I've got a few .22Mags...its become an addiction.
Grendel P-30, P-31, R-31
Marlin 25MN


Even with all those, I still want more...
Keltec PMR-30 on order...still waiting...grrrr
Always searching for a great deal on a Marlin 922 (semi-auto)...or a Marlin 1894M (lever-action)...
or a Marlin 57M (Lever-action)...just not willing to pay inflated auction prices...

What got me hooked was the Marlin 25MN...first time out, I sighted in iron sights and a few minutes later outshot a guy
who was using a scoped Savage in .17HMR on the 100-yard line...that sold me on the platform.
That led to getting a good scope and doing some serious varminteering!!
Its my go-to rifle for Varmints up to & including Coyote at up to 150-160 yards.



Later I tripped across a Grendel P-30 (father of the Keltec PMR-30) in rough shape, cleaned it up, polished the internals,
and its reliable as the day is long. Led to me getting the set. They work best with fat bullets (40- to 50- grain jacketed)


If you get a semi-auto .22WMR, be warned, few work well. Ruger has started & stopped the 1022M 5 times!!
I used the tips at GoldenLoki to get my Grendels humming right along...also works on ANY semi-auto.
