Walther p22 vs Ruger sr22
#21
Ruger had some problems on early model SR22's with the slide takedown lever failing. I am pretty sure it has been taken care of, I have not heard of any more failures in quite some time. If you do decide to go for the Ruger get a new one, not used, and you should not have any problems.
I actuallly had allot of FTF & FTE when I first got mine. I eventually noticed that it only happened with 1 magazine ( they come with 2) and not the other. I bought 2 more, returned\exchanged the defective one with Ruger and havent had any problems since.

Yes, the .22LR is pretty small for self defense. In the winter, or colder months depending where you live, go for the hottest solid nose you can get, preferably jacketed as well. The lead nose and hollow points will expand when it contacts several layers of clothing and not penetrate to the "vitals." Think of someone bundled up with 1 or 2 long john tops, a heavy shirt, some sort of fleece or sweater and a parka type coat with an insulating liner. Thats allot of layers for a .22LR to get through!

Thanks for all the good info on either side. I'm just buying this for plinking, and what not, but there is a lot of good info for those looking to carry, as well.

i have the p22. it's an older model and the nickel slide did get chewed up a bit. it still functions relatively reliably if kept clean and i would trust it for plinking, training, and suppressed zombie duty. since the new slides were beefed up, i'd probably trust that one for carry.

they used to make a 13 round follower for the magazine. the trade off was that the slide hold open feature no longer worked, which i don't like.

The problems that the SR22s had have been remedied, just buy one that the serial # is 361xxx or above.

Hmmm, Mine is S/N 360XXX. Do you know what changes were made after 361XXX?

They put in a steel slide stop pin and modified the take down release lever.

After much debate and research, I picked up an SR22 at Ace's today!
