Magnum Research MLR22AT Review

You’ve probably already read Layne Simpson’s exclusive report on Kimber’s new flyweight Mountain Ascent rifle elsewhere on this website. Well, we have another brand-new featherweight rifle to report on. It’s Magnum Research, Inc.’s (MRI) new MLR22AT semi-automatic rimfire rifle. And like the Kimber centerfire rifle, the MRI flyweight is outstanding in the accuracy department. More on that in a minute.

Also like the Kimber rifle, the MRI gun weighs less than 5 pounds. Actually, the MLR22AT is rated at 4.25 pounds, unloaded and without an optic. With the Burris SpeedDot electronic sight I installed on it, the nifty, little rifle weighs in at 4 pounds, 14 ounces on my postage scale.

That just seems incredible to me. When I was a younger man, I didn’t mind hefting a heavy rifle around. I used to tote my Springfield Armory M1 Garand (9+ pounds) around the family farm and along the creek banks for what must have been days at a time back then and it didn’t bother me a bit. Nowadays, I much prefer to walk the fields and fencerows with my 6-pound 28-gauge Ruger Red Label. I guess age has its “advantages.” Anyway, this new MRI rimfire weighs even less than my Red Label!
