    Excel Arms .22 Magnum Pistol

    These may appeal to any rimfire fans we have on the board, especially those fond of Browning Buckmarks and the Ruger MK series.

    I love the .22 Magnum cartridge. Whether from a pocket revolver, auto pistol, or rifle, the little magnum performs all out of proportion to its size. With the right bullet, it is an excellent penetrator, displaying more penetration than many larger calibers. While I would rather not, I could get along quite well with nothing but a .22 Magnum. From a revolver, the .22 Magnum performs much like a .22 Long Rifle cartridge fired from a carbine, but with a better bullet. From a closed-breech pistol, the .22 Magnum really shines, suffering no loss of velocity as does the cartridge fired from a revolver, due to the revolver’s barrel/cylinder gap.

    There have been a few .22 Magnum auto pistols manufactured over the years, and some have been better than others. The .22 Magnum AMT Automag II is back in production, and I reviewed one here back in November of 2006."

    Very interesting. The biggest drawback to .22mag is price. Very expensive from what I've seen. That and the noise. Even with plugs in the sonic crack of a .22 mag just tears me up for some reason.

    I have one of those cowboy gun SA types, that have changeable cylinders so I can use the 22LR or 22Mag. The reason I got it was every 22, or 22mag I saw was gonna cost me more than the 357 that I bought, and the 9mm PT111. I needed something I could afford to shoot more than a dozen rounds in a day.

    The expense of the gun is what drove me too the one I bought.
    I would not want a target quality 22, or a semi auto due to picking up brass on my home range is a bear.

    But they sure are cheaper to shoot, and enjoy. I can just about take the center out of a target with 22MAG, from a 4.75 inch barrel SA.
