Top Competitors Set New Records with the Magnum Research SwitchBolt Rifle!

PRESS RELEASE: 3 August 2020

Record Setting Speed
(Pillager, MN) - Two Magnum Research sponsored shooters recently set records for speed in the Steel Challenge Rimfire Open competition. Steve Foster was first at the Little River Sportsman's Association’s Tier I match, in Valdosta, Georgia, with a blazing 58.42 seconds time. He achieved this feat using a Magnum Research SwitchBolt rifle, firing ELEY Force .22LR ammunition. Steve is the Team Captain of the Steel Target Paint Shooting team, and is only the third shooter to break the 60 second mark in competition. Shortly after, Chris Barrett broke Steve’s record by shooting a lightning 58.05 second time at CMP Talladega. Of his rifle, Chris said, “My Magnum Research rifle performed flawlessly all day…I couldn’t perform at this level without the support of some of the top companies in our sport..”. According to Jodi DePorter, Kahr Firearms Group Director of Marketing, “Steve and Chris’s record setting achievements reflect Magnum Research’s determination to make its mark on competition shooting. The match ready SwitchBolt rifles are just the start. 2021 will be an exciting year for Magnum Research fans!” If you are a competition shooter interested in sponsorship, email
