+1 for the Mark IV. I've had mine for almost three years and love it! Yes, easy to clean too. I upgraded the grips to Hogue grips and make it feel so much better. I added HiViz fiber optic sight too. I could upgrade the trigger, but I'm not going to bother. There were a few jams within the first 500 rounds, but now I'm probably at 3k-4k rounds and barely have jams.
The only complaint if it counts is that new shooters will say it's too heavy and get fatigued after a while. The weight makes it easier to shoot though. I'd also recommend the SR22 or G44 if you're not sold on the Mark IV.View attachment 377360
22lr and alot of guns will do better with better ammo.I like my SR22 but....Mine is fussy about the ammo that it wants. Higher grade 22 makes it happy and I end up keeping the lower grade 22 for my Henry rifle.
Or go really old school with an S&W 617. Ten shots of pure enjoyment. If you have a S&W 686 it is almost an exact duplicate:

Without looking at the cylinder flutes, guess which one is the 617 and which is the 686. It’s perfect for cheap practice in place of the 686.
Another vote for the Taurus! Everyone that I've let shoot mine has been blown away. "this feels great in my hands!" "Holy crap the trigger is amazing!" "You only paid $350 for this!?"Taurus just the tx22 to anutha level

As if It was in doubt.
Thats pretty amazing I had 15k rounds of everything through mine before I sold it
Yeah thats odd... I've had 2 of them a long slide and a regular one and both ate everything.I guess maybe it needs to go back to Ruger maybe? The only thing I can say for certain is that I can put almost anything in the Henry and it will shoot it, but the ruger is fussy. If it isn't the higher end .22 ammo it will jam consistently.

They're are pretty well known for being super reliable I'd send it back
Surf around this Web Shrine (that's the 22/45 page, but there are more),+1 for the Ruger Mark series. I also have a Mark iii, but found its not as much of a PITA as some say to assemble \ disassemble for cleaning. Watch some YouTube videos and pay careful attention to the order of operations and orientation. No harder than a 1911.
I disavow all inertia-based strip/reassembly instructions.I have some Ruger MK-IIIs, because I like them and that's what was available when I was buying my first guns. I figured out how to take them apart and put them back together, & once I knew the method (hold the gun upside down and hop up and down on one leg while jiggling the magazine thing that goes up), it was not that big of a deal.
I think what happens is the directions tell you to hold it in your left hand, you righties just cant comprehend, i kid.Surf around this Web Shrine (that's the 22/45 page, but there are more),
and you will be the guru on top of the mountain.
People will cross oceans to ask you how they can reassemble their pistols.

Understand how the tidbits work together, and you can use
a long thin object like a trade show gimme screwdriver
and a bright light to move the hammer or dangly-thing
over to where it belongs, to then proceed to the next step of reassembly.
Where does this Zen-like "understanding" come from?
Teh Web Shrine!
The cheap shell probably had a shitting rim combined with a jot so good extractor.What I get with cheap ammo is that the spent shell doesn't eject. So when I go to the range I bring along a .22 cleaning rod and I have to use it to push the stuck shell out. They always come out pretty easily I've never had one get stuck in the barrel. If I use more expensive ammo then it works flawlessly every time. So I have been fixing the problem by using the more expensive ammo with the SR22 and keep the bulk purchased cheaper stuff for the Henry which to me would probably still work if it were loaded with chewing gum lol.
Not really, the wax serves a purpose. If you want to see excessive wax or oil hunt down some old Junoir ammo out of Russian from the 80s stuff came dripping off.......Blazer .22 ammo is “waxy” and gave a ton away a couple years ago
Another issue with .22 guns I bet.
