Neither. Sw mp 22 compact.
This is for only those who own/have owned BOTH the Ruger SR22 and the Walther P22 -
Which do/did you like better, and why? Pros and cons of each would be very helpful. Thank you.
On this forum, replies are pro Walther over the Ruger. It would appear that $$ is going to sway me, with which I'm not necessarily comfortable. Each seems to have a con that counters the other. Flip a coin?
If you decide on the Ruger, actually check around for both. I found that the Ruger SR22 sold locally between $419 and $475, for the same model.
I've heard much good about the SW too.
I prefer Beretta, and definitely DO NOT get a Sig Mosquito.
Yes I own(ed) both pistols.
I bought both of them new.
The Walther was a Jam-O-Matic,,,
No matter what ammo I fed it.
I can't remember the last time the Ruger jammed,,,
It has fed and fired everything that I feed it.
I peddled the Walther,,,
I will keep the Ruger.
I own a Ruger SR22 many say its a copy of the Walther P22 I wont argue the fact it sure looks like it is, at first glance. The big difference the Ruger doesn't jam! I wanted a 22 pistol that was fairly compact easy to clean (If any of you have owned a Mark III you know what a PIA they are to clean!) but above all reliable, the Ruger cost about 75.00 less then the Walther when I bought it 3yrs ago. But for me what really separates it from the Walther is the fact that no matter what ammo I feed it, bulk or the premium 22 ammo it just doesn't jam! Its a accurate fun gun to shoot and its a nice way to introduce first time shooters to the sport.
I own the Walther P-22, and it does require high velocity ammo to be consistent. It is a fun little pistol, and I like it, but in my opinion it is over-priced. If the Ruger cycles bulk-pack ammo, that would be the clincher for me.
Question answered. I bought a Bersa Thunder 22, ending my decision-making process.

Good luck with your choice, I also own a Bersa and its been a solid 9mm pistol.
SR22, its a good gun, now have a MP 22 compact, its a better gun...
Both are reliable, hated the sr22 backwards safety and the DA first shot was very diificult, and I love DA/SA triggers
Have had 1 FTF in 750 rounds of CCI Mini/mag and golden bullet....only 2 ive put through gun
