The question is a little difficult to answer as asked. MANY guns are centerfire. There are a number of calibers available that are rimfire, but the most common currently is a .22 or .17 family of cartridges. Almost all current larger calibers are centerfire.

What type of gun is a 22 magnum--rimfire or centerfire?

A .22 magnum round is a rimfire cartridge,Today. The first .22 magnum was a centerfire. it is very hard if not impossible to buy new centerfire rifels, however the shells are still plentiful. I think a much more accurate shell ,at least for me than the rimfire. my father had a centerfire .22 magnum rifle lever action, with the magazine running along the barrel. if anyone has one I am looking for one. my brother got my dads.
