Remington Rimfire Black Rifle: 597 VTR

I'm not sure if they are available yet. I haven't seen one yet personally, but it's on the official Remington website.

Remington 597 VTR product page.

Similar to the Excel Arms X-22R, and some other Ruger 10/22 conversions, Remington took one of their .22LR rifle actions, and put it in a chassis that accepts AR-15 stocks, pistol grips, and free float tubes. Remington only lists 10-round magazines, but I believe there are after market mags that hold 25+ rounds. EDIT: There's Remington Factory 30-round magazines listed in the Cabela's catalog.
