Default C&R Magazine-Fed Semi-auto .22 Rifles?

I recently saw a new to me magazine-fed Winchester 77 which has me tempted.



However, that's got me thinking now. What are other C&R eligible magazine fed semi-auto .22 rifles options out there outside of early Ruger 10/22 models?

I see old bolt action and tube fed .22s all the time, but I haven't noticed any old magazine fed ones before.

The US military used 22lr trainers such as the Mossberg 42b.

M1969 Romanian trainers. I have two and they're very accurate.

Those are slightly less semi-auto than the OP is looking for.

I had a French Unique brand .22 semi auto that was magazine fed. It was from the 50s and resembled a scaled down Winchester 1907.

You're right. The M1969 is waaaaay less semi auto.

Well, I got the magazine-fed part right.

I forgot the Marlin 60's been around for a while too. The Weatherby looks very nice.

Just looked up the Gill gun and that action is bizarre!

I didn't know they made a .22 version of the Reising. I'd love to get my hands on one of those, but I've never seen any Reisings in the wild thus far.

You mean the tube fed BA-22 and Remington 24?

And yes, the M1969 and Mossberg 42b are neat guns, but not quite semi-automatic.

Do they have to be fully semiautomatic?

I don't think the Unique is open bolt. The Gevarm is.

This is what I had. I didn't know about the bolt hold open feature on the safety!

I'm surprised no one mentioned the Remington Nylon 66.

I don't think the Nylon 66 was offered with a detachable magazine.

The Nylon 77 was and the earliest versions started turning C&R this year.

Yes the Nylon 77 is the mag fed version. I had one and then sold it.

I absolutely love mine. It's great. It was one year too young for c&r, but I still love it.

I have the Winchester 490, their version of a rimfire Model 100. Pretty sure it's C&R eligible by now. I like the 77 also and they always seem priced right.

I'd like to grab an H&R Leatherneck.

The 1950-1960s era Beretta Olimpia are C&R.
^They were made from the 1950s to the 1980s.

They are a .22LR semi-auto rifle that could be switched to bolt-action and it utilized (5 round & 10 round) detachable magazines.

That's funny, I've mistaked the Model 100 for a Ruger 10/22 from afar in the past so it's fitting that there's a rimfire version.

I went back for the 77 and unfortunately someone else snagged it

The Leatherneck looks cool, I'll keep an eye out for it.

I have a Glenfield Model 75 that a Marlin Model 99 M1 handguard fits on with a slight bit of fitting. it looks almost like a baby M1 Carbine after adding the Tech Sights aperture sight!
