    Firing pin blocker

    Want to know on my Ruger SR22 can the gun be used without the fireing pin blocker installed ? And if so what difference is it going to make.

    I would suggest looking at the schematics of the SR22 to see if removing the firing pin blocker would have any mechanical effect on it's operation.
    Looking at it, IMO the firing pin blocker is intended to help prevent AD/ND if the weapon is dropped and the firing pin 'released' or struck by the hammer.
    If you don't have the owner's manual that has the schematic in it, here's a link to where you can download a pdf copy:
    Ruger SR22® Serial Number History (click on the "Instruction Manual" link to download)
    Hope this helps.

    Here's a link to Glock page that shows how firing pin blocker and other internal safety features work when you pull the trigger. I believe the Ruger's system is similar. If you move your cursor over the upper large picture, the smaller focused pictures will change to the difference of when the safety system is engaged and what happens when the trigger is pulled and the internal safetys are disengaged, allowing the weapon to fire.

    May I ask why you're asking?

    I disassembled the gun to clean and lost the little spring on the blocker so waiting on a new one from Ruger and was wondering how nessisary this part was,with all the safety things they put on everything hard to tell what is just over kill or a real safety part.I assume this is a newer part added to pistols in recent years.
