The two SEMI-AUTO designs that jump to my mind are the Brno 611 and HK 300 rifles. Both are discontinued and bring a hefty price when found. For me, the Brnos are the prettiest.





Just my opinion - good luck on search.

I recently acquired a new .22WMR CZ 512. It's reliable and accurate if I do my part.

I'll give a suggestion of the H&R 700 and HK 300 of which I have both and operate flawlessly.

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

Magnum Research

I have a MR with the .22 WMR graphite barrel in a Boyds Blaster stock that groups so much better than the couple of Marlin 922M rifles that I have owned. The Marlins seemed to change group location when changing from 50 yds. to 100 yds. I questioned the scope on one, both?
I was very happy when I compared the MR with the last 922M at the range so I sold the 922m. However after shooting the MR (at most) 100 rounds, I had a round blow back and destroy a magazine. It was the last round in the mag so just need a new mag right. Checked the chamber, and spent case with nothing to note. I have cleaned and fired since and everything seems fine but I have a tendency to check to insure the bolt is closed.

Yikes!

That's terrible! Sounds like firing out of battery which is a great concern.

Another vote for the CZ512. With a good trigger job it can be quite accurate.

Nice guns. I dont own one, but; if I ever accidentally stumble across either of these locally I would have to think long and hard about clearing out a spot. With the internt, a person that had-to-have a semi 22mag, I like these two. The new CZ has a plastic receiver. Hefty price is relative, here I plead ignorance, but; I would pay 2x for old quality over new plastic or an ugly space gun. Volquartsen are hefty too. And look at the look!

I did consider the PMR30. I do not see any more QC problem with this gun than any other mass produced gun like ruger, etc. The problem appears to be a bad design. No amount of QC will over come a bad design. In contrast the KalTec sub2000 9mm rifles seem to run very well. KatTec had a sketchy QC reputation and the PMR30 is not helping. I think they can build low cost plastic crap right along side the big players like ruger. These guys will boldly go, where no other company has been. ( I know the OP said rifle, but; since it came up)

For the least shopping effort and fair value, the current CZ seems like an easy pick. The plastic is not obvious, seems harmless and keeps the weight down. Such is life in 2019.
