Question SR22 Pistol Mags

Hello,
I just bought my first Ruger. The new SR22 pistol. I can't wait to try it out, it looks like it should be a riot.
The first thing I thought when I looked at it was "I have to get extra mags for this so I can be fully loaded when I get to the range and not have to reload when I am done.
Problem is that I have tried searching a few different times and can't find anything anywhere.
Any ideas?
The last new gun I bought was an SI 1911 which came with an order sheet to get low price mags from them. I kind of hoped I would get the same with Ruger.
Any help would be appreciated.

gesh! the gun just came out! give the after market some time! if the gun's success then they'll jump in once they know there's a market.

plus 1911s have been around 100 years and are more popular than ever so of course their mags are all over the place.

i have a BLR. They've been out for decades but the only mags you buy are Browning's. very few guns have after-market mags available,ever.

My theory is that Ruger was waiting to see how well the gun sold before mass producing magazines for it. Now that it is a success (IMO), I think they'll step up production. Even if you order extra mags now, they are backordered until 1/31/12.

Thumbs down Foot plate issue

I bought my SR-22 yesterday and encountered an annoying issue when I tried to change out the foot plates. I had to use a 1.2 mm precision screwdriver to pop the button on the bottom of the mag back into place once I had changed out the plates. It was a total pain in the ass and I scratched the hell out of the button. I do not see myself changing the foot plates on these mags EVER AGAIN!! What should have taken seconds turned into a 30 minute ordeal. The first one only took about 6 minutes to get the button back into place, but the second one took over 25 minutes. This is not acceptable to me. I hope Ruger has a fix for this in the future.

The size of the mag has nothing to do with the cost. My 30-round P-Mags for my AR are $18.99, while the 7-round mags for the Walther PPS I used to have were like $65.00! Glock mags are around $30 each regardless of the capacity and caliber, 10 rounds to 33... So $35 is a lot of money for a mag sure, but overall it doesn't seem that unreasonable to me.

After finding my P-Mags for $18.99 at a store about 45min away, I make it a point to buy atleast 1 everytime I'm there. I currently have 6 but want to get up to at least a dozen. Hell I'll happily load 10x .22's at the range, 30 rounds of 5.56 on the other hand, is not fun!

crracer 712 is an unknown quantity at this point
Give it time for supplies to get out. Midwayusa routinely has Ruger magazine sales.

I had the issue of no mags available when I first bought my LC9, paid the price at shopruger.com, like a dummy.

Saved over 14 bucks a mag when I picked up extra mags for my LCP at midwayusa, also bought the BX25 mags for 16.99 on sale at midway awhile back.

I thought I would need extra mags for my week old SR22 but have since changed my mind.

I just came from the range where I fired it for the first time., I ran 300 rounds of Federal bulk rounds thru it in just under 40 minutes. I did that while loading the mags by myself, switching targets, adjusting sights, talking with the people next to me, etc.

During the last 20 rounds, I started having dirt related issues. The empty cases weren't being extracted anymore cuz there was so much dirt in the chamber. Did a quick cleaning with a dry q-tip and finished with no further problems.

Point is that it is very easy to load the mags and I spent way less time doing that than I thought would be the case. I know I can't load my centerfire pistols mags anywhere near as fast.

(I do have 8 25 rnd mags for my S&W M&P 15-22, they are harder to load quickly)

I won't be getting any additional mags soon.

The little seven round mags for Beretta Bobcat .22s list for $31. Usually they're $26 on a Midway sale.

True, Ruger Mark III mags are $26 at Shop Ruger, less elsewhere.

You want a high price mag, try buying one for a discontinued gun. Always like $75 and UP, for a used one, even,

Weird I changed out the footplates in under a minute. All I used was a pen to depress the little pin then the spring shot out half way across the house. I gathered the pieces, reassembled the mag and inserted pinky extender. Good to go.

I think most mags are way overpriced. I just purchased 2 mags for my SR9c at 34.99 each plus 6.99 each for the magazine Adapters. I could have ordered the magazine Adapters from Ruger for $5.00 each but when you add in the extra shipping I wouldn't have saved anything. There has to be alot of profit in magazine sales. Just because most places charge a high price for mags doesn't make it right. But I don't know who to blame for this, the manufactures or the dealers.

That's strange, it took me literally, I don't know, 10-15 seconds. I happened to have a punch set on my desk, but a precision screwdriver would have worked just as well. You just need to depress the button, use one thumb to slide the baseplate off while using tue other thumb to hold the spring/follower from popping out of the mag, and slide the new plate on. I'm telling you 15 seconds if that.

Out of all my guns it was the easiest to do. Try swapping Glock floorplates. You need pliers and have to crush the crap outta the mag. Mashed up fingers to follow...

Mags just don't look expensive, but there's a lot to one. Metal ones, at least. They are heat treated, or that sheet metal wouldn't last long. Every edge is smoothed. There is a welded seam somewhere, that has to be smooth. Most have a very specific alloy in the springs. I can understand the costs involved.

What irks is when you see two very similar mags in size and construction, but one is double the price of the other, and it's the one you need.....

Try finding a one for a SR40, 43.99 @ ruger.com + shipping .. and everyone else is out of stock. Not a very new gun, but mag's are still very hard to find. Sounds like the SR22 is a great li shooter out of the box. Great, going to make them even harder to find. ~lol~
