Brand New Keystone 722 PT ‘Precision Trainer’ Now Shipping

Back at the 2017 NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, we stopped by the Keystone manufacturing booth to check out the upcoming Model 722 PT rifle that they put together with the help of the guys over at AB*Arms.

The new rifle will feature either a 16.5″ or 20″ barrel chambered in .22lr and capped off with 1/2×28 threads that will accept either a muzzle brake or a suppressor as well as a 7 round detachable magazine. The Keystone Arms 722 PT will live inside of an MOD*X PT chassis machined by AB*Arms out of 6061 T6 aluminum mated to an AB Arms Urban Sniper stock and P*Grip pistol grip.

If you happen to have one of the full-size MOD*X rifles, the 722 PT will be a great rifle for you to work on fundamentals or let your kid partake in the fun that shooting a precision rifle before they are able to handle a full caliber rifle.

Weight on the new rifle is 6 pounds without an optic and rings. Sadly those are not included with the rifle and will need to be added later to the 5.68″ long picaninny rail already on the rifle. The rifle has a rather adjustable length of pull with lengths ranging between 10.5″ to 13.75″ so that the rifle will fit small children or full grown adults.

If you would like to know more about the super cool looking 722 PT rifle from Keystone Sporting Arms, check out their website HERE. MSRP is $599 for both barrel lengths.

      Hello, vital information. Why didn’t you visit the article? At least you’re in the comments.

        Crap. I thought I typed that.

    “Weight on the new rifle is 6 pounds without an optic and rings. Sadly those are not included with the rifle and will need to be added later to the 5.68″ long picaninny rail already on the rifle.”

    I would state ‘fortunately’ they are not asking the customer to pay for their choice in glass. That allows the end user to make a proper decision on what best suits their particular situation and needs.

    What other rifle would you use “Sadly those are not included” with when describing it?

    Are you sad your AR did not come with some cheap POS glass on it you paid for and would not use?

    IJS.

    FYI, some of the packages do come with a SImmons optic, so you might want to check out that ‘top end’ glass for your needs, LOL.

    Very cool. But as stated below, why no price?

  • Bradley

    What barrel length tops out an average .22lr load in velocity?

    • Audie Bakerson

      To my memory, it’s not relevent. You actually want 22 to be sub-sonic (I believe it was just under 16 inches of barrel for most loads) for must precision shooting because 22 is unstable supersonic.

      Uhm… going for velocity in .22 is shooting .22 wrong.

      AKA why you can’t reliably hit stuff past 70 meters.

    • Goody

      16″ is full speed & accurate. 22″ is quieter. A guy at the range had a stupid long CZ, maybe 26″ – the sound of his rifle was only as loud as the rounds striking cardboard.

  • iksnilol

    7 round magazines mess with my pseudo-OCD.

    • Goody

      Straight 10 round mags often don’t feed right. Marlin went with the same, I can only guess as a more reliable, inexpensive compromise.

      • iksnilol

        Just make them slightly curved on the inside, and then make the outside slightly larger so that you can maintain an external straight shape.

    I’ve purchased Keystones single shot rifles for my Grandsons and a pistol for myself, very happy with them. My only concern on this one is the trigger but I’m sure it will simple to home tune as their other products are. I’ve won some matches with my Chipmunk Silhouette pistol and I think it is the best deal going in a single shot .22 target pistol. .

  • Amanofdragons

    Any idea why the restriction on stingers?

  • utahbob62

    Wonder if they could be modified to shoot a Forter/straight pull action? PWS Summit?
