If you think of .22 LR trainer rifles as cheap “plinking” firearms, the new Gunwerks Rim Reaper .22 LR Rifle System is here to change your mind. First, the price: at $ 9975, this can't be described as an inexpensive gun. But we are talking about a limited run of .22 LR trainer rifle systems built on the Gunwerks Magnus platform – a centerfire rifle – that includes a lot of high-end accessories and features, such as a Revic PMR 428 Smart Rifle Scope with RX1 MOA reticle, a 22"/558 mm carbon wrapped weight forward 5/8x24-threaded barrel, and an adjustable carbon Magnus stock.
In the price are also included a Bore Tech cleaning kit and rod, 1000 rounds of Eley Tenex .22 LR ammunition, an Inflection 200 round waterproof bullet box system and a SKB Skunkwerks custom hard travel case.
Trigger is a Trigger Tech Special factory set at 2 lb. Metal parts have a nitride and tungsten Cerakote finish. The rifle also comes with two 10 round Rim X AICS pattern magazines. A flashy Tectonic Orange stock finish round off the package.

“Handles, shoots and cycles just like a centerfire rifle”
“The result is a rifle system that handles, shoots and cycles just like your favorite Magnus centerfire rifle,” they say at Gunwerks. According to the claims, the Rim Reaper .22 LR Rifle System can in fact be used up to 500 yards right out of the box thanks to the combined precision and Custom Drag Model trued ballistics programmed in the Revic PMR Smart Rifle Scope .
The weight-forward carbon wrapped barrel is engineered to improve barrel harmonics and balance the rifle properly and the addition of a suppressor to the threaded 5/8x24 muzzle also allows for quiet shooting. Full customization is possible with the Magnus Adjustable Cheekpiece, along with up/down and cant adjustments in the recoil pad and modular length of pull.
At the end of the day, the Gunwerks Rim Reaper .22 LR is true to its name: a full rifle system designed to squeeze every bit of available precision out of your ammo.
