why????

the .22 mag is a very non cost effective round...it is 4 times the expense of a .22 LR with maybe 10% more ballastics

I have a .22 mag, i WON at a DU dinner, winchester 9422 man I wish that gun was a .22 lr instead!!

I went to purchase one as I Love the 22 Mag. Lots of power for Coyotes and not near as loud as my 223 or GP-100. I talked to the local dealer and he is not selling them yet as the first few had jamming issues, Then if you read the kel-tec site they mentioned having issues with the company that heat treats their barrels. I will wait a year or so and then check on them again. :thumbsup:

Thanks for posting that they are having quality control problems.................

one would think that that would already been ironed out before they put it on the market.

That long round might not work in an auto to well? Maybe short and fat is better?

AMT / IAI also made a 22 mag and it was reliable as long as you used CCI maxi mags in 40gr. I see that Keltec also recommends this same ammo and has some ammo that they say not to use. It is possibly tuned to the higher velocity heavier gr ammo :huh:

I want one, although it will be unlikely unless Keltec can get it certified for sale in the peoples sozializt republik of kalifornia.

I carried a Keltec .380 in free America, where one could carry and was satisfied with the product. I shot the hell out of a .22 mag and enjoyed the extra punch it packed. It served it's purpose on prairie dogs out to 100-150 yards, I would love to try this pistol out.

But it goes to show Keltecs and .22 mag just isn't for everyone. If I never get one, that's fine - I still have my old Ruger Single Six which is the best rimfire pistol I have owned.

Too bad.......................

just thought that the 22 mag might be a heck of a ladys gun...........less recoil than the new , seldom heard of 327 mag
which is also a poor cost efecting round..............

Looks like the .355 dia bullets are the best "little" man on the pole.
