Small gun, but still feels solid.
Mine arrived with the larger grip installed, and it fits my hand pretty well. Also had the extensions installed on the two mags as well, which I also like. Simple to strip - I oiled the gun lightly prior to firing, and everything seems to work well. Ran a couple of mags of Geco semi-auto subsonics through it, and it ate them just fine. You really don't have to slap the mag in, just an extra push will do it.
Sights are nice, pretty well dialed in, and it holds decent groups. Manually cocking the first round helps - all the rest will feel the same. If not, the first pull will seem excessively hard.
Might be because I'm used to .22 rifles, but this thing is LOUD! That might actually be an advantage, given a surprise visit situation where you want to scare an invader.
I bought this to use as a CCW, because I didn't want anything too heavy, and I wouldn't be compensating for recoil too much. Will fit well in a Wally-world/Crosman holster ( SAH02 ) for 8 bucks. If you can sew on a button, it should be easy to customize that holster for whatever your carry needs are (straps and buckles to be found an aisle or two over).
For those with large hands, this might no be the gun for you - it IS small, nearly sub-compact, but it would be a good choice for instructing young-uns in the handling of handguns..
Ruger has never disappointed me - the SR22 seems to be a winner! (I am not affiliated with Ruger or Bud's in any way - just my $.02 worth)
