Name Some Hi-Cap Semi Autos in .22LR
#1
What is the 22 caliber handgun (conventional or not) that uses the highest capacity magazine?

I have two in mind, but wonder if there are others that I hadn't considered.

There's a Ruger 10/22 "handgun" I'm not sure if that's what it's sold as or not but the barrel is like 12" and it doesn't have a stock. Accepts any 10/22 magazines.

There are the .22 versions of .223s like an AR pistol or the Sig 556 SWAT pistol or even the GSG MP5k clone. All of those have approximately 25 round mags.

There is the Keltec PMR30 but that's a .22 magnum, but it's a .22 magnum pistol with I think a 30 round mag.

Then there is the Lakeside Razorback upper that can be mounted on an AR pistol lower. It's a belt fed .22....

The Ruger is called the Charger. It's just a 10/22 with a short barrel and no buttstock. The threaded barrels for them caught my eye for turning my 10/22 into a suppressed SBR with folding stock.

I have a Sig 522 and a Uramax HK MP5 and both are hich caps. Uramax also makes quite a few others as well, Colt M4, HK 416 plus some others. The S&W MP 22 AR is also hi-cap.

At first I thought you were mentioning rifles, but after searching, I see they have pistol versions as well...

That was along the lines of what I was thinking.

After getting that Chiappa .22LR upper, I saw that they also make a .22LR AR pistol...

I was thinking a matching pistol that could share mags would be sort of nice. That said, I THINK Black Dog mags work in the Chiappa - I don't know if any of the other AR pistols in .22LR would also work with Black Dogs, or if they use proprietary mags.



The only other non-typical "pistol" I can think of is the Calico...

Do you guys ever think they will make a PMR-30 chambered in 22LR? I would buy one if they made a swap in barrel for 22LR, I always wanted a 22 Mag firearm but it has to shoot 22LR for it to make sense for me.

I can tell you from my experiance that my Sig 522 and Uramax HK are both super reliable 22's. I have had only one malfunction with each and have over 2k+ rnds out of each.

Not a highly regarded firearm, but with the newer Ruger metal lip mags, a TEC-22?
50 rounds with one of the aftermarket mags.

I have one and as long as you don't use the magazine as a foregrip it is very reliable if kept clean.
Opinions widely vary though and parts are about non-existent AFAIK.
