    Is there a such thing? I've seen the Grendel P30....Yuck.
    With so many .22LR pistols out there why isn't there any .22 mags?
    A Beretta Bobcat in .22 mag would be cool.
    Even a Glock conversion kit would be great.
    Am I out of luck?

    click on the amt-automag link on left side of home page.

    There are used versions of the original AMT on the market, average price is about $400.

    generally speaking they have feeding problems due to the way the cartidge is designed....but some guns do work with them alright, but its the exception not the norm....hence the revolver versions still flourish and the semi-autos are out of production or very scarse

    Even though I hate Kel-Tec, this looks pretty cool. I wish it had a scope mount like a Ruger Mark III instead of a frame mounted rail, though. A red-dot on that would be really handy.

    because they just don't work well due to case lenght

    If they did it would be a big seller.

    Ketec looks Very interesting.
    AMT sez in the manual to shoot only Winchester, tho I think other manufacturers have improved (upped the power level) of their ammo since then. I liked mine when I had it, but moved on to higher powered pistols.

    And the fact that differing ammo has totally different qualities. I understand (maybe wrongly) that the power is different enough between makers of 22mag that the PMR-30 uses a locked breach/blowback system that switches between methods depending on the power of the round.

    That could solve many of the problems, if it works right.

    If it actually works I'll get one w/o question. It's funky-cool looking but I'd have to swap out the Fisher-Price sights for some Novaks straightaway.

    Check out the Excel Arms Accelerator 22 mag. pistol (MP22 ) It comes with 2 Clips, and it takes about 200 rounds to break in, after that it work great.:cool:

    I’d love to take a close look at this gun when it becomes more widely available. I think it’s just cool. Nutnfancy looked at this gun at the SHOT during his Kel-Tec booth visit. The PMR-30 comes at the 27 minute mark in the video.
