I bought mine early this year, when they first started shipping to dealers. Although it's a bit picky about ammo (hates virtually all round-nosed lead, likes truncated HP just fine) that's no different from other rimfires I own(ed). Once I settled on bulk-pack Winchester copper HPs, Federal Spitfire and various CCIs, it has been a joy to shoot. If I go to the range with friends, everyone wants to try the SR22, and a couple of them have bought SR22s of their own.

Mine replaced a Walther P22 that was just too "glitchy" for my tastes, and it makes a fine practice stand-in for my Beretta PX4 9mm subcompact. It doesn't hurt that I bought it new for $289.

I have one, it's been great. Flawless after the first 50-100 rounds. Probably at least 2500-3000 now. Doesn't care what kind of ammo. Accurate enough for me to use in my indoor rimfire league.

Everybody's got one. Everybody loves it. Except for the few whose takedown levers have shattered (see the discussions over at

Love mine. My favorite plinker.

i love mine. Mine likes CCI copper plated rounds. It wasn't a fan of Winchester X something or other: it would actually FTF and bend the cartridge quite often, like 4 times in 40.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.

I have two SR22pbs and really like them. They feed any kind of ammo with 100% reliability after several thousand rounds. Pretty darned accurate too!
The difference between a citizen and a civilian is that the citizen makes the safety of the body politic his personal responsibility, protecting it with his life. The civilian does not.
