Magnum Research® Introduces the MLR Ultra 22LR Rimfire Rifle

July 17, 2014


Model: MLR22ATU

Model: MLR22ATUT

Pomona, NY – USA based, Magnum Research, Inc. (MRI) has once again expanded their Magnum Lite® rimfire rifle product line with the introduction of the MLR Ultra 22LR with a high-tech modular tensioned-type barrel.

The modular barrel means that it has been constructed utilizing a superior quality of steel for the barrel which is attached to stainless steel breech and muzzle caps inside a thin-walled aluminum construction. The Ultra barrel took over a year to develop internally at Magnum Research and was extensively tested utilizing a variety of ammunition. When tested for accuracy against similarly constructed barrels, the Ultra barrel outshoots them significantly. Part of the reason for this is the patented heat sink located strategically inside the Ultra barrel itself.

The MLR22ATU measures 36-1/8” in length and weighs just 4 lbs. 8 oz. Barrel length is 18”. Features include 1 in 16 twist, Bentz chamber, ambidextrous thumbhole stock design with a comb designed for scope use, integral Weaver type scope mount base on the receiver, extended magazine release, swivel studs and checkering on the palm swell grip. The length of pull is 13-5/8”. The barrel is black anodized aluminum and has stainless steel breech and muzzle caps. MSRP on the MLR22ATU is $544.00.

A similar model to the MLR22ATU is the MLRATUT. The difference between the two rifles is that the MLR22ATUT can accommodate a suppressor and has muzzle threads of ½ x 28. It is supplied with a thread protector. The weight is the same, but the overall length is 36-5/8” and barrel length is 18-1/2”. Both rifles utilize the 10/22® trigger group and 10/22® rotary magazines. MSRP on the MLR22ATUT is $571.00. Both barrels are also sold separately for upgrading 10/22 rifles.

Kahr® Firearms Group Breaks New Ground

June 2, 2014

Pomona, NY – A crowd of over 180 people shared in the celebration on Thursday, May 29th of the official ground-breaking ceremony of the Kahr Firearms Group new headquarters in Blooming Grove Township of Pike County Pennsylvania located in the Pocono region of the state. Justin Moon, CEO, Kahr Firearms Group welcomed Pennsylvania Lt. Governor Jim Cawley to the event which also included a number of key state officials.

Early last year, Kahr made the key decision to move the headquarters out of New York and move to the more gun-friendly state of Pennsylvania. The purchase included 620 acres of prime commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group. The ground-breaking ceremony christens the first step in the multi-phased relocation. The corporate offices and the research and development departments will be the first to be relocated. When the second phase commences, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet the increasing manufacturing demands for Kahr Firearms Group products.

“We are just a few months into the initial construction phase of our new corporate headquarters, and already the support we are receiving from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group, the local community, and even Governor Corbett has been extremely welcoming,” stated VP of Marketing and Sales, Frank Harris. “It clearly demonstrates how eager the state of Pennsylvania is to bring job opportunities to the citizens of the state, while also supporting our right to manufacture firearms.”

The move to Pennsylvania will make for a far more cohesive relationship between the firearms manufacturer and the State than what they have experienced in New York. As Kahr Firearms Group expands over the next few years, they will reach out to the community with the addition of employment opportunities.

Wild Things in Wild Places: Kahr® Firearms Group Welcomes new Tenant in PA


Pomona, NY – It is the type of story that you just don't hear very often. As land development eats away at wildlife habitat, chasing animals away from areas they consider to be home, one company is sharing their new headquarters property with the existing wildlife.

At the end of March, as Kahr Firearms Group was breaking ground on their new headquarters in Pike County, Pennsylvania, it was discovered that the 620 acre parcel was home to a female black bear and her cub. The bear den was located just 400 yards from where the crew was about to begin with the excavation for the new Kahr Firearms Group offices.

The construction crew notified Kahr, and the company immediately reached out to the Pennsylvania Game Commission for some assistance. When the game wardens arrived, they sedated the sow in order to exam her, check her vital statistics, and then tag her with a tracking collar. Only one cub was in the den and the game wardens determined that based on the size of the cub and the weight of the sow, that the bear likely had some health issues during hibernation. When the examination was complete, the bear cub and the sow were determined to be healthy and the game warden turned to Kahr Firearms Group owner, Justin Moon, and asked if he wanted the bears removed. “It was an easy decision for me. I felt that the bear and her cub had survived a very harsh winter and the den was their home. I strongly believe that man can cohesively share habitat with animals, so I felt the most respectful decision was to share the property with the bear and her cub.”

The sow and her cub were returned to the den and the decision to stay or move on was left to the 4-legged tenant on whether or not she and her cub want to stay. Since then, the crew has no additional sightings of the bears, but, everyone is hoping that they stick around and enjoy their new neighbors.

Don’t you love a story with a happy ending?

Kahr wants other firearms businesses to come to Pike County

April 12, 2014 | By Beth Brelje | The Pocono Record

Ground-breaking in Pike County for the new corporate headquarters of Kahr Firearms Group is likely in May, and a long-range plan for more gun companies is taking shape.

The gun manufacturer bought the long-empty 600-acre Pike County Business Park on Well Road in Blooming Grove for $2 million last year and will move its entire New York operation out of that state to escape what it describes as an unfriendly gun climate there.

“We would like to have a firearms-friendly business park. If other companies want to leave states with more restrictive gun laws, such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York, this is a great place,” company spokesman Frank Harris said. “We have lots available, and we would put up buildings. Pike County is a great place with a gun-friendly environment, right off Interstate 84.”

Kahr® Partners with Spyderco® to Introduce the Kahr Delica4

January 6, 2014


Kahr Spyderco Delica4

Pomona, NY – Kahr Firearms Group is proud to introduce the Kahr Spyderco Delica4, a distinctive variation of one of Spyderco's most popular folding knives available exclusively through Kahr.

Created by self-defense authority Michael Janich, the Kahr signature Delica4 offers Kahr its own unique design by combining a full-length handle with a compact 2.5" blade. The shorter blade makes it legal in jurisdictions with strict blade-length limitations without sacrificing leverage, control, or cutting power.

The Kahr Delica4 features a stonewashed VG-10 stainless steel blade with a smooth thumb ramp. The sturdy back lock mechanism locks the blade in place when open, and includes a Boye Dent relief cut to prevent unintentional lock release. The Trademark Round Hole™ found on all Spyderco blades ensures quick, positive, one-handed opening. Other features include the Bi-Directional Textured™ handle scales injection molded from fiberglass-reinforced nylon and skeletonized stainless steel liners that reduce the overall weight of the knife to just 2.5 ounces.

The perfect companion to Kahr's compact pistols, the Kahr Delica4 is also designed to maximize its concealment properties. It is offered in three discreet handle colors — black, khaki, and denim-blue — to blend discreetly with common pant colors. In addition, the blade, four-position pocket clip, and all other hardware feature a non-reflective stonewashed finish.

The Kahr Spyderco Delica4 is available through Kahr Arms at www.kahr.com and select Kahr dealers and distributors. The MSRP is $99.
