states that the slide is made of aluminum. The Walther has a die cast slide. I am not sure of the material
but I know it is not aluminum.

Hopefully the gun holds up well and is reliable.

If it can't hang with the MK's in terms of accuracy, and trigger .... not personally interested.

Looks like a very 'LCP-like' trigger.

I probably will not get one although it looks like a good pistol. I had a Walther P22 and got rid of it. It was too small for my hands. I prefer my MK IIs and 22/45. Even my daughter would rather shoot a MK II over the P22.

It's tough to out-do any of the MK's or 22/45's in almost any category.

I guess if you like little plastic replicas of larger caliber 'combat pistols', it would appeal to you. And ... I guess if the size is equal, it could be a good training tool, just like a 22 1911 would be. I'm sure it's a nice shooting gun ... just not my style.

One thing I REALLY like is how Ruger integrated the mag pad into the grip ... that is very nicely done.

When it has a threaded barrel it'll interest me.

I've had the Sig and Walther, neither of which were significantly reliable or accurate. It appears the SR22 is much more reliable. I have MKIIIs for pure accuracy. This one will make a good host for suppressors.

Not in the least bit interested (as I gaze at the beauty of my Mark III in Stainless)...

I doubt Ruger is offering this as a "competition" to the Mark III or 22/45 lines. This is new market stuff.

Have a 22/24 MK III....and I am enjoying the living daylights out of it. What a hoot. While I like the looks of the new SR22, I don't think I'll give up the 22/45 just yet. Nor do I feel the need to add another 22.

If I do, it'll be a 22 revolver. Just for more fun.

Ruger will have available a replacement threaded barrel for this model on their Shopruger.com website from what I have heard...

I don't see how it won't poach away sales from the Mark III or especially the 22/45.

If its not the same manual of arms as the SR line, why is it named the SR22?

I would bite if they had made it as a true rimfire version of the SR9.

It's not the same class of gun. Nobody currently considering a MK or 22/45 would buy this thing instead if they knew what they were doing. It's a casual plinker from what I've read and heard, which is fine if that's what you're looking for. As much as the MK's and 22/45's can be considered that as well .... they are far more target and accuracy oriented ... even straight from the factory with no mods a MK or 22/45 would blow the SR22 away in accuracy and trigger. It wouldn't even be close.

I have no doubt it's a nice little gun if you're in the market for a gun like that. Just not my cup of tea ... as other polymers aren't either.
