SR 22 Question

My wife is new to shooting so I got her an SR22. She likes it but doesn't like the brass flying back. Is there something other than a brass catcher she can use to redirect the brass so it doesn't fly back in her face?

Thanks

Two questions

1: is she keeping her wrist firm and not letting the gun flip up and back when she shoots?
2: have you tried multiple types of ammo?

I have 5,000 plus rounds through mine and had some weird ejects with some soft un coated rounds may have been Ammscor or Aquila. And was at the range with a friend and his son was shouting (novice) and was letting the gun really flip in his had with each shot.

Are you shooting at an indoor range? The brass may be ejecting properly and just bouncing off the lane divider partition. Have you fired it yourself and experienced the same? If it really is simply ejecting the casings back at the shooters face, the tension on the extractor can be tuned a bit. You could try a different weight recoil spring.

Never had that happen. Teach her proper hand control/grip.

I have modified my slide because there is something in the way these things eject where I could see this situation happening. The problem is on a post in the gunsmithing section, "SR22 mods I did in my garage" I believe is the title. Great post.

If you aren't comfortable gunsmithing though, I recommend plinking out a mag urself, if you feel the casing is coming back at you at all, send this gun in to Ruger asap, as what's going to come next leads to a lot scarier situations lol.

Otherwise work on her form, also, "Talon" makes a very sharp looking and cheap grip mod that enhances your grip dramatically and effects recoil because of it, I believe you can pick one up on eBay for around $13 with free SH
