Does anybody out there make a semi auto 22 mag pocket pistol?

Far as I know, no one ever made one.
Very few semi-auto .22 Magnum pistols of any kind were ever made, and I don't recall ever seeing one in a pocket size.

These days, since you can buy any number of tiny pocket autos in substantial calibers like 9mm or .40 caliber, and more and more ultra-tiny .380 autos, manufacturers figure why even bother with a less effective, less reliable .22 or .22 Magnum.

AMT Auto Mag II

Only functions with Winchester ammo.

Shortest barrel was 3.75 inches.

DO NOT fire without hearing protection.

Good Luck

The available .22 Magnum Semi-auto's are far larger than normal pocket carry would allow. .22 Mag ballistics from a pistol barrel aren't that great, as most of the powder is ejected in a large fireball and bang.

Besides the tiny offerings from NAA in .22 Magnum, the only other useful revolvers are produced by Smith and Wesson and Taurus.

LOL... very true!

Here's a link to the S&W 351 PD. It's a 7 round revolver in .22 magnum. Cool gun except for the price... $853 MSRP I was saving for a 351 until I realized how expensive they were and you're still only getting a .22 mag out of a short barrel. I saved an extra $100 and bought an M&P 360 chambered in .357 Mag instead.
