Better or Best semi-auto 22 WMR?



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm looking for a 'good' 22 WSM auto-loader and have been considering the Magnum Research variants. Are they pretty accurate and reliable or, do I need to up the budget considerably?

TIA,
Sid

What about the Kel-Tec PMR 30?

Needs to be a rifle. I've looked at the Kel-Tec pistol but, quality seems a bit low overall. Plus, in a handgun, I'd have a 9mm on me generally with a 45ACP some too.

You can get the straight stocked MR graphite for <$600. The CZ 512 looks like it might a nice option though. THANKS!

Zastava M22 is a good .22wmr. I can get 3-4 shot clovers at 50 yd.s. Mine seems to shoot the 40 gr. best, but I need to get some 30 gr. and try out. Aguila 40 gr. Cu-plated at 1865 fps [irrc] is my favorite brand.

This is my set up.

The CCI 30 gr. did do a very nice group. 58 yd.s +/-.

Vintage Marlin?

It's not MR, and suppose I'm not addressing your question (forgive me... my wife does) - 922M may be worth a few minutes research if you're not shopping new. Nice ones are out there, likely in a not-unreasonable price range.

I have 2 CZ 512 carbines in .22WMR. Both function flawlessly, and are plenty accurate for my needs (plinking and pest control). I'm not a paper puncher, so I can't speak on group size at 8 million yards, but at 100 or less, I rarely miss what I'm aiming at...

I have the Magnum Research MLR-22WMBW - Black Walnut stock with a carbon fiber barrel. Only negative was the standard Ruger trigger, however a Brimstone Tier II upgrade (2.2 lbs) really makes this a fun off-hand shooting 22 WMR. It's very light and shoulders like it was custom fit for me. Their manual states they will only warrant the use of 40 grain ammo, however I have shot 30 & 35 grain ammo with no problems what-so-ever.

I also have a CZ 512 American which I also like but it does have a heavier, crisp breaking trigger; but once one gets familiar with it is also very accurate and shoots all 22 WMR ammo I have tried.

I would be hard pressed to pick one over the other as I like both for different reasons.

The Magnum Research MLR-22WMBW is what I am drawn too except for the price. Over $1K with tax is a bit much for this 'plinker'.

When you say you like both for different reasons, can you explain a bit? What are the pro's and con's or pluses and minuses for you with these two rifles?

I have always fancied these MR rifles, and the price is not as obnoxious as some of the others.

Volquartsen is the best choice.. magnum research has warning on the top of them not to use anything under 40 grain loads imo eliminating some of the best rounds
