Ruger SR22

I just picked one up and it promises to be a keeper. Shot Blazer,Winchester,Remington,CCI Mini-Mag and sub-sonics with 1 failure to chamber (Blazer) and 1 failure to fire (Sub-sonic) in 230 to 250 rounds. Accuracy was very good, but not like say a MKII, of course. Nice trigger and great sights. Magazines are very easy to load, a big plus. It's easy to dissassemble, but it's got it's differences so I actually read the manual. Hard to believe, huh? The grips are hand filling with a second grip included, and magaziner extensions also. I kinda got beat at $400.00OTD, but these pistols are rare in the whole state. I would highly reccomend this type of pistol (or BERSA .22) as a trainer if you carry a double action self defense pistol. The controls are pretty much the same as is the operation.

Yeah,Garand, I hear you. My G21 IS a better defense pistol than my Colt 1911, and the plastic Ruger .22's are outshining my old MKII, but damn, I like then old ones better.

I heard that, Terry...I carry a Glock23 at work& own a gen2 G17... but when I carry and/ or shoot for fun,9 times out of 10 I reach for one of my 9x18 or 7.62x25 Combloc guns...

I can't get into Com block guns either. I have 1 SKS that only gets shot during World War 2 re-enactor matches. Which means about 7 times in the last 6 years. For me they just can't cut it in the accuracy dept.

My Makarov( Bulgarian Circle 10), P64, M57 snd CZ52 are all shooters- the P64 benefitted from a hammer& recoil spring swap. The Mak- recoil spring(21 lb Wolff's) and the CZ52 got a Harrington Product's Firing Pin kit swap.
I still shoot my SKS' s...oddly enough, the Chicom spiker is my favorite- the 1950 Tula is at the smith for a bit of sear& safety work- after 72 years, something finally went...methinks mist SKS & AK rifles benefit from better sights& triggers( Kivari for the SKS, TWS dogleg mount w/ rear sight on SKs) but I generally find them agreeable to my cave man like nature.

I can't lump all Com-Bloc gun's together, too many models, countries, etc. Some SKS's are hurting for accuracy, most are not. The Yugoslavian M48's, The Czech 24/47, and the Czech CZ82, give nothing away in accuracy of a military firearm. One mint Yugoslavian 59/66 I bought for a ridiculously low price will shoot two inch groups at 100 yards with good ammunition.

I' m with you on the M59/66...one one hand, no chrome bore. This means clean religiously- especially after M67 ball....not just for bore erosion, but the seal on the gas cutoff for the grenade launcher is a thing to take care of....but the rifles themselves are shooters- non chromed bores often do well.And the meaty build translates to rigidity. Also, some believe the flash hider/ grenade launcher can act like an " expansion chamber " for slower powders.
My Tula was / is accurate. But I got lucky with the Chicom SKS' s- reliable, accurate ; and improved by some trigger work....besides, I' m one of those wierdos who actually like the cruciform spike as far as folding bayonets go.
