Met a guy at the range today and after he saw my SR22 he asked if I had any problems with it. I told him about my problem with it not loading a new round and that I had put the problem here on the forum and got a response that fixed my issue. The recoil spring was not "captive" on the rod and once I got it secured I have not had a problem since. He told me he knew that his spring wasn't "captive" and would give it a try. He was really unhappy with his SR22, as was I, but now I really like it. Just a fix that maybe everybody knows but he said he had never heard it. Really like my SR22 and SR9.
