Not all rimfires must sport a traditional look. The AR-styled Chiappa Mfour is a semi-auto rimfire with a detachable dual-aperture adjustable iron sight/carry handle assembly that removes for access to mounting optics on the Picatinny railed flat top receiver. The rifle is a lightweight 5.5 pounds, has an overall length of 34.25 inches and lower and upper receivers are made of polymer. ($558; chiappafirearms.com)
