Triple Range Report-New SR22p-LC9-LCP

Alright! The day finally came. New SR22 1st. range report at my property.
Old business first. The LCP & LC9 were flawless again. 50 rounds of Sellier & Bellot(S&B) 92g FMJ without a problem. The LC9 ate S&B 115g FMJ & something new to me, American Eagle 147g FMJ Flat Point. It was impressive for range ammo. Much tighter groups than the S&B. All feed great in the LC9.
Both these guns have been treated with MilitecI & so far I am impressed with it. Both function very smoothly!

Now to the new kid, the SR22p. All I can say is I was impressed. I cleaned it earlier & it is my FrogLube test gun. The wife & I fired 250 rounds of Federal 36g HP copper-plated value pack. No FTFire/Feeds or Jams or Misfires.
I have never fired a .22 250 rounds without a problem! After a 100 rounds, we were both shooting 1.5 to 2.5 inches low. I adjusted the elevation 1/4 turn & that brought it right in at 25'. I know this is not a target pistol, but it is accurate & a real "fun gun" There was no observed slide damage or loose barrel(checked twice after 1st. & 2nd. 50 rounds)
Got home, cleaned all, the .22 was very dirty, but cleaned easily. I re-applied the SR22's FrogLube. & we are ready to go again. I thoroughly inspected the slide, barrel hold-down screw & the slide release latch & saw no damage.

I had forgotten how much fun killing soup cans could be!

Glad you are enjoying your SR22P. I have two of them and both shoot great.

No Soup for You....

The SR22 is the perfect plinker. I found a Laserlyte V2 picatinny rail laser in my extra parts box. It fits very well on the SR22 and would be great fun on cans on an overcast day.

Which grip sleeve did you use?

I went with the bigger one. I do not have big hands, but it just fit like a glove.

As I recall, you have an LC9. My SR22 is sized right between my LCP and the SR9c (which is where the LC9 fits).

Is the LC9 bigger or smaller than the SR22?

I'm guessing the hand grip is slightly longer cuz I can get three fingers on it. I used the bigger one, too.

SR22p a little bigger. I think the .22 barrel is around 3.5" Vs. 3.1" for LC9.
That's off the top of my head, so don't quote me.

I don't think the big SR22 grip is longer at all, the back part in your palm is bigger. The bigger one fills the area between my thumb & 1st finger better & my wife felt the same. I feel the smaller one is for maybe a 10-12 year old youth.
