    IIRC on the rimfire forums, there was some experimentation done with 17mhr. I believe the eventual issue that killed it was the blowback design. there were a few too many OOB detonations.

    hmmm, very interesting....

    id still take a bolt action version. seems like it would be a fun table top plinker/varmint management tool

    I do believe that the 10/22 rifles that are chambered in .22 magnum have different receivers than the standard .22lr rifles.

    There are a few people that have gotten the 10/22 to work with the .17hm2 but it requires heavier bolts/recoil springs. Most people that tried the conversions had OOB issues

    If I were ever to SBR/Suppress a 22 it would be a 10/22 but there are so many old take off barrels around I can't see buying a new Charger when one could just re purpose an old carbine.

    15 rounds standard and a threaded barrel?

    I like it. A mag I can get out without breaking fingernails and a suppressor ready barrel.

    Gotta be making old Bill ill. What a great short range varminter.

    I really like the addition of the 15rd mag. the 10 just goes poof too fast, and the 25 rounders have interference issues for the way i like to shoot mine.

    Thoughts on running one of these with iron sites? Maybe AR style on the rail?
