Mitchell’s Black Lightning .22 WMR Delivers Power And Accuracy
It’s a rarity in the gun world when the name of a new model captures the spirit of the firearm. There are just too many A7s, 7s, 70s, 75s, 77s, 700s, 750s and 770s out there. What is this industry fixation with assigning non-descriptive numbers to their firearms, particularly if the model number is derived from the root of 7? That’s why it was refreshing to see Mitchell’s Mausers market a sleek, ultra-modern, semi-auto .22 WMR with the fast-stepping name, “Black Lightning.” Composed of stainless steel cloaked in black polymer, it does indeed give the impression of a fast, flashy, potent little rimfire, and indeed, it is.
Long known as a unique source for pristine condition Mausers, Lugers, P-38s, 1911s and military sniper rifles, Mitchell’s Mausers has earned a solid reputation for marketing unusual, interesting and classy firearms. Well, the Black Lightning certainly has class and style. It’s a racy, spacey-looking rimfire magnum and frankly, it’s been too long since we’ve seen a new, semi-auto chambered for the hot-performing .22 WMR.
