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.

The owners manual clearly explains how the spring is to be attached to the rod.

I like my SR22. It is picky re: ammo though. Any of the really cheap 22lr ammo just doesn't work reliably. CCI minimag round nose solid point performs flawlessly. Almost 2,000 rounds thru it to date.

I think the major complaint among owners was that the gun was being shipped with the spring not captive as it should have been. A lot of owners just assumed if Ruger sent it that way, that was the way it was supposed to be.

Yes, the manual spelled it out. I know I shot a few mags before I realized it was not right.

Took gun down to clean before first use. I went to the manual to figure out how to take spring/rod apart to clean and lube. :) Didn't this problem existed until I read these threads. It wasn't my intent to be sarcastic or condescending.
