Ruger SR22’s are fantastic in my opinion. I’ve had two different generations and both have handled everything I’ve thrown at them. I have never shot a Ruger target style pistol, but have shot the S&W Victory with the carbon fiber barrel(performance center version possibly??), and have wanted one ever since. That victory will be my next 22 purchase.
You can get a performance center Victory with a carbon fiber barrel, or you can buy a standard Victory and add a Volquartsen carbon fiber barrel. The nice thing is that the performance center version also has the nice TK victory trigger in it and the oversized mag release, but it's also a bit spendier. I have both and actually prefer the Volquartsen barrel.
