Magtech 7022 ????


May 26, 2005, 08:18 PM
Does anyone know anything about these? I bought one last weekend, it shoots well, and even works reliably with ammo it likes.
I got a good deal on it, but is it worth the aluminum it's put together with?
Also does any other manufacturers magazines fit it? They look similar to the Savage mags.I am hopeful here.
Thanks for any advice.

I own a MagTech 7022 and it is my grandson's favorite when we
go to the range.

The 7022 is now sold by Mossberg and I have seen 7022 magazines
for sale at WalMart, who carries the Mossberg 7022.

The orginal MagTech stock is a Brazilian hardwood but the Mossberg
stock is a synthetic with a schnabel forearm.

The bolt is almost identical to the Marlin Model 70, but the
ejector and firing mechanism are different. Disassembly is
not as easy as the Marlin.

I bought my 7022 when WalMart discontinued the MagTech version
and paid $60 for it and spare magazine for $10.

My Magtech .22lr is the best firearm I have bought for the money. I bought it brand new for $66 and I have at least 10,000 rounds of .22lr through it, with only a handful of cleanings. It seems to be just as accurate as my friends' Ruger 10/22's too. Put a cheap 3-9x40 scope on it and it is so accurate. I can repeadly hit used shotgun shells @25 yards. I have even shot it @ 200 yards at my steel target, lots of fun to have to wait to hear if you hit the target.

I plan to buy another when I need it. Only regrets are not sling swivels for a bipod, and no accessories or hi-cap mags. Mine has eaten and cycled perfectly with every type of .22lr I can find, even subsonics.

There is a red plastic piece in the back of the reciever that broke on me, no gun smith will help unless i have a part # , its in the owners manuel but i dont have one, it was damn good while it worked and id like it fixed. Thanks for the help

If you have any local gunsmiths that are worth a damn, and you have all the broken pieces, the 'smith can clay mould that red plastic piece out of Steel Bed glassing compound.
I assure you if it is done correctly you won't have to worry about that piece breaking again.

I don't know if it is exactly the same gun since I haven't actually handled a 7022 Mossberg or MagTech but the old MagTech bolt rifle was known as a 'Brazilian Remington'.
They are decent, if not awe inspiring, .22 rifles.
They also used to be imported in .22 magnum too, something you couldn't get from Remington since they had issues producing anything with the Winchester name connected to it,,,,,

The red plastic piece is a buffer that absorbs the recoil
of the bolt to avoid damaging the aluminum receiver,

The corresponding part on the Marlin M70 is a
yellow nylon buffer.

Mine broke on my 7022 also; I made a replacement from
thich laminated leather. Get a parts list from the Mossberg
customer service department.

Got that 7022 shooting again. If you go to they will send you any part you need. I was wondering if anyone knows if the 7022 will fit in ruger 10/22 stocks

The MagTech is 7022 will not fit a Ruger 1022 stock.
The MagTech 7022 has more in common with the Marlin .22
than with the Ruger, but it won't fit a Marlin stock either .

I know this is an old thread, but I have a question about the Magtech 7022, I managed to crack teh stock on mine, cracked the butt through, well my Dad is a very good wood worker and took it home with him to fix it, he didnt get to it as soon as he hoped and tragically his house burned down and the stock was lost in the fire. I was wondering if anyone knew of a site where I could order a replacement?? any help is greatly appreciated

Magtech Parts can still be obtained for this Gun. The recoil buffer broke on mine after 15 years of service. I called them today, and they are sending me one free of charge. Not bad considering the rifle only came with a one year warranty.
Their number is 800-466-7191.
