Both pistols have 6 5/8 inch barrels, one with a blued barrel and frame and the other case colored engraved. The MSRP for the pistols starts at $999. Standard Manufacturing describe the SG22 as a limited production model.
Here’s what Standard Manufacturing have to say about the new SG22:
Standard Manufacturing is proud to announce the new SG22 semi automatic pistol. The SG22 is chambered in .22LR and possesses the classic styling and design elements of the quintessential guns of yesteryear. This John Browning design features a 1911 style magazine release, comfortable wood target grips, smooth action, and adjustable sights, making the SG22 ideal for target shooting.
The Master Gunsmiths at Standard Manufacturing hand make each SG22 individually machined from solid blocks of steel to the highest precision tolerances, not modern manufacturing techniques. Each gun requires many labor-intensive hours of polishing, stoning, and fitting. Only the most experienced gunsmiths can accomplish this; as such, very few gunmakers in the world have the capability or craftsmen to make a gun of this level. We anticipate a great deal of demand for this limited production model, at the time of this printing, the retail price of the Standard Manufacturing SG22 starts at $999 and can be purchased through your local gun shop, through all major distributors, and directly from us.
