As you know, Ruger's SR-556 has been very well received in the marketplace. Well, the company's new SR-22 is poised to do the same and take the market by storm! At first glance, you can see the rifle's potential. It has an AR15 look to it and accepts any aftermarket stock and grip you can think of-- and comes from the factory equipped with the same Hogue rubber grip and six position collapsible stock as the SR-556. Magazine reliability seems to be an issue with most of the new .22lr conversion kits and stand alone rifles, but not with the SR-22. Ruger wisely chose to rely on the old faithful rotary magazine from its legendary 10-22 series rifles. But that's not it, folks. The best is yet to come with this little rifle! I'm talking about the cold hammer forged 1:16 twist barrel that has a real removable flash hider-- the same as the SR-556. That makes adding special muzzle devices, such as a sound suppressor (silencer), a piece of cake! And you know how we like our special muzzle devices, right!? :) Now, that's something the other guys on the market cannot claim at this time-- and for under $450, the Ruger SR-22 is a winner in my book.

I'd also like to thank all the good folks that showed up at the Saiga Forum shoot at Myakka, even though I couldn't make it. My good buddy Wayne raffled of a few of his new display cases, which On Point Firearms is the exclusive distributor of. If you haven't checked them out yet, please do. They're hand crafted by Wayne and "wood" make a great gift for Christmas:
