A few years ago I bought a used SR22 pistol. It worked flawlessly and became a favorite of my wife and daughter so much so that my daughter claimed it when she moved out. That got me looking for another one. I found a used private sale one, (made in 2013, first year of production) with 5 mags and an extra threaded barrel for sale last winter and picked it up for well under $300. Upon firing it I soon learned why he got rid of it. It would misfire and often took multiple double action trigger pulls (re-strikes) to fire. Wouldn't fire at all on single action. If it did fire it would often fail to extract (FTE). I noticed that the shell cases were split as well. That indicates the shells weren't seating in the chamber. Well, dang it! Buyer beware. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Didn't have time to deal with it so it went into the "fix-it" drawer. Fast forward to last week. My daughter called to visit so I asked her to bring her SR22 home. I swapped the barrel from her SR22 with mine just to see if it would work. It worked better but continued to malfunction. Her barrel also malfunctioned in my gun. So for the first time owning Ruger guns for over 40 years, I called Ruger customer service. They sent me a shipping label and had me return the pistol even though it was an old gun bought used. Just got the pistol back today, just over a week turn around. The note with the gun stated that they replaced the barrel, slide assembly, trigger bar, trigger spring, ejector, takedown lever, right safety and insert screws. Yeah, basically they rebuilt the whole thing. The note also noted that they fired 30 rounds without a malfunction. I took the gun upon receipt and fired 50 rounds into my bullet trap in the basement (5 mags using 4 different makes of ammo including some old hollow points) I had zero malfunctions! The SR22 is a fun little gun to play with, even better when it actually works. Kudo's to Ruger customer service for fixing it without cost.
