Do dry fire Ruger double action 22's before you buy one. I have a Single -Six and a old K-22 Masterpiece. Both are nice guns and only the Single-Six would be slightly lighter than the 617. I would look at S&W revolvers in DA verses Ruger, because of the better triggers. I have never owned or fired a J-frame 22.
