1st Time to the Range for my SR22s

Today, I finally was able to visit the range to test my two SR22s, one a Model 3606 the long barrel; and the other a Model 3600 the standard barrel.
Both performed flawlessly with both CCI MiniMags and Winchester Standard Velocity.
The CCI brand seemed to be "cleaner" IMO.
No failure to extract, no failure to feed or failure to fire.
That is all.

Glad the range session was trouble-free.

I've been eyeballin' the new Mark IV quite a bit lately. May need to add to the rimfire family.

Good news! I haven't yet been able to get my standard slide SR22 to the range. Well, actually I did take it to the range but left the magazines at home ... The range is persnickety about having magazines in autos as you walk on the range - so I took them out of the soft case at home and left them here...

Good to hear. I've had one for several years and it performs well. There have been several negative posts lately - many of them simply failed to clean them before firing them.

I cleaned them well and lubed them using the old tried and true stuff, Hoppes #9 and RemOil.
One was a little more cruddy than the other, mostly just thick factory lube, a blackened bore, and barrel feed ramp area had some powder fouling that came right off. The other needed hardly any attention, but it got it anyway.

I have a Mark III, had a Mark I many years ago as well. Now I am thinking of trading the III in towards a IV, but I really don't like the heavy barrels on the IV, preferring the taper of old. So just thinking right now.

The SR22 is a blast to shoot. Absolutely love this pistol.

I put my model 3600 through its paces this weekend. About 500 rounds through it: Mini Mags, Golden Bullets, Fed Auto Match, and Armscor CPHP. Only one dud...a Mini Mag. I shot the best groups with the Armscor.

I've had issues with Winchester in the past. Maybe just my batch, but the knurling seemed to be a wider than the case and cause feed problems.

Congratulations on your two SR22s, glad you like them.

I only have one and love it, but keep thinking I need one with the longer barrel.

Glad your SR22s are working for you. I have two of the original model and both of them will shoot any HV ammo without a hiccup. I've shot about everything through these guns.

In fact, all of my Rugers, including all 7 of my Ruger Mark pistols will shoot about any HV ammo.

It may be just me, but the short barrel was more "fun" to shoot, as it seemed more snappy. The long barrel was equally as fun to shoot as well, but I leaned toward toward the short barrel at the end of the session. These guns are pretty cool, easy to assemble after disassembly and cleaning and take little attention.
