20090205_yssalogoorange[1]The Youth Shooting Sports Alliance (YSSA) recently announced that Magnum Research Inc., Minneapolis, MN has generously donated 12 new Magnum Lite Stainless Steel .22WMR rifles to the YSSA in support of their Donated Firearms Program.

The Donated Firearms program, featured on YSSA’s website www.youthshootingsa.com, encourages the donation of firearms which, in turn, will be sold on GunBroker.com – the web’s largest hunting and sport shooting auction. Firearms are listed without a reserve bid and are awarded to the highest bidder. The Youth Shooting Sports Alliance, a 501(c)(3) private foundation, will provide donors with a tax deductible receipt upon the sale of each firearm.

These Magnum Lite stainless steel barrel .22WMR rifles include a combination of Hogue Overmolded, Barracuda Pepper and Barracuda Nutmeg stocks. The rifles feature an 18-inch straight bull barrel made from 4140 steel. The receiver is machined from aircraft aluminum. A tapered throat area aligns the bullet perfectly with the bore to maximize accuracy. Magnum Research’s patent-pending gas-assisted blowback system eliminates problems related to time-to-peak pressure issues with .22WMR ammo.
