Right Handed

What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

I bought this as my “starter” gun because the caliber makes this easy to shoot and “less intimidating” to learn on. The low cost of the .22 ammo also makes this ideal for a beginner to spend a lot of time target practicing.

Tell us about shooting this gun.

Accurate. Easy to shoot with little recoil. Although I’m not sure if this is only my gun; it is LOUD.

How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?

Recoil is very manageable.

How does it fit your hand, are the controls of this gun easy to use? (Safeties, slide pull, magazine release, trigger pull, etc.)

Personally I love how the SR22 fits in my hand. My whole hand fits on the grip! The safety is a bit sticky and I have small hands so it can be a bit of struggle to get it to release easily. Slide pull is easy to manage. The magazine release and trigger pull are crisp.

Do you like the sights on this gun?

Sights are a crisp white on my black SR22, so I feel the sights are easy to use.

How reliable is it?

Very reliable depending on my ammo 🙂 I do have some jamming issues depending on what ammo I use as well as if the gun gets dirty.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?


Was it easy to take down and clean?

As a beginner gun there is a little bit of learning but this gun has only a few pieces so it comes apart and cleans easily. Not too difficult to put back together either!

Is there anything you dislike about shooting this gun?

It is much louder than I thought a smaller caliber would be. Jamming issues.

For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

Great .22 option! Easy to use and fun.

Would you recommend this gun? If no, do you have a preferred gun?
