    It would crack cases and blow little shards of brass out the ejection port and into your face occasionally. But the real problem was inside the receiver. When I saw that remington had recalled them I took apart the receiver and the bolt had a hole in the underside of it. It wasnt huge but it was big enough for me to stop shooting it.

    Re: Semi Auto 22 Magnum

    Txnub, I understand about the cost, but even a decent .22 mag bolt action rifle will be $250 and up. Mostly up. I've tried 3 Marlins, but none of them shot better than 2" @ 100yds when I got them. I tried 11 different brands and types of ammo in them to give them a chance, but gave up and got rid of them.

    I haven't tried a Savage, but you're looking for a semi-auto anyway, so In my opinion, the discontinued Ruger 10-22 magnum is probably the best bet, but be prepared to spend at least $500 for a used one. If it's accurate, you're way ahead of the game. If not, the generous application of more money for a premium barrel, trigger, etc, will make an accurate rifle out of it. Unlike the 10-22 l/r's, the 10-22 magnums have steel receivers, a big advantage to me, and a good basis to assemble an accurate semiauto rifle on.

    Years ago, H & R made a semiauto .22 mag, also discontinued, but I don't know anything about them.

    In my opinion, the long-discontinued H & K Model 300 is the best of the semiauto .22 mags, but they're in the $1200 - $1500 range now, if you can find one. Also, clips for them are very hard to find, and are around $75 - $100 each.

    To sum up, there isn't much avilable in a good semiauto .22 mag, but like Dust said, I also would search Gunbroker, Guns America, etc. to see what is available and for what price.

    Good luck, Tom

    Thanks Spec. I don't mind spending around $500. I like the idea of the 10-22 magnum. I've been eyeballing those for a while. I guess its time to do some shopping...

    If you really want to impress him, find him a BRNO 611, very classy. in 22 Magnum. Hard to come buy, but very well worth it. Very nice wood and made all of steel. Never Malfunctions. I seen a couple on Gunbroker. I have one myself, with a Leupold VXIII 1.5x5 power, big game scope, parallax adjusted to 60 yards for rimfire use and a set of LYNX scope rings all steel.

    CZ is best for new production. a little stiff on trigger is all.

    remington is not the best shooter.

    got your hookup for a ruger in minty condition local around me if the guy would ship. i don't know him but if you're interested i'll send you a link.
