    There have been a number of 22 Magnums over the years.
    Even Ruger made a 22 Magnum version of their 10/22 but eventually
    suspended production..
    Now the little magnum is making a comeback.
    See Excel Arms, Magnum Research, AMT, and now Kel-Tec
    all making either rifles, pistols or both..
    All of which claim to have overcome the cycling problems inheirent with
    the 22 Magnum in a Semi-Auto.

    My question is, does anyone have any experience with the Excel Arms
    rifles or pistols in this caliber?

    I would really like to add one (of each) to my collection..

    Thanks for your advice..

    The Kel_Tec works well with the .22 mag round. At first I had a few FTL but after 100 rounds and a good cleaning it works well and very smooth now

    I had an AMT with the 6'' barrel and never havd an issue with it. It was actually my carry gun when thats all I had for a handgun 20+ years ago.

    I have a Excel .22 WMR rifle, nothing but problems. Look further.The gun jams, has problems with spent shell ejection.

    If you don't have the $, check out the Mossberg 715T.
    If you have the $, see the CZ 512.
