Mossberg introduced the Tactical .22 rimfire auto-loading rifle.
Mossberg International has introduced the Tactical .22, an AR-style .22 rimfire rifle.
With the rising costs of centerfire ammunition, the new Tactical .22 rimfires are meant for recreational shooters, as well as those searching for a cost-effective training platform, according to Mossberg.
Taking cues from Mossberg's 702 autoloader, the Tactical .22 matches an 18-inch barrel to a quad rail forend, allowing the operator to fit the rifle with lights, lasers or other tactical accessories. Two stock configurations will be offered in this series: a six-position adjustable and fixed stock. The six-position polymer stock adjusts the length of pull from 10 3/4 inches to 14.5 inches to accommodate youth and smaller-framed shooters, as well as adults.
The fixed-position stock has a standard 13-inch LOP. The Tactical .22 is integrated with an A2-style carry handle and an adjustable rear sight aligned with a front-post sight.
The Picatinny handle mount is included, allowing versatility in scopes and other optics while providing the clearance necessary to utilize the AR-style sights. Other features included with the Tactical .22 are sling mounts and a 10-round magazine.
