Mossberg has followed its introduction of the 20-gauge 500 FLEX and 500 JIC Flex pump-action shotguns with the FLEX-22 Autoloading Rifles.

Based on the Mossberg lines of .22 Long Rifle autoloaders (702 Plinkster and 715T), the FLEX-22 rifles come with free-floating barrels with a 1:16 twist rate, fully adjustable front and rear fiber-optics sights, synthetic stocks with stippled fore-ends, blue metal finishes, last-shot hold-open design and optional 10-round or 25-round detachable magazines.

The FLEX TLS System is an adaptable platform with patented connectors for reconfiguring stocks, recoil pads and fore-ends (FLEX shotguns only) for individual fit or specific use. Stocks can be swapped by lifting and turning the TLS latch on the receiver, removing the stock and sliding the replacement onto the connector. Once aligned, simply turn the TLS latch 90 degrees clockwise and close the latch. Recoil pads are switched from large, medium or small by depressing the TLS release buttons. The FLEX-22 accepts all FLEX TLD stocks and recoil pads.

The 25-round model features the six-position FLEX tactical stock with 11 to 14 inches of length-of-pull adjustments, a 16-inch barrel with an A2-style muzzle brake and a removable Picatinny rail for mounting optics.

The youth version features the FLEX compact fixed LOP stock combined with the compact recoil pad, an 18-inch barrel and a dovetailed receiver that accepts 3/8-inch scope mounts. It also comes with a 10-round magazine. The suggested retail price for the rifles is between $261 and $275.
