With everything else going on, you may have missed the Radical Firearms RF/22 – a match-grade long rifle chambered in .22LR.  

Here’s what you missed. 

The RF/22 was designed with the shooting enthusiast in mind. It’s a sleek, solid, well-designed semi-auto you can use to plink, target-shoot, or bring doom upon the local varmint OPFOR using pretty much any sort of Ruger 10/22 compatible magazine available. 

Some of its features include an integrated Picatinny rail, a precision-machined bolt, and a match-grade barrel.

  1. Interesting. Sounds like they have made some bolt/receiver mods. Any idea how it compares with the TC version of the 10/22?

    • At first glance, it looks like there’s some pros and cons. No mention of a last round bolt hold open, like the TC has. Doesn’t look like it has sights. Trigger is probably better and so is accuracy. I’m pretty sure my TC won’t shoot 1MOA, but I’ve never run match grade ammo through it. Considering I only paid 200 bucks for it, I’m very happy with it, though.

  2. Reasonable price, but they’re giving up a lot of sales in ban states like NY. Being semi auto, that threaded barrel and brake make it assaulty.

  3. Guaranteed at one minute of angle or better accuracy.
    At what distance using what ammo? 100 yards using Remington Thunderbolt 40g LRN? 50 yards using Eley Match 40g LRN? 5 feet with CCI .22LR shot shells?

    Profound & reality-altering questions aside, looks like a nice gun for someone looking for an out-of-the-box upgraded 10/22. Their pricing looks to be about what it would cost for someone to upgrade a standard Ruger 10/22 to this feature level.

  4. Not sure why they would put a muzzle brake on a 22. I can see the threaded barrel, but just throw on a head protecter. And call it good.
    For twice the price as the 10-22, is it twice as good?

    • “For twice the price as the 10-22, is it twice as good?”

      Is under 1 MOA twice as good accuracy?

  5. $700 , it even comes with a stock made from the rare and expensive plastic tree.
    Definitely need a muzzle brake on the hard recoiling .22Lr.
    Nice riffle,
    most .22’s in this price range are pieces of of junk.

    • “…it even comes with a stock made from the rare and expensive plastic tree.”

      I have fun educating the checkout girls at the grocer about how horrible it is to cut down the plastic tree that makes up their grocery bags.

      The terrible anguished screams as the plastic tree dies in the jaws of the plastic tree harvester machine.

      I’ve only had a couple who got the joke and laughed. The typical response is just a confused look… 🙂

  6. As long as I can just as easily convert it to “go faster”, using simple hand tools, just like a Ruger. then I may consider getting one.

  7. Curious as to what results an independent valid test drive would produce as opposed to marketing hype. RF has never been known for fine fit or finish, more for lower end AR parts and accessories. The most common description for a BX trigger would be “better than stock”, my choice would be “mediocre”.

    • Compared to a crappy stock trigger, it’s a *huge* improvement…

  8. @$700 msrp, no thanks. I’d spend less building a dedicated .22 LR upper. Couldn’t use it at our local matches as they are Bolt Action Only/No SA’s. I’ll sick with my CMMG Conversion kit, it’s accurate enough that I seldom miss a prairie dog.
    .22 LR ammo is too scarce right now, to justify investing in another. 22.
