Greeley, PA – Magnum Research is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the Scholastic Action Shooting (SASP) National Championship. The event will take place at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, OH July 9-16.
The family-friendly championship event invites youth, 12 years old through college age, to compete in a 4-station timed action shooting event – which includes four “Low Ready” challenges: Focus, Go Fast, In & Out, and Speed Trap. The SASP program is designed to teach young people about fair play, individual responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline and personal commitment while also competing in a fun event.
As a Silver Sponsor, Magnum Research has donated five .22 rifles from their Magnum Lite series. One of the donations is the MLR22ATUT which is a 22LR rifle featuring the new Ultra Barrel. This 18-1/2” long, high-tech, modular tensioned-type barrel took Magnum Research over a year to develop and is extraordinary accurate, in part, because of the patented heat sink located inside the barrel. The MLR22ATUT measures 36-5/8” in length and weighs less than 5 pounds. This model can also accommodate a suppressor and has muzzle threads of ½ x 28. Other features include: 1 in 16 twist, Bentz chamber, a black polymer ambidextrous thumbhole stock design with a comb designed for scopes, integral Weaver-type scope mount base on the receiver, and an extended magazine release. MSRP on the rifle is $596.00.
Also donated by Magnum Research is the MLR22H. This .22LR Hogue® OverMolded™ rifle is from the Magnum Lite® Series and features a patented graphite barrel which makes it lighter weight and has better heat dissipation than that of steel while still maintaining rigidity. This exceptionally accurate rifle features a 17” barrel, an overall length of 35.5” and weighs in less than 5 pounds. The integral rail can accommodate Weaver style rings for optics. The stock is a Hogue OverMolded model. The MSRP on the MLR22H is $669.
“We are so happy that Magnum Research, Inc. has joined the Scholastic Action Shooting Program as a Silver level sponsor” stated National Director of SASP, Tammy Mowry. “With the rebranding of the Scholastic Pistol Program earlier this year to the Scholastic Action Shooting Program and the addition of the rimfire rifle program, Magnum Research’s .22 rifles will fit nicely into our program.”
