Did this video help you?

David G: I can barely hear it also, at 100% volume.

Pheasant815: I need to get some, but I did not see it at my usual places. I think I have a Cabela's run coming up . . . .maybe they will have some. I know @Hickok45 swears by it.

Pheasant815: Sorry you could not hear it. I am not sure why. If both your computer master volume and the YT volume are both up. I can hear it when I play it. I'll try and shoot another breakdown - clean - assemble video.

Pheasant815: Of all the pistols I have cleaned the SR22 is one of the most simple. Take your time on it, and you will be less likely to get into trouble. The first time I broke my 1911 down I had to stop and triple check what I was doing a number of time. :) Enjoy the pistol, and thanks for watching!

Pheasant815: That sounds like a good routine that should serve you well.

alex: are you sure you should be getting all of that oil back in the firing pin area? i am thinking of buying one of these. how has it been working out for you?

Pheasant815: I did not say "I can hear it when I blast the volume", but I suggested that for you. I did not do this when recording or playing this video. I am sorry this video is giving you trouble. Debbie, you could make your first video showing how to do this correctly. I thank you for taking the time to write out how to do it. My hundred plus other videos are doing fine, and this 11+ month old issue is no longer really a concern of mine. Thanks for your help.

Pheasant815: I have never though of using turpentine. I like to stick with gun care supplies. Some use WD40 and other chemicals, but it just seems odd to not use chemicals specifically made for a job. IMO

StarDust024: hey thanks for your time sir happy and safe shooting to you sir!

Pheasant815: I have not had this problem, and I have used numerous types of ammo. I am not a professional gunsmith; however, polishing the ramp may help. What ammo are you using?

Ivan Alexander: Why is it not good to leave little pieces of cotton in the gun? Can that be harmful to the gun? Will that make it explode?

dibiasi777: Great video. I just got this gun. This will help!

Pheasant815: That is odd! The slide is softer metal (aluminium) and really does not have rough contact. Does it make any odd sounds when racking the slide?

Wabbit1961: I clean my mags every time I use the gun also. Lots of residue on the upper feed ramp. I remove the floor plates and clean the springs and replace them. Once you remove the floor plate you can get a brush or nylon barrel cleaner or mop inside the mags. I use Q-Tips to lightly oil the inside of the mags also. Bore snakes are ok but I prefer patches. I use a .17 caliber brass bore brush and put a patch on the top and push it through with solvent, then with oil. Spray bore foam is also very good.

Pheasant815: I tried the Springfield Armory XD(s) at my range's open house and loved it. Might be a good CCW option. It currently only comes it the .45 acp caliber, but in the months ahead you may see smaller calibers (if you'd rather a bit less recoil).

Debbie Wilson: I think that's the problem. Before you upload, do *NOT* blast your speaker audio and say "gee, I can hear it just fine." Instead, (if available) set your audio correctly when taping... and set your computer volume correctly when playing it back. After uploading (after it's too late) you can still try to play the audio from YouTube. But again, NOT with your speaker volume set to 100%-200%. Try it at 50% and it should be at a normal hearing level. (This video definitely isn't.)

g234z: i agree with Debbie i have my volume all the way up and still cant hear

Pheasant815: It can "gum it up". Especially in the slide grooves or in the trigger assembly it can problematic. I don't know about "explode", but it is counterproductive to the whole cleaning process removing foreign matter and carbon.

cormitch: I've fired about 1200 rounds through mine without a deep cleaning. Only problems I've had are with some FTFs from the magazine. Not sure if it's the ammunition or the magazine or what. Anyways, thanks for the video. I'll be cleaning it this afternoon (first time cleaning my first gun, what a monumental occasion, ha).

Pheasant815: There is a new video of this pistol being fired.

Pheasant815: I really like it. I know a few others who have had problems, but mine runs very well. I do clean my handguns more often and more thoroughly than typical - that may help. It is a stress relief, so I'll clean them when I get home and before I go out.

erxmsm: Nice job. Gotta get me a bore snake now.

StarDust024: thanks for the reply........it only happens when i do a slow assisted release of the slide..if i do a quick release...its fine...it almost seems like its really dirty not mechanical..im guessing it might be from the solvent from the factory.....again it has only been "Factory" tested ie 1 shot.....i guess i should do a light cleaning and oil it and go from there..? thanks for your time...

Pheasant815: Cleaning your magazines should help. If you use the rounds that have a "waxy" coating it will really help.

dibiasi777: Mine has taken a turn. Now since I joined a range I am shooting it all the time. MANY failure to feeds. I have 3 clips. At least one failure per clip. I plan on sending it back to Ruger for repair. 3 different types of ammo.

Pheasant815: To borrow a line from another fellow, "Your mileage may vary". I am curious on what the round count has to do with the breakdown lever. I do realize the part does not have infinite use; however, number of rounds is not a good meter for the part. If a reviewer had said rather after breaking it down to clean after 50 outings then I would follow that, because the opening and closing it would wear on it. I would consider the source AND logic of what you have read/watched.

Twisted86: Yeah SR22 just died for me, what killed the deal is the plastic breakdown lever breaking within 5000 rounds. Great little gun but till they replace that take down with a steel version its just not trusting. Some reviews it breaks within 50 rounds...another its 2000, the best was 5000 rounds but it still breaks. Appreciate your reply btw :)

Debbie Wilson: I doubt you will ever find a steel version of the takedown level. It's MEANT to be plastic/rubber to absorb some of the slide blowback force. If you want a totally unbreakable one, you won't get it from Ruger, unfortunately. But TwinTech has them for $20 at twinTechTactical (dot) com/Takedown-Lever.html

Will Stephens: good vid man, I have developed small scratches on the top of the exposed area on the barrel when the slide it closed. I have made sure everything is clean and no debris could cause the scratching on the stainless finish. Any ideas?

jcejac: Pretty sweet vid. Thnx for posting... I can clean mine with confidence now...

Pheasant815: I have an Otis kit. It works well. I like pulling hard crud out with it. That said . . . if there is harder material (harder than the barrel's steel) on the bore snake than when resistance occurs by pulling it through would it not go into the snake (soft materiel) over the hard steel of the barrel? I would agree with hard shavings getting stuck on a guide rod and pushing into the barrel. I always wipe my rods clean to prevent this issue.

Pheasant815: I buy mostly the bulk federal ammo from Cabela's when it goes on sale. I have not have a problem with it. I stay away from the cheap Remington .22 ammo with any .22, and thus have not tried it with the SR22.

Pheasant815: No problem. I have found YT videos of people disassembling and cleaning their pistols so helpful to me when I am considering a purchase. If a pistol is a chore to work with it better have a huge payout somewhere else. The SR22 is a breeze to breakdown and clean, AND a ton of fun to shoot. Thanks again @jcejac !

oskinoify: I just purchased a sr22 today and I am noticing that when I load one in the chamber, the barrel is shaving the bullet where its hits the entry point of the barrel. Has your SR22 ever done this? I tempted to polish the feed ramp to help with this problem.

Pheasant815: OH! Yes clean it. I would urge you to always clean any pistol or rifle prior to firing! All the factory and transit garbage that gets in a gun is awful. I would give it a good cleaning and that might well "solvent" the problem. :) Wow that was a bad joke - I better go to bed now. I hope after a cleaning and lube it is set to sail for you sir!

Pheasant815: This video has been watched 11,958 times, and you are the first to note no audio. I just watched it and it does have audio with it. It is a bit lower than my other videos, but there. Maybe try again being sure to turn up the volume a bit. It could be that there was just a glitch during the time you played it. Thanks for trying to watch it!

StarDust024: quick question for u Pheasant815 or anyone else...I got my sr22 last week new.....took it apart..which i have seen a few videos on ppl doing it....when i put it back together it seems to stick a bit when i release (the slide) it from a locked postion... again brand new..does it need just a bit of oil before i goto the range....? thanks for your time....

Twisted86: How does it handle cheap ammo, any jam issues? If you had a option between a Ruger Mark 2/3 or SR22 what would be your choice? I like the Mark series as its proven reliable BUT I like the look of the SR22 as I MIGHT get my CCW once I feel confident in my ability.

Pheasant815: This pistol is great for new shooter and for people who like to shoot inexpensive .22 rounds.

Pheasant815: As for the CCW plans . . . I just saw a holster for the SR22 on page 36 of September 2012 issue of Guns Magazine. It is made by Zack Davis and looks like it has a nice high back to keep it off your skin. The weight of this pistol would be a breeze to carry, and ANY pistol carried is better than none (what we get to carry in Illinois).

DON C.: Good cleaning video.I got 5000 RNDS on mine i think it's shooting better as time goes.Have a safe-weekend.

Clayton Barrett: I had the same thing happen on my SR22, I just got a piece of 800 grit automotive sandpaper , made a flat block out of it, put a dab of Hoppes 9 on the paper and rubbed on the flat 3 sided area at back of barrel to get rough scratches out. Eventually it smooth down into a better tolerance and doesn't scratch anymore.

Pheasant815: They are the best for .22s and shotguns, especially.

Pheasant815: I have a shorter version of the breakdown of this pistol. You might have better luck with it. Thanks for watching.

Pheasant815: This little pistol is still shooting great and running smooth. I do clean it after each outing and I believe that to be vital for good care.

monsterchow: Finally found a cleaning video!!! Thank you sir; you have confirmed that a bore snake is the way to go on this cleaning job. I've blasted at least 2k of various bulk ammo down range and still rock n and a rolling. Thanks for your time on this cleaning video. Another perspective is always nice!

Pheasant815: Thanks brother!

Pheasant815: I am not 100% sure what is happening. It COULD be it is over oiled, under oiled, not pieced together quite right, or a myriad of things. I would consult the manual. That being said, my SR22 (like all others) has a point in its forward movement of the slide where (if your holding the slide) you "feel it catch" a bit, and that is normal. Remember to let the slide "sling shot" forward. IF it "stick" when you just let it go then you may have a issue. Do you have a video of this "sticking"?

Pheasant815: It has been working great. I have had not problems at all with the firearm, and this is likely due to doing "field strip" cleanings like this even between back-to-back range days along with deep cleaning. This is my only firearm I do not break it all the way down into just internal parts, but that would void the warranty and looks overly complex to do. Thanks for watching! I think you'll like the pistol.

Pheasant815: This is one fun little pistol.
