Just got mama a Ruger SR22. She is enrolled in a class Feb 25 to obtain her CWP here in Va.
She has small hands and wanted the smaller grip. I googled changing Ruger SR22 grip and got exactly what I needed. The OP was Noah Zark on this forum from 2011.
His original post: Changing Grip Sleeves on Your SR22? Drop the Screwdriver and Pick Up a Hair Dryer
I used a heat gun and it worked just as explained. Once the grip is removed you can see small dimples in the gun and detents inside the grip. Two on each side 1 at top and 1 at bottom.
Simple enough. Thank you, Noah.
