    I love that the scope doesn't stick out past the lower half of the rifle. Which scope is that?

    You must be talking about a Browning SA 22/ Norinco JW 22. If Norinco made a copy of a BAR 22, we'd have them here where Norincos are a dime a dozen.

    My local gun shop has a pair of the Browning copies for $250 each if I recall correctly, both look practically new. He also has a Browning for $375 I think. I was thinking about buying another, mine is 1950s vintage and has been used but not abused.

    Hey. Huge difference between a BLR and a BAR 22. Like $1000. The pic from Budman is a Browning SA 22. Used here $450. New $765. Norinco copies here are $199.

    Great little inexpensive scope that has held up perfect on my 10/22. BSA Tactical Weapons 4x30 Found mine on Amazon. I don't have to remove it to put it in the Ruger take down bag either.

    I really like the BLR 22. Brought one home about 8 months ago. Great little short throw lever. I showed it to Ann and she reminded me that our 16 year old grandson was having a birthday soon. He is now in procession of that BLR 22. So when I brought the Browning auto 22 it went directly into the safe. I will now use it in the CMP rimfire sporter match.
    A fellow brought in 3 Belgian Browning auto 22s the other day to be cleaned. They were very nice and one was a Midas I think. Those guns were worth some big bucks.

    The Norinco gun shoots very well, cant say anything bad about it. I just wanted the Browning.

    Milq , A conversation has been started with you .



    Wish it would work for me , if there is a way to buy from out of the country , a heads up or a good discussion right on this thread would be a good topic to start .





    Bud , Milq , and anyone else here in the states that can help . I sure would appreciate a line on a copy of the Browning 22 would be great .

    Thank all of you for the help . Also , I check Gunbroker and Guns America when I think about it .

    Good Evening Fellas .

    Not sure but I don't think they let Norinco guns into the USA. Like I said a dime a dozen here in Canukstan. You can get a nice 1911 .45 or 9mm for $345. new. All steel pistols with beaver tails and ambi safeties. Just about everyone I know here has at least one except me. I have a Kimber.

    I'll check out your reply in the morn , I have to get down for the evening . Thank You much Milq .


    I think they started turning the Norinco firearms away about 15 or so years ago , I think . Maybe someone here could elaborate on this .

    Them are some helluva prices you mentioned . We on this side would be firearmed out . lol

    Shot a SW22 today. What a blast! Definitely a winner(pun intended). Nice balance, hefty weight, little reaction from .22lr.

    Did a cleaning on the SW22 and other than the screw holding the barrel and bolt on being very tight, it is amazingly simple to take down.

    That one screw.

    Cleaned up and ready for the next session.

    Wonder how we are doing with legalizing suppressors because this thing is ready for one.
