I would like to know if anybody has a take on the sr22 ruger vs walter p22?
The walther feels cheaper. The ruger shoots smooth. I like the trigger better and the feel is like a well built gun. Go rent the ruger and shoot it before you buy.
NO PLACE HERE TO RENT. BUT GREAT IDEA.
I have the p22 and I love it. Haven't tried the sr22 yet, but Ruger makes great guns. As yogi said, "when you come to a fork in the road, take it."
THE FIRST MIRACLE of 2013.
I have had a P22 since the recall, many years ago. I have had faultless service from the P22, and it has done heavy duty work helping to teach beginners the fundamentals of safety and shooting, on the range.
I have not even handled the Ruger, but I am certain it is a fine rival. I have had many Rugers, and all were built like battleships and unbreakable through VERY heavy use [especially our SA CAS pistols]. My first Ruger was a Standard Model-Red Eagle, which I bought for $37.50 in 1954. My first reaction to shooting that 22, was--I had no idea I could shoot a semiauto pistol with little or no recoil--that well.
Well holy shit batman, LLE agrees with me. I must say it is nice to not argue about everything. May be short lived but we shall see.
Thanks..Now having a hard time finding the sr22. Ruger back ordered?
