Product Description

This Magnum Research MLR .22WMR / 22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire (MLR22WM) rifle is equipped with the Magnum Lite® revolutionary patented graphite barrel, exclusive to Magnum Research, or a stainless steel barrel. The patented uni-directional graphite fibers in the MRI graphite barrel, are parallel to the bore axis; and results in a barrel with 6x the stiffness of the equivalent weight of steel. The lighter barrel weights (from 13-16 oz, depending on barrel length) are easier to wield and dissipate heat up to 43% faster than steel. The result is rim fire performance of extreme accuracy.

Other features of the MRI Magnum Lite® 22 Win Mag Rimfire include a Hogue OverMolded stock and a full floating barrel with an 11 degree muzzle crown for maximum accuracy. Magnum Lite® receivers are CNC machined from a 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum forging and include an integral Weaver type rail for optics. The MLR22WM from Magnum Research has an approximate weight of 7.45 lbs, barrel length of 18 inches, and over all length of 38 inches.

The Magnum Lite® rifle utilizes the Ruger 10/22® trigger group and the Ruger 10/22M® nine-shot rotary magazines. MRI bolts are manufactured and machined from heat treated and through hardened 4140 steel with minimum headspace for better accuracy.

The patented graphite barrel is unique to MRI. It provides lighter weight, better heat dissipation than steel and is extremely stiff.

The Magnum Research MAGNUM LITE® receivers are CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machined from a 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum forging and include an integral Weaver type rail for optics. The bolts are manufactured and machined from heat treated 4140 steel with tight bolt face depth tolerances for better accuracy.

In all, The Semi-Automatic MLR-22-WM Magnum Lite® 22 Winchester Mag Rimfire Rifles make an excellent home-defense firearm for the person searching for a lightweight rifle option. The MLR-22-WM has a unique gas-assisted blowback operation and block under the barrel that taps a small amount of gas through a orifice hole in the barrel, an evolution of the classic design. With 10/22 Rotary Magazines and Trigger Group from Ruger, this MRI MLR22WM .22WMR rifle is available in many configurations.

The Gas System of the Magnum Research Magnum Lite® MLR-22-WM

The Magnum Research Magnum Lite® MLR-22-WM, .22 Win Mag version has a patented gas system and block under the barrel that taps a small amount of gas through a orifice hole in the barrel.

*This Rifle is designed to shoot 40 grain and 50 grain ammo ONLY. Firing 30 grain ammo will void the warranty* (MAGNUM RESEARCH) Magnum Research MLRS22WMH Chamber


The Chamber of the Magnum Research Magnum Lite®

The barrel has a very special chamber designed for accuracy. This chamber is tighter and has a shorter tapered throat or lead into the rifling. This throat is intended to perfectly center the bullet in the rifling prior to firing the round. This is a common throat in a match semi-auto rifle, but it is also NOT a universal "shoot all" chamber. It requires good ammunition. Most promotional ammunition will not function well in it. That is by design; we have designed this barrel as an accuracy barrel.

The Ammunition of the Magnum Research Magnum Lite®

Many shooters have many different uses for the barrels of their rifles. Some uses are for hunt, plink, varmint and target shoot, even seriously target shoot. This barrel is capable of it all, with the correct ammo. To find the correct ammo first decide what you want to do with it, then purchase several different types of ammo that meets your ultimate goal and try them out, select the best performing one and have fun. Selection should be based on function and accuracy. Some legitimate match grade ammunition will shoot great but is subsonic and will not cycle the action of a semi-auto rifle. Most promotional loads will not shoot well and will not function well in a semi-auto. There are many moderately priced brands that function the semi-auto action well and shoot extremely well. Magnum Research uses the CCI (Cascade Cartridge Inc.) standard velocity ammo as a benchmark when we function test the MLR rifles. It is standard velocity ammo that shoots very well and will cycle the semi-auto actions.

My first 22 magnum rifle. Took it out yesterday for first time, used a trs 25 Red Dot. Took me one shot at 25 meters to get on paper, adjusted for first 3 shot group, adjusted for second 3 shot group and hit center target. Shot 3 more to verify, then just spent the rest of the afternoon having fun. I'm very happy, it is a shooter. Used CCI Maxi-Mag 22 WMR, total metal jacket 40 grain.
