    I was researching some CZ rimfire rifles and I came upon this: CZ-USA -> CZ 512
    WOW!!!:wow: I didn't know there was any current production 22mag semiautos out there. I'm gonna look long and hard at this one. Might be on my short "to buy" list.:winner:

    The local shop has a Remington 597 in 22mag,right now.

    Now the 22 wasn't intended for a semi auto,but it does work........if the manufacturer has done it right.
    The problem with the 22mag is it is the same diameter but longer.Making it harder to tune the gun so it will cycle perfectly .That's why there is very few 22mag semis out there.The long skinny cartridge doesn't always want to cooperate.
    The Kel Tec states in the owners manual what round are best.
    Most 22s can be finicky on what ammo you should use.22 mags are worse.

    With all that said,CZ may have done this rifle perfect.But do you want to be the one who finds out different? For $450+?
    I would love to have a CZ22mag bolt gun.Not sure I would risk the money for a 22mag semi.
    22mag semis aren't big sellers ,new or used

    I don't get why you'd go for .22WMR instead of .223, when it's more expensive, lower performance, and harder to feed.

    I would love to have one had a rem 597 that worked ok but the CZ would be hot.

    Kel-Tec RMR .22 Magnum semi auto rifle scheduled for release end of this year. It will use the same 30 round mag as the PMR 30.
