Fix coming

I have been contracted to attempt to develop a trigger kit. So far there are minimal improvements but we've only begun the journey on this gun. I'll post more if / when we get something useful.

I must not be very good as measuring trigger pull by feel and don't have a gauge to check but my SR22 is probably second only to the SR1911 in the weight of the trigger pull in SA mode and have had several cases where I fired before I intended to while zeroing in on the target because the pull is so light.

Not sure how/why this thread got resurrected from 2012 but I have to wonder if there's a difference with new production guns that has been resolved by Ruger.

My new SR22 has a double-action pull as light or lighter than any double-action revolver I own, including a S&W Pro Series. (Maybe not a smooth, but certainly as light, and I expect it to smooth out over time since it's only a couple months old.) Single action, my experience is like that of mcwsky09 -- I have to be careful not to fire it inadvertently before back fully on target. It's a true, light, crisp "surprise break" in SA fire.

If I got a new specimen in 2014 that didn't behave that way, I'd take advantage of the fact that Ruger has the best customer service attitude in the business and ask them to take a look at it. I'd bet they would pay shipping back and check it out. I'd certainly try going down that path before paying a smithy or purchasing a third party trigger, becuase this is not an insurmountable design failure; there are people out there like me who got lucky and came home with excellent triggers out of the box, so logically it follows that it's possible for the factory to get them that way, as designed.

My SR22 had a high trigger pull when it was new but the more I shot it the better it has become. Still nothing to brag about but I think it will continue to improve.

Larry, match or target grade 22's, SW 41's, Walther GPS, Beretta M 89, Ruger Match and target level guns , High Standard Citations, etc., have more precise trigger mechanisms, milled from steel and with finer strings and they easily shoot at 2 or 2 1/4 pounds with crisp let offs. A good smith can reduce that to ounces at the risk of being too light for some. The SR 22, a very very nice plinker may not have steel components or the highest grade springs. Getting one down to 3 pounds or so may be problematic. I would normally suggest a trigger shoe but the SR 22 has a wonderful wide smooth trigger as it stands.

Search out a truly good smith, from discussions online and ask their advice. They are expensive and have waiting list but are really capable.

Good luck, roland

PS, your daughter is quite the shooter. Most of the target grade and better 22's weight around 40 ounces, why I sold my M 89. If I wanted to shoot better with my arthritic hands I would explore a 22/45 Lite with a trigger job.

But the SR 22 is a delight to shoot but maybe not the best platform to modify.

I'm glad this one got re-visited. The
DA trigger is a little hard on my arthritic
hands. It loads up quite a bit before firing.
In SA the trigger has 10mm of travel before firing.
This is my first DA/SA pistol so I don't have anything to
compare it to.

I noticed there are a number of people interested in the SR22's trigger pull here. For those who are interested, I've recently did a trigger job on my pistol:

Hope some will find it useful

Really good info. I appreciate it.

I decided to send my SR-22 back to Ruger. They will receive it on 5/28/2014.
They were very efficient and polite on the phone. I'll post a report after
it comes back.

I absolutely have fallen in love with this gun, before I owned a SR9c, I loved that gun n thought the only thing that could replace it would be an FN if I could ever afford one, that was before someone let me shoot their SR22. It's even become my carry, and in recent tough times I was forced to sell one, now I need to buy another SR9c or an American lol.

That being said, after thousands of rounds through my SR22, and tons of time doing little upgrades, there's a few things you can do to make this baby shine a little more and prevent some trouble down the line.

1. TK captured guide rod - while the guide rod aruably does very little, the captured version makes field stripping pretty easy, also has a stronger spring then stock, I switch between the 2 springs, and have changed out the brass washer to steel, as it will never fail now.

2. Threaded Barrel and compensator. The Ruger kit works just fine, I use a short Twin Tactical threaded barrel, but if your planning on heavy shooting, throw on the compensator, I plink like mad and it's why this is my favorite handgun, I've never been quite this comfortable with any other gun I've owned, and the confidence shows on my targets.

3. Twin Tacticals machined takedown lever, the stock ones are a little under par, I love Ruger, but pride myself on honesty.

4. Custom dremel work. Lots of parts can be replaced or upgraded, when I did so I made a few adjustments on the older ones to help a few things out, my current and final setup sports a little grinding on the hammer and the feed, as well as custom magazine followers and some weight taken off the stock trigger. Other then following some videos and doing it yourself I don't know how to accomplish these. My trigger is much more enjoyable, and in the past few months I could count all my misfires on my hands, every single one has been a round that had defective primer.

I shoot this with nothing on the barrel, rugers compensator, and am waiting like everyone else for paperwork to pass for a silencer.

Imho CCI makes my favorite rounds, with the exception being Remington subsonics. Otherwise minimags, stingers, velocitors, and silencers are the way to go. Every month I pick a new bullet to go through a box of, and while I'm one of the biased brand types, the remmingtons have been the only standouts so far.
